In an act of ultimate spookiness, heavy metal/neofolk artist Chelsea Wolfe brings everything we love about Halloween– hauntings, a thinning veil, enthusiasm for all things goth– to a sold out show at the Sinclair today, October 19th. Openers, Youth Code, will add an extra element of angsty darkness with their industrial dance music.
While the L.A.-based openers are known for pushing safety-code regulations onstage, Wolfe is celebrated for pushing musical boundaries. Her sheer aura, in combination with the specter-summoning marriage of black metal and doom folk, can suck the air from a room. And you’re going to want a spot in that room. Touring in support of Hiss Spun, her most recent, most face-melty album yet, Wolfe is sure to bring some of the biggest amps the Sinclair has seen so far in 2017. Bring your ear plugs, friends.
But if you’re one of the many who didn’t score tix to probably the best Halloween party that’ll hit Boston this year, just crank up the volume on these heavy af tunes off Hiss Spun so that no one can hear you cry.
