London After Midnight brings their "Un-American" Tour to our Nation's Capitol in celebration of their newest release "Violent Acts of Beauty". The first official tour in a decade, fans who've already attended the first shows have already said it was well worth the wait. The 10,000 fans at the Wave Gothic Treffen festival can't be wrong! This will be London After Midnight's first visit to DC, and we know it's going to be an incredible show you won't want to miss!
We're also pleased to have The Dark Clan joining the stage on June 19th.
The Dark Clan, created by Dan Clark (well-known for his dynamic stage presence and blazing live performances as a member of bands like Null Device, and Stromkern) is a guitar driven good time!
With regular club play, a few of The Dark Clan's song's such as "Beauty", "Lestat in Cuba" and the newest "The Vampire Wore White" should be familiar to the dance floor junkies out there.

Also with them will be actress Monique Dupree, who has appeared in such B horror classics as Bikini Bloodbath Christmas and Cottonmouth. Seriously, what's a night of horror without a scream queen?

Steven Archer, when not in the DJ booth, will have his artwork on display. He'll be proudly showing some of his newest pieces created from the recent collaboration with Weird Tales Magazine.
Speaking of Artwork...some say he's scary, but truth be told...the DC Scene's very own Eric Dunn a.k.a. Slash, is one talented man. He'll be adding to the mayhem, and showing off his artwork as well.
Weird Tales Magazine will also be on hand to talk about their latest projects.
Stephen H. Segal is the editorial and creative director of Weird Tales, the very first fiction magazine dedicated to dark fantasy, strange horror and other stories of the unique and bizarre.
Originally founded in 1923, Weird Tales launched the careers of H.P. Lovecraft ("The Call of Cthulhu"), Robert E. Howard ("Conan the Barbarian"), Ray Bradbury ("The Illustrated Man"), and Robert Bloch ("Psycho"), to name just a few. Its legendary cover artist Margaret Brundage was the 1930s-era predecessor of today's goth-fetish fashion designers. The magazine was resurrected in the 1980s and has featured the work of Stephen King, Tanith Lee, Caitlin R. Kiernan and Thomas Ligotti. And this year, Weird Tales' 85th anniversary, marks the exciting debut of a new look, a new team of cutting-edge artists and writers, and several new online projects including "The 85 Weirdest Storytellers of the Past 85 Years" and Steven Archer's "365 Days of Blasphemous Horrors."
