From the folks that brought you the anachronistically fantastic, Clockwork Ball, comes the latest chance to shake a tail feather!

It's the AETHER LOUNGE with That Darling DJ Duo! Featuring a live performance by Shady Darling & the Velvet Curtain at 8:30pm.

Shady Darling and the Velvet Curtain is a female fronted soul funk cabaret band out of Durham, NC. This songstress of southern soul sings tales of murderess madames and deathly seduction laced with speakeasy jazz and mournful blues. Her shape shifting musical associates were discovered in the dusty corners of burlesque lounges and the shadowy flaps of circus tents. With roots from Louisiana to Appalachia, this band of misfits is sure to tempt and tease the senses with rich original compositions and odes to the musical inspirations of decades past. Come one, come all for a timeless show of music and mischief!

That Darling DJ Duo is the high-energy tag-team, Emmett Davenport and Lady Attercop. One part frustrated Vaudevillians searching for a stage, and one part 80s era rockers with too much hairspray and not enough adult supervision. They spin an eclectic mix of everything from torch songs, swing, indie, electronic, punk, funk, 80s new wave, neo-vintage, and neo-folk to good old fashioned favorites. They will get your rump thumping and your blood pumping.

Admission: $10, 21+
Doors @ 8pm ; Live Music @ 8:30pm ; DJs @ 10pm
Appropriate Dress Admired | Not Required

DIRECTIONS: Arcana is in Downtown Durham, NC near the intersection of West Ramseur Street and West Chapel Hill Street. Google Map Link: 

Your best bet to find them is to make for 156 Ramseur Street, Durham, NC 27701. Their door is just to the left of the rear entrance of Beyu Café. Yes, Arcana’s official address is 331 West Main Street, Durham, NC 27701, BUT it can be like finding Platform 9 ¾, if you’ve not been there before. 

GPS coordinates for the parking lot are 35.995765̊, -78.903616̊. There is free parking in the large lot right outside their door after 7PM except when there are large city events. There is also parking along Ramseur Street, and a parking deck next to the lot, but you’re unlikely to need them.
