St. Vitus Dance Party setlist: July 1, 2015

The second St. Vitus Dance Party was an awesome one. Bigger crowd than the first (which was still pretty good!), lots of dancing, lots of fun, and of course some great music. There were a few funny things that happened, like one woman who was confused that a goth night was happening in a “hipster bar,” or the girl who accidentally leaned on the turntable and stopped a record mid-song. Maybe next time I’ll close the door (yeah, I should do that). Anyhow, lots of good post-punk, goth, synth-pop and other jams were on the setlist. Here’s what I played.
