COMBICHRIST & WILLIAM CONTROL play LIVE at 53 Degrees Weds 10th Dec

Dark-Cide is VERY proud to announce, playing as part of their UK tour on Weds 10th December,  Combichrist! Supporting them will be another of our all-time fave acts, and indeed who played an amazing show for us back in May 2013 at our first ever Dark-Cide-Fest – William Control!!

FACEBOOK EVENT LINK << Please share and invite – let’s make our last ever gig here a stunner!

Combichrist and William Control live at 53 Degrees, Dark-Cide 14th December 2014

Tickets are STRICTLY limited to 370 as this will be upstairs in the Clubroom of 53 Degrees. As the venue is winding down operations then (they are sadly set to close at the end of this year), this show, unlike our VNV Nation show back in 2013, WILL NOT BE MOVING DOWNSTAIRS EVEN IF WE SELL OUT THE UPSTAIRS CLUBROOM – so please be sure to get your tickets early to avoid disappointment.

Tickets will go onsale at various outlets soon, but we have 100 earlybirds that you can buy advance tickets from this website only without booking fee NOW and with FREE postage on the paypal link below. This offer is only open for 7 days (4th July), and all tickets will go onsale at full price plus booking fees after this date or sooner if earlybirds sell out.

UPDATE: HUGE thanks to the tremendous early take up of the earlybirds and we sold 90 out of 100 of them in all (which is a major help with the upfront costs for us of putting on an event of this scale). There’s now just 280 left and are now onsale through many outlets. We still have a number of tickets here from our website (30 in total) which you can still grab via paypal below.

[Please note, this is an over 16+ event and please bring valid ID]


Here are two of the latest videos by Combichrist and William Control (please note both are DEF NOT WORKSAFE!)


This will be an incredible gig and sure to be a great ’bonus event’ for us to finish our wonderful run at 53 Degrees (our last being a few weeks after on 31st Dec New Years Eve, which will be the closing down event – please scroll down to see more info below)

For those who’ve never been to 53 Degrees before, this is an awesome venue with a killer soundsystem, lights and facilities. Here’s a ‘rather drunken’ collection of video clips fromwhen we flew in Germany’s SAM to play one of our previous events to give you an idea of things.

More news on this incredible show, including who will be the extra support act, soon…

and here’s the same William Control track phonecam filmed in amongst the throngs when William Control played our Dark-Cide-Fest back in May 2013

Both acts are incredible seasoned performers – COMBICHRIST plus WILLIAM CONTROL will be an incredible show and a great one for Dark-Cide to end our run of gigs at 53 Degrees which we’re incredibly sad about – we’ve had Nachtmahr Uberbyte and Kommand+Kontrol ’09, The Birthday Massacre in ’10, Phosgore in ’11, SAM and Sigue Sigue Sputnik in ’12, Gothminister William Control Marionettes The Cureheads Pretty Addicted Squid Mechanical Cabaret Sinnergod Phosgore (again!) and VNV Nation in ’13, Zombina & the Skeletones Jensen Vince Ripper & The Rodent show this year, and now Combichrist and William Control (and one more live act to be confirmed), PLUS the venue has Gary Numan this July 1st (and they had New Model Army last year)!!!

As they say, ‘all good things must come to an end’ and looking at that list, that’s a fantastic list of good things. HUGE thanks to everyone who’s come along over the years and supported those shows and Dark-Cide and the venue, and hope you can manage to come along to this show, and our ‘Final Three at 53′ clubnights (details below).


53 Degrees set to close end of this year sadly. Just 3 more Dark-Cide’s left !

Breaking News: 53 Degrees is sadly closing at the end of this year. We’ve still three more Dark-Cides though and we’ve made each one a special – hope you can come along.
