Ybor City’s darkwave roots show on Friday when post-punk outfit Push Button Press brings what it calls “intelligent lyrics and upfront vocals with pop sensibilities” to the Orpheum. The local duo—which recently added Prescribed Fire’s Shawn Watkins on drums—shares a bill with Wilton Manors’ gothic rock band Obsidian (hopefully playing some of the dark magic from last year’s Vultures EP).
DJs Azy and Acidbitter provide goth, darkwave, post punk, and industrial jams throughout the night. A mask is required for entry, and what’s a better way to celebrate surviving the first hurricane of the season than a group dance to Ministry’s “Burning Inside”?
Push Button Press w/ObsidianDJ Azy (Obscura Undead)/DJ Acidbitter. Friday, July 9, 8 p.m. $12-$15. Orpheum, Ybor City. eventbrite.com
