Samhain XXIII offers a vision into the future, or is it the past? Such is the nature of Samhain, the loop point of all time, where the past becomes the future and the future is past. Here we celebrate the root of it all, with a line-up that would make Hades blush. This is our second Samhain at the Tangent, going til 5am, after last year's scorcher we decided to go even deeper. Coming all the way from New Hampshire, this will be the Detroit debut of T4T LUV NRG’s mobile sound rig, a monument of intention, conceived by Eris & Octa, and operated by Faited of Oakland’s Envelope Soundsystem. This ecstatic experience will be helmed by T4T family from Detroit and Chicago — Beige and Sold, with a special closing set from Eris Drew & Octo Octa. The Dark Room will feature the chthonic cerebral yet mentally freeing sounds of Rrose, Patrick Russell and IT residents Erika and BMG. Dimensions collide as we celebrate not only Samhain but this special conjunction of artists and crews. We shall cleanse and renew, absorbing all the energy and space for the fleeting but deeply needed moments of freedom that we all deserve.

BMG on Samhain:

"It's the Celtic holiday that Halloween spawns from. It was the loop point, the new year. Ancient people dealt with grey areas in strange ways, the change between years caused this loose period existing between the end and beginning. This is where it gets interesting: they believed dimensions were colliding in a sort of interdimensional crosstalk, where the planes of the living and the dead were touching, so the dead could walk the earth. A way to convene with your ancestors, and a great reason to burn fires and scare your friends and neighbors. There's way more to it, most of it can't be written, it can only be felt, which is usually elusive but somehow easy at this time of year."
