TUESDAY PICK | Aesthetic Perfection keep the goth beat at Ground Zero


Show of hands—now, be honest. Who realized Ground Zero was still a thing? Indeed it is, and it’s still host to shows like the July 3 gig by the electrogoth outfit Aesthetic Perfection. What better way to celebrate your freedom this Independence Day Eve than fighting for your right to don fishnets and eyeliner and party like it’s 1988? If you see the girl in the audience with the kitten ears, bustier, fur boots, and flaming poi balls, say hi for me and ask her to tell you about the time she played Space Invaders for Neil Gaiman at Orchestra Hall.
