The Goth Invasion of Portland

The Goth Invasion of Portland

Three Day Pass

My name is Sabriel and I am the creator of The Goth Invasion. The Goth Invasion is a Not For Profit that I created to bring the Gothic community together with live and virtual events. Ever since I was 9 I have loved the Gothic style and have loved Halloween. I went to my first haunted house at that age and would always dream of my own haunted house which ended up growing into a Halloween themepark in my imagination. It was not until I went to my first Goth club at 16 when I added the fact it would also be a place where the Gothic Community can come together with the Halloween attractions by bringing in all styles of Gothic performances, art and music.

The Goth Invasion did not get its name till 2017 a year after I moved to Burns Oregon. Which was also the year when I started talking about it to the public and published the website. I created my first event that did not go over well because I forgot the one key component, music. The idea of The Goth Invasion in Portland came a little later when a good friend of mine in Portland said I should do a smaller event in Portland OR to help raise the money needed for the bigger 7 day festival in Burns Oregon that I was always talking about and that is when I began working on the PDX event.

Die Robot

Die Robot

Die Robot is an American Alternative Rock, Electro-Industrial band. This is future rock in a post-industrial age. Their sound straddles rock and electronic with a wide appeal. Unique, haunting, and romantic, Die Robot is full of angst and soul with the groove of a predatory animal.

Vince Christian provides powerful vocals and a fierce performance. Barbie Saint's strings are dark and passionate, combining not only bass and guitar, but synthesized leads simultaneously, a unique sound accomplished with special custom gear designed for Barbie by RMLfx. Zane Hamilton's electronic drums, keys and synth fill the dance floor and Rosmic Z's guitars accentuate an engaging performance, producing an intense electronic plus analog soundscapes.

Their name came about while watching the first Alien film. Bassist Barbie Saint shrieked "Die Robot!" as Ripley fought Ash the Android, and there they had it. The four piece is techno punk; Colorful, energetic, a little bit sci-fi and a little bit Mad Max. Post-apocalyptic entertainment you can dance to.

Having released their debut full length album "Technopunk" in 2018 and since their formation, Die Robot toured around the USA twice with incredible turn outs, and performed with artists like Stabbing Westward, Clan of Xymox, The 69 Eyes, The Birthday Massacre, Orgy, Conjure One (Front Line Assembly, Delerium), Unter Null, God Module, 16volt, Vince Clarke (Erasure), David J (Bauhaus) John 5 (Rob Zombie), Julien-K, Night Club, Kite, among many others.

They are claiming a spot as one of the elite bands in the Electronic Industrial Rock circuit.

Cliff and Ivy

Cliff and Ivy

Cliff and Ivy are Alaska's goth duo, and Alaska's only goth band.With a solid background in punk and metal, they bring a traditional goth/deathrock sound into a new world. Together for many years, their live shows are exciting, theatrical and poetic, with some spoken word and original art shadow masks for the audience to participate and take home. Inspired by art, punk, hardcore, old school goth and EBM, horror movies, no wave, industrial music, tribal music, current events and unwritten history, they have been compared to Killing Joke, Ministry, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Cure, and Dead Can Dance. They were named World Goth band 2019 by World of Goth magazine. Their music and art speak to your soul, proving that dark music and art happens everywhere, even under the midnight sun.
