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.

Adrian H and the Wonds

Adrian H and the Wonds

ADRIAN H AND THE WOUNDS are your post-goth storytellers. The immediate reference of their dark, brooding music with lyrics of great narrative power and poetic bent draw to mind references such as NICK CAVE, GARY NUMAN, LOU REED, but they are eclectic enough to keep on with this referencing further on and it would be better and more exact just to say that they've blended and absorbed all and out came their own superb poignant dark-wave style. Adrian H and The Wounds have a sound that is sinfully soulful and reminiscent of a night in a darkroom full of hallucinations, secrets and song. Adrian's voice and lyrics cut like a straight edge. He evokes impassioned stories of tragic love, lost faith and twisted taboos.

Solo-X

Solo-X

Solo-X is an avant-gadre industrial/electronic force that blurs the line between art, music, poetry, destruction & transformation. Solo-X is the brainchild of the poet solo, beginning in the bowels of the seedy underbelly of New Orleans in 2011 to finding it's home in the grime filled streets of Los angeles in 2016. With the release of their groundbreaking, epic first studio album 'Twitch' in June of 2020, since then having been played all over the world. Combined with the intensity, artistry & ferocity
of the live shows, it has catapulted Solo-X into the explosive, in your face force that it is today.
