Dutch goths Clan of Xymox danced their way through a brief US tour that included two sold-out stops in New York City. The quartet — consisting of founder Ronny Moorings along with Mojca Zugna, Mario Usai, and Sean Göbel — closed their tour at Saint Vitus Bar in Brooklyn on March 26, and Paivi was there to shoot the show!
The show was awesome and super intimate! There was no photo pit, but goths are very respectful of personal space, so Paivi was able to get some good shots. Saint Vitus is a very cool nondescript metal/punk bar with zero signage! The owner is friendly and mingles with the crowd. It reminds us of DC’s own DC9.
Although perhaps still best known for their debut album, 1985’s self-titled record, Clan of Xymos has been quite busy recently, releasing Days of Black via Trisol/Metropolis Records in 2017. In their 18-song set, they performed four numbers from the first album and three from the latest, while also paying respect to 2009’s In Love We Trust.
