Andi Harriman is a DJ, writer and scholar living in New York City. As the founder of the dark synth and industrial party, SYNTHICIDE, she now holds her fourth year residency at the notorious venue Bossa Nova Civic Club. She curates a melange of artists and music that cross the genres of industrial, EBM, goth and techno - anything aggressive, dismal and danceable. Having DJed everywhere from Los Angeles' Das Bunker party to Wave Gotik Treffen in Leipzig, Germany, Andi's aesthetic combines her underground 80s obsession with hints of industrial, new beat, dark techno and noise music. Her book Some Wear Leather, Some Wear Lace: The Worldwide Compendium of Post-Punk and Goth in the 1980s has given her international recognition as she lectures and writes about all things dark and gloomy.
