Verboden presents an epic evening of Post-Punk and Darkwave at Fortune Sound Club.


As an active paramedic, firefighter, and veteran of the war in Afghanistan, Vision Video lead Dusty Gannon has seen more horror in real life than in the classic movies he draws inspiration from. When not saving lives on the front-line, Dusty dons torn fishnets, combat boots and makeup to play post-punk that recalls the genre’s heyday when the lines between goth and pop blurred to create some of the underground’s most beloved acts such as The Cure, The Smiths and Joy Division. But hidden within Vision Video’s catchy hooks and dancy beats is a nostalgic yet desperate message exploring the darker undertones of our existence. At its core, Inked In Red looks inward to understand the effects of war and the global pandemic. Dusty’s experiences in service have imparted an authentic gravitas to the music, revealing a cautionary tale of unhinged mental illness born of trauma. Sonically, this is reflected in every chord and melody through its enticingly gothic yet often upbeat nature. Vision Video’s debut imparts a duality of mania that, simply stated, is real malaise and existential dread that cannot be made facsimile.

With Guests:

Urban Heat (Austin TX)

Urban Heat are a 3-piece American post-punk band from Austin, TX. They fuse dark 80's stylings with modern flourishes, Horstmann's throaty baritone delivering musings on existence and romanticism against an unrelenting industrial gothic pulse.

Creux Lies (Sacramento)


Ringfinger (Vancouver)

Synthetic ballads from beyond. Worship alone.
