She Past Away formed in 2006, but its sound comes from a time way before that. The Turkish post-punk band nails the darkwave nostalgia vibe with Peter Murphy-style vocals and synth that’ll make you want to storm The Castle.
Check out the video to the band’s biggest hit “Kasvetli Kutlama” (meaning gloomy celebration); it could easily play on the big screen behind the dance floor. The band last played Crowbar in 2019, and this time it’s She Past Away’s only Florida show, which is fitting because Ybor City is where all the good goths roam.
She Past Away w/Twin Tribes/Obsidian/DJ Black/DJ Winters. Friday, Dec. 3, 7 p.m. $20-$25. Crowbar, Ybor City. crowbarybor.com
