SECCA is proud to present NIGHT MOODS, a new nocturnal concert series exploring the electronic and hypnotic at the historic Hanes House. The series will explore the intersection of electronic music, technology and digital art while juxtaposing the stately environment of the Hanes House with cutting edge sounds and visuals. The second show in the series features one-man electronic pop sensation Sengoko (formerly known as T0W3RS), with local darkwave shoegaze veteran Mauve Angeles (of Spirit System) opening the show. Tickets are $10 Advance / $13 day-of-show. Tickets on sale now!

Doors open at 6pm, with music starting at 7pm.

NIGHT MOODS is sponsored by STITCH Design Shop and Radar Brewing Company.

As a division of the North Carolina Department of Natural & Cultural Resources, SECCA requires proof of vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test for entry to events where social distancing is not possible.

For eight years, Derek Torres performed as the pop outfit T0W3RS. Worn out from industry grind and the political climate, he took a hiatus to become an activist and co-filmmaker with his wife Julianna Villarosa. He is back with his new project Sengoko. As a multi-racial kid raised by a single white mother, Derek has always struggled with his racial identity. For most of his life, he was told his Japanese surname was Sengoko, which turned out to be a mispronunciation of his real surname Sengoku. Like T0W3RS (Torres) before, Sengoko represents his conflict to find identity.

Recently intent on marrying his love of film and music, he set out to make a fictional film soundtrack. As a latchkey kid of the VHS age, the films of the eighties introduced him to pop and electronic music. What would it sound like if John Hughes and John Carpenter had collaborated?

Sengoko + The Saline Dreams is a teenage love story set in an eighties post apocalyptic vision. Youth in a world on the brink of collapse looking for hope. Listen to Sengoko on Spotify.


When not co-fronting Winston-Salem's longtime shoegaze act Spirit System with Laurie Ruroden or conjuring dark visions with their surrealist paintings, Eric Gilstrap hypnotizes audiences with enigmatic and synth-laden lofi tunes as Mauve Angeles. Listen to Mauve Angeles at Bandcamp.
