Last year found Ferndale dark-wave outfit Siamese dropping their debut record, Host, which sounds like what would happen if '80s new wavers Berlin went on a date with Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs to Movement. Led by vocalist Johanna Champagne, Siamese’s calling card is urgency and the prospect of a looming, unseeable fear, but with fuzzy, dance-ready postpunk energy. (Check out their cover of “Dream a Little Dream of Me,” which gets a seductive Deborah Harry treatment.) Siamese will join sinister West Coast goth wave duo Silence in the Snow.

Doors open at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 5, at the Sanctuary; 2932 Caniff St., Hamtramck; 313-462-4117; $10.
