North Texas techno fans probably know the Cross Border Warriors and their prime place in the area’s underground electronic music scene. That scene has had a bit of a hole recently as Cross Border Warriors has been on a brief hiatus. But it was all worth it, because the reason they were on a hiatus was to prepare their next act, the Techno Bunker.

Breathe a sigh of relief because the wait, while worth it, is soon to be over. The grand opening of the Techno Bunker happens December 1st. This Saturday! And it continues throughout the month as part of their Midnight Rites series of parties.

As we traverse the holiday season, some of the biggest parties of the year are in order, so the introductory lineup for the month is full of great artists and great times. It all kicks off with Secondcity, the British-American techno maestro.

Oh, you might also be wondering where the Techno Bunker actually is. It’s still a secret. So you’ve got to sign up and I’m sure they’ll tell you before the show. (Hint: It’s in the Design District.)
