So, as Atmosphere says:|
"This is for everyone around the planet
That wishes they were from somewhere
Other than were they’re standing
Don’t take it for granted
Instead take a look around
Quit complaining and build something on that ground
Plant something on that ground
Dance and sleep on that ground
Get on your hands and knees and watch the ants walk around the ground
Make a family, make magic, make a mess
Take the stress, feel your motivation, and build your nest"
And we all know he's the wisest of all wise rappers. I've decided its time to give props to my hometown, and what's apparently the Noise capital of America: Providence, RI.
The first announcement, is that our goth/industrial night Resurrection has splintered into a few different themed nights. Now, the first Sunday of every month is Earthquake, a Force of Nature event featuring live music, guest DJs and lots of "offensively noisy crap."
In the past, we've booked the likes of Grendel, Pneumatic Detach, Terretron and FGFC820, with guest DJs Brad Rhodes, Shivar and Mothra.
Our next event is Monolith live, with DJ Adam X, on December 4th at club hell.
DJ Peter Lee and myself are the resident DJs, and spin a mix of hard electronic, powernoise, EBM and electro-industrial, with a sampling of gabber, experimental, technoid, noise and ambient every so often.

Providence is also a the centralized industrial music spot for New England and New York. (Hartford would be geographically, but Hartford has the worst industrial scene ever, and you can quote me on that.) Bands like Scrape[DX], Pneumatic Detach, Chainsaws.and.Children, Terretron, GASR, Battery Cage and American Electronics Corp., Grenadier, Freezepop (meh), Karlheinz, Nau-Zee-auN and Zero Times Infinity, C2 and Control.org, Prurient, and even NYC acts like Terrorfakt and Cervello Eletronico are all living, working and performing somewhere nearby.
Providence is also the home to Force of Nature Productions, which has booked and promoted hundreds of industrial and experimental acts at local venues. In the summer of 2006 will be the fifth incarnation of the Providence Industrial Festival. An even which now runs for three days, and hosts more than 30 live artists and a dozen DJs. Last year, fans saw Mimetic, This Morn' Omina, Synth-Etik, Detritus, Andraculoid, Liar's Rosebush, Concrete Cookie and The [law-rah] Collective to name a few.
Recent bookings have included Doormouse, CDatakill and Edgy, and last night's E-Craft concert. Which was amazing.

Also, the Kaos Corporation, a New England based website for industrial music and culture, including DJing, urban exploration, music production, street art and politics is still in the works.
