Nephilim Halls Productions is proud to present the 2nd Annual International EBM Day celebration in Hawaii! This night features straight-up old-school industrial music from the pioneer bands like Front 242, Einstürzende Neubauten, Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle, Skinny Puppy, Laibach, Klinik, SPK and more, who helped shape the beginnings of the genre.
The term “industrial music” was coined in the mid-1970s with the founding of Industrial Records by Genesis P-Orridge of Throbbing Gristle and Monte Cazazza; on Throbbing Gristle’s debut album, The Second Annual Report, they coined the slogan “industrial music for industrial people”.
AllMusic defines industrial as the “most abrasive and aggressive fusion of rock and electronic music;” “initially a blend of avant-garde electronics experiments (tape music, musique concrète, white noise, synthesizers, sequencers, etc.) and punk provocation.”
On this special night, we acknowledge our roots with essential classic industrial sets by three of Honolulu’s veteran dark DJs:
DJ Sniper Wells
DJ Du Nord (Craig Willers)
When: Friday, February 24 from 9 p.m.-2 a.m.
Where: NextDoor, 43 N. Hotel Street @ the loft upstairs
Cost: $5 at the door
21+ are welcome.
With music giveaways from industrial music label Skyqode, a fast-growing label established in 2012 to promote new artists in the Synthpop, Electronic Dance, and Industrial genres.
