Get out there and support your local Industrial scene, even if it is rife with Gothic drama!
Make sure to also mention on your local industrial mailing list how you have been making Industrial music since 1994 (same year that Downward Spiral came out, but no.. that is just a coincidence) and performed at Der Badeszimmer in Germany, which closed in 1998. Tons of rad ass industrial bands got their start at this underground club, including KOMPRESSOR@ KOMPRESSORMUSIC is powerful with word might and electronic, no guitar.
Once at the club, make sure to have your long black trench coat, round mirrored sunglasses and big black cowboy hat on. Show how Old Skool industrial you are by looking like Al Jourgenson! Lurk in the corners, or if you have the balls, go try to dance. Oggle the Goth chicks but don’t even try to hit on them. You are too much man for those wussy Goths (and every Rivet girl knows that she is ALSO too much man for those pesky Goths). Just stare at their cleavage.
And of course, if you are in the U.S., you must make the journey to Los Angeles to visit the country’s biggest and best Industrial/Noiz club Das Bunker. W3rd.
Post a comment about your local industrial club. Is it cool or does it suck?
