websites just give you the promoters hype. Promoters will tell you
that their duran duran/goth night is the most Industrial night in
the world. Here I try to give you actual reviews from someone who
doesn't work at any of these clubs, someone with an Industrial point
of view. Granted opinions are like a**holes, everybody's got one...

Clubs to go to in NY when there isn't a show going on.
I G I T A L M U R D E R - Is closed.
2. Contempt! (next
event August 16th). This is the best night in NYC. What's different
about this night is that it's BYOCD, and they play tons of requests.
There's also no list for this club, which means they're no politiking,
which is quite a relief and keeps a lot of idiots out. Even the
promoters pay to go to this club, it's run by the scene for the
scene. Now THAT'S something. This club plays
the best Industrial music in NY. 10:30 PM to 4:00 AM $5
ē $7 w/o 21 and over, sorry :(
This isn't very industrial, it's gotta lot of ravers, but it's

is an excerpt from a review by Jonathan Fritz:
The music (albion)
As I stand amidst the darkness and cold gusts of air I realize that
Albion is the same old tired crap as it was at the Bank. Ian fford
likes to play the same stuff over and over again, so I guess he
likes it as well as other people. Come on. The REPEAT OFFENDER.
For at least the past year everytime I went to Albion I don't think
there was a time when I didn't hear the same covenant song, apoptygma
bezerk, mesh, kmfdm, Rammstein, depech mode, new order, cubanate,
etc. etc. etc. same same same. It is enough to make me the "bitter
The sound is good not too loud, not too soft, just right.

4 . Detour opens and closes
a lot. I have no info. Check their website, email someone there
and make sure before you go. Detour is primarily a synth pop night,
but they have on for a little while an Industrial DJ named Tommy
Teknik, who is top notch.
you live on Long Island, you better get a car.
Sundays w/dj wilhelm k and guests @ the

pay to get into.
