Notorious New England Punk, Goth, and Metal Festival Finds Home in Bi-Locational Venues

New England Punk, Goth, and Metal Festival organizers Anderson Mar (Dark Sky Productions , suburban Boston, MA) and Matthew Marchesi (Spaz-Tik Ltd. of Lowell, MA) are pleased to announce that Club 125 in Haverhill/Bradford and The Palladium in Worcester are the designated venues for the most genre-diverse concert event of 2005.

After experiencing fierce opposition from the City of Lowell’s governing body, the NEPGM Festival was forced to relocate from its previously-contracted site of Lowell’s LaLecheur Park on inconveniently short notice. Promoters Mar and Marchesi resolved to ensure continuance of their vision for unification of the New England underground regardless of political obstacles, embracing the true spirit of punk rock ethos.

The weekend-long all-ages extravaganza featuring goth-rock legends Bella Morte, trashy punk rock’n roll icons Trashlight Vision (featuring Acey Slade of DOPE/The Murderdolls fame),Sardonica and former Misfit drummer Dr. Chud's X-Ward, in conjuction with 43 Northeast-based independent bands, will pack the Club 125 on Saturday, October 1st, then take the show on the road to The Palladium the following day. Tickets are $20 in advance (valid for both days/venues) if purchased in advance from the bands; $25 day of show.

The New England Punk, Goth, and Metal Festival takes place at Club 125, 725 S Main St Haverhill, Massachusetts on Saturday, October 1st, and The Palladium, 261 Main St. in Worcester on Sunday, October 2nd. Shows run all day and evening.

A Message to the Anti-war Demonstrators
22 Sep 2005
Guantanamo. . . “shock and awe”. . . “collateral damage”. . . Fallujah. . . Abu Ghraib. Behind the words stand the cities reduced to rubble, the bodies in the streets, the hooded prisoners, the kicked-down doors, and the children—crying in terror or silently watching the humiliation of their parents. All justified by outrageous lies.

The horror grinds on, every day.

Iraq cannot wait.

Iraq cannot wait for “pendulum swings.” Iraq cannot wait for possible resolutions to set “reasonable” deadlines for hypothetical timetables. Iraq cannot wait for the 2006 U.S. elections—especially (but not only) when the major Democrats all oppose withdrawal from Iraq, and some even support more troops being sent.

Nor will Bush be swayed simply by public opinion turning against him, or the war. Bush himself seems to believe he’s on a “mission from God” and the pack of neo-conservatives, Christian fascists and kluckers who surround him have demonstrated their intent to hold on to power. What do the 2000 elections tell us, after all, if not that?

Iraq—and the world—cannot wait. We cannot tolerate three more years of slaughter and lies and madness.
