Hospital Productions announces 20th anniversary event in NYC, featuring Dedekind Cut, Nothing + Prurient, Godflesh & more (gee, I hope there’s cake…)

Imagine for a moment that it’s your favorite label’s birthday, and it’s the big two-oh. You’re happy, excited, and, although you may be loath to admit it, a little proud; but a thought lingers in the back of your mind: you may need to get a gift. What do you get the label that has everything? Well, don’t fret, friend, because the answer is simple: you just have to RELAX and let THEM throw YOU the bitchin’est, hardest partyin’, most unforgettable 20th birthday bash you and your friends could ever conceive.

I choose to believe that was the exact thought process that led your friendly neighborhood extreme music label Hospital Productions to put together their amazing 20th anniversary event in New York City this year. The all-day festival event will feature a smattering of your favorite artists and a handful of extra special performances and collabs, including Godflesh performing their 1989 debut Streetcleaner, a team-up between Nothing/Jesu (Justin Broadrick of Godflesh)/Prurient, and the first performance in over 10 years from elusive noise project Skin Crime. Other **NOTEWORTHY** artists on the bill include Dedekind Cut, Alberich + Lussuria, Ames Sanglantes, Becka Diamond, and…you know what? Just read the thing yourself.

“When and where does all this celebratory nonsense go down,” you ask? November 5. @ Warsaw. @ 2 PM sharp. RSVP soon — or really, just buy your tickets here — so they know how much you love them.

Also, if you’re one of those suckers who lives outside of NYC, but you still find yourself eager to ring in the next decade of Hospital Productions dominance, the label is prepping three more worldwide events to commemorate this historic milestone in Portugal, Georgia, and Germany. Live outside those countries? Sorry, but you’re fucked. Pop open a frosty Zima and listen to Cocaine Daughter in your basement by yourself, I guess.

Anyway, happy b-day, Hospital! Here’s to many more years to come! *clink*
