San Francisco, CA, The Independent, 03/09/2013


While the rest of the country was battling record-breaking low temperatures and snowstorms, San Francisco was blessed with a temperate night, perfect for talking a walk to The Independent for a sold out performance by legends of the industrial scene. [..]

Held in association with ReGen Magazine, ReGeneration debuted at Club Orpheus in Baltimore, MD, one of the town’s longest running nightclubs, which has over the years held a number of scene-related nights and events.

At the end of every year, there are numerous lists that get published through various outlets detailing the best of whatever your category of choice; the best movie, the best dressed, the best restaurant, what have you. Perhaps it is part of humanity’s reflective nature to reminisce on the past year and quantify it down to a simple list that can quickly summarize what made living through it a worthwhile endeavor. Or perhaps it is indicative of the ever growing shallowness inherent to pop culture that quality is best summed up in simple ordered entries on some list. Who can say?
Certainly not ReGen Magazine, for we too have a list for you, the reader, of this publication’s Top 20 Albums of 2012. Voted on by the various members of the magazine staff, this list presents ReGen’s crème de la crème, showcasing those albums that best define the musical and creative outflow of the year from a wide variety of artists.

Washington, DC, 9:30 Club, 12/20/2012


On December 20, 2012, Washington, DC was laid to waste as one of the world’s most obscenely comedic and offensively cacophonous entities – GWAR – performed at the prestigious 9:30 Club. For nearly three decades, the world of music and theatre has been graced with the Richmond, Virginia band’s brand of hardcore/thrash metal, simultaneously shocking and enthralling audiences by presenting one of the most renowned stage shows yet conceived.

New York City/Brooklyn, NY, Europa, 12/07/2012


There comes a time in any artist’s career when the genre he or she helped to create evolves or mutates to such a degree that a scene is spawned, having little if anything to do with the mentality that set it into motion; by this point, said artist will usually eschew any notions of adhering to the scene, favoring the purely artistic route of simply following his or her own original path. Such can be said of Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, the enigmatic philosopher/poet/performance artist whose voice and words have become the stuff of legend with such proto-industrial luminaries as Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV. With a bevy of like-minded musical miscreants in the latter entity, P-Orridge has managed to defy not only established categories, but managed to establish a few new ones… only to defy those and settle into the oh-so-dreaded niche of the highly respected yet painfully misunderstood genius, appreciated because of/in spite of the idiosyncrasy.

Houston, TX, Reliant Arena, 10/30/2012


The Twins of Evil Tour featuring Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie should have been called the “10 Years Too Late” tour. Reliant Arena in Houston, Texas played host to the widely anticipated tour and that particular October 30 show was the fastest sell out of all the Twins of Evil stops. Hype and anticipation aside, the show didn’t deliver.
