Shock, camp, trash, titillation, prurience…No one does all this quite like Mr. Prurient himself, Dominick Fernow. For over 20 years now, Fernow’s Hospital Productions has been THE go-to label for extreme noise performance and to prove the point, it will host a full day and night of live convulsive beauty in Queens in December.

Hospital Productions and Quo Vadis will present Hospital Fest 2018 at Knockdown Center in Queens, NY on December 8. Perhaps inspired by its 20th anniversary show last year, H-Pro will once again highlight the very best in grind, harsh techno, and brutal noise experiments with two shows on the day at noon and 11:00 p.m. EST (tickets to the early show include entry into the late show).

During the noon show, Fernow will be playing with Texan thrash kings Power Trip, Justin Broadrick (Godflesh) will be on hand to lend his talented hands to a couple of sets (one with his Jesu project, one as Final), and live shows are expected from savage electronic producer and L.I.E.S. leader Ron Morelli and the wonderful piano preparer/composer Kelly Moran, among others. The late show features top techno miscreant Silent Servant and brilliant budding it-DJ Becka Diamond.

More acts are TBA, but check out the line-up so far below. Enjoy a few clips from this year’s artists while you’re down there — and of course, support the underground and grab your tickets here.
