Nexus 6 One-Year Anniversary :: Friday, September 19th @ Neo
In September 2007, we announced that Nexus 6 would be starting at a place that seemed curiously familiar to many of you… One year later, Kinetic’s monthly invasion of Neo is still going strong. Come out and party with us to celebrate the one-year anniversary! We’ll be bringing the 00ntz you know and love, as well as giving out more Kinetic compilation CDs in celebration. Thanks to everyone who has made it such a fun time!

Negative Gain v3 :: Saturday, September 27th @ Reggie’s
Volume 3 of the Negative Impact compilation is set for release, featuring a wide variety of industrial acts from around the country, specifically many from Chicago. For its all-ages(!) release party, a live lineup of Chicago industrial bands has been assembled, including [critical][system][error], who you may remember from their pounding performance opening for C/A/T and Unter Null. On top of that, throw Kinetic DJs Sprite and MisterEntropy, and you’ve got one hell of a night of live music showcasing Chicago’s reemergence in the forefront of American industrial.
NOTE: As this is not an official Kinetic event, we cannot guarantee that the all-ages on the flyer is accurate. According to the website for the venue, it is not, so be ye forewarned, anyone under 21 may well be turned away at the door. Sorry, this isn’t something we have any control over.

DOOMED! :: Friday Sept 26th @ Jun Bar
Life got you down? Giant ants rampaging through the streets? Martians in the White House? 50-foot women using your train as nunchucks? When burdened with the harsh realities of super science gone horribly wrong and impending alien invasions, do what we do: Get a frosty beverage and dance your ass off.
Introducing DOOMED! The party at the end of the world will be at the super-posh Jun Bar in scenic Wicker Park. Your DJs Killjoy5k and Pathogen will provide the finest in electronic music to drown out the alien death rays in the background. The bar will serve you vodka and whiskey drink specials so you can meet the interstellar menace with a stern look and a wobbly stance. Helpful documentaries of past apocalyptic intergalactic menaces, such as This Island Earth and I Married A Monster From Outer Space (note: please do not marry monsters from outer space) will be on hand to guide you in your new life as Martian chow.
Oh, and in the event we wake up the next day we wake up and the Earth has been saved miraculously, we’ll do it all over again next month. It’s really only a matter of time until the Martians come for our women once more.
DOOMED! Friday, Sept 26th @ Jun Bar (2nd floor)

NOTICE: Two changes to the lineup have occurred. One, the Fishtank is on hiatus due to construction and reorganization at Spin. Two, due to events that are truly and uniquely Spot 6 style, the Kinetic noize night will no longer be held at that venue. A new (and substantially less sketchy) venue should be ready to go by the next Kinetic, though, so keep your eyes peeled.
Promoter Ordinance News: For those of you interested in keeping up-to-date on the fate of the notorious promoter ordinance that got shot down a few months ago, the Chicago Music Commission has a website documenting its status set up here. Keep informed about Chicago’s nightlife!
