When: 20th September, Thurs Where: DXO (Alternation)
Price: $35 (includes 2 drinks)
Ticketing through (


Alec Empire, probably the most controversial electronic artist in the world, is famed for being the founding member of activist / hardcore-techno outfit ATARI TEENAGE RIOT, founder of Digital Hardcore Records and his utterly insane stage antics, the experimental German artist will showcase the best of his breakcore and acid reportoire in a three hour set at DXO.

Alec is further distinguished by over a hundred releases and working with top alternative artists such as Nine Inch Nails, Rammstein and Rage against the Machine just to name a few. Both hardcore (literally and figuratively) fans can expect to be blown away by the majesty of his riot-inducing stage presence and the naked power of his aural mayhem.

This event has special significance for the art / experimental scene in Singapore as Alec represents the pinnacle of their pantheon of role models (preceding other icons such as Aphex Twin and Merzbow) and opens the gateway for more exotic cultural performances in Singapore.

Opening acts:

Vortex (Exitmusik / Spectrum)
DJ MENTOR (a.k.a Xho)
Saito Nagasaki

Age Policy: 18+, but we DIDNT say you cant try

Alternative music is back with a vengence, brought to you by the same team of madcaps that created Heart of Darkness! This time, its in a bigger venue (for those of you who complained about the old GH system, now no more excuse!) and with a fresh lineup! The music policy has been tweaked to have some more female/radio friendly elements as much as an "educational" serving of the best underground acts locally - encompassing the full spectrum from punk/hardcore/metal/emo/goth/industrial alongside familiar indie names. We are not out to recreate a fatfrog/timbre/homeclub or whatnot, this is aimed at being the Default alternative music showcase.

The purpose of Alternation is similar to HOD: to educate the public in the more niche music, promote local subcultures and establish a platform for local alternative musicians. The global scene is moving in a gothic direction, yet branching off in different ways to intersect metal and punk elements. The whole idea is to bring that kind of vibrancy to Singapore without compromising its aesthetical and ideological background. Without saying, we will still be waving the Singapore Dark Alternative Movement (SDAM flag) for this.

PLEASE support this platform because with consistency we could be looking at better funded and more interesting shows!

Bands interested to be part of this series of gigs can email to for more details. Please refrain from sending mp3s through the email, link us to an address where we can hear your works (such as myspace) instead.

They were pitted against Allura, Now Open, RetroGroove and Ridge in the Finals held on the 26th of July.

Upon winning their title, drummer Pio declared that despite the win, the band remains the same: just some guys looking to enjoy performing onstage and pleasing the crowd.

With the victory, Ivys Vendetta have won for themselves $50,000 in cash and prizes, and also the honour of flying the national colours of Singapore at the World Battle of the Bands 2007.
