PIG Lards over Asylum 13’s Five Year Anniversary

September 9, 2016 @ 8:00 PM - 1:00 AM

PIG 5 year anniversary asylum 13

We at Asylum 13 have given you five years of our lives, and you’ve given us the five best ones in return!
That’s right, you awesome motherfuckers, Asylum 13 has been a force for MADNESS in dark alternative entertainment for 5 years this September!

We’ve brought out tons of bands, incredible and unique performers, and created an environment where people can feel free to express themselves while enjoying awesome music, and you have rewarded us with incredible support and becoming a community full of love and acceptance.

To celebrate FIVE YEARS of Asylum 13, the mighty LORD OF LARD, Raymond-Motherfucking-Watts himself, finally brings his bastard breed of industrial rock-fueled swine songs to Wilmington, Delaware!

That’s right… <PÎG> performs their first ever show in Delaware on Friday September 9th, 2016! This marks the first time there has been this much pork this close to Philadelphia in 20 years (Baconfest aside… those food truck vendors appreciate the GOSPEL of the Lard).

This momentus occassion also heralds the release of <PÎG>’s new album, “THE GOSPEL,” releasing the same date on Metropolis Records.

Watts will preach the word of the Lard alongside exhaulted prophets of pork and former KMFDM members Günter Schulz and En Esch, reuniting 3/4 of the powerhouse that dominated Industrial Rock throughout much of the 80’s and 90’s. In a time of such political angst as we see now, we could use some of the brutal musical disobediance unleashed by that trio.

During this unholy mass, En Esch will take over the pulpit with a sermon of sin that includes his independent teachings as well as excertps from the gospel of Slick Idiot, the band formed when he and Schulz were blessed with a shared vision of the Lard.

The Lord of Lard also welcomes some newer converts to preach the pork: Z Marr has seen the error of his deceitful ways and no longer plays the organs in the Church of the Combichrist, now bashing his keys for the boar, whilst Galen Waling of Left Spine Down also stomps his hooves for the right side, the ribs, and the entire roast.

Another acolyte of swine, Peter Turns Pirate, will entertain the faithful with an eclectic blend of dark electronic rhythms and theatrics that will have you Praising the Lard!


Holy shit! We have PIG, En Esch, Slick Idiot, 3/4 of the classic (now-former) KMFDM lineup, alongside ex-Combichrist alumni, and one of the best drummers in the scene (no, not the Combichrist guy – though both that one and Waling might have had some experience with the acronym LSD).

Fuck, this is going to be a great night.

Oh, and we’ve got Rodney Anonymous from The Dead Milkmen, alongside other regular and special guest DJs, joining us to spread some madness, with much, much more in store for you!
