The Black Castle

(93)

Los Angeles most notorious venue for the most extreme underground performances ever conceived on the planet. The Black Castle has become a center of the most obscure uncensored presentations serving the subcultures of various genres of human expression. With various forces public, economic, and private determined to shut down the venue over the years, the gears still turn everytime the doors open to those unafraid to set foot in its domain.

An exploiter without ethics

A man without rights

Under the U.S. Patriot Act

A domestic terrorist I am

Under Tits and Sh*t and ASS of T.S.A. and Homeland Security’s Corporate

“fear based” schizophrenia

Who commits the crime of or appears to

Intimidate or coerce the civilian population

Appears to Influence the policy of our government

I’M A TERRORIST

This I have been accused of

Without a trial or a lawyer on my side

This war on terrorism is their convenient criminalization

Capitalization incorporation of

A military complex in your home and garden

I love my country, f**k ya it’s entertaining

But the bankers and politicians that sold the American Dream killed my faith

I’M A TERRORIST

They made me patriotically obsolete

I’M A TERRORIST

I’M A TERRORIST

In the eyes of the law I am wrong for reminding you of the articles in the

constitution of these United States

Congress shall make no law prohibiting the freedom of speech or the right of

the people to assemble and to petition the Government for a redress of griev-

ances

I have grievances

I’M A TERRORIST

Article four

About no warrants without probable cause

Search and seizures for no reasons

Just because

I’ve been seized

I’M A TERRORIST

Article seven

Right to a trial

No longer a right under the

U.S. patriot Act

I’M A TERRORIST

Well I do like to f**k your daughters and I’m the man in black

I’M A TERRORIST

Article nine

The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed,

denied or disparaged - retained by the people

Wrong makes right

Under the U.S. Patriot Act

Constitution gone and the Bill of Rights

All abolished under the U.S. Patriot Act

The American way?

And dissidence for the smart and the brave?

I’M A TERRORIST

They came for the liberals

Without trials

You laughed and smiled

Anarchists gettin imprisoned

For protests at W.T.O.

Didn’t like their simple answers

No government to make you buy

Never asked why

Microsoft Tea baggers killin’ Senators and Peace freak pacifist Unite in Earth

First Stock Market Warren Buffet delight

When they come for you

Do you think I’ll care?

I’M A TERRORIST

I used to be patriotic for speaking my mind and questioning

The establishment with my art

Freedom from expression

They told you I was wrong

Now that freedom is gone

I’M A TERRORIST

I’m a counter revolutionary against the corporatist consumer

Revolution you call evolution

I’M A TERRORIST

When I go to protests you say I’m just into hippie nostalgia

I know you say Kent state never happened, ya right

Never a man on the moon

Never any American Holocaust

Whatever

IM A TERRORIST

And what of the FBI and the CIA’s secret wars on the people?

The assassinations of JFK, Bobbie and Luther King?

See I believe Roosevelt let Pearl Harbor happen

Bush- Obama-Pravda INC plagiarized the same technique

Good for business- The Good WAR

An extraordinary rendition

Bravo

I’M A TERRORIST

Because they changed the law to silence us REAL

UnNATO Americans

Like they did Abbey Hoffman and the Black Panthers and A.I.M

I didn’t make this label

common dominance, promote the oppressive warfare, and secure the bless-

ings of disparagy to ourselves and our insanity, do refrain and abolish this

Constitution of the global corporate take over of these United States of the

world

October 30th is the 6 year anniversary of the bc, and Im trying to put together a lineup for a date sometime in October or November for the celebration. Many ups and downs over the years and its been a wild ride. It started years ago with the idea of building a club dedicated to extreme underground metal, a total diy project. I took all my experience of club going to make something I like. I built an area for security to be out of the way from the crowd because I hated going to clubs and feeling babysitting eyes on me. I wanted the vibe to be more relaxed. I painted as much as I could black because I wanted the bands to be the main focus and not so much things around you, and metal in a big bright white room just doesn't make sense. Over the years Ive opened the doors to other genres of music and enjoyed having people from other walks of life enjoy the atmosphere. Its been really hard doing it alone and it wouldn't of been possible without the help of promoters like Chris Hatewar and my 2 best friends and my sister to cover for me while I ran the soundboard every night. I will turn this venue into a much more exclusive place by making some adjustments and continue turning the place into what I had in mind years ago. I thank everyone that has supported the venue and each others scene respectively.

effective immediately the front entrance is no longer open. All entry will now be through the rear of the building to allow faster processing of people and vendors will also be in the rear no longer inside. The vendors can no longer vend inside because of the bright lights that disturb the vibe of the bands playing.

The east coast gets 9/11. The west coast gets to die a slow death by radiation. How does everyone feel about this? Besides the misinformation feeding disinformation what are your opinions? Yes i know this has nothing to do with shows...
