Haven is a weekly independent gothic/industrial/dark alternative dance event held at Diva's Nightclub in Northampton, Massachusetts. Resident DJs Penelope, addam, and DevNull share time on the decks with invited feature guest dj's from Boston, NYC, and Philadelphia, as well as up and coming djs from within the community.
Some recent guest dj features have included DJ Owen Tate, DJ Znuh, DJ Arcanus, Daniel Myer (Haujobb), Ian Fford (NYC), Hellraver (NYC), Martin Atkins (Pigface, etc), DJ Coppertop (Indy), and Boston DJs Mothra, Gryffin, Lost Boy, and Lady Bathory, to name a few...
Haven is also known for it's parties. Once or twice a month theme nights draw out the best and worst in all of us, with costume contests, games, prizes, surprises, and 'unmentionable brouhaha'. Some of our favorite parties are the Drag Ball, the Industrial Pajama Party, the Masquerade Ball, Decadence: an Evening of the Arts, The Exotic Erotic Ball, and the Back to School party ... not to mention our famous (or shall we say infamous) Halloween celebrations!
Occasionally we have the opportunity to present a live music show at Haven. We import top quality sound support and host some of the brightest and best acts the subculture has to offer. These include international chart topping alternative acts like the Cruxshadows, Rasputina, Bella Morte, Razed In Black, Voltaire, Sister Machine Gun, Ego Likeness, Thou Shalt Not, and Imperative Reaction. Haven has also featured performances by New England based future superstar acts like You Shriek (Boston), Battery Cage (now on Metropolis Records), One Of Us (Boston), Incus (Boston), Fluttr Effect, and Collapse Into Reason.
We encourage local and international artists and craftpersons and offer opportunities to exhibit and vend at Haven. Independent musicians are also encouraged to contact us with their cd releases (remember, quality counts - we can't play bad masters over the system!). The Haven DJs maintain an easy balance between the familiar classics and the cutting edge, sometimes breaking music years ahead of the pack.
