Difficult Music Night

In addition to sponsoring a bunch of notable national shows (Psychic TV, Test Department, Einsturzende Neubauten), Antidote would sponsor periodic "Difficult Music Nights" at Club 950 and Neo. The theme was crazy noise music that folks could not dance to. It turned off a lot of folks, but that was more than likely the point.
