Firstly we finished our second pressing of T-Shirts, with a more detailed Steampunk design. Have a look and find your size over at We also have a different illustrated design that should be issued next month.

I’ve also uploaded HUNDREDS of new pictures to our site in the GIGS section.

If you want quality events, Oscillation is where you should be looking. This isn’t just “scary music”. This is music of all walks for all walks, and for THIS COMMUNITY. Your support would be much appreciated.

Pricing of tickets will be as follows: (Subject to change)

$25 all access pass – gets you into all events at the Agency and The Cell, including workshops and DJ events. These passes will be available over the web and at the cell and the agency.

$15 per night at the Cell Theatre (bands)

$5 Per night @ The Agency (DJs/etc.)

$5 Workshops on sat. oct. 11 (beginning @ Noon)

So, do the math; If you were to buy each night’s tickets, plus one night of DJs at the Agency, plus the workshop, you’d spend $40. A $25 pre-registration ticket is QUITE a good deal, in that case.

So, stay tuned! This is going to be the biggest OSCILLATION yet.
