On December 7th, Hospital Productions took over Market Hotel with their annual NYC Hospital Fest, and as always, the lineup was stacked with provocative, cutting-edge artists across metal, electronic music, noise and plenty in-between and beyond. Tomb Mold, Pain Jerk, Eternal Champion, Akitsa, Skin Crime, Moonbeam Terror and more brought the extremity to the early show, while Orphx, Ninos Du Brasil, Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement, DJ Becka Diamond and others offered up late-night sets. Photographer Nikki Sneakers was there to catch all the sex-doll-fish-slapping action — see some of her standout shots below.
