Fort Thunder & Lightning Bolt: Old Mill / New Music

Fort Thunder exhibit at Brown University's Orwig Music Library

Legendary artists’ space Fort Thunder was shut down eighteen years ago, meaning that the incoming class of Brown first-years were, uh… young, let’s say, at the time. The school’s music library has a small, perhaps overly scrappy lobby exhibit featuring a couple of cases of art and music memorabilia from the space that begat Lightning Bolt and Forcefield, among others. More interesting is a visually unremarkable binder of printed out newspaper articles looking back at the real estate shenanigans—I hadn’t seen the name Feldco in years—leading to the venue’s closure, in what was the first of many 21stcentury attempts to make Olneyville palatable to developers.
