holy shiiiiiit

In my opinion (and I could be biased), there are 3 BIG shows this summer that are essential viewing for anyone with an interest in the current crop of hardcore. One already happened (Germ Attak + Lost Tribe), number 2 is coming up in just two weeks......and number 3 is happening next month, more on that later.

Friendly Noise and Violence Vol. 49
June 14 - See You in Hell (Czech Republic), Origin of M (Japan), xBrainiax (MI), Lotus Fucker, Mind as Prison at Barclay House in Baltimore

.....well, that was the plan anyway, and it looked so good.....but now Mind as Prison sadly broke up and it looks like LF won't be able to play......so maybe Chaos Destroy and/or Sacrifidelis are gonna play?

See You in Hell:

Over the past 10 years, See You in Hell has been the primary punk export of the Czech Republic. I mean that literally; they’ve toured damn near the entire planet multiple times in the past few years, including two Japan tours, two Brazil tours, and all over Europe way more than two times. They’ve been dropping records left and right, and each one has been better than the last, mastering their own unique blend of Czech and Japanese crust and hardcore. So now that they’re all warmed up, we all decided it was time for them to hit the USA.

Origin of M:
Hardman's Japanese hardcore. Forget the mediocre records, I saw this band in Tokyo in summer 2009 and they were hard and intense in all the ways you want Japanese hardcore to be. Fuckin ill. If you liked Slang last summer, you'll love this too. Just make sure not to get in Guy's way. PS: ex-Gudon, how fuckin cool is that??????

Now that's what I call fast hardcore!!! America's premiere power violence unit. Equal parts Star Wars and No Comment, this band is literally mindblowing live. Like, your brain will explode trying to keep up with how hectic the arrangements are, everything's so scattered yet they manage to be so tight. My eyes can't keep up with them.

Chaos Destroy.......well, it's rare Baltimore can claim to have the best of anything.....but we do have the #1 best American noise punk band, and it's time we start respecting that.

Sacrifidelis.......hometown heroes.

This all goes down Tuesday, June 14, Barclay House, 8 PM, $8 (3 touring bands including 2 from literally the other side of the planet.....it's a fair price, come prepared to pay it please). If you go to 1 and only 1 punk show this summer, honestly, I'd go to this, Japan + Czech Republic + US finest, an international hardcore sampler.......don't miss it!!
