here's the second hot one this month, and this one is motherfucking scorching!!! Can't wait!!! Top recommendation!!!!!
Friendly Noise and Violence Vol. 83
August 26 - Merda (Brazil), Lotus Fucker, Putrida (NY), Sad Boys (NY), WarGames at Barclay House in Baltimore:
FUCK, so thrilled to have this band playing Baltimore!!!!
Merda is perhaps best known as the brother-band of the legendary Mukeka di Rato, but they certainly don’t live in that shadow. Quite popular in Brazil in their own right, and having already toured Europe, it’s a great pleasure to bring them here to America. These guys have been belting out fast hardcore with hints of melody and the occasional samba part for over ten years now, including some releases on Sound Pollution Records.
It’s damn near impossible for Brazilian bands to get into America (actually this is the first Brazilian punk band to hit the states since the 90's I think?) so we’re really pleased we were able to pull this off, and we hope this opens the floodgates for more Brazilian bands to come.
ahhhh trying to think of an equivalency here, to explain what a big deal this is. I mean, this band is on MTV, Vice Magazine, plays BIG clubs, etc, is super popular, but still plays fast hardcore with DIY bands, does splits with bands like Hellnation, etc......
Anyway, I am organizing their east coast tour and releasing their new LP, so I booked them the best show possible! =)
new NYC band, from the same scene that brought you Perdition, Dawn of Humans, crazy spirit, etc. This time around, it's some folks from Long Pigs and Perdition, an ex-DC resident, and some other folks I don't know too well playing straight-forward hardcore punk with a slightly raw south american feeling.
Sad Boys (NY)
new NYC hype, from the same scene that brought you Perdition, Dawn of Humans, crazy spirit, etc. This time around, it's some folks from Long Pigs and some other folks I don't know too well playing straight-forward pogo-inducing punk rock.
Lotus Fucker and WarGames will play too! WarGames is basically the best Baltimore band right now, in my opinion, so I couldn't think of a better gig to attend!!
This all goes down sunday, August 26, at Barlcay House, 8:30 PM, for $8. Fucking ill!!!!!! Don't miss it!!! show of the summer!!!!! so good that I made full-color flyers, find one in person and cherish it!!!!!
