Did you know Ami and Adrienne have moved into Barclay now?? This is great news because they are the coolest out and are ready to help make Baltimore a better scene than ever. They're going to be working with me on all Friendly Noise and Violence gigs. In fact, this gig series is now the 3 of us! Considering I am now on tour for months at a time, she could be a better resource for gigs than I am. But please feel free to talk to any of us about whatever gig shit you need.

I've been on tour for over a month now, with Merda (Brazil) and Inservibles (Mexico), but you know I'm always thinking of you, and even though I'm going to be in Europe with Lotus Fucker for this gig, we still had to make it happen for you guys!

Friendly Noise and Violence Vol. 88
October 21 - Criaturas (TX), Cigarette Crossfire (Finland), station, +1 at Barclay House in Baltimore

Criaturas (TX)
Great spanish-styled hardcore punk from Austin TX, from the same crew that brought you Vaaska and Deskonocidos. This crew has a pretty flawless track record these days and this band is no exception. They fuckin rip!!

Also playing are local yokals station, and one more I'm waiting on for a response.

Lotus Fucker Euro tour kickoff with D-Clone (Japan) + Mutilation Rites (NYC)

Hello world,

Friendly Noise and Violence Vol. 87
October 10 - D-Clone (Japan), Zatsuon (NY), Lotus Fucker, Mutilation Rites (NY), Triac at Barclay House in Baltimore

 At the moment, this is the #1 most crucial show of the fall. I have an even hotter one in the works in November, but.....I don't know quite how hot it's going to be yet, so I won't spill the beans. For the moment, concern yourself with this noise/metal monster mashup.

D-Clone (Japan)
#1 hyped noiser cruster band of our times. #1 top dog band of the new generation of Japanese crusties. They've been making punk happen in Japan on a high level, helping bands from all over the world tour their country, and thus they deserve the world in return. Regardless of how you may or may not feel about them, it'll be worth the effort just to check it out. Total insane d-beat noise violence insanity. Bring earplugs and body armor.

Zatsuon (NYC)
Members of Nervskade, Perdition, Nomad, etc etc. All your favorite NYC noise punk guys in one killer crasher crust band. Total noise insanity, total friendly and violence.

Lotus Fucker
goes to Greece the day after this. Wish us luck!!!!!

Mutilation Rites (NYC)
Metal guys rejoice. I don't like metal so I don't know what to say about this one. But I'm sure plenty of people out there are stoked!!!!!

local workhorse grind band, featuring the best drummer in the DC/Baltimore area. You know them, you love them, new 3-piece line-up to prove that they will never ever end, grind forever.

This gig is at Barclay House and will cost $8!!!!! For three touring bands, including one from literally the other side of the planet earth!!! You know you want to see other Japanese bands in the future so let's make sure these guys have a good time and are treated nicely, so they tell all their friends how lovely Baltimore is and then everybody will come spend some loud nights here!!!

Inservibles (Mexico) + Bible Thumper (NJ) + Lotus Fucker in Baltimore

 Hello world,

Okay, I know I have disappointed this month with some shits falling through while I've been on tour and unable to deal with other people's screw-ups.....can we please end this month on a positive note?? pretty please?
Friendly Noise and Violence Vol. 86
september 27 - Inservibles (Mexico), BibleThumper (NJ), the Imposters (CA), Lotus Fucker at Nu Haus of Cassanova in Baltimore

Inservibles (Mexico) = what DIY punk means to me. probably coolest, most relevant Mexican band of the past 10-20 years. Hyper negative/realistic attitude with a well-informed and loose sound that brings to mind Void, or Cheetah Chrome Motherfuckers, or garage, or Terveet Kadet with longer songs. Everybody always says "deranged", "weird", "disturbed", "menacing", yeah probably, it always helps to have something to be pissed about. But one should also note their keen abilities as songwriters, to write powerful and memorable hardcore songs that never stray inappropriately into rock or metal or speed. Just straight-forward mastery of all the things we love about 'hardcore punk'.

BibleThumper (NJ) = 3rd or 4th time through Baltimore now? You should know what to expect from this brutal d-beating 2-piece. ultra fast and tight drumming, a bass guitar you didn't know could sound that way, and a lot of grunting and screaming. great underrated rager.

The Imposters (CA) = surfing punk from CA. records out on local label Headcount.

Lotus Fucker = noise forever.

This gig is $8!!!!!! For three touring bands, one of which is from Mexico!!!!!!! If you like seeing punk bands from all over the country/world, you like paying the door!!! =)
scope it at Nu Haus of Cassanova, right down the street from Barclay House, around 8 PM!
