So our good pals IRON AGE from Austin TX will be playing NYC and Brooklyn this weekend. I really can't say enough great things about "THE SLEEPING EYE" LP. The record is a monster, ripping heads off hardcore kids everywhere.
First Iron Age show will be tomorrow at the CAKE SHOP with some great bands. WAR HUNGRY & MOTHER OF MERCY from PA are both great Hardcore Bands. I wanted Mother of Mercy to play the last Iron Age show in Brooklyn, but those bills were full. My dudes in War Hungry will be out to play and hang out as well. Love these guys. Brooklyn NY's own THRILLER will be opening the show. If you can stay punk playing hardcore then you have done something right. These guys are a perfect example. Leather Jackets, Charged Hair & Raging Hardcore Punk. It is Michael Dolce's Birthday so buy him a drink.
Saturday night, HARDCORE GIG VOLUME and CHRONIC YOUTH are getting together to celebrate CY's 1 year anniversary. This IRON AGE gig is going down at the Charleston. Thanks to Cenk for hooking the place up as always. (Please tip your bartender) Pretty diverse bill since we booked the show together, but will be a Banger for shore. I'm Kinda biased but two of the best hardcore bands on the East Coast are playing this party. DUSTHEADS & BRAIN KILLER. Dustheads don't play very often (actually just when Iron Age is in town), nut when they can manage to get a parctice in (maybe) and get together to play it sure to be some sort of spectacle. Good times a comin. The HARD PUNK steam roller known as BRAIN KILLER will flatten all of you. This band is no slow all go live, not to be missed. Rounding out the bill will be DESCENDER from NYC, THE BANNER from NJ & Tee Pee Records own NAAM. THIS SHOW STARTS AT 8PM SHOW UP ON TIME OR YOU WILL MISS BANDS!!! Don't Forget about the Chronic Youth DJ's Sping records upstairs all night as well.
P.S. Don't forget to go see THE ASSASSINATORS playing at ABC No Rio
