I still can't believe TEAR IT UP is playing on Friday. Not to be all nostalgic, but the former band Dead Nation then the Later Tear It Up played a giant roll in me getting into DIY hardcore punk. Totally different band but most of the same people. Regardless pretty stoked about Friday. It will be great to see all the faces I haven't seen in a while. Oh yeah and Last In Line is getting back together for a few shows.

There are till some tickets left for the show on Friday at Europa in Brooklyn. I believe that there may be some walk up tickets for the show on Saturday in NJ, but no more then 10 of them, if you want to see TEAR IT UP buy a ticket here for the show on Friday, because I doubt anyone else is getting into the show in NJ

So Friday TEAR IT UP will be playing with their original line up (nothing to nothing) Paul, Andy, Doug, Matt & Dave. I haven't personally seen Doug in like 4 years so this should be fun. Dave from Six Feet Under records is re-releasing the Nothing To Nothing LP you can pre order it here or just pick it up at the gig. This was originally released by Jon at Dead Alive Records. Also playing will be the great Western Massholes that are LAST IN LINE. Around the same time TIU was playing LAST IN LINE was ripping up Western Massachusetts. Killer hardcore punk, followed by a bunch of crazy weirdos from MASS. This band played many great shows with TEAR IT UP years back (CBGB's w/ THE CASUALTIES, BRICK VFW w/ VOORHEES & COPS AND ROBBERS, and of course the 97A gig w/ SHARK ATTACK). I figured it would be cool to have them play together one more time. Opening the show is a new band from Darick and Mike from DEEP SLEEP called CELL MATES, Really catch hardcore punk. The 7" they put out on Wallride Records is killer.
