"Was soooo brutal. And just awesome. It reminded me why I love going to shows. Which is a good thing. Cause I always start to forget. Hopefully the footage of this amazing show surfaces quickly. *Ahem* *Cough*. Pardon, me." [anthony l rivera]
Before I utter a single word, I want to thank every person that came out to Cake Shop on 10/2 and 1000 Knives for making the BrooklynVegan sponsored Burnt By The Sun/Tombs/Black Anvil/Bloodhorse/Torchbearer show such a success. Much like the killer Rorschach performance at The Charleston a week earlier, the packed-solid basement at the venue was 1000 degrees and brimming with energy. I can't think of a better way to send off such an amazing band than with so much love (anger?).

Burnt By The Sun are currently heading out to Europe for a (possibly final?) string of dates. If you missed it, we interviewed Dave Witte before the NYC show.

Tombs, who were tighter than ever on 10/2, are heading to Europe in November with Buried Inside. Following that tour, Tombs will headline The Studio @ Webster Hall with Rosetta on 12/12. Tickets are here.

Black Anvil are scheduled to play Gramercy on 12/16 with a killer lineup of Marduk, Nachtmystium, Merrimack, and Mantic Ritual. Tickets are on sale. Gramercy is a KILLER bill, but thats not the only unmissable NYC date that they have in the calendar... details to come, but save the date... 10/23.

Torchbearer have one additional date on their calendar, at Rock N Roll High School in New Brunswick on 10/15 featuring a killer lineup of Seasick, Soul Control, Black Kites, and Plaguebearers. Door fee is set at an unreasonably high stokeability to cost factor of $5.

Bloodhorse recently dropped Horizoner via Translation Loss. The band currently has no dates on their calendar, but if that changes, you can be damn sure that they'll let you know via their spankin' new twitter.

everybody looks like they are trying too hard

That sounds like the kind of thing someone who's trying too hard would say.

This show was AWESOME from start to finish.

@ 3:27

i agree. i mean, it takes a lot of work to smile casually, interact with fans between songs, hang out afterwards, support the bands on your bill by watching their sets from the crowd, high five a little kid in the audience. but you know, all that aside, the hardest part is pretending that you're actually really into the music that you've put all your heart and soul into.

@3:46 agreed

@3:27 you are worthless

Thank you Burnt By The Sun and especially Teddy for finally cracnking up the bass, that is what was missing from everyone else's sets but everyone still managed to kick ass

Yes, epic! Shows here, @ Chsrleston, etc. are so much more fun that the typical Gramercy/Irving plaza ones.

I had so much fun at this show!! It was small and 10000 degrees, but BBTS killed it.

Nice to see that Mike O is still a fucking BABE! Brings me back to swooning during Endeavor days.

Definitely one of the best shows in years. I got to watch facing the crowd- so much good energy! Mike was also rocking a Jason Jessee shirt-

Quotes of the show- "It's worse than CB's in here!" (friend of BBTS on the heat) "It feels like 2002!" (BBTS Bassist Teddy Patterson between songs)

these photos are some of the best i've seen in awhile
