Hoeks

So a few weeks ago,I sat down with Crustcake.com and Rich Hall (1000 Knives) to decide the greatest Austin venue for a metal show. BrooklynVegan metal is already going HUGE this year between a show on 3/17 at Emo's (with Torche, Fucked Up, Salome, Dark Castle, The Atlas Moth, Javelina and more TBA), and another day party at Red 7 on 3/20 (lineup TBA), so we figured why not go small. REALLY small.

BrooklynVegan/Crustcake/1000 Knives Present a Pizza Party at Hoeks Death Metal Pizza! The day show happening on Thursday, March 18th will be headlined by a special guest we can't announce yet and feature nine of our favorite destroyers. This show promises to be one of the biggest- um, I mean SMALLEST metal shows during SXSW. Who's on board?

lineup:
* Special guest
* Zoroaster
* Coffinworm
* Kill The Client
* Landmine Marathon
* Book of Black Earth
* The Atlas Moth
* The Funeral Pyre
* Speedwolf
Anyone from or who's been to Austin knows Hoeks. Even if you've never eaten there you can't miss their appropriately themed locale, conveniently located right on 6th Street between Red River and Neches. It's practically spitting distance from Emo's. The show itself will take place in the new venue that is actually the backyard of the restaurant.

The party kicks off at noon. More details are on the way. Check out the flyer and some videos of other recent shows at Hoeks below...

When I was at SXSW last year I thought Hoek's was pretty cool, and now that they're throwing a metal showcase they are DEFINITELY cool, but I gotta say I was really underwhelmed by the pizza. Then again, it was SXSW and they were churning out pies inhumanly quickly and also I'm a pizza snob from New York City.

Yeah, the Pizza ain't for Fine Dining it's for curing that next morning Hangover.

The whole Snow LP is pretty solid. And these guys easily sold out 3 NYC shows already.

^^^Maybe these are scalpers upset about the T5 addition?

That's some impressive hair in the first photo! I wonder what kind of conditioner the guitarist uses ... where can I catch you live in 2011? I recently moved to the area and can't wait to see what all the buzz is about.

Oh, and what about those question marks on Sunday's text in the concert poster below? No, that isn't saving a spot for a Smiths reunion or U2 debut on the Coachella stage, it's the way that Yorke presents himself as a solo star, the marquee at his Orpheum concert had the same punctuational flourish.

How did I miss that!? Looked amazing!

I'm sure I saw Atlas Moth and Speedwolf in a club in downtown philly about 2 years ago! I love their style. I wish there was more stuff like this on in Chicago though!
