Universal Order of Armageddon

Well, let's not say "reuniting." Writes drummer-turned-Del Posto pastry chef Brooks Headley: "It's not a reunion! It's a money losing labor of love!" Of all the bands from the first great American early '90s post-hardcore wave--Born Against, Moss Icon, Man Is the Bastard, etc.--Universal Order of Armageddon seemed like one of the longest shots to reunite: their reign was brief and fierce and lasted only a couple of years in the first place. But a benefit for Baltimore's Wham City drew them back in, and now Headley brings news that the band will perform in New York at Death By Audio (with locals Silk Flowers) the day after their already announced July 24th return at Whartscape. - [Village Voice]
That's right, Universal Order of Armageddon will reunite for a one-off show on July 25th at Death by Audio at 11pm. Members of UOA have gone on join bands like Born Against, Bellmer Dolls, The Great Unraveling, Men's Recovery Project, Moss Icon and many others. If it's one tenth as good as the Rorschach reunion, you had better be there.

Whartscape has quite a few killer bands slated for appearance including Lightning Bolt, Arab on Radar, Dan Deacon Ensemble, and many many more. Tickets are on sale in daily and "megapass" (aka all weekend) varieties (though if you want to seee UOaA, take note). Full updated Whatscape lineup and some videos are below...

damn you UOA, why are you playing the wknd im away. severely depressed but at least i saw cap'n jazz in chicago last wknd. Okay Tonie Joy, on top of UOA now its time to get Moss Icon back together again. I'll settle for the line up of Born Against that you played in as well.
