Forgetters at Red 7 in Austin (more here)

Few hardcore and punk shows to put on your radar....

Forgetters will team with Oi band Hard Skin and Boston hardcore The Rival Mob for a killer three-way at Europa on Oct 22nd. Tickets are on sale. The show is one of three on Blake Schrazenbach's horizon. Forgetters will also play Cake Shop with Pregnant, These Days, and Bells on 9/10 and support Obits at Knitting Factory on 11/12. Their first 7" is out on September 21st.

Word is that Veins (with Mark McCoy of Das Oath, Charles Bronson, etc) was originally on the Hard Skin bill, but had to drop off, and speaking of Mark McCoy, his other project Failures has another show coming up. Australia's Straightjacket Nation will headline 538 Johnson with Failures, Vile Gash, Scapegoat, and Confines on 10/2. Veins, which also features members of Drunkdriver, Das Oath, and Castevet, recently pressed their great cassette on 7" vinyl. Pick up a copy via Youth Attack, it rules.

Speaking of Youth Attack, Brutal Chicago hardcore band Raw Nerve released their incredible self-titled LP on the label earlier this year. Though copies of that are long gone, you can still catch the band when they headline Acheron on 10/16 along with Manipulation, Perdition, and Concrete Cross (members Disnihil/Celebrity Murders).

They released their Songs for Burning Lovers LP, wowed me at Europa, and got robbed while on tour with Coliseum, but now Burning Love is back on the road and will hit Acheron on 9/25.

And last but certainly not least, look for a double dose of Danish Hardcore punk from Hjertestop when they play NYC twice in early November. On 11/8, look for the band to play The Charleston with Night Birds, Nomos, and Crazy Spirit while 11/9 gets Acheron with Swedes Fy Fan! and Crazy Spirit.

what does dms/fsu have to do with hard skin? they are a parody/joke band. i mean, theyre awesome but i dont get the fsu/dms thing. and since when does fsu do security in nyc? thought that was only in philly. for the record, i like jawbreaker but am by no means an "emo kid" or whatever.

The Rival Mob rules all. Will be in attendance, not smacking people.

DMS, is that like Dave Matthews Band?

Jawbreaker reunion would be significantly more well attended than Cap'n Jazz reunion. Get it together guys, it's like printing money.
