The show was Planks' first in NYC, and were very impressive as they ran through songs from their self-titled 12" in addition to newer material (watch their ENTIRE set below). Tombs played a good portion of new material as well, and are even more venomous with the addition of a second guitar (video below). Gods & Queens channelled song structures from greats like Quicksand, Helmet, and other 90s bands, killing it in the process (video below). Radiation Black Body's instrumental grind/hardcore brought to mind a jazzier Bastard Noise without the electronics. In all, a fantastic string of four bands.
Justin and I arrived at the venue late, missing Dawn and Yautja. Pictures and video of the rest of the show, continue below...
