Brain Killer

While I was watching a man beat another with a pizza box, Boston hardcore band Brain Killer played a pair of shows as part of a memorial in honor of Nick Poot, the first of which hit Tommy's Tavern on Jan 15th with Nomad, Earthpig, State of Decline & Longpigs (some pics are over at show booker Undead's site). The second show, where the photos in this post orginate from, took place over this weekend (Jan 22nd) at 538 Johnson with Parasytic, Perdition, and Nomos. Jason House reports:

It was really intense, especially when it came time for Brain Killer. There was PA trouble right before Parasytic was set to start, and it was switched out for one that obviously wasn't able to handle it. It did the trick, but the last 2 sets essentially sounded like they were being screamed through a CB radio. By the end, nearly everyone in the room was singing along so it didn't really much matter anyway. I never had a chance to meet Nick or see him play, but judging by energy in that room, he will be sorely missed.
R.I.P. Nick. More photos from #201 at 538 Johnson are below.

who cares? i was friend of nick's and his brother is incredibly dear to me. i also know his parents who are great as well. they have all been through a lot recently. take it easy with those comments. i felt kinda lousy about not flying over to ny for any of these but i was certainly there in spirit. thanks to everyone who went to this show. it looks amazing. you are all good people.
and to the Mardanes family, i wish you the best and i'm so sorry for your loss. stay strong, live long.
rip Nick. miss you buddy

@ 6:09...you are obsessed with cock. seriously. take a break for a sec. get the "sausage" off your plate too, its brooklyn VEGAN after all, not "brooklyn repressed homo who is obsessed with cock and wants penises in his mouth" im just saying. or if you like sausage so much, why not find yourself a gloryhole? safe, anonymous, and discrete. seriously, enough with the sausage comments. suck a dick already dude(s).

Sorry I actually acknowledged that guy. I thought people would lay off since it was a memorial show. This was an amazing show and Nick was obviously well loved and it showed. I'm glad I got to be a part of it and share it with those who couldn't make it.
