doomriders

Sweet Cobra had a helluva welcome at their very first NYC appearance on February 12th. A few short moments after the Chicago band took the Union Pool stage, the show sold out. It helped that they were the first band on a serious bill that included the heavyweight left-right punches of Thin-Lizzy-worshipping skate-punks Doomriders & dark-doom-lords Unearthly Trance.

The room was packed to the gills with moshpits breaking out during Unearthly Trance that were only later outdone by the crowdsurfing during Doomriders. More pictures and some videos from the incredible Saturday show are below.

3:20- it's ok, we dont discriminate. If gay men want to keep commenting on "sausages" they can.

The first photo: the guy in blue, with his finger in the air.

This is just one of many reasons you do not need to attend shows like this.

On another note, I never noticed the guitar player for UT played a Gibson Sonex 180 Custom. COOL!

@4:44 fuck that guy, you would let that dude ruin a $12 DOOMRIDERS show for you? The soaring dual solo's of DR set his shitty little scarf on fire anyways. I saw it with mine eyes. Problemo Solvo.
