Youth of Today
Chaos in Tejas

After incredible shows with Cro-Mags/D-Clone at Emo's, Autopsy/Citizen's Arrest at Emo's, and Tragedy/Origin of M at Broken Neck, my third day at Chaos in Tejas started out at Emo's at 9PM where I caught a couple of songs by Spazm 151 before heading into see The Impalers on the inside stage. The Impalers is a supposedly short-lived project that features members of Mammoth Grinder, but from what I could tell, they could be taking it to another level. Brutal punk/crust with touches of metal.

After The Impalers, I hightailed it down to see one of my most anticipated shows of the fest, Youth of Today at Mohawk. Though Youth of Today had set-up but hadn't taken the stage (Ray Cappo was doing complicated yoga poses off stage), the energy was electric, with audience members literally moshing/stagediving to no music. Now that's excitement.

Ray Cappo, Porcell, Ken Olden, and drummer Vinny Panza are Youth of Today 2011, and as the band opened with the Break Down The Walls burner "Make a Change", Mohawk erupted with energy. The stage dives continued for the duration of their set as they played faves like "Disengage" and both a 7 Seconds ("Young Till I Die") and a Minor Threat cover ("Minor Threat"). Though I missed it, I heard from a few that there were people diving off of the top of Mohawk's balcony into the crowd below. Check out the video below. The show was one of the highlights of my night.... though there were a few.

After Youth of Today, I headed back to Emo's to catch a few minutes of the always fun Shitstorm (who also played Maryland Deathfest), followed by Feral Ward's signees Kieltolaki. Kieltolaki's crusty d-beat was great, but I cut out early to check out Iron Age at their last ever show (supposedly). It was good to see them one last time and the crowd responded appropriately, with fists raised, stage divers, and a pit. They will be missed.

Kriegshog
Chaos in Tejas

After watching a good portion of Iron Age, I made sure to leave to check out all of Kriegshog, as the band was playing their first and last ever US show. The noisy Japanese crust band were furious, and the indoor Emo's crowd went insane for their short but incendiary live set which was comprised of material from their self-titled record, the Hardcore Hell EP, and various splits. Stage divers dove on top of each other, hung from the rafters, and ate up ever moment of the band's blistering performance. Check out their recorded material if you haven't already, its amazing.

Miasmal (who were also impressive at Maryland Deathfest) played the headlining slot on the indoor stage so I watched them until crusty hardcore legends Doom were ready outdoors. After Kriegshog the crowd outdoors were ready for more crusty hardcore, so the energy that the Tokyo band had built during their set only helped make Doom's set all the more incredible. Not to say that Doom was anything less than amazing on their own - their set was even somehow better than their showing at Maryland Deathfest, but it doesn't hurt to have a lead-in as amazing as Kriegshog was. Helluva way to finish off an amazing night three at Chaos in Tejas.

And while Tim and I were checking out crust, hardcore and metal, Keith Marlowe and Harriet Roberts were checking out garage and rock from bands like Guitar Wolf. Their set from Saturday is on the way. Ours continues, with video, below...

"Shit will be bananas."

No, the shit will be sausages.

Posted by Jimmy Fallon | June 8, 2011 4:14 PM

YOT! LOL....brainwashed teenagers are stoked...

Awaits the further influx of faggots who will talk shit about the festival.

Ugh. Enough of this Austin Vegan shit please.

Posted by Anonymous | June 8, 2011 4:21 PM

Austin Vegan Sausage FTL....such tragic taste. This venue must have smelt like axe and proactive.

Posted by Anonymous | June 8, 2011 4:25 PM

Hey, even though I'm not a fan of most metal, there are a few great bands out there that really know how to rip up a stage. All of you haters need to chill out and dip a few baby carrots into the hummus platter and allow the positive chickpea vibrations cheer you up.

looks like alot of weiners at emos

i think weinerfest is much better than sausagefest

Have been loving the Chaos coverage, thanks for all the great photos/info

Extremely sad Kriegshog is only playing one US show.

If you're going to fly all the way to the US how about doing at least a little touring (both coasts)

The asian dude from looks like RUFIO from the movie HOOK.

Posted by The Real Real Yup. PERIOD | June 8, 2011 5:55 PM

did the store run out of clown makeup? These are just run of the mill tattooed losers, where are the costumes?

Posted by Anonymous | June 8, 2011 6:01 PM

Kriegshog played 2 US shows, technically; one being the night before this at the Broken Neck with Double Negative. Both were insane.

Posted by Anonymous | June 8, 2011 6:38 PM

^ Correct. Though that wasnt announced until right before the fest started and was a "special guest" billing.

Thanks for the input... I probably should have noted that.

Posted by BBG | June 8, 2011 7:46 PM

Well, it appears the douche factory didn't run out of indie losers it seems.

Posted by Anonymous | June 8, 2011 10:48 PM

for all the pseudo intellectual douchebags who post anything about sausages, you are either a) gay or b) a total loser.

why a loser? because unless you are really hard up, a guido, or have no taste in music, there are more important things about going to see live bands than trying to score with the opposite sex. it is supposed to be about the music...

if all you care about is if there will be girls there or not, than you are really fucking lame and are probably an "alternative" / hipster/ trendy douche who just listens to whatever is popular at the moment so you can flirt with girls.

Look, I'm with you in wanting defend punk/crust/metal/hardcore and this festival, but you're not doing our cause any favors.

Posted by Anonymous | June 9, 2011 2:04 AM

fuck yes! SPAZM 151!!! thought they broke up...thanks for the pics BBG!

Wow, these are truly some of the most homoerotic photos I've seen in quite a long long time. Seriously gay, kind of amazing. That drummer from Youth of Today is completely naked. Must have been quite an after party

Posted by LÜC | June 9, 2011 9:59 AM

Hey look, a bunch of dudes who are crazy stoked to see bands. Let's trash them!

These comments scare me. When did BV readers turn into such homophobes?
