The Men

The Men are now on the road after playing 538 Johnson last night (8/4) with an Brain F, Nomos, Only The Messengers, and Face The Rails. If you missed them, their next Brooklyn show is at Saint Vitus with Pygmy Shrews and Vaz on 9/17 after the tour.

Here are some pictures from 538 Johnson (though unfortunately none of the openers). More of them below...

The men is right. Why wasn't this at St. Vitus?

Now THIS looked like a fagfest.

3:30 yep, This should have been at The Sausage Factory

Posted by Anonymous | August 5, 2011 3:06 PM

Why wasnt it at Saint Vitus? Because 538 is the epicenter for punk and hardcore in NY. And theyre playing there in September anyway, so what does it matter?

Great show. Great band. Good luck on the tour men.

Jesus Christ! WTF!!! Why are a bunch of sweaty agro bros trying to mount each other?!?!

Far from a fag or sausage fest. 538 brings out the beautiful girls.

I don't even know what to say. There is something deeply disturbing about those pictures.

That one dude's back hair has scarred me for life.

Janeane Garofalo's AIDS ridden Vagina > that one dude's back hair

So how are you HIV-ridden trendies doing? I take it it's been a good day so far? BV must really like you, giving you all these photos of sweaty dudes to satiate your loin-stirred desires.

Keep it up BV! No hipster can resist drooling over a "sauage fest" like this one, amirite? This is like the Best of Playgirl to all yous!

wow two aids jokes in a row :(

Posted by Anonymous | August 5, 2011 3:20 PM

The sound sucked, it could have should have been waaaay louder.
Rowdy show though...glad to see people going nuts at shows

did this show have something to do with puberty?

Posted by Anonymous | August 5, 2011 3:22 PM

538 ... JOHNSON. How fitting.

Posted by Anonymous | August 5, 2011 3:27 PM

^ yep JOHNSON FEST

Posted by Anonymous | August 5, 2011 3:32 PM

3:16 likes these shows because he can have his taint and pecker touched by men and thinks that it's not gay because it's an undulating pile of sausage. But, we all know the truth lol ... a closeted homosexual always makes AIDS jokes, it's whistling in the dark. Keep it up 3:16, I won't tell ;) lol

Posted by Anonymous | August 5, 2011 3:35 PM

Wow. This looks like a horrible place to be.

Posted by Anonymous | August 5, 2011 3:39 PM

There is some serious frotteurism going on here.

What circle of hell is this? And what kind of crimes does one have to commit to be banished to it?

Posted by Anonymous | August 5, 2011 3:43 PM

All the homo comments aside, when did The Men get so popular? Seems like they're really gaining some steam, at least in the NYC area.

Posted by Anonymous | August 5, 2011 3:46 PM

Don't go to any shows, but complain about the photos.

Posted by Anonymous | August 5, 2011 3:48 PM

3:35: I hear Peter Steele of Type O Negative fame posed for Playgirl. I think eBay is your best bet if you want to get a copy now. Just make sure after you're done jerking off to wait at least an hour so can process the shame a bit. Wouldn't want to go outside and then be thinking that in front of other people now would you. I'd tell you to look at yourself in the mirror, but you're not up to that stap yet.

Meat puppetry at its finest.

I don't know whether Nick DiPailo would be appalled or sort of into this.

Posted by Anonymous | August 5, 2011 3:57 PM

3:16 / 3:51 - your secret is safe here, sweetheart lol. i don't care if you're gay or not, just don't look at me like that OK? I'm not a faggot. You're the faggot, not me. So, take your lustful eyes elsewhere.

"I don't know whether Nick DiPaolo would be appalled or sort of into this."

He's making some new jokes about how BV trendies salivate (like glands-penis afficionado, 3:57) at all these types of conventions.

back hair is the new chest hair

Posted by Anonymous | August 5, 2011 4:01 PM

4:00 knows that because Nick told him last night, as he was sticking his penis up 4:00's ass
that's nasty, man. you're nasty, 4:00.

Posted by Anonymous | August 5, 2011 4:03 PM

Can you imagine the scene when The Men play The Sausage Factory on 9/17? It's going to be like the perfect storm of repressed homosexuality.

Posted by Anonymous | August 5, 2011 4:08 PM

Wow, some serious faggistry going on here (pics and comments).
You guys need to go learn how to talk to women or something. If you're confused or not sure, that is. If you're flat out gay, then whatever.

^ Too lame. I'll give it a 0.9 because I'm feeling generous. Off to the clinic you go again, sport!

538 Johnson is a great venue, I did not know they still had shows...

538 Johnson is the new YMCA

Posted by Anonymous | August 5, 2011 4:14 PM

I think I counted four girls in all those pictures, so whatever ones this venue "brings out" must have been in el bano touching up their faces.

Nick DiPaolo taps his foot twice in public restrooms if you know what I'm saying...

More girls here than the T-cell count of the average trendy.

which one of the MEN had the biggest JOHNSON at this sausage festival?

Posted by Anonymous | August 5, 2011 6:26 PM

Faggot hipster facial hair must be incredibly uncomfortable in a hot sweaty manpit like this.

Posted by Anonymous | August 5, 2011 6:43 PM

show looks like it was fun for those who attended.

This is about as punk as a Blink 182 video on MTV.

Posted by Anonymous | August 5, 2011 7:23 PM

fun is being in a sweltering hot room sandwiched between a large group of sweaty men

Posted by Anonymous | August 5, 2011 7:38 PM

Im convinced all this shit talking is one or two people who are really bored.

Posted by Anonymous | August 5, 2011 7:42 PM

All time stamps: Please bring come to the next 538 show so you can get the shit kicked out of you by some "faggot" "hipster" "johnsons." Would be a pleasure to bust your teeth with our soft MTV-watching knuckles.

^ Your last words before hanging yourself, right? Lol

Posted by Anonymous | August 5, 2011 8:38 PM

Wait. Did someone seriously threaten people with sweaty mano a mano action for making fun of sweaty mano a mano action? I'm sure everyone will rush right over, 7:45.

"punk is so much better when there aint pictures of it."

What happens in Johnson, stays in Johnson. I believe that's what you're trying to say.

Normal people hate punks.

Posted by Anonymous | August 6, 2011 1:31 PM

I have to agree with almost everyone commenting...when people aren't using flourescent colors, feathers, and rainbow propeller hats to make themselves look crafty, clever, and creative...the whole thing just seems really gay. Epic fail, 538.

Yeah 538 is the lamest place for shows. Its always so expensive to get in an the bathroom always has a long line. Jeepers, no good bands even ever play! As you can see there are no women present, especially not scantily dressed babes gettin drunk. Theres no fun times to be had at all... i just dont get it!
