A Storm of Light at the Tone Deaf showcase (more by Greg Cristman)
A Storm of Light

A Storm of Light plays NYC TONIGHT as part of a round of dates with Mustard Gas & Roses (mem Isis) and Magic Circle. Tickets are still available for the Saint Vitus show. The band recently played a round of dates surrounding SXSW including the Tone Deaf showcase (pictures). Tonight's show is in direct competition with Hull, Mutilation Rites, Batillus and Trenchgrinder at Acheron, the latter two of which played Lovejoy's as part of the BV Day Party. Hull also played Red 7 with Fear on 3/15, which was down the street from Pallbearer, Screaming Females, Ringworm & Power Trip (pictures).

Punk rock crew Kim Phuc will team with Family Curse and Herzog Rising to play Death By Audio on April 7th. The show is one of a few notable and recently added shows at the space, including April 14th with White Suns (who have a new LP on Load, stream a song below), Pop 1280, and Richard, April 28th with Dysrhythmia, Kayo Dot & Vaura, and 4/29 with a mystery guest, Child Abuse, Behold...The Arctopus and PAK.

Check out the recent Decibel Flexi of In Solitude covering Samhain's "Mother of Mercy".

Youth Attack have updated their site with orders for the new Salvation House of the Beating Hell EP, new second Hoax EP, a new ARTS LP Thousand Wounds of War, and so much more. Head to their site for more details (I recommend the Hoax, ARTS and Salvation records).

If you missed it, we posted two sets of pictures from Deatmatch during SXSW (SET 1, SET 2), a set of pictures from Lovejoy's during SXSW, my official showcase during SXSW, and pictures from our bridge show. We welcomed a new EP from Cop Problem, interviews with Black God, new shows from Ilsa, Rorschach, Old Man Gloom, D-Clone, Young Widows, Autopsy and more. Got stoked and then immediately diappointed with the Kiss it Goodbye reunion and scratched our heads in disbelief at the "Death to All" reunion and Wolvhammer cover of The Cure (the latter in a positive way).

More suggested shows, a stream of a new Horseback song, the Split Cranium LP (with Aaron of Isis and members of Circle) a 16 song, an Author & Punisher song, a White Suns song and more is below. What did I miss?

Sausage fest at St. Vitus!!!

Posted by Anonymous | March 23, 2012 3:52 PM

You know I like some of these sausage bands, and would definitely be down for going out to see some of them were it not for the damn sausage fans. I'm a tolerant guy when it comes to men and women who come out and live gay (it's their choice), but the closeted, the deceptive, the misrepresentivists are the ones that give me the heebie jeebies. Sausages look at your junk, and stare just a little too long, and then act all like "you're a fag" to deflect the obvious crazy homoerotic feelings welling up within them. I guess it goes with all that satanism silliness, all the anti-for-sake-of-anti nonsense. Were it not for that, I'd be all into seeing some of these shows. Except for Danzig, he's just plain a fucking embarrassment of a person.

4:23 - Depends on what bands you're seeing, but I don't get where you're getting this idea that metalheads are somehow the figurehead of homophobia. It's really no worse as a whole than the population at large - if you actually met people instead of thinking all metalheads are represented by BV trolls. If you're going to some NS shows, then, yeah, you'll probably run into those attitudes, but I've never been to a show where I've been required to be friends with everyone in the room or even interact at all, so someone being homophobic doesn't even really come up.

4:23 sounds like a more quasi-tolerant "sausage" commenter, with some misguided information unsurprisingly. Kudos, I guess?

All this talk of sausage is making me hungry..
I know they use to serve kielbasi
at WARSAW. They also have a kielbasi bun at St. Vitus.
By the way there are such things as Gay Metal-Heads.
