OFF! at BV/POTR Deathmatch (more by Tanner Douglass)
OFF!

Born in Chicago, Riot Fest expanded to Philadelphia last year, and will keep that fire burning in 2012. This time around, Riot Fest East will host The Promise Ring, August Burns Red, Boy Sets Fire, Gameface, Hirs, Refused & OFF!, and more. The festival, which runs from July 19th - July 21st has yet to reveal the full lineup, but three-day passes and tickets for the Thursday show (see flyer above) are on sale.

The Promise Ring's appearance is one of at least four dates for the band, with two going down at or around Bamboozle and another at The Fillmore in San Francisco on September 1st. The band recently did a few dates include one in Chicago (pictures here).

Refused and OFF! will also hit Brooklyn on tour.

OFF! is 1000% better than Fucked Up.

When the hell did Refused become so popular?! That band/dudes used to get laughed out of shows in the mid 90's.

Refused, Promise Ring, Gameface, Boy Sets Fire looks awful?

Ahh, to be young and dumb.

10:29: at least 24-7 Spyz were on InEffect Records. You roll with InEffect - means you roll with the Alleyway Crew, son.

He Refused my Promise Ring so I put on my Gameface and my Boy Set Fire to this show

Actually, yes compared to last year with X,Naked Raygun,Dead Milkmen and Descendants..this lineup looks awful so far..

Refused will blow any of what these hipster loves these days. Yes that includes Grizzly Bear, Foster the People, Cut Copy and other garbage artists mentioned on this website.

Off! is the only band worth anyone's time on that bill.

11:00: haha, you are a bonafide fool. Either that, or you're 17.

I'm really surprised that people like OFF! so much. Seriously guys, there is NOTHING new going on here. Is the fascination just that Keith Morris is a legend and you'll support this project? Besides that, I just don't get it.

Gameface was the worst. Not everyone needs to reform.

I am 10:05. I like both Off! and Fucked Up. As usual, you fucking retards need shit pre-chewed for you, so here it is => My post was stating the obvious, that Off! was being given the same hype machine BLASTS that Fucked Up has been accused of for the past few years. Everywhere you look now it's Off! Off! Off! OK, we get it, new hardcore band with nice pedigree, but ENOUGH WITH THE HYPE AND SHIT. And you fuckers were too stupid to see what I was trying to say. As usual. And, if you hate Fucked Up, then you don't have a pulse, or any taste whatsoever, so dump your hate somewhere else.

Sold out.

Perfect for the aggro 20 years (at least) behind the times of macho dumb philly. Maybe the men of the city of brotherly love can finally "release" and the world becomes a better place for all.

Here's my take on Off! in three parts:

1. They're overrated and have the machine behind them and connections to do what they do / have done.

2. They are a newer band made up of old dudes with a pulse in a music world where very few bands have one.

3. They're hustlers getting out there anyway they can and going for broke.

Hardcore punk and really underground music in general, has no teeth/bite/fire to it because the big talk is about a band whose vocalist is 56 years old. If anything Keith & Co. are showing up alot of bands and it's sad more than funny cuz it never used to be that way.

Off! is an in their own way ball of passion and power in a sea of precision and proficiency mistaken for passion and power, and you know what? There'd be more bands like Off! if more people went for broke.

Going for REFUSED only.

Of the other bands, only heard of Boy Sets Fire. Don't care too much for them or the other bands I've not heard of. Don't care about OFF! either, because I don't know them.

I'm there for REFUSED and REFUSED only.
