Lou with Refused at Terminal 5 (more by BBG)
Lou Koller of SOIA

As originally discovered back in January, and further confirmed in Summerstage's 2012 schedule (but previously with no artists) CBGB is throwing a festival...

The four-day festival is scheduled to begin on July 5 and will showcase about 300 rock bands. Concerts will take place at around 30 places, from large stages like Central Park Summerstage and Webster Hall to small clubs like the Trash Bar in Williamsburg and the Living Room on the Lower East Side...

The festival will also stage a free concert in Central Park with Guided by Voices, the Pains of Being Pure at Heart and Cloud Nothings [on July 7]. A few veteran rockers have agreed to appear: David Johansen, a former member of the New York Dolls, has committed to do a show, as has the Baseball Project, the supergroup formed by Peter Buck of R.E.M. and Steve Wynn of Dream Syndicate. -[NY Times]

A few other confirmed shows as part of the festival have emerged too. Sick of It All will join Vision of Disorder, Cro-Mags, Absolution and Sai Nam for a show at Webster Hall on July 6th. Tickets are on sale.

D Generation will headline Bowery Electric on July 7th with ROMANS, Brass Knuckle Evangelists and The Bamboo Kids. Tickets are on sale.

Stay tuned for more (including the full lineup announcement).

vod...they were awful in 1996 at wetlands and coney island high...wonder how comical they could be as fat middle aged guys.

That free GBV gig is going to be a shit show. They should just charge admission to keep the rif raff out. I hate free shows (and people that go to them!)

10:21 - Probably about as comical as you as a fat middle aged guy.

Glad they finally announced the lineup, but wish it was intelligible beyond the Central Park Show. There's nothing on the website under "Schedule," not even where those bands are playing. Just... nothing.

These fan-bases are going to clash. The SOIA/Cro-Mag goons are not going to like the GBV hippies one bit.

A "festival" in the name of a venue that hasn't existed in a decade and hadn't been relevant for 2 decades.

Posted by Anonymous | May 8, 2012 10:45 AM

10:41: Reminds me of the time I went to see Clutch who had Coheed (of all bands!) opening for them. Needless to say, the fans mixed like oil and water. But I think this is more discerning lol.

BTW, VOD were probably better in 1998 than in 1996 as they had the superior record Imprint. No they're not really fat, but even getting close to middle aged, they still pack more energy into a show than most bands out there that are in their 20s. Boo yow.

I agree. Too many people going to free shows just because it is free. They should at least charge a nominal amount to keep the riffraff out.

LOL @ CBGB using a pic of Harley in the Cro-Mags description when Harley isn't in the band (which is a Cro-Mags cover band calling themselves Cro-Mags without him but whatever.)

Posted by Semi-Anonymous | May 8, 2012 2:07 PM

Oh I "get it", Anonymous Prime (cool username - use it all the time like I use D all the time.) You've taken the first step towards not being anonymous. The next step is to type with personality so there's no question that it's you and no one can pose as you without being called out as impostors.

I love how comments is full of anonymous people telling me I'm anonymous when I post as D all the time and there is no mistaking that it is me.

Too bad if most of you don't like that I write clear, coherent thoughts not smarmy Twitter-like drivel like 99% of you write because you haven't read a book since Twitter was launched.

Exibet A:
"The next step is to type with personality so there's no question that it's you and no one can pose as you without being called out as impostors."

Exhibit B:
"I love how comments is full of anonymous people telling me I'm anonymous when I post as D all the time and there is no mistaking that it is me."

Question for the counselor - If you believe that you are identified most prominently by how you write (as opposed to the alleged "impostors" who you claim to not write in the same way), then how can the other posters be truly "anonymous" since I am easily able to pick out at least 5 major serial posters on here by the way that they write, and I lack the amazing powers of perception that you intimate?

Don't answer too quick D - you may want to think about this one for a while.
OK, don't say I didn't warn you.

If there were one serial BV poster I'd like to meet and punch in the face this month, it would be "relevance guy." Every thread he shows up declaring something "not relevant." The world would be a better place if that guy never attended a concert or wrote about music again.

I'm happy about this free concert and festival. Y'all a bunch of miserable bastards.

I believe "The Real Yup Yup Yup. PERIOD" (or something like that - stupidest name ever, BTW), was a she. And yes, she was mostly full of pointless commentary. I think she disappeared several months before 'D' showed up though (which was like when? February?).

As they should as he, his DMS pals Minus and SOB, and their non-DMS affiliates etc. killed CBGB Sunday matinees in '89 and ganged up on lone kids at shows 1989-94.

Dmize!, Merauder, Madball, Crown Of Thornz, and H20 were the worst things to ever happen to NYHC.

But you keep believing revisionist history about how those guys "saved" NYHC.

Wow, 6:36pm sure is a fucking herb who wasn't even sperm or more when I got into hardcore.

Keep trying to make yourself feel better about how you were born in whatever year 1980-94 and missed the last era of music. It must suck to know your teens were any four-year span from I'd say 2000 on.

Weird how you sound like a child using words like "retarded".

Posted by D | May 8, 2012 6:45 PM

^bwahahaha

I know I was born in 1982 and not a day goes by where I don't beat myself up about it.

D really is a suspended adolescent fool.

Posted by Anonymous | May 8, 2012 6:51 PM

LOL @ you telling me you're 30 (or will turn 30 this year), fellow old fucker. Finally one of you had the fucking balls to post his/her year of birth.

Did you know that 30 was considered ancient back in the '70s, '80s, and even '90s? And most people aged 18 and under would consider you an "old fucker", too. How's that glass house you're living in holding up?

You should beat yourself up about being born in 1982. You weren't even in kindergarten when Licensed To Ill came out. You were listening to Menudo at the height of NYHC and the '80s music scene. You were getting all hot and bothered by New Kids On The Block at the height of thrash metal, rap, and indie rock, and became a teenager just before Metallica put out Load Of Shit and Re-Load Of Shit.
Oh yeah - your highschool years were during the whole barfarama punk/ska explosion and early days of numetal and metalcore, and your college years were 2000-2004. So what numetal did you jack off to in the dorm? LOL. 30 years old. Go listen to Limp Bizkit, herb.

You also missed out on all the great music in general 1982-96 save what Mommy And Daddy played while you were going beddy-bye which was probably '60s and '70s stuff you ignored cuz look at all the shit that's come out since 1996.

Posted by D | May 8, 2012 7:18 PM

7:13pm - Your life is a waste because you're 25 years old (or turning 25 this year) and worrying sooo much about what a supposed "old man" is writing, so asshurt he is calling out what you were when and what you missed out on, you have to post it in comments of a music blog instead of do something productive like watch tv (which is more productive than this shit.)

You are a dumb fuck for not being born when LTI came out. It's good to admit this. Tell your pals in Odd Future they should, too, since they come off like Erkels wishing they were Beasties.

Odd Future = Erkel Boys LOL.

You can all thank Harley Flanagan for ruining the night for everyone,” Cro-Mags lead singer John Joseph McGowan told the crowd.

also J.J. don't forget to thank James Dressler Jimmy Gestapo
for inciting harley the day before the show putting the buzz in his ear to fuck over the cro-mags, sick of it all show. telling harley That he needs to man up and take a stand against J.J. getting harley high and strung out to commite a violent act against the scene. it is known that Jimmy G smuggled the knife in by band equiptment and hide it in the vip telling harley where to find it the next day to use it against the band. jimmy gestapo dressler is just as fault and guilty for inciting harley to commit attemped murder. James dressler also back stabbed a fellow member DMS by having harley stab gook in the vip. thats why harley didn't do it at the a.f. show and mike gook was there for harley to get revenge. but jimmy told him to get gook and J.J. The next day at cro-mags and soia instead so it wouldn't ruin the m.l. show with a.f. the day after. Jimmy gestapo and harley will both have to face the facts soon for there actions. Harley should have never listen to James dressler/ Jimmy gestapo. a real sad chapter in nyhc history.
