Tragedy at Red 7 last week (more by Tim Griffin)

Portland d-beat favorites Tragedy return to NYC with a whallop of a supporting cast in The Boston Strangler, Sickoids and Perdition at Le Poisson Rouge Saturday (5/12). Tickets are still available. The band is touring in support of their new sludge-infested LP Darker Days Ahead out now at their shows and available via a distro near you in the near future. Check out more pictures from their recent Austin show HERE.

In case you were curious, no Portland's Tragedy will NOT be opening for a screening of Saturday Night Fever at Prospect Park on 7/14 but Tragedy, the "all metal tribute to the Bee Gees" will. The full Celebrate Brooklyn Prospect Park concert schedule was announced earlier this week and also includes a Mission of Burma show among many others.

Check out some live video of the Portland Tragedy in action below.

That band VAR goes by that name now because WAR is a semi-famous mainstream rock band.

No one should confuse the overrated Tragedy from Portland with the wack Tragedy from NYC. Also neither is at a level where people should change their band's name for them or one of them would've changed it.

^ But they DO get confused apparently from this article alone. If neither wants to change it fine. But I hope they're fine with putting up with it, should it somehow get out of hand.

Here's the thing:

The d-beat Tragedy is from Portland, OR which is very far away from NYC. Because this Tragedy is so far away from NYC, they play NYC on the order of once every 12-18 months. They also play with hardcore punk bands and the like. If you see Tragedy playing with a bunch of hardcore punk bands, it's a safe bet that they're the Portland band. If they're playing with a bunch of non-hardcore punk bands and/or it's one NYC/area show with no other East Coast shows, it's a safe bet that they're the New York band.

BV makes the distinction every time these two play, so I see no mixup save in people who don't read the info on BV.
