Sunn POTR

BrooklynVegan and Scenic are proud to announce our involvement in the first-ever East Coast edition of The Power of The Riff! The two-day event happens Labor Day Weekend and will feature a kick off party on the day before (8/31) and pre/post parties on the days of the shows. Save the dates, September 1st and 2nd at Warsaw in Brooklyn where you'll catch:

THE POWER OF THE RIFF 'EAST'
September 1st and 2nd 2012

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 1
Pentagram
SPECIAL GUEST playing a special album set
Poison Idea
Negative Approach
Xibalba
Alpha & Omega
Power Trip

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 2
SUNN 0)))
Winter
Repulsion
Unearthly Trance

+ 1 more band TBA


Tickets go on sale for single shows on Monday 7/2 at noon (Saturday HERE and Sunday HERE) or you can purchase a single weekend pass.

The Warsaw show is The Power of The Riff's first venture on the East Coast after two years of successful events in Los Angeles (pictures of year 1 HERE, year two HERE). Organizers / creators Greg Anderson and Sam James Velde are in the eye of the hurricane, tapping into a line up that represents the forefathers, current touring acts, plus shedding light on "up and coming" and local acts. Year three on the West coast kicks off on August 11th at Echo/Echoplex in LA with OFF!, Dr.Know, Repulsion, Noothgrush, Xibalba, and many more. Check out the flyer below along with video from 2011.

BrooklynVegan and Power of The Riff combined forces for both a day and night show during SXSW this year. If you missed it, check out pictures from our Converse/Thrasher Deathmatch party (HERE, HERE and HERE) as well as our official showcase.

How can Poison Idea be playing?

about time!!!! this will be fucking awesome!!!

This is such a mediocre lineup. Sunn are so incredibly boring live, rest of these bands play all the freaking time. And Pentagram is a god damn embarrassment at this point.

@doh: don't go then, it's gonna be one less idiot in the room...

I would guess the 2nd headliner on the 1st day is going to be either Goatsnake or Sleep

Holy shit - this is the first fest I've been really psyched on since I went to Neurosis's Beyond the Pale in '01 and '02! Can't wait!

@doh Im sure there will be plenty of good TV you can watch that weekend...

Posted by Anonymous | June 29, 2012 2:25 PM

And I wouldn't want a scarf to be in the same room as any of these bands.

Posted by Anonymous | June 29, 2012 2:32 PM

Watching TV would be far superior. And you bet your ass I won't be going.

Posted by doh | June 29, 2012 2:53 PM

Yes, yes we know... And you was yourself with a rag on a stick. We get it.

@ 4:58 Are you aware that you are functionally illiterate?

Posted by Anonymous | June 29, 2012 6:28 PM

Negative Approach is playing.
Thats worth it for Saturday. The rest of the bands maybe not too much.

Posted by Anonymous | June 29, 2012 7:01 PM

More like Power of the Whiff.

Xibalba!!!! WHOOOOOA!

Posted by Michaela | June 29, 2012 11:37 PM

This is Xibalba, the hardcore band from CA, not the death metal band from Mexico.

"Poison idea?!?!!?
How?"

They never stopped playing when Pig Champion died. They do shows every year. Definitely not a rarity or novelty here.

Posted by Don Pablo | July 1, 2012 7:43 PM

Negative Approach is awesome, but their songs are hardly considered 'riffs'

"Are you aware that you are functionally illiterate?"


Does that even make sense? Sounds like a weak oxymoron you came up with right there.
