Sick of It All at Webster Hall in 2011 (more by Kurt Christiansen)
Sick of it All

When word got out that Sick of It All and Cro-Mags would co-headline a show at Webster Hall on Friday July 6th as part of the CBGB Festival, my water almost broke. I didn't even bother to wait and see if BV could somehow sleaze my bald ass into that sucker; I toddled over to Ticketweb and did the right thing and ponied up for a ticket. Your man Klaus was PUMPED. However, as you may or may not know, your man Klaus is sort of a mess in the old mental-stability department and on the day of the show I had an attack of the old agoraphbees. And it wasn't because of what the show was; it could have been a show featuring Devendra Banhart fluffing pillows and I still would have succumbed to the agoraphobic explosion occurring in my brain. So rather than put myself in a loud, sweaty, crowded room I opted to stay home curled up in a ball in the middle of my living room floor. As a matter of fact, the ticket for the show is literally still sitting in my bag.

As it turns out, my attack of agoraphobia may have been more a prophecy than a sign of my own mental weakness. For, as you all must know by now, the show was called off when Harley Flanagan went on an alleged rampage of alleged self-defense (depending on who you talk to), that resulted in stab wounds and bite marks. What luck! So the show was cancelled and everyone had to go home. I've been wondering since then if Webster Hall, Ticketweb, or the event organizers would make up for the fact that nobody got to see the two bands that clearly everyone was there to see. And then, WHAM, the following message landed in my inbox today:

Thank you for your patience in waiting for this rescheduled date.
Sick of it All is psyched to announce the rescheduled date for the missed performance on July 6th.
On September 7th, we'll be joined by our good friends and New York Hardcore legends CIV(!!), at Webster Hall with very special guests.
Due to the unfortunate events that resulted in the postponement, the Cro-Mags will not be playing.

All tickets purchased for the July 6th show through Ticketweb will be changed into WILLCALL list tickets, which means your name will be on a list at the door, and you just bring your ID - not your original ticket. Previously purchased tickets will be handled this way to avoid issues with the many people that may not have their original ticket.

If you have already received a refund, you will NOT be on the willcall list and your barcode has been invalidated on your existing ticket.
New tickets will be on sale Thursday (August 9th) at 10am at Ticketweb.

If you are unable to attend and would like a refund, please email refunds@ticketweb.com - refund requests must be received prior to August 17th.

Got a question? We're here to help. Email us at thestudio@websterhall.com

I know Cro-Mags are basically hardcore legends, and I am sure I am going to get raked over the ever glowing comments coals for saying this, but I'd take CIV over them any day. So for me, even though no other bands have been announced on the line-up (Quicksand?) (Please?), this is already a more than adequate make up date. See ya there!

Whenever I have an argument with one of my pals, I generally invite them over and share in a robust hummus platter with them.

Quicksand or Gorilla Biscuits??

I liked CIV, but man if a band ever completely sold out, it was them. Wasn't one of their songs in a Doritos commercial or something?

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2012 2:24 PM

I agree with you. It's sad that people get all stabby over a band that really only had one good song (that 'we gotta know' thingy.) Every other NYHC band had more interesting songs than Cro-Mags. CIV is a step up.

"I am sure I am going to get raked over the ever glowing comments coals for saying this, but I'd take CIV over them any day."

Not by me. I'd take CIV over the Cro-Mags too. And yes, I'm awaiting what comes next what with the Quicksand date(s). Yes, buddies, it's possible to go for both hardcore and post-hardcore too.

Civ are hardcore legends?

They were more Alternative Nation than hardcore.

Civ and Rival Schools kind of destroyed the scene by turning into wannabe Pearl Jam dbags...

It's ok 2:56, 2:30 is a bloatedly pretentious fop, whose opinion is worth squat.

Looking forward to this one, especially with CIV!

haven't had this good of a laugh in hours. sounds like this person experienced his hardcore through MTV while on the couch in his frat house. hopefully he's just baiting us with his sarcasm or whatever the kids are doing with their spare time these days. i'd REALLY hate to think he actually MEANS this.

"I agree with you. It's sad that people get all stabby over a band that really only had one good song (that 'we gotta know' thingy.) Every other NYHC band had more interesting songs than Cro-Mags. CIV is a step up."

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2012 3:53 PM

Nope - that's me who made the comment, and I certainly didn't experience it through MTV. I'm guessing that I'm a little older than you and I never bought into the whole Cro-Mags deal. They objectively weren't very good. End of story. People liked their shows because kids would get really violent (read: stupid) and that's about it.

Will JWOWW be there?

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2012 4:03 PM

As a musician entering my late 30s, one of the few hardcore bands from my youth that actually still sounds musically interesting is Cro-Mags. The playing and songwriting on 'Age of Quarrel' is head and shoulders above the rest. Most other musicians I know feel the same way.

It's going to be a "blast".

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2012 4:13 PM

people need to get over Cro Mags... Yes, they did Age of Quarrel, but that's the only good thing they've done.
CIV is a good pop band. If you guys are good, they'll play you a sweet cover of a Duran Duran song.

If you are listening to this shit and you are over 18, you are a fucking moron. If you are "embarrassingly white-collar in (your) employment" you really need to get rid of the Underoos and Garanimals and grow the fuck up.

4:28's favourite band is Dirty Projectors, lives in Cobble Hill and teaches English at Nassau County Community College.

4:40 = Couldn't be further from the truth. Thanks for playing. Try again tomorrow.

4:45 = I'll do whatever the fuck I feel like, and there's not a damn thing you can do to stop me. How does it feel to be so powerless, tough guy?

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2012 4:55 PM

4:40: Sorry, but you're wrong. 4:28/4:55 is actually a trendy fop with gigantic thick-rimmed pink sunglasses, girly shorty-short shorts, horrible flip-flops and a shirt with a popped collar that covers his mouth to the point where his muffled "taunts" sound just like the muffled yelling from all the lockers he was stuffed in throughout high school. He hangs out at Fire island in his "spare" time.

4:45: Scared yet? Me neither.

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2012 4:59 PM

@3:59 Go listen to Age of Quarrel. Heavy as fuck and still sounds better than most shit out there today. How can you say they "weren't very good." Name some better NY hardcore bands. Musically Crumbsuckers were better but I can't think of too may others, just Bad Brains and they were originally from D.C.

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2012 5:07 PM

4:59: I'm no shrink, but that little post of yours is definitley hinting hidden anger issues. Just come out already.

The old trendie schtick of "everyone non-hipster = angry" never fails to deliver! Soon, I'll predict that the groundhog will come out on February 2!

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2012 5:12 PM

No not everyone, just you 4:59/5:12. You really need to face who you are and accept those feelings that you want to hide sooo badly (but literally EVERYONE ELSE can see). So, talking to you little bunny - COME THE FUCK OUT AND BE DONE WITH IT ALREADY

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2012 5:17 PM

Listen to the Cro-Mags demo- it's actually more musically interesting than all other music.

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2012 5:23 PM

Wow! 4:59 sure knows a lot about "fops" and "trendies" and what they do. I'm not yet licensed to dispense within the State of New York, but I can judge that you yourself are clearly one of these "fops" that you speak of. And, since I have read your posts all over this site for months and months I can also judge that you have a real need to try to convince others (read as: yourself) that you are somehow superior to those that you are deriding - which speaks to your shame and guilt from harboring self hatred. You are better off just accepting yourself and living at peace with others. Self hatred always ends in depression leading to a sad, bitter, lonely life.

4:40, that doesn't seem like a bad job to me?

4:55, curious, what is it, generally, that you do that being an english professor at NCC couldn't be further from the truth? Of all jobs out there, that one, that is the one that is the complete opposite of yours?

Anyway, carry on friends...

I'm glad I've been stalling on getting my refund. I was only going to the original show to see SOIA anyway, so no Cro-Mags = no problem for me.

@5:07 - I hear you. I just think that the Bad Brains worship always rubbed me the wrong way. Since Bad Brains did it 100 times better why not just listen to them instead?

Sorry to all the fighters on here that I posted an actual response to another actual response... so back to business - all you fuckin' gay ass trendies get the AIDS fuck out of herpesville and go back to ronconckoma (sp?)

Last time I saw Quicksand was when they played with Civ and Deldelion at Axis in Boston in 95 or 96. I wouldn't say that it's likely Quicksand will be on the line-up, but it wouldn't be a mis-match by any stretch.

5:33- What, you mean the kid who was a Taiwanese born White Supremacist who was also too stupid too realize, apparently, that there were two Jews in the band whose shirt he wore on his shooting rampage? Funny how the press never seemed to cover how SOIA did an Amnesty International benefit show a year later. I guess it didn't fit with the story line. You'd make a great member of the press, never let the truth get in the way of a good story.
