Underdog / crowdsurfer, Rev25 @ Irving Plaza, 10/11/2012
The first night of the Revelation Records 25th anniversary(10/11) featured a headlining appearance from Texas is The Reason (who played MHoW on Wednesday), along with sets from Underdog, Shades Apart, Gameface and On The Might Of Princes (who play a sold-out Saint Vitus tonight). Hardcore bands love their covers and the Revelation show was no different; Shades Apart covered "Tainted Love" by Soft Cell and Gameface covered the first few bars of "Wonderwall" by Oasis.
Pictures from the first night of the Irving Plaza celebration (none of OtMoP, sorry) adorn this post. Three of the five bands at Rev night one, namely Gameface, TitR and OtMoP, all took part in a free show on Wednesday night as well, with the latter two playing announced-last-minute/surprise sets at Saint Vitus (pics).
Later that night Acheron would host a headlining set from Chain of Strength, who are scheduled to play tonight (10/12) and Saturday (10/13) as part of the Rev25 celebration. Pictures of their appearance with Clear and Creem are HERE.
The celebration continues at Irving Plaza tonight with headliners Sick of it All, who will be joined by the aformentioned Chain Of Strength, plus Mouthpiece, Damnation AD and Popeye. Tickets are still available. Gear up for tonight's show by checking out more photos from Night One below.
