I can't see how this is gonna work. half the bands on the bill will be broken up by April.

Posted by dave | January 2, 2013 5:58 PM

The lineup on this thing is all right, but I'm really glad there aren't any embarrassing reunions on this bill

Punk festival? It's over 30 years too late!

Neo punk festivals are as stupid as jam band festivals, but with less chicks and worse drugs.

Doesnt look like theyre really going for a "headliner" vibe with this fest, but if you wanna talk about who plays on top, Rival Mob look like the Stones compared to the rest of the line-up. Couple of decent other bands, but nothing amazing so far.

hipster faggots will be out in full force. don't forget to order new back patches of obscure bands that broke up 10 years before you were born. bah.

he wants to be donkey punched
prior to getting pegged with the femur bone he keeps taped to his wrist for easy withdrawal
it's gotten lost up there before
and the bass player said he wouldn't help pull it out any more
won't all you true punx come support this band so that they can hire a roadie to do this dirty job for them?
I know you all know how bad it feels to have a femur bone stuck up inside you, with nobody to help pull it out.

Pretty sad if they can't get FEAR to reunite for this; at least give them some cash after stealing the festival name from one of their songs. Oh No!! Did I just let the cat out of the bag. Doh!

isnt it kind of funny how punks were originally the outcasts from the jocks and the football players?

here were are in 2013...brooklyn is filled with fakes who listen to weak ass music and still calling punk fans queers and fags.

good job message board...

12:15 Fear didn't break up. They played Europa a couple years ago.

They should at least try to get Cro Mags or Sick of It All or any of the usual suspects for this. Something to look forward to after getting screamed at for 10 hours.

Posted by Anonymous | January 3, 2013 10:39 AM

Ok, and when Cro-Mags or SOIA take the stage....people would STOP being screamed at? You make no sense.

12:15 it's sad you want to see Fear in 2013.

12:29 we live in a time when people consider Ceremony a hardcore band so no. No difference really.

having no equipments doesn't mean they are dead. If they are the bands on April, there is no new-punk cities in the world.
