Freshkills on a Rocks Off Boat Cruise (more by Keith Marlowe)
Freshkills

"See you in hell, world." - Freshkills

And with that statement, post-punk favorites and BV-SXSW veterans Freshkills are throwing in the towel. No acrimony or malice though, so help send the Brooklyn band into the sunset with one final party on Friday (3/1) at Union Pool. Violent Bullshit and Chron Turbine will play support and $8 gets you in at the door.

Chron Turbine also features members of Rye Coalition, who will play with The Sonics at the upcoming Norton Records benefit on April 13 at Bell House (tickets). Members of Rye Coaltion will also play as part of the upcoming Merel reunion at Grand Victory on April 5 which ALSO features Freshkills vocalist Zachary Lipez behind the wheels (tickets). Oh what a tangled web...

RIP Freshkills. Check out some tracks from the band below to salute them one last time.

I've played with these guys. Good songs, boring musicians, not very nice people.

Rejecting innocuous comments on stories about bands you carry a torch for and no one cares about? Professional.

"I've played with these guys."

Meaning what...you've been in bands that have played shows with them...or you've actually been a member of the band? Clarity needed, since your statement is kinda nasty.

at least these middle age rock stars wannabes have the good sense to call it quits.

Only on this site does 30s mean middle aged.

I'd check 'em out.

Poor bastards. Their last show and half of this is about ex members of Rye Coalition.

"post-punk favorites"

Favorites? Um, no. By who?

Maybe if the singer stopped trying to imitate Peter Murphy.

Rye Coalition did call it quits. They all play in about eight different bands now. They only get together for the rare one-off these days.

i've never seen Freshkills put on a bad show, and people that talk shit anonymously are so fucking lame it's pathetic. I'm ashamed for you. There's nothing worse than a coward.

"Are they gonna hurt us Walter?"
"No Donny. These men are cowards."

That's you, dipshits. I'ma put a bowling ball in your guts and bite off your ear.

While it is difficult to profile the typical Brooklyn Vegan commenter due to their steadfast use of the Cloak of Invisibility (tm), I can say I once had a roommate who was a prolific BV commenter and this is what I know about him:

1 - He kept bound volumes of the upskirt photos he took at Motor City Bar between 2004 and 2006.

2 - His mother terminated at least one pregnancy preceding and another subsequent to his birth.

3 - He really really liked Gorilla Coffee.

All haters can meet me in the octagon for a toe to toe battle royale. Only one victor shall prevail...

Not the best nor worst band ever. Takes balls to get onstage and share your music- even if its mediocre at least its courageous.
let em do out with a bang. or fizz.
