Rival Mob @ 285 Kent, 2/23/2013

It got a little incestuous at 285 Kent on Saturday (2/23), when Massachusetts band The Rival Mob played their record release show with special guests Stick Together, Give, Waste Management, WW4, Prisoner Abuse and Brain Slug (NY's Inside Out cancelled). Members of Rival Mob also serve in Prisoner Abuse and WW4 (with members of Floorpunch), while Waste Management contains members of some of Rival Mob's related projects, so it was definitely a show that kept it "family" for the duration.

Rival Mob's new LP Mob Justice is out now, and definitely worth a listen for fans of brutal, late 80s-style hardcore. More pics from the wild straight-edge show at 285 Kent are below.

5:59, keep sucking dick in the Glasslands bathroom, pal.

This show was too fuckin good. The venue stinks though. Literally.

Also that guy who jumped from the rafters is a dumbass. If youre gonna do it, don't chill for 30 seconds up there before you actually jump.

And to the dork who wrote the little description. This wasn't a straightedge show. How does BV manage to induce cringes even when it's such a brief description? Only one band on the bill is straightedge and actually makes a "thing" out of it.

u mad bro? so sorry to hear about your dad going all trannie and shit, but damn bro it ain't are fault he switched teams

I don't know, maybe the people with all the repressed sexual confusion and rage are the unoriginal jackasses who post sausage comments whenever there's a metal or hardcore post on here.

OK, so it's not the Glasslands bathroom. Sorry, Shea Stadium it is. I'm sure some twink at a Grimes show wants you to put it in his ass. Please oblige him.

As the inventor of the 'taint' and more recent 'someone's gonna get pregnant' memes, i have to agree with 8:52. I can't keep inventing new shit for you guys.

8:52 missed the day they covered "irony" in 10th grade

What's up with most photos from 285 being bright as daylight? Everytime I've been there is cave-like dark. Is this just an odd room to photograph?

842 & 852 You and all of these other pansies look like a bunch of idiots! Was there any women there? Oh yeah, why would you want women there?

The singer off WW4 looks to be in great shape. Did he not get the memo about no camo pants in the '00s?

As much as I hate this shit, half you nerds hating on it would get eaten alive in the pit of a show like this. Stick to your head bobbing please.

I wrote the comment at 848, and I had regularly attended HC shows up to turning 20. I have seen people get kicked unconscious in the pit, people loose teeth, once this chick was taken away in an ambulance. These clowns (bands and bros) would get their own asses beat senseless in an OG pit, and you sir are a tool for thinking you know everything. Flushing you away now .........

you guys would never last in a Duck Dynasty pit

so this what they call rock nowadays?

I'm 9:17, but I didn't sign on as xTAINTx, and I'm not 8:52, who probably hates me as well.

Posted by xTAINTx | February 27, 2013 9:17 AM

8:17: That, quite possibly, was the gayest thing I've ever read.

"In a OG pit?!!"

Go punch your self in the face.

Do the poorly drawn "X"'s on the back of the hands of all members of Stick Together signify they are old enough to enter, not old enough to drink?

that ginger fellow is a little too excited.

As much as I hate this shit, half you nerds hating on it would get anally raped in the pit of a show like this.

Is that Carl Gunhouse taking pictures?

Dude, Mark Porter looks unhealthy. He's hitting Chris Christie big.

9:58, difference is I don't go to Grimes posts or fuckin Grizzly Bear posts and bash on them for going to the shows or listening to the music. However, every metal and hardcore post has to be accompanied by the same generic comments that don't elicit any laughs. Come up with an original idea, and then when youre done, fuck your mother's wide-set vagina with a tire iron.

And for those keeping track, I'm 8:46 and 8:52.

As for the "OG pit" guy, aside from sprouts who act like they know everything about hardcore, "old school dudes" who do nothing but bitch about how today is nothing like the 80s, are annoying shitheads. Fine, you don't go to the shows anymore. Good for you, but don't act like shows today don't get insane.

Hi OG pit guy. I've been in the army and I've spent time in prison (not jail.) You are super-tough, I'm sure.

Posted by My Bodyguard | February 27, 2013 3:39 PM

when metal and hardcore stops being completely generic, we'll switch up the comments. sounds good, chief?

Posted by Anonymous | February 27, 2013 4:57 PM

yeah but what does the vocalist of king nine think?

Posted by Anonymous | February 27, 2013 5:27 PM

Right, but the thousands of faceless lo-fi shit bands that infest the festival circuit year-in, year-out: that's not generic? Ok, jerkoff.
