What are you doing on January 11, 2014? What's that? You can't plan things that far in advance? Welp, you have a plan now: Pig Destroyer, Dysrhythmia, Trenchgrinder and Mother Brain are playing a BrooklynVegan/Invisible Oranges-curated Red Bull Sound Select show at Saint Vitus. The very funny Dave Hill is hosting. Entrance will be $3 with an RSVP or $10 at the door otherwise (no advanced tickets). There is a 100% chance that it will be an utter shit show.

Pig Destroyer fully deserve their reputation as modern grindcore's most vital band; this show will mark their first NYC appearance with new (and first-ever!) bassist Scott Jarvis in the lineup. Dysrhythmia, who may well put on the most thrilling live show of any New York metal band, will put in a breather set (kinda, sorta, not really) between Kevin Hufnagel and Colin Marston's touring duties with Gorguts, whose Colored Sands is deservedly among the most acclaimed metal albums of 2013. Fellow locals Trenchgrinder and Mother Brain will deliver dirty death metal and maniacal grind, respectively -- both bands work hard and shred harder.

This is the first IO-curated Red Bull Sound Select show, but it's the third BV-curated one overall; our previous installments included Bouncing Souls/Brian Fallon/Aye Nako/Nude Beach and Foxygen/Amen Dunes/LODRO/Prince Rupert's Drops.

I seriously could not be more stoked about this lineup. Clear your calendars and stream music by all four bands below.
