Pig Destroyer @ Saint Vitus -- 1/11/13

Our latest BrooklynVegan (and Invisible Oranges)-curated installment of Red Bull Sound Select went down at Saint Vitus on Saturday night (1/11) with Pig Destroyer, Dysrhythmia, Trenchgrinder and Mother Brain, hosted by Dave Hill. Steady rain in the late afternoon and early evening didn't keep Saint Vitus from filling up almost immediately, and the bands raged just as hard as we expected. From our IO writeup:

Mother Brain's new two-man format only intensifies the lean mayhem of their live delivery. Trenchgrinder have an Asphyx-esque gift for making their one-guitar death metal sound bigger than most bands with two axes can. Dysrhythmia are the most impossibly tight live metal act in New York City, which says something given the number of shred-inclined bands based here. And Pig Destroyer were Pig Destroyer, if a bit thicker and heavier for the addition of John Jarvis on bass. People go wild for that band, and for good reason. Opening with "Hymn" from the Benümb split: awesome curveball.
Photos and full-set vids of every band (Dave Hill's taint-filled intros included) are in this post. Thanks to everyone who came out; hopefully you had just as much fun as we did.

NYC Red Bull Sound Select shows happen every month and this year are curated by either BrooklynVegan, Afropunk, or Giant Step. The same happens in other cities, like the upcoming Earthless, Destruction Unit, Yakuza & Running show in Chicago. Stay tuned for our next BV one which is coming in April.

More pictures, videos and another look at the El Jefe-designed poster, below (and some really big versions of the photos at the BV Facebook too)...

This show was a lot of fun. And there were actually a lot of women there.

^ What about the over-under on how many trannies you encountered the other night at Glasslands, thinking they were "women"?

I'll say 12.
