Power Trip @ Saint Vitus - 1/15/14
Power Trip

Things really got in full swing when Jersey hardcore act Suburban Scum took the stage, as every element of an East Coast hardcore band that you have come to expect, including (but not limited to) triggered breakdowns, yelled vocals, and the practically mandatory head-nodding of every swaying audience member couldn't help but put a smile on my face. As one friend told me as we watched: "This is almost TOO ignorant!" But really, what's wrong with that?

By the time Power Trip took the stage, things were definitely hyphy, and after a short intro they immediately ripped into a few tracks from their destructive first full length, Manifest Decimation. Broken guitar strings did give the set a few occasions of unneeded pause (Riley Gale should up his stage banter game), but once they found a rhythm, this set slid by all too fast.

Up-and-coming Texan crossover revivalists Power Trip brought their tour to NYC for a show at Saint Vitus on Wednesday (1/15), which they managed to sell out at the door thanks to help from Suburban Scum's NJ moshcore, Manipulate, and White Widows Pact. The above quote is an excerpt from our review over at Invisible Oranges, where you can also check out some pictures of the show. More pictures, and a video of Power Trip's set are in this post.

I agree, 3:30. Those guys get on all sorts of good shows because of their trust-fund singer. All of his bands suck.
