Greys at Shea in 2013 (more by Vladislav Grach)
Greys

Toronto punks Greys, who have a killer EP and an even more killer live show, will be returning to the US for SXSW (where they'll play the Carpark showcase, Exploding In Sound showcase, and others), and they've got other dates including NYC shows before and after. The first is at Death by Audio on Sunday (3/2) with two fellow Toronto punk bands HSY and The Beverleys, and the second is at Shea Stadium on March 21 with Baltimore grunge lovers Roomrunner, Brooklyn post-hardcore rippers Big Ups, and Boston indie rockers Kal Marks. Advance tickets for the Shea show are on sale now, no advance tix for DbA. All Greys dates are listed below.

UPDATE: Sunday's Greys/HSY/The Beverleys show was cancelled due to Greys' van breaking down, but all three bands are looking to reschedule for April or May. Stay tuned.

The Beverleys
Beverleys

Readers of this site should be familiar with all the bands on those bills, but we've never had a chance to talk about The Beverleys. Like so many other Canadian punk bands we've been hearing lately, this trio absolutely rips. Less on the noisy/heavy side than Greys and HSY who they share that DbA bill with, The Beverleys have more elements of dark '80s post-punk and grungy '90s rock, and the sneering vocals are pushed to the forefront, which only gives them more attitude. They have other dates with HSY, all of which are listed, with a stream of their 3-song EP, below.

I dont think so this band is not rock! I think they have the best style of music which others never noticed that much.

Not very punk rock to cancel a show because your van broke down. Get on a train or a bus or steal a van. Whatever it takes.
