Blacklisted at Cake Shop in 2010 (more by Brian Reilly)

Boston hardcore traditionalists The Rival Mob, Philly boundary pushers Blacklisted, World War 4 (fronted by Mark Porter of NJHC band Floorpunch, plus other members of that band, The Rival Mob, and more), and Wilkes-Barre straightedge band Stick Together (whose lineup includes Ned Russin of Title Fight, plus members of War Hungry and Bad Seed) all played This Is Hardcore in Philly last year, and they'll soon team back up for what will be a very solid quadruple bill in NYC on June 7 at Le Poisson Rouge (co-presented by Hardcore Gig Volume and Noisey). Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Le Poisson Rouge still feels like a weird location for hardcore shows, but they do happen there. In fact, as previously discussed, two will happen there this month as part of the second annual New York's Alright (which Rival Mob played last year). This year's shows at LPR include Inmates, Anasazi, Omegas, Proxy, Warthog and Mercenary on 4/18 (tickets), and Infernoh, Crazy Spirit, Gas Rag, Wiccans, Stoic Violence, and Murderer on 4/19 (tickets). You can check out the lineups for other NY's Alright shows here.

Meanwhile, even sooner than that is Damaged City Fest in DC this weekend (4/11 & 4/12), which The Rival Mob also play, in addition to Infest, Los Crudos, Boston Strangler, Priests, Good Throb, Coke Bust and more.

And speaking of This Is Hardcore, the 2014 lineup for the Philly festival was recently announced, including Converge, Title Fight, Blacklisted, Bl'ast, Code Orange Kids, Nails, Full of Hell and many more. This year's fest happens from July 24-27 and tickets for that go on sale Saturday (4/12).

Converge also headline both nights of the inaugural Deathwish Fest which happens in Boston right before TIH (July 22 & 23), and also includes Blacklisted frontman George Hirsch's solo project Harm Wulf, plus Code Orange Kids, Modern Life Is War, Oathbreaker, Trap Them, Cult Leader, Self Defense Family, Doomriders and more. Tickets for that fest go on AmEx presale today (4/9) at noon with the general on-sale starting Friday (4/11) at noon.

I hope there's going to be dudes there! I want to be able to hug many men and call them bro and be sober and awkward and weird toward everyone! If I'm lucky I will get to rub my cock on a guy in the moshpit, which I will masturbate to later..pits are SO HOT, yummmm

Yay, they're all 'floorpunching' ... shit is so gay. At least when I went to shows they'd beat the shit out of each other. Way more fun to watch that this corny-ass unison dance. I feel like they should be wearing leotards.

sex is directly related to violence, and on is often used for the other when the other is not around - if only these closet cases were true to themselves this would be a gay orgy of monumental proportions - why dont butch gays come to these shows anyway? most of these kids are easily-molestable skinny vegans anyway, perfect for taking advantage of

The older I get the more weird I find the whole mosh 'really' close while you grope men. It does scream very, very homo-erotic.

I bet a psychiatrist would have a field day outing 95% of the dudes here.

^ agreed, but I started getting creeped out at around age 18.

Typical homophobic nonsense on here, just like any other time there is a hardcore or metal post. BV only polices the comments when it's in their interests.

I find it creepier that so many people pretend to be in Chvrches because the singer is cute.

You know damn well there are a bunch of closeted 'tough guys' moshing in that pit that are like: "Ohhhhhh yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, I'm feelin' this"
