The second annual NYC punk/hardcore festival New York's Alright went down last month (April) with shows at various venues, including the recently-opened Bushwick venue The Wick, which we're highlighting today. We also just posted pictures from their April Unsound show.

We caught both NY's Alright shows at The Wick, including 4/17 with Dawn of Humans, Contingent, Blotter, Asile and Goosebumps: and 4/20 with Hank Wood & the Hammerheads, Die, Savageheads, The Impalers and Razorheads. A set of pictures from both of those days are in this post.

unARTig was there too, and got videos of many bands at the festival, including Lumpy and the Dumpers at 538 Johnson on 4/19 which resulted in the slow-downed 11-second viral video of a boy in the audience getting hit by fireworks. Check out The Dumpers' full set, the fireworks meme, and more pics from The Wick, below...

Really, that video was "amazing"!?!?

Every time I see a video or picture that isn't deliberate porn and shows the true face of "average," I feel very blessed to know that I'm not.

Nice photo filter. Really authentic feel. Your parents must be happy with all the money they spent on your SVA degree.

What is the deal with the nudity anyway?

You SERIOUSLY named a festival after a gay-bashing song by fear? Seriously?

1:00 you are seriously questioning the logic / homoerotic fixation behaviors of this motley group of inbred kidults?

Asile didn't that that night... you should probably get your info correct.

12:07 you think an idiot flopping around naked in a pit is rape?

it's obvious from that comment you over-react too much to live on this planet with the rest of us. you hyper-sensitive ninny.

Can someone caption the second picture, please? I'm trying to figure out what's going on there.

Everyone's always trying to be OG about hardcore, but this shit never changes. Besides a handful of classic bands, it's always been a bunch of angry white boys too awkward to play sports or have girlfriends.

^ "it's always been a bunch of angry white boys too awkward to play sports or have girlfriends."

Sounds gay.

- photos taken with Contax T2 using Fuji 160c and Fuji Superia 800. Easy being an asshole on the internet, isn't it?

Who is in this photo? http://www.brooklynvegan.com/img/cl/newyorkisalright/2014/10.jpg I've been trying to figure out who this musician/band is since I saw them perform. Please tell me!

Also, great pictures! I wish I had gone to the first show as well but the second show was the best one I've ever been to.
