Destruction Unit / Merchandise at Cheer Up Charlies, 6/1/2013
The third day of Chaos in Tejas (6/1) featured a killer late afternoon show at Cheer Up Charlies featuring bands from across the globe that dabbled in the outer reaches of punk. Featuring a headlining set from The Men, the outdoor show had fans sweating it out to the likes of Merchandise, Total Control, Destruction Unit, and Lower (their first US show). Pictures from Cheer Up Charlies are in this post.
As discussed on BrooklynVegan, 2013 will be our second year of Pedestrian Bridge shows (Narrows played last year)... but this time on BV and Chaos in Tejas will welcome Destruction Unit, Merchandise and Parquet Courts! This FREE, all-ages show kicks off at 2AM tonight, March 14th (technically 3/15 in the AM) on the Pedestrian Bridge (Lamar & Riverside).
