Chaos in Tejas

Chaos in Tejas is much more than just a series of punk, crust and metal bands. Case in point, DIIV, who headlined Mohawk on Thursday (May 30) as part of the first night of the festival with guests Deep Time, Survive, Phantom Lakes and ((Pressures)). Pictures from Mohawk are in this post. That same night, The Damned / The Marked Men played the 1100 Warehouse and The UV Race played Red 7.

In addition, you can catch up with some of the punk/metal happenings at InvisibleOranges. Check out pictures from Day 1, Day 2, Day 3 and Day 4, featuring names like Infest, Bolt Thrower, Framtid and more.
