Skeletonwitch / Trash Talk / Vattnet Viskar
The Pitchfork Show No Mercy showcase on March 13th was one of several Vans shows at Mohawk that week, encompassing two stages of heavy music that ran the gamut from crusty hardcore to thrash to 70s-style hard rock to Pinkish Black's unclassifiable oddness (a compliment, if there ever was one). Featuring a headlining set from Skeletonwitch on the large large outdoor stage and local heroes Power Trip on the indoor, the show also had appearances from Trash Talk, Royal Thunder, Wetlungs, Pallbearer, Encrust, Mutilation Rites, Vattnet Viskar, Inter Arma, Batillus and more. A full set of pictures and full sets of video from both stages are below.
