Bellicose Minds playing NYC at WIERD before Varning Festival in Montreal
by Fred Pessaro // BBG
Portland’s deathrock/gothic post-punk band Bellicose Minds are on their way up to Montreal for the punk festival Varning (more on that in a sec), but will spend their Halloween in NYC. Joining DJs Gabby, Caleb and Pre Op Trans, look for Bellicose Minds to hit Home Sweet Home on 10/31 as part of the weekly WIERD party and their first visit to NYC.
For the unfamiliar, Montreal’s Varning Festival (11/1 – 11/3) goes down at Katacombes. Featuring punk rock in many different incarnations, the fest will feature appearances from Zyanose, Belgrado (Spain), Hank Wood and the Hammerheads, Spectres, Aspects of War, Zatsuon, Sad Boys and many more, including the final Peligro Social show. Full lineup is below.
Speaking of, as discussed, Japanese noise-punks Zyanose play Acheron on 11/10. Spectres and Crimson Scarlet, who also bless the Varning lineup, both play Acheron on Friday (10/26).
And in related news, NYC’s Sad Boys have joined on to a bill with Perdition, Austin’s Criaturas, Bortgang, Spine, and La Misma at 177 Stockholm tomorrow (10/25). Should be a fun night of raging punk.
Tonight (10/24), meanwhile, look for WIERD to host the great gothic synth-pop of Martial Canterel.
