Bold at Rev25, 2012 (more by Rebecca Reed)
In addition to playing Philadelphia’s This is Hardcore 2014 with ‘all of the bands’ (a scientific measurement), classic youth crew hardcore group Bold have scheduled a set at Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus on July 24 with Give and other openers to be announced (tickets). The lineup consists of Bold’s 1989 incarnation, featuring Matt Warnke (vocals), Tim Brooks (bass), Porcell (guitar), Tom Capone (guitar), and Drew Thomas (drums). Join with them, they have a plan.
In related news, Revelation Records reissued the compilation New York City Hardcore: The Way It Is. The 1988 collection documented NYHC at a crucial moment, rounding up the likes of Bold, Gorilla Biscuits, Breakdown, Youth of Today, Sick of it All, and others. The repress can be had on CD or gold vinyl and is available Tuesday (6/17).
Gorilla Biscuits also play a free House of Vans show in July with Bouncing Souls. RSVP for that is closed.
