Burn, Show Me the Body, The Bad Racket & more played Diablo Fest (pics)
Danny Diablo’s Diablo Fest went down on Sunday (9/3) at Brooklyn Night Bazaar with a stacked lineup of hardcore punk, rap, and a few bands that mix both. The headliners were NYHC vets Burn, whose first-ever full length Do or Die comes out this week (9/8) via Deathwish, 27 years after the release of their self-titled debut EP.
The lineup also included Show Me the Body, Non Phixion’s Goretex, Ninjasonik, Ache, Man Without Plan, Black Punk, and the live debut of The Bad Racket, a new band with Adam McLeer (aka ADM aka Ad Money) of Lordz of Brooklyn, who continue in the style of LOB. The Bad Racket have been posting studio updates on Instagram since December and some clips have surfaced, but this show looks like it was their real introduction. They played in masks and had a ton of people on stage, and things got pretty crazy. You can check out some videos below. One attendee wrote, “Finally got to check out The Bad Racket.. that was wild! Old school Lords of Brooklyn Style Dog Eat Dog 90’s era with not one but THREE guitars!”
