Texas is the Reason at Rev 25 NYC (more by Toby Tenebaum)
Texas is the Reason

As mentioned, Chicago is getting Revelation Records 25th anniversary shows too. On January 4 we'll get NYC hardcore heroes Gorilla Biscuits (one of the early projects of the prolific Walter Schreifels) and Ray Cappo's Hare Krishna-core band Shelter. Then on January 5 it's Gorilla Biscuits again, this time with Youth of Today, which Cappo fronted before forming Shelter. Walter Schreifels also spent some time in Youth of Today (and the two bands have a long running relationship) so some on stage collaboration at that show is not out of the question.

Finally, on January 6, it's more of an emo/post-hardcore oriented lineup with vets Texas is the Reason, Into Another, Sense Field, and Popeye. Tickets for all three shows go on sale today (11/9) at noon.
