Fake Names (mem Refused, Minor Threat, Embrace) playing first show ever in NYC

Fake Names Hammered Hulls

Punk supergroup(s) alert. We just mentioned that new-ish band Hammered Hulls (ft. Alec MacKaye of The Untouchables/The Faith/etc, Mary Timony of Helium/Ex Hex, etc, and more) would be playing some shows with SAVAK (who have been around but also feature a pretty super lineup), and the Brooklyn show is also with an even newer band, Fake Names, whose lineup includes Brian Baker (Minor Threat, Dag Nasty, Bad Religion), Refused frontman Dennis Lyxzén, Michael Hampton (S.O.A., Embrace, One Last Wish), Matt Schulz (who’s also in SAVAK and was in Enon and other bands), and Johnny Temple (Girls Against Boys, Soulside). They don’t have any music out yet, and this will be their very first show. It happens January 10 at Union Pool. Tickets are on sale.

Brian Baker also started another punk supergroup this year, Beach Rats (with members of Lifetime and The Bouncing Souls), who released their killer debut EP Wasting Time back in July. Bad Religion have a new record coming next year too.

Refused recently announced a tour with The Hives.
