Lightning Bolt at Brooklyn Bowl (more by Leia Jospe)
Lightning Bolt

Tickets are "going fast" for the 4/27 Lightning Bolt show that was announced at Club Exit in Greenpoint but will actually go down at 285 Kent Ave (where Todd P says it actually always was). Head down to Record Grouch Records to get your tickets before they disappear. The show will feature support from Humanbeast, DOGLEATHER, and 80's Hardcore.

Tickets are also still available for Lightning Bolt's appearance at Le Poisson Rouge the next day (4/28) with Pterodactyl.

All remaining Lightning Bolt dates, and some videos, including footage from their recent set at Coachella, below.

Fucked Up
Pissed Jeans

The show kicked off with '80s Hardcore, which plays exactly that. The band opened with a cover of Minor Threat's "Straight Edge" and burned through a set that came to a frenzied head with Black Flag's classic "Wasted." Cover bands don't normally do it for me, but I was won over by the excellent song choices and infectious gusto of the band...

...Pissed Jeans took the stage in a mess of flash photography and wall punching. The band ripped through a set that brought to mind the great Arab on Radar/Locust tour of '99--everyone was spazzing just cause it felt so good. I'd be hard pressed to name a band today that puts on a better show ("This looks like the end of the world," a genteel friend of mine commented. "I love it.") or whips the audience into more of a frenzy. People were standing on amps! People were diving through the air! Pissed Jeans makes the sort of music that turns good kids bad. [NY Press]

We already posted Andrew Frisicano's take on Fucked Up's set. Pictures from the whole show below...

80s Hardcore

80s Hardcore bill themselves as "The World's First and Only 80s Hardcore Cover Band", and although their MySpace doesn't list any of the members, we do know that the masked man is Vice co-founder Gavin McInnes, who if you didn't know last week, you may have learned about in that recent "hipster" "news" video.

80s Hardcore is playing a free show at Cake Shop tonight/Friday (which means there are at least two reasons to go to Cake Shop today). What songs do I think they will play? Funny you should ask because their entire planned setlist, along with the flyer and a video, is below...
