Bloodiest @ Saint Vitus in Nov. (more by BBG)
Bloodiest

When music documentarian (((unartig))) was first asked about a year end contribution, his initial reflex was: "Sausage - Hummus - Hitler!", the first two clearly being worse than the third. But then a performance enhancing Hewlett-Packard printer got in the way and spat out the list of 10 bands, video shot (((unartig))) included, that is below...

Tombs @ Lovejoys
Tombs

After a day of mayhem and floorpunches with Ringworm on Friday (3/18), the BrooklynVegan/Profound Lore Records day show on Saturday at Lovejoys centered more on the metal side of things. The 3/19 show featured nine bands in total, of which four called the label home. The amazing Tombs headlined, and I couldn't help but feel a large share of local (NYC) pride since three of the nine bands call Brooklyn home (Tombs, Castevet, Batillus).

Altaar aren't content with coming all the way from Norway just to level Austin three times (an appearance at the BrooklynVegan/Profound Lore show at Lovejoys on 3/19, the Profound Lore Official Showcase, and the Chaos in Tejas/Stereogum/Sacred Bones show). The Norwegian doom destroyers have added TWO last minute NYC dates this weekend, and a Boston show to boot! Altaar will join fellow Norwegians Deathcrush to play the Acheron in on 3/12 with Occultation, and Silent Barn on 3/13 with Explosive Improvised Device. From there they head to O'Brien's in Allston, MA for a 3/14 show before continuing to Texas.

BUT FIRST: Sten Ove Toft aka TOFT from Altaar will play a solo show TONIGHT (3/11) on an impressive bill that look like this:

1st: TOFT
2nd: Man Forever Duo (mems. of Oneida/Lone Wolf)
3rd: Tall Firs
4th: Scarcity of Tanks
5th: Chris Grier & Gibby Haynes (Butthole Surfers) Duo
The DIY show happens at 345 Eldert St. #218 in Brooklyn (L to Halsey), AND NOT AT Psychotropa as originally planned (Doors - 8pm, Show - 9pm, $8).

Some video and flyers for Altaar's SXSW dates, are below.

BrooklynVegan/ProfoundLore Day Show

I am ecstatic to announce my partnership with the great Profound Lore Records for an Austin day party at Lovejoys (604 Neches St, right downtown) on March 19th! The free day show (lineup above) will run from noon-7pm and include Dark Castle, The Body, Deafheaven, Wolvhammer, Grayceon, Castevet, Batillus, Altaar from Norway (!), and the blasting NYC killers Tombs. Set times and more details are forthcoming but in the meantime save the date!

March 19th is the last of FOUR BV DAY PARTIES catering to fans of heavy music, including the previously discussed Full Metal Texas show on 3/17 at Emo's with Trap Them, Rwake, Hull, All Pigs Must Die, and the recently added Kvelertak! Details on March 16th and 18th are still to come.

Moments after the BrooklynVegan/ProfoundLore day party comes to a close, the official Profound Lore SXSW showcase will begin at Valhalla! That show kicks off at 7PM and will feature a headlining set from Slough Feg, as well as performances from KEN Mode, Castevet, Grayceon, Bruce Lamont, and Wolvhammer. Check out the incredible show poster below and get a screened copy of it at the show from the artist, Glyn Smyth of Scrawled Design.

Bruce Lamont plays Union Pool in Brooklyn on SUNDAY (2/27) with Lichens, Kevin Hufnagel & Cocaine & Abel. Union Pool will also host The Body TONIGHT (2/22) with Braveyoung & Elks.
