"Towards the end of Friday night's Suicidal Tendencies concert at the 9:30 Club, lead singer Mike Muir brought the band's photographer on stage to share his experiences in DC earlier in the day. The photographer introduced as "Luke from Australia" is in the United States for the first time while video-taping ST's tour. Their DC tour stop gave Luke the opportunity to do some sight seeing earlier in the day. One of his stops was the White House; where he was briefly detained and questioned by security; for taking pictures while wearing a Suicidal Tendencies t-shirt and having an accent.Suicidal Tendencies headlined Terminal 5 in NYC last night, Monday (11/14), with classic hardcore veterans Cro-Mags and Underdog, as well as beatdown-core Boston thugs Death Before Dishonor. ST are back in business after 10+ years away, and are currently touring the US as part of the No Mercy Fool!/The Suicidal Family tour which hit Fun Fun Fun Fest in early November. That tour concludes on Sunday (11/21) in Albuquerque.
During the show, Muir asked Luke to relate his tale to the audience before the band launched into their controversial 80's hardcore song "I Shot The Devil" better known as "I Shot Reagan". It was a classic punk rock move and a reminder of a time when the nation had bigger things to worry about than Al-Qaeda; like swear words in music, the failure of New Coke, and mutually assured destruction." [We Love DC]
For those of you who are fans of the ST offshoot Infectious Grooves, the band is playing their first US show in ten years at House of Blues in LA on November 23rd (tickets). No word on if it'll lead to other shows.
More pictures from Terminal 5 including one of the setlist (with some other setlists from recent shows typed out), and the rest of the ST dates, below.
Agnostic Front @ The Bell House in March (more by Tod Seelie)
The previously-mentioned Agnostic Front / Mother of Mercy /
New Lions / New Lows Product of Waste show taking place at Santos Party House on October 16th will be the end of a 2+ week tour for the three bands that kicks off September 30th at Popeye's Pub in Peekskill, NY. Tickets for the NYC date are still on sale.
Tickets are also now on sale for another upcoming NYHC show, one happening in pretty much the biggest venue possible for a hardcore show. I'm talking about November 14th at Terminal 5 when The Cro-Mags and Underdog open for Suicidal Tendencies who are playing the show as part of a larger tour. By the way, Cro-Mags are now being billed as "Cro-Mags" and not "Cro-Mags NYC" as they were at first. Drama.
Agnostic Front dates below...
The ST Army, 2010...
Suicidal Tendencies are touring in October and November. And in what will undoubtedly be an absolute mosh-stravaganza, they'll play Terminal 5 in NYC with Cro-Mags NYC (yes, the John Joseph version) and Underdog on November 14th. Tickets go on sale Friday 9/24 at noon, but are on American Express presale Wednesday (9/22) at 11AM. For the curious, Suicidal Tendencies 2010 is:
Mike Muir - vocals (1981-present)Suicidal Tendencies recently released No Mercy Fool!/The Suicidal Family, a new LP featuring re-recordings of songs by ST-related project No Mercy, as well as Join The Army. Their tour dates also include Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin. All dates are listed below.

Murphy's Law on a Rocks Off boat in 2004 (more)
Rocks Off reports...
"It's with regret that due to unforeseen circumstances (aka pressure from local authorities who unfoundedly seem to think that our planned show will be a magnet for "violence"), tonights' Murphy's Law show has had to be cancelled. We appreciate it's very late in the day, however all tickets purchased through Ticketweb will automatically be refunded in full. If you bought from a physical outlet you will need to go there for a refund, We apologise for the short notice. We at Rocks Off were really looking forward to this show, as well as last night's Cro Mags show that we also were forced to cancel, and hope we can find a way to make it up to you all soon." [Rocks Off]That Murphy's Law show, which was unfairly cancelled, was scheduled for tonight (8/12) (
Last night's cancellation was also a last minute surprise for the hundreds of people that planned on checking out, and undoubtedly having a safe time with, the Cro-Mags on a boat. The band, probably John Joseph, posted the following to Facebook afterwards:
"Scumbag rich fux in NYCNo, the Cro-Mags weren't predicting the future. The Murphy's Law show that the Cro-Mags are referring to happened four years ago (they play a boat almost every year). A fight at that show caused the boat owners to get a little worried at the time, but things smoothed over shortly afterward and there was never a problem before or after that (not counting a drunken incident on a Van Halen tribute boat cruise).
who don't want their chump rich people to have to go to their yacht
past our crew, greased the cops and had our show canceled. Well, the
fact that assholes didn't know how to act at the Murphy's Law boat show,
or the hip hop idiots stabbing people didnt help either! SORRY
...EVERYONE - see you in Philly Saturday"
So why the trouble all of a sudden? And what "hip hop idiots stabbing people" do the Cro-Mags mean? Well, apparently about a month ago there was a stabbing AFTER a boat cruise near the West Side Highway. It wasn't a Rocks Off boat, but it was violence happening in Manhattan that was at least in a small part related to entertainment on a boat. That caused cops to be on alert, and Rocks Off felt it hard when about a zillion cops showed up to their Peter Rosenberg Birthday Bash on July 21st (he's a Hot 97 DJ). The birthday party, which was a Pete Rock & DJ Premier show, left the dock an hour late after cops reportedly boarded and looked around. The boat was then tailed by police who were also waiting for the boat when it got back to shore. Nobody was arrested or making any trouble though (except the cops!).
Now this. No other boats are affected at the moment (like Tao Seeger tonight for instance). Hopefully no more are either.
UPDATE, GOOD NEWS:
!! VENUE CHANGE !!UPDATE 2, BAD NEWS: Despite the announcement about the show moving being real, the venue is not confirming this show. They said they knew about a Murphy's Law afterparty, but not a performance. Stay tuned.
The Murphys Law | Jimmy G's B-Day show tonight is
NOTCANCELED but is relocated to a new venue!!! The annual boat trip was canceled and this great yearly event is now happening at Brauer Falls located at 245 Grand St in Brooklyn (across the street from Trash Bar) at 10pm.
Please spread the word and join the party!!!
UPDATE 3: Murphy's Law not playing Bruar Falls. See comments.
Cro-Mags at Santos (more by Paul Birman)
In a show that could possibly rival the infamous Eyehategod-on-a-boat rager from October of last year, NYC hardcore greats Cro-Mags will play the Temptress on August 11th. Tickets are on sale. Bets are on as to how many people will attempt to dive off of the top floor into the crowd below.
The next day (8/12), the rage continues as Murphy's Law will play the Temptress as part of Jimmy Gestapo's "annual birthday bash". Tickets are still on sale. Murphy's Law have a DVD and a pair of new LPs on the way, a covers LP and an album of new material. The band will also reissue previous releases on vinyl via I Scream Records.
Full Murphy's Law dates and some video is below...
Starkweather at ABC No Rio
This Is Hardcore Fest 2010 details are officially in the open, and the three day Philly festival will feature appearances from Sheer Terror, Ink & Dagger (with Geoff Rickly of Thursday filling in on vocals), Kid Dynamite, Cro-Mags, Nails, Ringworm, Starkweather, Trapped Under Ice, Seraphim, and many others. The full list is below. Tickets are on sale for the full weekend, or each individual day (Fri, Sat) though Sunday (with Kid Dynamite and Ink & Dagger) is sold out.
One of the This is Hardcore bands, Starkweather, played ABC No Rio on Saturday (May 29) with Rosetta and Shell Shock, one of TWO Rosetta shows for the weekend (the second was the BV/1000 Knives production with Ken Mode). I ducked out before the headliner Shell Shock, and missed a good portion of Rosetta's set due to beverage consumption across the street, but Starkweather were as good (better?) than I had remembered, playing a mix of metal and hardcore all anchored by vocalist weighty and powerful Rennie Resmini's voice. The band's material from their new LP This Sheltering Night sounded fantastic live as well (cop that). More pictures from their appearance are below.
Another This is Hardcore band, Seraphim, is also on board to play SATURDAY at Cake Shop alongside Altered State, Voyager, and Monolith as part of a BV/1000 Knives/Science of Silence production. The show kicks off at 5PM!
Some pics and video of Starkweather at ABC No Rio, and the full This is Hardcore fest lineup are below...

"Andrew WK was at the cro-mags show tonight. he stage dove and moshed. and he fist pumped dan and i. my year is now complete." - MariannaArutyunyants
"The Age of Quarrel is the first album from the New York hardcore band Cro-Mags. It was released on Profile Records in 1986 and subsequently re-released by Another Planet in 1994, along with their second album, 1989's Best Wishes, on the same disc. The video for "We Gotta Know" received airplay on MTV at the time (during their heavy metal specialty show), and was one of the first-ever clips on MTV to feature slam dancing and crowd surfing." [Wikipedia]Andrew WK is also part owner of the venue that the Cro-Mags (the John Joseph version previously known as Cro-Mags jam) played in last night (12/29). More pictures from the show, multiple bloody noses and the setlist included, below...
Cro-Mags at Fun Fun Fun Fest 2008 (more by Tyler Nutter)
Cro-Mags (I guess they dropped the "Jam") will make their return to NYC on Dec 29th, almost exactly a year from one of the last times they played NYC. Tickets are on sale for the show at Santos which will feature RazorBlade HandGrenade "and more TBA".
Vocalist John Joseph is gearing up to release his second book, Meat is for Pussies, due soon via Punkhouse. In addition, look for John Joseph to become a reality TV star:
"Since the publication of Evolution, I've been getting some interesting offers for projects and have been able to develop some ideas. One of those ideas is a reality show where they place troubled kids in a house with me and I try and help them with the lessons I learned when I was in their shoes. A pretty big producer is involved so we'll see what happens." Joseph revealed. "Next week I will be speaking at a high school in Bushwick, Brooklyn to at risk kids who've been arrested and are in, or thinking about joining gangs. It's my way of paying forward the gifts I've received."An old video and a couple of interviews with John Joseph (including an old one from MTV!) is below.

You should see his Vampire Weekend tattoo!
The Black And Blue Bowl (aka Superbowl of Hardcore) is back at Studio B in 2009, with a lineup heavy on reunited and classic hardcore bands and headlined by the recently reunited Earth Crisis who, for my money, peaked with the line "A FIRESTORM TO PURIFYYYYYYYYYYYY!". Beware, similar to the previous statement, the following announcement CONTAINS LOTS OF CAPITAL LETTERING:

Kevin Seconds @ Fun Fun Fun Fest 2008 (more by Kyle Dean Reinford)
Kevin Seconds is hitting the road. Not literally, because that might bloody his knuckles, but the folkin' punk rock legend will tour the seabaring portions of these United States (the east/west coasts) starting Jan 31st and concluding in late February including THREE NYC shows and one on Long Island! The Long Island show (TBA) takes place on Feb 17th with ex-Groovie Ghoulies frontman Kepi Ghoulie. The two then continue on Feb 18th with a double header....a FREE daytime in-store at Generation records with KS & KG followed by a show that night at Pianos. The next night, Feb 19th, the pair take on Europa (tix here). Full tour dates are below.
...And speaking of punk frontmen who recently played Fun Fun Fun Fest, John Joseph and his Cro-Mags (Jam) have scheduled a show of their own at Europa on March 29th with Maximum Penalty and Dump Body. Tickets are on sale.
...And while we're on the subject of NYHC legends who played Fun Fun Fun Fest, Bad Brains are the subject of a new upcoming documentary! Details are sketchy at best, including the title of the film, but their myspace page professes that the film is "currently in post production" and "follows the music and the life of the Bad Brains from 1979 to present day". Film trailer below.
Bad Brains print by Shepard Fairey
Meanwhile, wheat-paste-ninja-turned-media-mogul-turned-Obama-Campaign-poster-designer Shepard Fairey will release a limited edition silk screening of the band on his website "in a few weeks". It's a collaboration with the mighty Glen E Friedman, check it out above.... pretty much rules.
Oh, and did we mention Daryl Jennifer of Bad Brains has a solo album due this spring?!? Details are sketchy, but as they arise, we'll post 'em.
We didn't catch the show, but HR recently appeared on the bill of an Inauguration show at Le Poisson Rouge here in NYC. How was that one?. The Bad Brains only upcoming date is at the Langerado Fest in Florida on Friday March 6th.
Documentary trailer & tour dates below...
Akron/Family played the final song at the Knitting Factory (Josh Haner/The NY Times)
"It was a particularly cacophonous performance of "Auld Lang Syne." But for the Knitting Factory's last night in Manhattan, it was appropriate, as the shaggy avant-folk group Akron/Family led a version of the Scots New Year's hymn on Wednesday night that mutated from a simple singalong to screeching feedback to a meditative one-note drone." [NY TIMES]The NYC club is closed, but that's not the last of "Knitting Factory". In addition to the locations in Hollywood, Boise and Spokane that are still open, Knitting Factory Brooklyn is supposedly opening in March. Knitting Factory is also currently promoting/presenting some shows at The Studio @ Webster Hall - two at least:
- Jan 09 - Bear Hands, Holy Hail, Atarah Valentine & Statehood
- Jan 24 - Oxford Collapse, Suckers & Real Estate
Leonard Street, 3-floor location, RIP.

Cro-Mags (jam) @ Fun Fun Fun Fest (more by Tyler Nutter)
Knitting Factory closes its Tribeca location for good on New Years Eve. I think that's one of the reasons so many good shows are starting to pop up there, one of which is the Anticon anniversary party on December 18th, and another of which is the Cro-Mags (jam) show happening in the main space of the club on December 28th...
Rocks Off Presents The Cro-Mags featuring John Joseph, Mackie, AJ from Leeway & Craig from Sick Of It All plus special guests Wisdom in Chains, Trapped Under Ice & more TBA!That's the same Cro-Mags lineup I just saw in Austin.

"Cro-Mags (jam)" were great, and a huge hit, at Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin on Sunday, November 9th. They played to a massive, enthusiastic crowd. Who knew there were so many hardcore fans, in Texas, and in Texas and willing to to go see bands at an outdoor festival? I'm sure it helped that the bill also included Bad Brains, not to mention Bouncing Souls, Integrity, and DOA.
As previously posted, the difference between Cro-Mags and Cro-Mags (jam) is that the "jam" version is John Joseph with a mostly new Cro-Mags band that doesn't include Harley Flanagan or Parris Mayhew. And, as previously mentioned, the "jam" band at Fun Fun Fun Fest consisted of an impressive lineup of hardcore alumni. They were John Joseph, AJ from Leeway on guitar, Craig Setari of Sick of it All on bass, and Mackie Jayson (one of Cro-Mags' past drummers and a former member of a million other bands, and currently in Madball) on drums. Collectively they ripped through at least 14 songs that mostly came from the Cro-Mags' 1986 debut album The Age of Quarrel and also included a cover of Wire's "12xU". Lots of people were going nuts. Lots of people knew all the words. Lots of people were slam-dancing, and I think there were more (and more experienced) stage-divers than during any other band's set at the fest.
John Joseph was on a roll with his between-song banter as well. He gave shout-outs to lots of other bands on the bill including Walter and Sammie of Rival Schools, and, of course, Bad Brains who John was also later seen watching from the stage. John also spoke about the government, about living with Ian Mackaye and Henry Rollins after he went AWOL from the military, asked what happened to punk and hardcore meaning something, said 9/11 was an inside job, and found it symbolic that the stage was clearly facing the lit-up Texas State Capitol building that happens to be located in Austin.
More pictures, the setlist, and some videos below...

If not obvious by the 2008 Fun Fun Fun Fest coverage so far, I was having the most fun (fun fun) over the weekend with all the punk, metal and hardcore on stages 3a and 3b (two connected stages to avoid long times between sets). Highlights and pictures from day one are HERE. Highlights of day two (9/9) were DOA, Frightened Rabbit, the ska punk, politics and crowd of Leftover Crack, Cro-Mags (jam) (John Joseph w/ one of Cro-Mags' past drummers, AJ from Leeway on guitar and Craig Setari of Sick of it All on bass), what I saw of St. Vincent and Black Angels, the vegan sausage pizza, and Bad Brains. I managed to catch a few songs of Islands who sounded great, but totally missed Spinto Band and Annuals. Also saw pieces of Kevin Seconds, Chuck Ragan, and Ben Nichols's solo-frontmen sets. Saw Black Joe Lewis and most of Trash Talk, but neither lived up to my expectations in the daytime festival setting. I went back and forth between the pre-headliner sets of Minus the Bear and Bouncing Souls, and ran over to watch one song of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah during a Bad Brains reggae segment. Despite the competition, CYHSY still pulled in a respectable sized crowd. The stages were far enough away in general, but I could also still hear Alec Ounsworth's unmistakable voice at times between Bad Brains songs depending on where I was standing (I watched Bad Brains from various areas throughout their set). Clipse were headlining on the stage farthest away from Bad Brains so I totally missed them, and Kool Keith, who played that same stage earlier. Bad Brains ended earlier than curfew which meant I got to run over and catch about 20 minutes of Tim and Eric which was a great way (laughing) to end the hectic two day fest.
One unfortunate aspect of the weekend was the dust. It was a problem at ACL this year too. Dry dirt and wind meant you were constantly breathing it in. A signifigant portion of the crowd was wearing bandanas or other gas mask-like things on their faces. I didn't, but I should have because I think it made me a little sick. More pictures from day two below...

Ryan's official shift at the 12-hour Fucked Up show was really only 4-6, but he got there a little late and stayed much longer. John Joseph did two Cro-Mags songs with Fucked Up ("Malfunction" and "Life of My Own"). Tim Harrington sang "Over the Edge" by Underdog, "Victim in Pain" by Agnostic Front, and then moshed while someone grabbed the mic and sang Agnostic Front's "Last Warning" F'd Up played "Blitzkrieg Bop" by the Ramones twice. First with Moby singing and then later with Ezra Koenig from Vampire Weekend singing. Moby also did "12XU" by Minor Threat and "Nervous Breakdown" by Black Flag. Ezra also sang "Parents" by the Descendents and a Blitz song. J. Mascis did "Chunks" by Last Rites (a song D Jr often covers) with them while Matador's Gerard was on guitar and then J. played drums while Fucked Up played "I Saw It" by Deep Wound. Fucked Up of course played lots of hardcore and punk covers on their own too, and even some originals. Pictures of it all below...

Agnostic Front @ Knitting Factory, 8/21/08 (hardcoreshutterbug)
Hardcore is always screaming about unity, and in times like these, it's admirable that those aren't empty threats. A gang of NYHC bands have teamed up for a benefit for two of their own, Dr. Tom and Walter "Monsta" Ryan of Subzero and Merauder who has liver cancer. NYHC legends Sick Of It All, Cro-Mags (jam), Murphy's Law, Maximum Penalty, Subzero, Jasta (aka Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed) and many others are playing a benefit show at Studio B (we'll let you know if that venue changes) on 9/27. Tickets are on sale, check out the flyer down below. If you can't make the show, there are two other ways you can help..... buy yourself a CD and/or sign up for a free website.
What the hell is a Cro-Mags (jam) anyway? No, it isn't Trey Anastasio playing a 25 minute version of "We Gotta Know" nor is it the latest concoction from Smuckers..... Cro-Mags (jam) is the throat of Village Voice cover star John Joseph with a crew of "No-Mags" providing the soundtrack (aka John is the only original member in the group. The other original members have toured as just "Cro-Mags") . The jam band is also on board for this year's Fun Fun Fun Fest along with ALL (who recently reunited), Dead Milkmen (who also reunited), Flipper, Adolescents, Integrity, Young Widows, Trash Talk, Walter Schriefels, Bad Brains, Bouncing Souls and many many many others.
Bouncing Souls AND Sick Of It All are also playing a NYC show, together, at Terminal 5, with Grey Area. Tickets are still available.
In possibly-related, possibly-NYHC news, Vision Of Disorder will put up their dukes with Indecision, Overcast, and Nassau Chainsaw on Nov 16th at Irving Plaza. Who is Nassau Chainsaw, you ask? NC is a collective of musicians from two very different NYHC bands, Neck and Locked in a Vacancy. Tim Williams (VOD), Sal Lococo (Sworn Enemy), and Mike D(Car Bomb) all lend vocals to their album. VOD's Dead in NY DVD is due on November 11th on Koch. Tickets go on sale 8/30 at noon. VOD's last reunion show was at the Crazy Donkey in Farmingdale. This will be their first NYC show in a while.
As we mentioned a couple weeks ago, the original line-up of Biohazard is playing Irving Plaza on Oct 5th. Tickets are on sale. The band recently did the same thing at L'Amours (which is now in Staten Island).
Subzero recently opened up for Body Count.
Check out a bunch of related videos and the benefit flyer below....
