Gaza headlined Cake Shop on November 21st with Tiger Flowers, Meek is Murder, and Elitist, the first stop after their stint with The Red Chord on the "To Catch a PredaTOUR". In their first ever NYC appearance, Gaza's atonal and punishing riffs caused a ruckus on the floor of the venue as the band pummeled the moshing masses with tracks like "Calf", "Windowless House", and a new and unreleased track written since their mammoth 2009 release He is Never Coming Back. Fantastic live band.
Support was similarly impressive. Much like Gaza, Tiger Flowers also trotted out new material in their appearance but also relied on standards like "Last Horse" and "The Weight". Meek is Murder's tech-y screamo was highly energetic and powerful in the live setting, featuring a moshing bass player and a spastic frontman. Their Mosquito Eater EP is available for purchase or for free. Of the support, Elitist was the biggest surprise. The Portland band's gale force destruction reminded me of Trap Them, Clinging To The Trees of A Forest Fire, and a host of other bands that blend the intensity of hardcore, sludge, and grind with a blackened aesthetic. Look for their new material to be released on Season of Mist.
