Blacklisted at Cake Shop in 2010 (more by Brian Reilly)
Boston hardcore traditionalists The Rival Mob, Philly boundary pushers Blacklisted, World War 4 (fronted by Mark Porter of NJHC band Floorpunch, plus other members of that band, The Rival Mob, and more), and Wilkes-Barre straightedge band Stick Together (whose lineup includes Ned Russin of Title Fight, plus members of War Hungry and Bad Seed) all played This Is Hardcore in Philly last year, and they'll soon team back up for what will be a very solid quadruple bill in NYC on June 7 at Le Poisson Rouge (co-presented by Hardcore Gig Volume and Noisey). Tickets for that show are on sale now.
Le Poisson Rouge still feels like a weird location for hardcore shows, but they do happen there. In fact, as previously discussed, two will happen there this month as part of the second annual New York's Alright (which Rival Mob played last year). This year's shows at LPR include Inmates, Anasazi, Omegas, Proxy, Warthog and Mercenary on 4/18 (tickets), and Infernoh, Crazy Spirit, Gas Rag, Wiccans, Stoic Violence, and Murderer on 4/19 (tickets). You can check out the lineups for other NY's Alright shows here.
Meanwhile, even sooner than that is Damaged City Fest in DC this weekend (4/11 & 4/12), which The Rival Mob also play, in addition to Infest, Los Crudos, Boston Strangler, Priests, Good Throb, Coke Bust and more.
And speaking of This Is Hardcore, the 2014 lineup for the Philly festival was recently announced, including Converge, Title Fight, Blacklisted, Bl'ast, Code Orange Kids, Nails, Full of Hell and many more. This year's fest happens from July 24-27 and tickets for that go on sale Saturday (4/12).
Converge also headline both nights of the inaugural Deathwish Fest which happens in Boston right before TIH (July 22 & 23), and also includes Blacklisted frontman George Hirsch's solo project Harm Wulf, plus Code Orange Kids, Modern Life Is War, Oathbreaker, Trap Them, Cult Leader, Self Defense Family, Doomriders and more. Tickets for that fest go on AmEx presale today (4/9) at noon with the general on-sale starting Friday (4/11) at noon.

Negative Approach at Fun Fun Fun Fest (more by BBG)
This is Hardcore returns to Philadelphia, PA for four days in August at Union Transfer (on 8/9) and Electric Factory (8/10 - 8/12). Both shows will have no barricades for you headwalkers/divers and in the case of Electric Factory, the venue will actually construct a stage in front of their usual stage (!) to get around the existing barricade. Now thats dedication/brutality.
As for the lineup, as usual the cast of hooligans gracing the stages of TIHC are a cast of notables, including Cro-Mags, Negative Approach, Gorilla Biscuits, Breakdown, Blacklisted, Killing Time, Nails, Ringworm, Gehenna and many many more. Full lineup is below and tickets go on sale on May 17th at noon.
Power Trip is part of said lineup, and reminder, the band will hit Acheron on May 15th as part of a string of East Coast dates. All tour dates are below.
