Crazy Spirit (and fan) at 285 Kent (more by Tod Seelie)
New York's Alright 2013

If you were anywhere near The Acheron, 285 Kent or Le Poisson Rouge this weekend, you might have notices the masses of leather jackets, studs, spikey hair, and general attitude. For four days (April 18-21) New York's Alright took those venues with sold-out shows at 538 Johnson, Acheron, Saint Vitus & 285 Kent and featuring bands from as far as Japan and Spain. Nihilistic, explosive punk rock shows took place during the day and at night, and included names like Hank Wood & the Hammerheads, Rival Mob, Culo, Hoax, Crazy Spirit, Green Beret, Dawn of Humans, Glam, Stagnation and many many more. Check out some pictures of the insanity at InvisibleOranges.

Do you own essential junkshop glam comp Velvet Tinmine? Do you have fond memories of early-'00s Swedish rockers The Ark and still like The Hives but wonder what they'd be like if they were Italian? Do you like to have a good time? If you answered yes to any of these questions or are still reading this post, listen up: Italy's Giuda have just landed in the U.S. for a quick tour that will include two stops in NYC: Cake Shop on Friday, August 31 with Games, and then a week later at Saint Vitus on September 8 with Boot Blacks, Livids, and 45 Adaptors. No advance tickets for the Cake Shop show but tickets for Saint Vitus are on sale now. All tour dates are listed at the bottom of this post.

Giuda's debut album, Racey Roller, came out last year and is jam-packed with the kind of high-energy, rifftastic, crazy-catchy powerhouse stomp one associates with the just pre-punk days of The Sweet, Slade, and NY Dolls. It's a whole lot of fun. You can stream a few tracks via YouTube below. I am told on good authority that they are not to be missed live. So dont' miss them!

A list of all tour dates and streams are below.
