Testament on the Motorhead Motorboat in October (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
A couple of stacked east-coast hardcore/metal festivals have recently announced their lineups. First up, Damaged City Fest will take place in Washington D.C. from April 10-12. It will feature UK-based The Mob, Canada's Career Suicide, DC's Coke Bust, PA's Hounds of Hate, NJ's Razorheads, and NY-based Warthog and Ajax, among many others. Those last few bands, along with DC's Red Death, who will also be making an appearance, were featured in our hardcore roundup last week. Ticket info and more bands TBA. Full initial lineup below.
The following weekend, Worcester, MA will play host to the more metal-centric New England Hardcore and Metal Festival on April 17-19. The lineup is pretty huge, with classic thrash like Testament, Exodus and Nuclear Assault joining more current popular bands like Between the Buried and Me and more exciting underground acts like Nails, Wisdom in Chains and Homewrecker. Tickets are available now in either three-day packages or for individual days.
Check out the initial lineups and flyers for both fests, below...

Tons of great hardcore and punk shows in the coming months!
Richmond hardcore rippers Government Warning will hit the road for a string of dates with Night Birds in late February, hitting NYC for a pair of shows on Feb 19th. The day of old-school hardcore madness begins at an early show at Cake Shop (5PM) with Perdition and Ex-Humans and continues into the wee hours at a late show (11PM) with 0megas at 538 Johnson, # 201. Full tour dates are below.
As previously mentioned, 108 teams up with Ensign, Incendiary, and Torchbearer at Cake Shop at 3PM on Saturday (1/08, yeah I know). Tickets are still available, but this 21+ show WILL sell out. As a result, 108 has added a second ALL AGES show at Death By Audio with Primitive Weapons, Heavy Breath and Black Kites that will kick off at 9PM. No advance tickets, and $10 gets you in.
And now for all of you who missed them on their first go around, you're in luck. Tear It Up have reunited and will play Europa on March 25th with Last in Line & The Cell Mates.
Since forming out of the ashes of Dead Nation in 2000, Tear It Up has become a mainstay of the American DIY hardcore scene. Their aggressive fast hardcore sound and intense live performance won over legions of fans from the start. Tear It Up toured the US and Europe constantly, and when not on tour still played as many as 4 shows a week anywhere within a days drive of their native New Jersey. Tear It Up survived several line up changes most notably Paul went on to form Cut the Shit and John was drafted from Down in Flames. Tear It Up broke up shortly before [their final record Taking You Down With Me] was released... Let it be known that Tear It Up went out at the top and never put out a weak record or put or a lame half hearted show.Tickets for the Brooklyn show are on sale.
Most Precious Blood are back, and will play Cake Shop on January 30th with Suburban Scum & Spectators. Advance tickets are available now.
