Glue on Lamar Pedestrian Bridge - 3/19/15
Like there tend to be in Austin during SXSW, there were a few late shows on the Lamar Pedestrian Bridge last week, two of which included local hardcore band Glue (Thurs 3/19 and Sat 3/21). We caught both of those, and Glue's sets at both were especially apeshit. Whole place was a big mosh pit, and Glue were raw as hell.
The first show had them joined by a typically short and abrasive set from noise/hardcore duo Uniform (ex-The Men, Drunkdriver), a shambolic set from psych punks The Ukiah Drag, and the night ended with the highly-confrontational Pharmakon.
The second one had Houston hardcore band Dress Code, who had the place in a similar frenzy to Glue, and punky riff rockers Sheer Mag, who had much of the crowd huddled around the band much like they did in NYC just before SXSW. Pictures of both bridge shows are in this post.
Glue come to NYC soon for New York's Alright, during which they'll play The Wick on April 19 with Dawn of Humans, Heratys, Raw Distractions and Urbanoia. That's a day show (3 PM doors), and tickets are still available.
Sheer Mag also have a NY's Alright show. Theirs is a late one (11 PM doors) at Acheron on April 18 with Vanity, Bad Noids, Tapehead and
Uniform also put out a new song today via Stereogum. Listen to that, plus the ripping "Backwards Society" from Glue's 2014 S/T EP, with more pictures from the bridge shows, below...

Multi-venue NYC hardcore festival New York's Alright returns from April 16-19. Since we last spoke, the schedule was posted, and it includes shows at Acheron, Le Poisson Rouge, Saint Vitus, Palisades and The Wick. All shows (including the "unofficial" aftershows) this year will be ticketed, and tickets go on sale this Saturday (2/14). So far, only the link for The Wick's show is up, but tickets for LPR should be up son on their site, and the others should soon be on Ticketfly. Full schedule below.
Tickets are also on sale for a Kromosom / Aspects of War / Mommy show happening April 12 at Acheron, which isn't a NY's Alright show, but is a week earlier and entirely made up of bands playing the fest.
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...
