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.

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.

Infest in Miami, 2013 (more by Kris Alan Carter)
We mentioned that hardcore greats/powerviolence progenitors Infest were hitting the road, playing The Wick on June 28 with Paint It Black, Replica, and Ajax, and you can still grab tickets for that show. If you wanna catch the band in a more "intimate" space in the same neighborhood, it was just announced that Infest will be playing The Acheron on the day before (6/27) with Magrudergrind, Hounds of Hate, and Chain Rank. Tickets are on sale. That show will be nuts -- prepare for devastation. If you want to drink, consider parking yourself by the bar.

Caribou makes luxurious music for unflappable spirits. At the first of two area sold out shows Friday, they laid a heavy blanket of pounding kraut and sumptuous new disco over at Music Hall of Williamsburg (they played Bowery Ballroom on Saturday) with a technical wizardry that not only felt comforting, but truly enveloping for the senses.
Even as the members, led by Daniel Snaith, remained stoically tethered to their respective corners in a tight square setup on stage, often obscured behind mounds of equipment and wild projections, Caribou never hid their intentions. The music was always burning with an anonymous, or rather all-inclusive, emotional base - it didn't boast any distinct nationality or heritage, instead speaking a collective modern language in electronic, jazz-scented and prog-driven words.
In fact, the diverse group of songs performed from Caribou's (formally Manitoba) wide catalog, often as stylistically distinct as each passing record, felt like one long flowing conversation. Each number would churn and wobble until a glowing boiling point, like the rapturous ending of "Melody Day," only to be circumvented by the slow ascent of the next one.
Opener Toro y Moi took some cues from Caribou's textural playbook, as Chazwick Bundick' enhanced his more melodically driven chillwave with backing musicians this time around. The results of the full band addition might have been unpolished at brief moments, but was nonetheless rich with detail and tension, a positive sign that Chazwick's obvious promise was on the way to being more fully realized.
Hounds of Hate were first of third on the bill, but Ben missed them. More pictures from the music Hall show with some videos from Bowery, below...

Hounds of Hate
Todd Pendu's "Tuesday Night Disco" brings a noteworthy lineup to Glasslands tonight (5/4). The headliner, Hounds of Hate, uses synths and samples to make goth-inspired dance music and are here all the way from the UK. If you miss it though, don't worry they'll be around for a little while. Wednesday night they play Coco 66 with Dead Stars, The Hidden Ratio and New Yoga (an NYC band who are also on the Glasslands show and on tour with Hounds).
After that, Hounds of Hate play house parties the next two nights (Thursday, 5/6 & Friday, 5/7 - details below), which is a notable jump from their other shows this weekend - opening for Caribou and Toro y Moi at their sold-out Music Hall of Williamsburg and Bowery Ballroom shows. They then tour around the East Coast and Canada through May. Hear their cover of Snoop Dogg's "Sensual Seduction" and more below.
Laurel Halo, also on the bill at Glasslands tonight, plays dark, intricately arranged electronic pop. Her King Felix EP is free online. Get it while you can. If you miss her tonight, she plays NY Eye & Ear Fest's second day (also a Pendu production) on May 23rd at Knitting Factory.

Caribou, the musical project/band of Dan Snaith, is coming out with a new record, Swim, April 20th on Merge. The dancey, dubby, disco-influenced first single, "Odessa," is available for free, and its video is posted below.
The band hits the road with concerts around the world this April, May and June. They play two nights in NYC - May 7th at Music Hall of Williamsburg and May 8th at Bowery Ballroom. Toro Y Moi (who has his own SXSW and other NYC tour dates coming up) and London's Hounds Of Hate open. Tickets for the NY shows go on AmEx presale Wednesday, March 10th at noon. General sale starts Friday, March 12th at noon.
For a while now, Caribou's live show has mixed music and visuals, which is something that'll continue on this tour.
This year will also see a dramatic difference in the Caribou live performance. Now that technology has finally caught up to Dans ambitions for the bands show, while it will still be four musicians on stage, the dynamic interplay between visuals, electronics and the live sound is totally pliable."Odessa" video and all tour dates are below...
[Snaith says] "Now we can play the mix onstage like a dub mixer would - but even moreso than a Lee Perry because almost everything can be manipulated - not just the things that are controlled on a recording studio mixing desk. We can get that washing-around feeling and the unpredictability of sounds undergoing changes all the time. They say it takes a few years for the new century to kick in here we go."
