Rival Mob @ 285 Kent, 2/23/2013
It got a little incestuous at 285 Kent on Saturday (2/23), when Massachusetts band The Rival Mob played their record release show with special guests Stick Together, Give, Waste Management, WW4, Prisoner Abuse and Brain Slug (NY's Inside Out cancelled). Members of Rival Mob also serve in Prisoner Abuse and WW4 (with members of Floorpunch), while Waste Management contains members of some of Rival Mob's related projects, so it was definitely a show that kept it "family" for the duration.
Rival Mob's new LP Mob Justice is out now, and definitely worth a listen for fans of brutal, late 80s-style hardcore. More pics from the wild straight-edge show at 285 Kent are below.

Boston Strangler @ Acheron, 10/27/2012
Punk, in its many incarnations, ruled supreme at Acheron on 10/27, when Beantown throwback hardcore heroes Boston Strangler played with Burning Spirits-influenced NYC favorites Perdition, crusty-punk from Crazy Spirit, and killer sets from Waste Management and Prisoner Abuse. The show was a celebration of 200 live gigs for NYC insititution Hardcore Gig Volume, who proudly lined the walls of The Acheron with flyers from previous shows.
Prisoner Abuse, which features members of No Tolerance, Waste Management, Think I Care, and others, have welcomed their new self-titled LP via Painkiller Records. The LP release was available for purchase at the show, but you can also order your copy via the label.
Pictures of "da' Stranglah," Perdition and Crazy Spirit are below (sorry, we missed Waste Management and Prisoner Abuse).
