Shoxx at The Acheron, June 2012 (more by BBG)
Olympia, Washington's GAG is a hardcore punk force to be reckoned with, and the band are currently in the midst of a lengthy US tour that, as mentioned in today's What's Going On post, lands tonight (10/8) at Fitness at 1196 Myrtle Avenue with locals Shoxx, Goosebumps, Pleasure Industry and newcomers to the scene IVY (not to be confused with the NYC pop band of the same name). GAG brings the fury -- check out a video below for a preview of what is sure to be a nuts show. All GAG tour dates are in this post.
It will also be the last-ever show for the short-lived Shoxx (whose drummer, Elser Nino, also plays in Merchandise), so make sure to head over if you want to see them one last time. Also, check out a relatively recent track from Goosebumps below.
Meanwhile, Brooklyn newcomers Pleasure Industry are playing another wild show on Wednesday (11/13) at Death by Audio with Chicago's Violent End (a new band featuring members of Raw Nerve, Vile Gash, and Manipulation), Brooklyn's Brain Slug and New Brunswick punks Razorheads.
GAG, Ivy and Pleasure Industry tour dates are listed, along with streams, below...

D-Clone at Emo's (more by BBG)
D-Clone and their "wall of noise" are hitting the East Coast for a string of dates in October. So far the entire itinerary hasn't surfaced, but the band will join Zatsuon, Sad Boys, Dead Reich and two more TBA for a show at Acheron on October 6th. Not to be missed.
D-Clone's last US outing was at Chaos in Tejas 2011. They shared the stage with Veins that night, who will also play NYC in the coming weeks at 538 Johnson on April 8th with Raw Nerve (reportedly their last NYC show), Divine Right, Hoax, and Chain Wallet....

Ceremony at LPR (via)
In the wake of their sold-out mega show at LPR, Ceremony have announced a US tour in support of their forthcoming effort Zoo due on Matador. The dates do not include an NYC date so far, but will stop in Austin for SXSW at Red 7 on March 17th. More details are forthcoming, but tour dates are below.
As discussed, Ceremony played a packed out LPR with Rival Mob, Hoax, Kim Phuc (who also played a late show) and Gods & Queens. Pictures from the show are on the way but until then, check out video below.
In related news, the great Hoax will also join on another upcoming NYC bill, this time with the mighty Veins and Raw Nerve, as well as Chain Wallet at 538 Johnson on April 8th. More details are available at the Facebook event page. The band, who will release a new EP via Youth Attack this year, will prepare for an upcoming tour with SQRM in the coming days and will play Chaos in Tejas this year.
All tour dates and videos, below..
Disma at Union Pool last year (more by BBG)
The previously discussed August 6th mega-record release at Saint Vitus for Disma with Coffinworm, an exclusive east coast appearance from Loss, and Oak will be a whopper of a show, and now tickets are on sale. Get 'em while you can. Meanwhile, Disma's mammoth new LP Towards The Megalith is due via Profound Lore next week and you can stream one new track, "Purulent Quest", for the first time below!
Raw Nerve, who ripped it at Chaos in Tejas, will team with White Load and Brain Slug to play Acheron on 7/24. Raw Nerve have a new LP and EP available now at Youth Attack. Speaking of Youth Attack, Mark McCoy's band Failures will play 538 Johnson on 7/31 with Vaccine, Confines, and Salvation. McCoy's other band Veins played the venue last week with Ceremony.
Reminder, tonight (7/8) is the return of Sourvein (who blessed our 2009 Northside showcase) at Saint Vitus with Kings Destroy, Strong Intention, Pristina, and Night Bitch. Cannabis Corpse has unfortunately dropped off.
The Austerity Program has scheduled a late show at The Charleston on 7/20 with a "special surprise guest". No word on who exactly it is, but we have our suspicions...
Ramming Speed will team with Barn Burner and Natur for a show at Saint Vitus on 7/31 as part of a larger tour for the former two. Their tour dates are below.
More suggested shows and some classic video from Dystopia, Keelhaul, Diocletian, and Benumb is below. What did we miss?
Forgetters at Red 7 in Austin (more here)
Few hardcore and punk shows to put on your radar....
Forgetters will team with Oi band Hard Skin and Boston hardcore The Rival Mob for a killer three-way at Europa on Oct 22nd. Tickets are on sale. The show is one of three on Blake Schrazenbach's horizon. Forgetters will also play Cake Shop with Pregnant, These Days, and Bells on 9/10 and support Obits at Knitting Factory on 11/12. Their first 7" is out on September 21st.
Word is that Veins (with Mark McCoy of Das Oath, Charles Bronson, etc) was originally on the Hard Skin bill, but had to drop off, and speaking of Mark McCoy, his other project Failures has another show coming up. Australia's Straightjacket Nation will headline 538 Johnson with Failures, Vile Gash, Scapegoat, and Confines on 10/2. Veins, which also features members of Drunkdriver, Das Oath, and Castevet, recently pressed their great cassette on 7" vinyl. Pick up a copy via Youth Attack, it rules.
Speaking of Youth Attack, Brutal Chicago hardcore band Raw Nerve released their incredible self-titled LP on the label earlier this year. Though copies of that are long gone, you can still catch the band when they headline Acheron on 10/16 along with Manipulation, Perdition, and Concrete Cross (members Disnihil/Celebrity Murders).
And last but certainly not least, look for a double dose of Danish Hardcore punk from Hjertestop when they play NYC twice in early November. On 11/8, look for the band to play The Charleston with Night Birds, Nomos, and Crazy Spirit while 11/9 gets Acheron with Swedes Fy Fan! and Crazy Spirit.
