It will truly be sheer terror on a boat when the NYHC band of the same name sets sail on a Rocks off Cruise this summer. Paul Bearer and crew will join The Templars for what is being billed as a night of "Boats and Braces and Angry Faces," and tickets for this show aboard the Jewel on July 28 go on sale Friday (4/19) at 11:55AM.
Speaking of classic NYHC, John Joseph of Cro-Mags will return with his walking tour, "The History of Art, Crime, Drugs and Punk Rock on the Lower East Side" starting next week (April 21). Tickets for additional events, which happen weekly, are also on sale.
After problems with the case surfaced earlier this year, charges against Harley Flanagan have been dismissed according to a report via New York Natives. Harley Flanagan was charged with attacking two current members of his former band Cro-Mags at a July show, weilding a knife and stabbing them both. Check out a video statement from Harley Flanagan below.
Head below for Harley's statement.

It is clear that Sheer Terror live up to the creedo "just can't hate enough", and I can totally respect that. Look for the NYHC favorites to team with Cro-Mags for what is somewhat of a tradition for Jon Joseph and crew, an end of the year show. This time, look for those two to team with Rude Awakening, Brain Slug, and Born Annoying at Highline Ballroom on December 30th. Tickets are on sale.
The show will be the first hometown appearance for Jon Joseph and the boys since the ill-fated incident at Webster Hall this past summer. Jon Joseph has made the odd appearance since then, including performing a song with Refused at Europa. Harley Flanagan, Joseph's former bandmate and the accused in the assault, is awaiting trial in early December.

Likewise, Pat Kiernan's Halloween triva night at The Bell House didn't happen either and has now been rescheduled for November 13 and is being billed as "Anything But Politics." Tickets are now on sale.
Youth of Today at Acheron (more by Jason House)
Black & Blue Bowl 2012 has been announced and includes appearances from Sheer Terror, Youth of Today, Outburst, The Mob (who are also playing Chaos in Tejas), DYS (who we recently interviewed), A Tribute to Raybeez (with mems of Warzone and other NYHC all-stars) and much more. Tickets for the May 19th show at Webster Hall "will be announced within the next week."
The current Black & Blue lineup, with more bands to be announced, is below.
Sheer Terror were supposed to play a special matinee record release show at Bowery Electric in NYC on August 28th with special guests Supertouch and Suburban Scum, but Irene got in the way. The makeup date, with the same lineup, is today, 9/11/11. The 2pm show is all ages, and the 200 cap room will most likely fill-up quickly. Flyer below...

Hard Skin at Bruar Falls on 10/25/10
There are few punk/hardcore shows on the way in the next few weeks, but we'd be remiss without mentioning the surprise Hard Skin show that took place at Bruar Falls on 10/25/10. The show was one of two NYC shows for the comedic UK Oi band, as they also played Europa with Forgetters on Friday, 10/22 with The Rival Mob.
"Fat Bob had mentioned at the forgetters show on Friday that Hard Skin were playing on Monday night before they skipped back across the pond. Given the the rarity of their shows and the proximity to Drew's place, it seemed prudent to make it across the water to Colonial Williamsburg....Pictures from the Bruar Falls show adorn this post. Forgetters will play Bruar Falls TONIGHT (11/2) with Younger Lovers and Little Victory.
...The Hard Skin boys took the stage around the 11 o'clock hour and stirred the room up with a whole lot of Oi! Bruar may be a little small to contain such friskiness, but it was a pretty polite crowd despite the large drunk punk contingent and truth be told, the JS-NYC/ab rock Voltron was no paragon of sobriety by this point either. I had a good time, even given the curious tire deflations I returned to find on my iron steed when we got outside. Luckily, they were deflated and not punctured and Drew had a pump, so the good guys lived to ride another day. Good times all around. Not sure where/if HS are maintaining the web presence in this day and age, but you would do well to spend your weak American dollar on some of their swag and bring them back. Set to Googling, fresh-cut, and remember Hard Skin are good clean-cut fun." [Jaded Scenester]
Madball will play The Studio at Webster Hall on 12/13 with Lionheart, Bitter End as part of a string of dates for the trio. Incendiary will join them as local support. Ticket info is forthcoming, but full tour dates are below. Madball recently dropped their new LP Empire and parted ways with drummer Jay Weinberg (son of Max Weinberg).
Easy Action, featuring John Brannon of Negative Approach, will team up with The Men to play The Acheron on 11/15. The all ages show kicks off at 8PM. Easy Action tour dates are below.
The Queers will play Mercury Lounge on Jan 22nd. Tickets are on sale. The show is part of a short string of East Coast dates in 2011 that also includes Maxwell's one day before NYC; additional dates are below.
In a show dubbed "Brooklyn's Finest" (though BBG would beg to differ), Life of Agony will team up with Biohazard and Vision of Disorder to play Best Buy Theater on 12/16. Tickets are on sale.
And finally, LA's Youth Brigade (not the DC one with releases on Dischord) will play Mercury Lounge on 11/14. The show will be proceeded by a documentary on BYO Records and the band. Tickets are on sale.
All tour dates and more pictures of Hard Skin at Bruar Falls are below...
Starkweather at ABC No Rio
This Is Hardcore Fest 2010 details are officially in the open, and the three day Philly festival will feature appearances from Sheer Terror, Ink & Dagger (with Geoff Rickly of Thursday filling in on vocals), Kid Dynamite, Cro-Mags, Nails, Ringworm, Starkweather, Trapped Under Ice, Seraphim, and many others. The full list is below. Tickets are on sale for the full weekend, or each individual day (Fri, Sat) though Sunday (with Kid Dynamite and Ink & Dagger) is sold out.
One of the This is Hardcore bands, Starkweather, played ABC No Rio on Saturday (May 29) with Rosetta and Shell Shock, one of TWO Rosetta shows for the weekend (the second was the BV/1000 Knives production with Ken Mode). I ducked out before the headliner Shell Shock, and missed a good portion of Rosetta's set due to beverage consumption across the street, but Starkweather were as good (better?) than I had remembered, playing a mix of metal and hardcore all anchored by vocalist weighty and powerful Rennie Resmini's voice. The band's material from their new LP This Sheltering Night sounded fantastic live as well (cop that). More pictures from their appearance are below.
Another This is Hardcore band, Seraphim, is also on board to play SATURDAY at Cake Shop alongside Altered State, Voyager, and Monolith as part of a BV/1000 Knives/Science of Silence production. The show kicks off at 5PM!
