Systematic Death @ 538 Johnson
While dodging a string of lit Black Cats, half of an orange, warm Pabst Blue Ribbon spray, not to mention an entire room of swarming and rabid hardcore fans, Inmates played 538 Johnson on 9/18 as support for Japanese hardcore killers Systematic Death. The show was one of two for the pair and one of three overall dates for Systematic Death, with an earlier shindig at Europa with infamous Rhode Island band Dropdead taking place a few hours prior, and a third show happening in Philly the day before. I unfortunately missed Dropdead and Inmates at Europa but caught Systematic Death there. Later, I would catch Inmates at 538 Johnson.
And yes that's Keelhaul guitarist Chris Smith with Inmates. Keelhaul will be back in NYC on 10/10 with COC and Today Is The Day (tickets are still on sale).
Video from Dropdead's appearance in Philly on Friday (9/17) as well as pics from 538 Johnson are below.
Dan Lilker and Kevin Sharp on stage with Brutal Truth (more by Samantha Marble)
Dan Lilker and Kevin Sharp just played Europa with Brutal Truth. Now the grind band has scheduled a new show with Venomous Concept, their side project with Shane Embury and Danny Herrera of Napalm Death. Europa gets the look on September 23rd, tickets are on sale. The show is the lone US date thus far, with a string of dates in Japan currently on tap for the weeks prior. So far, no word on the upcoming Wolfbrigade and Bruce Banner splits or the upcoming album the the band discussed late last year.
Just a few weeks before that Europa will also play host to Japanese hardcore badasses Systematic Death, who will take the stage with the mighty Dropdead (!) for a show at Europa on September 18th. Tickets are on sale. The show is so far the lone date for Systematic Death, though Dropdead has a local show at AS220 in their native Providence, RI on 8/14.
And while we're on the subject of Japanese hardcore, A.G.E. are scheduled to tear down Knitting Factory with the freight train known as Hellshock (!) with support from Parasytic, Cervix, Perdition. The show goes down on devil's night (Oct 30th, how appropo) and tickets are on sale. Hellshock's They Wait For You Still dropped in the tail end of last year. Again, no other US dates for A.G.E. so far.
