Antidote at The Bell House, Feb 2010 (more by Tod Seelie)
While an album every 21 years is hardly "productive output," I'll nevertheless take it from veteran hardcore crew Antidote who are celebrating their thirty year anniversary with the release of No Peace in Our Time, a new LP. Due on November 13, the 10-song long-player features nine fresh offerings and an appearance from Roger Miret (Agnostic Front) on a cover of the Black Flag classic "Rise Above."
In the meantime, Antidote is preparing to play a few dates and. NYCers can look forward to Antidote at Bowery Electric on Dec 2 with The Mob, Citizens Arrest and Urban Waste. Ticketing info is on the way and tour dates are below.

"xxx ALL AGES xxx" The Boston Hardcore Film is a documentary film that explores the early Boston Hardcore music scene from the years 1981 thru 1984. Unlike earlier films that were centered on the members of the bands, this film delves into the social and communal aspects of that particular era. The community, culture, straight edge and DIY (Do it yourself) ethic of the time are all explored in the film. Never before seen archival footage, photographs, interviews and dramatizations make up the body of the film.xxx All Ages xxx is playing Boston this weekend (6/22 - 6/24) and plays NYC June 29th - July 1st at Nitehawk in Williamsburg. Tickets are on sale for the 6/29 and 6/30 showings, 7/1 is sold out. If you can't make it to any of the the screenings, head over to the film's site and you can preorder a DVD to watch in the comfort of your own home.
Additionally, there will be a DVD release party at Bar Matchless on July 1. The venue will host performances from The F.U.'s (First NYC show in over 25 years!!!), The K.W.E. with special guests Springa (SSD), Jimmy Keough (Stranglehold), Urban Waste, and No Control and the show will take place directly after the noon showing of the film at Nitehawk.
Check out a listing of screenings and a trailer for the film below.
Porcell of Bold on stage with Youth of Today (more by Jason House)
Black & Blue Bowl is almost here, and in addition to the previously discussed Rancid, Warzone Tribute, Sheer Terror, Youth of Today and-many-others-show at Webster Hall on Saturday (5/19) -- advance tickets sold-out, a few available at the door -- here are a few related shows set for Sunday (5/20) to help round out the weekend.
The first is a good old fashioned matinee and goes down at 3PM at Bowery Electric on 5/20. Bold (with original lineup in tow like they were at Lit Lounge) will join Skarhead and Provider along with a spoken word performance from John Joseph (of Cro-Mags, who play NYC soon with Sick of it All). Ten bucks or your Black & Blue Bowl ticket stub gets you in. Those 21+ and over with $20 can also stick around afterwards for a secret show.
Later that night in Greenpoint, Danny Diablo will team with Subzero, Ill-Roc Soldiers, Jaysaun, Lifestyle (with Skam Dust), DGAF, Iron Bar Collective and Matt Maddox for a second show on Sunday (5/20) at Red Star (at 30 Greenpoint Ave). $10 gets you into that 9PM show (not free to B&B ticketholders).
In hardcore-but-not-B&B Bowl-news, Urban Waste will hit Studio at Webster Hall on June 16th with support from Dead City Riot, Crushed, and Scrapers. Tickets are on sale.
Tons of great hardcore and punk shows in the coming months!
Richmond hardcore rippers Government Warning will hit the road for a string of dates with Night Birds in late February, hitting NYC for a pair of shows on Feb 19th. The day of old-school hardcore madness begins at an early show at Cake Shop (5PM) with Perdition and Ex-Humans and continues into the wee hours at a late show (11PM) with 0megas at 538 Johnson, # 201. Full tour dates are below.
As previously mentioned, 108 teams up with Ensign, Incendiary, and Torchbearer at Cake Shop at 3PM on Saturday (1/08, yeah I know). Tickets are still available, but this 21+ show WILL sell out. As a result, 108 has added a second ALL AGES show at Death By Audio with Primitive Weapons, Heavy Breath and Black Kites that will kick off at 9PM. No advance tickets, and $10 gets you in.
And now for all of you who missed them on their first go around, you're in luck. Tear It Up have reunited and will play Europa on March 25th with Last in Line & The Cell Mates.
Since forming out of the ashes of Dead Nation in 2000, Tear It Up has become a mainstay of the American DIY hardcore scene. Their aggressive fast hardcore sound and intense live performance won over legions of fans from the start. Tear It Up toured the US and Europe constantly, and when not on tour still played as many as 4 shows a week anywhere within a days drive of their native New Jersey. Tear It Up survived several line up changes most notably Paul went on to form Cut the Shit and John was drafted from Down in Flames. Tear It Up broke up shortly before [their final record Taking You Down With Me] was released... Let it be known that Tear It Up went out at the top and never put out a weak record or put or a lame half hearted show.Tickets for the Brooklyn show are on sale.
Most Precious Blood are back, and will play Cake Shop on January 30th with Suburban Scum & Spectators. Advance tickets are available now.
The previously discussed 'Steve Ignorant plays Crass' show at Santos Party House on March 10 has added Leftover Crack and Thulsa Doom to it's ranks. Tickets are still available. Leftover Crack played Music Hall of Williamsburg on the day after Christmas 2010, but not with Bouncing Souls in Asbury Park that same week.
Reverend Horton Heat has a pretty impressive set of tour dates laid out for the first half of the year, and one of thise is scheduled for The Bell House on May 6th. Tickets are on sale. Full tour schedule is below.
Though Stiff Little Fingers still exists as a band, original guitar player Harry Cluney will play Europa to perform "Stiff Little Fingers Classics" on Feb 11th. Tickets are on sale.
Supertouch has reunited, and will play Santos on Feb 12th with Sweet Diesel. The show originally had 1.6 Band on the bill, but they have since been removed. Tickets are on sale.
Reagan Youth will team up with Yuppicide, Beer & Cable, and Agitator to play Europa on January 23rd. Tickets are on sale.

World War 3 I tell ya. Agnostic Front played all of their seminal Victim in Pain with moments of United Blood and even "Gotta Go" for the new-ish schoolers at Bell House on Friday (2/26). Snowstorm be damned, it was a packed house, with a decent crowd for Ultraviolence by the time I arrived at the venue (missed Sexual Suicide), although for my money I wish I had gotten there after the following band, Urban Waste whose live show I couldn't get into despite liking their recorded output.
One of the risks you run by being an older band in a younger-skewing genre (punk, hardcore, hip hop, etc) is coming off like a nostalgia act. I have seen this happen with countless bands who don't have the energy to keep up with either the songs or the crowd (see previously mentioned bands). But for every rule there is an exception. Cro-Mags. The Jesus Lizard. De La Soul. Add Antidote and Agnostic Front to that list.
Antidote hit the stage a shade after 11PM and ripped it, playing songs from their great Thou Shalt Not Kill, as well as covers by Minor Threat ("I Don't Wanna Hear It", Filler") and Black Flag ("Rise Above"). Stage energy was met with equal crowd energy. The original matieral was furious, and covers breathed new life into those hardcore classics. Any other night, I would have been content with Antidote as a headliner.
I wish I had enough fingers and toes to count the number of times that guitarist Vinnie Stigma yelled "This is Hardcore!" during Agnostic Front's set. The vets blasted through a short, but sweet set of material that covered their early years, joined by a chorus of AF fans and Sab Grey of the legendary Iron Cross, who helped with AF's cover of "Crucified". As advertised, Stigma and vocalist Roger Miret were joined on stage by drummer Dave Jones (also Mental Abuse) and Rob Kabula for their set of Victim In Pain material, with bassist Adam Moochie and Dave Jones sitting in for the departed Raybeez for the United Blood material. Killer show, though I wish I wasnt showered in beer as much as I was that night, and I am sure Miret and some stage divers agree; too many people to count slipped and fell on that slippery stage.
Some video of Antidote and Agnostic Front, as well as a ton of pics are below...
