The UV Race @ DbA, 5/21/2013
Annnnnnd all of a sudden it is disgusting outside. Australia's The UV Race played the soupy-hot Death By Audio last night (May 21) along with local support from Warthog (mem Nude Beach, ex-The Men), fellow Aussies Scott & Charlene's Wedding and local post-punks Household. The show saw the six-piece punk team perform to a packed house radiating heat/humidity mostly due to dancing and bopping around to the band's insanely catchy tunes. Pictures of the former three (no Household, sorry) are in this post.
The show was part of UV Race's current US tour that has them in Brooklyn tonight screening their film Autonomy & Deliberation (but not performing) at Spectacle Theater. Meanwhile, Australia's Total Control (with whom they share members and are touring with outside NYC) play their first of two NYC shows at Mercury Lounge tonight (5/22) and tickets are still available.
More pictures from Death by Audio are below.
Hoax at Acheron (more by Sarja Hasan)
A packed-to-the-gills Acheron welcomed the stacked lineup of Cleveland punk crew Inmates, bloodied-Massachusetts-set Hoax, NYC favorites Warthog and Murderer on January 12, a rare showing for the Clevo crew (their last was in 2010). More pics from Acheron can be seen in their sweaty glory over at Invisible Oranges.
Dawn of Humans at 285 Kent, December 2012 (more by Lukas Hodge)
After teasing us with a promise of an "international punk and hardcore" fest in NYC, organizers have announced New York's Alright 2013. The festival will happen April 18 - 21 in NYC and will feature everything from local favorites like Perdition, Goosebumps, Crazy Spirit, Dawn of Humans, Hank Wood & The Hammerheads, to names like Double Negative, Culo, Who Killed Spikey Jacket?, Stagnation, The Rival Mob, Hoax, and many many more. Full lineup announcement is below, individual show lineups and venues are still TBA.
Both Hoax and Warthog, who are on board for the NYC fest, play with Inmates at Acheron on January 12.
Full statement regarding New York's Alright is below.
Merchandise at WIERD, September 2012 (more by Phil Maler)
Freelance writer and DJ Maria Sherman gave us a list of her favorites of 2012, including top shows and her favorite label. Check out her list below.
On that list is Merchandise's performance at 538 Johnson, one of the few early performances to feature now-permanent drummer Elsner Nino (also of Shoxx). The new-look Merchandise will perform twice at 285 Kent this week, including tonight's show WITH Night Sins, Pharmakon, Herzog Rising AND Shoxx.

Inmates at 528 Johnson, Sept 2010 (more by Keith Marlowe)
Brutal Cleveland hardcore crew Inmates (mem Integrity, Keelhaul) will return to NYC to play a show with punishing MA crew Hoax (who have a new video), NYC favorites Warthog, and Murderer. January 12 at Acheron, so save the date. With that insane lineup, the show promises to be pretty mental, possibly as crazy as the band's appearances with Systematic Death in 2010. Don't sleep.
Head below for a stream of 2007's Assholes Unanimous Presents... in full alongside the new Hoax video.
Shoxx at Acheron, June 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
The previously discussed show with Spectres and Crimson Scarlet (who are on their way to Varning) tonight at Acheron (10/26) has grown. Juuust a little. Now the two band bill has absorbed another punk show previously scheduled for 538 Johnson featuring headliner Shoxx with Leather, Destruction Unit and Warthog. The combined six-band mega-bill kicks off at 8PM and will set you back $10.
The reason for the switch?
Hi. FDNY has been in the building all morning trying to crack down on illegal lofts. So for our sake/538's sake, PLEASE don't be an asshole tonight or do anything that might further jeopardize our home beyond us already having shows here. i love having shows in our apt and want to be able to continue doing so, and also am not interested in being homeless. - [Facebook commenter]

Crazy Spirit at Tommy's Tavern, April 2012 (more by Sarah Coulter)
July 4 isn't till Wednesday but you can catch fireworks -- the sonic kind -- at The Acheron in Bushwick, Brooklyn (57 Waterbury St) in the days leading up to and including Independence Day, with three punk shows in a row occupying an otherwise dry spell of NYC hardcore/metal.
It begins tonight (7/2) with a record release show/European tour kickoff for NYC wildmen Crazy Spirit. The band, who will be joined by Smart Cops (from Italy!), Warthog (formerly Chain Wallet, ex-The Men, demo here) and Deformity, is celebrating their new self-titled LP out now via Toxic State. Order yours now, but try before you buy. Video and the flyer are below.
Tomorrow night (7/3) will feature headliners Deadly Reign, which features members of World Burns to Death, Century of War, Scarred for Life, Kegcharge and more. Joining the Austin band will be supporting acts Broken, Trenchgrinder and Zatsuon.
Last but not least, Brown Sugar will head up a five band benefit for Brandworkers on Independence Day (7/4), an organization who's goal is "protecting and advancing the rights of retail and food employees." The great Creem will join said bill, along with Deformity, Death Camp and Altered Boys.
Flyers, videos and streams of some of the bands are below.
Merchandise at Musetrap in Chicago (more by Jimmy Forabi)
Tampa's Merchandise released the stellar Children of Desire LP this year and will embark on a US tour this fall, hitting NYC on September 12th at Home Sweet Home (for the WIERD party). Details on the band's US tour are forthcoming.
Vår (mem Iceage) made their US debut last night at WIERD, and the band will play June 17 at Glasslands as part of the Northside Festival with Crystal Stilts, Amen Dunes, Wymond Miles (of Fresh & Onlys), and Warthog. Tickets are still available or you can get in with your Northside badge.

this is VÅR...
we mentioned that Crystal Stilts played 285 Kent with Woods over the weekend, it was their only announced non-festival date. I guess technically that's still true, but not really, because they're now set to play the Sacred Bones party at the Northside Festival on Glasslands on June 17. The lineup also includes Amen Dunes, Iceage side-project War who are now called VÅR, Wymond Miles (of Fresh & Onlys), and Warthog. Tickets are on sale now.
It's probably a good idea that War changed their name, and according to the band, VÅR (which translates to "spring") is not just a change in name, but also a change in direction. They've released their first new video as VÅR (pictured above), for the track, "In Your Arms," which you can watch below. Their debut LP is set to come out next year on Sacred Bones. The Northside party will be the US live debut for VÅR.

For Wymond Miles, the Northside show is part of a June tour he'll be going on, most of which is with labelmates Psychic Ills (who plays Death by Audio on 5/25 with Ex Cops and PC Worship). That tour will be in support of Under the Pale Moon, his debut full length and followup to the Earth Has Doors EP, which came out earlier this year. Under the Pale Moon will be released on June 12 via Sacred Bones. Download the track, "Pale Moon," above or stream it below.
Lastly, Warthog (formerly Chain Wallet) is a new Brooklyn "supergroup" which includes Chris Hansell (who left The Men in 2011 to be replaced by Ben Greenberg aka Hubble) and members of Nomos, Nude Beach, Creem, and Dawn of Humans. They played their first show at 538 Johnson on April 8 with Hoax, Veins, and Raw Nerve. Check out footage of most of that show below.
