Boston Strangler at Acheron in 2012 (more by Sarja Hasan)
As is generally the case, there's a whole bunch of cool hardcore/punk shows in NYC in the coming months. Here's a rundown of upcoming local shows and tours passing through NYC that you might want to check out:
The excellent UK sludgy hardcore outfit Shrapnel are touring the US and will be landing in NYC for a matinee show at The Acheron on December 6 with their tourmates, DC's Red Death, and New Jersey mainstays Razorheads. It starts at 3 PM and Tickets for the all ages show will be $10 at the door. All dates are listed below.
The following Saturday (12/13), the Acheron will play host to a loaded Massachusetts-centric hardcore bill that will bring appropriately-named Boston-based HC rippers Boston Strangler to town. They'll be joined by fellow Massholes Waste Management, Peacebreakers, Oblivionation, Jock's Blood and Moron. Despite everyone being from the same state, this is actually a pretty varied bill as these things go, with the classicist approach of Boston Strangler, Waste Management's slower chug, and the surprisingly rangy (dare we say poppy) sound of Moron providing some great contrast. Tickets for that one are on sale now.
Just one week later, there will be yet another stacked hardcore show at Acheron on December 20. This one will feature Spain's Orden Mundial, who are also playing that previously-discussed Puce Mary show at Palisades a day earlier (tickets). They'll be joined by Philly crew Blank Spell, as well as locals Mommy and Pox. Tickets are on sale now. Both shows are part of the Spanish band's tour, and those dates are all listed below.
After you flip your calendar to 2015, head to Saint Vitus for more HC on January 1. This show will bring the great Austin band Glue together with local ragers Warthog and the post-punkish Gainesville crew Allergy. The lineup will be filled out by locals Nandas, and tickets are on sale now. Glue have that great, sludgy, groovy Texas sound on lock, Warthog's local reputation speaks for itself, and this should be a great show.
On January 4 at Palisades Montreal post-punk inflected band Proxy will take the stage with Hank Wood and the Hammerheads, who put out the great Stay Home LP earlier this year. They'll be joined by Pox, who are also playing that Orden Mundial show. Tickets for this show are not yet up, but they'll likely be available via Ticketfly.
Long Island's Backtrack will rep New York Hardcore at the Every Time I Die show at Webster Hall on December 12. Also on that show are The Ghost Inside, Architects UK and Hundredth. Tickets are still available.
Crime In Stereo @ BK Bazaar in October (via BV Instagram)
Long Island melodic hardcore crew Crime in Stereo are playing the mostly pop-punk Glamour Kills Holiday Fest at Webster Hall on December 16. Aside from them, that show features PA pop-punks The Wonder Years and a ton of other likeminded bands. Tickets are on sale now.
On a similar note, Comeback Kid will be back on their tour supporting Four Year Strong to play Irving Plaza on January 22. Expire, Handguns, and Heart To Heart are also on the bill. Tickets are on sale now.
This Saturday (12/6) is Madball's 20th anniversary celebration of their debut album Set It Off at the Marlin Room at Webster Hall. They'll be joined by Turnstile, Death Before Dishonor, Take Offense and Downpresser. Tickets are still available.
For something a little less hardcore and a little more street punk this Saturday, Blanks 77 are playing NYC at Grand Victory before they play the Bouncing Souls holiday shows in NJ later in the month. They'll be joined by Dead Tricks, Parasitix and Breaking Sounds. Tickets for that are on sale now.
That about does it for the coming weeks. Did we miss anything?

The big-name headliners at Damaged City this year include the reformed versions of Infest (who recently played the A389 bash) and Los Crudos, along with a host of other notables -- Boston Strangler, Rival Mob, Violent Reaction, Coke Bust, Priests, Good Throb, and more TBA. Check out the lineup to date and the flyer below.

Rival Mob @ 285 Kent, 2/23/2013
It got a little incestuous at 285 Kent on Saturday (2/23), when Massachusetts band The Rival Mob played their record release show with special guests Stick Together, Give, Waste Management, WW4, Prisoner Abuse and Brain Slug (NY's Inside Out cancelled). Members of Rival Mob also serve in Prisoner Abuse and WW4 (with members of Floorpunch), while Waste Management contains members of some of Rival Mob's related projects, so it was definitely a show that kept it "family" for the duration.
Rival Mob's new LP Mob Justice is out now, and definitely worth a listen for fans of brutal, late 80s-style hardcore. More pics from the wild straight-edge show at 285 Kent are below.
Rival Mob at LPR, Feb 2012 (more by Sarah Coulter)
The Rival Mob are readying the release of their Revelation Records debut, Mob Justice, which is due on February 26. As such, the Boston hardcore crew has assembled a whopper of a show to celebrate the occasion, with Stick Together, Inside Out (NY), Give, Waste Management, World War 4, Prisoner Abuse and Brain Slug also on thisa mega-bill which goes down at 285 Kent on Feb 23. Tickets are on sale for this all ages, must see show.
A list of all Rival Mob dates, plus a great live video, are below.

Boston Strangler @ Acheron, 10/27/2012
Punk, in its many incarnations, ruled supreme at Acheron on 10/27, when Beantown throwback hardcore heroes Boston Strangler played with Burning Spirits-influenced NYC favorites Perdition, crusty-punk from Crazy Spirit, and killer sets from Waste Management and Prisoner Abuse. The show was a celebration of 200 live gigs for NYC insititution Hardcore Gig Volume, who proudly lined the walls of The Acheron with flyers from previous shows.
Prisoner Abuse, which features members of No Tolerance, Waste Management, Think I Care, and others, have welcomed their new self-titled LP via Painkiller Records. The LP release was available for purchase at the show, but you can also order your copy via the label.
Pictures of "da' Stranglah," Perdition and Crazy Spirit are below (sorry, we missed Waste Management and Prisoner Abuse).
Rorschach at The Charleston (more by Ryan Muir)
Last year's jaw-dropping lineup at Chaos In Tejas was sick, and 2010 is proving to be no different. For four days across four different Austin venues, May 27th to the 30th at Emo's, Mohawk, Red 7 and Beerland, the festival will offer some of the most impressive names in the independent/underground scene including the indestructible Rorschach, the first ever US appearance from Australian punk greats X, a one-time reunion of Japanese crust-core band Bastard, the quirky cutesy indie pop-punk of Grass Widow, Gehenna (who just played A389), Subhumans, Bastard Noise (who have a new record), Bone Awl, BV faves Jeff The Brotherhood, The Spits, Psychedelic Horseshit, Ty Segall, The Ponys, Iron Lung (who recently played Cake Shop), Poison Idea, Inquisition, and many many many others.
In addition to the obvious mayhem that will ensue over the four days, Chaos in Tejas will also showcase art from some of the scene's most interesting names including Tim Kerr (of Big Boys), Winston Smith (responsible for tons of collage work, including the Dead Kennedys best album art), and Bryan Ray Turcotte (best known for his book Fucked Up and Photocopied).
The full (and intimidating) list is below...
