The Warsaw show is The Power of The Riff’s first venture on the East Coast after two years of successful events in Los Angeles (pictures of year 1 HERE, year two HERE). Organizers / creators Greg Anderson and Sam James Velde are in the eye of the hurricane, tapping into a line up that represents the forefathers, current touring acts, plus shedding light on “up and coming” and local acts. Year three on the West coast kicks off on August 11th at Echo/Echoplex in LA with OFF!, Dr.Know, Repulsion, Noothgrush, Xibalba, and many more. Check out the flyer below along with video from 2011.
BrooklynVegan and Power of The Riff combined forces for both a day and night show during SXSW this year. If you missed it, check out pictures from our Converse/Thrasher Deathmatch party (HERE, HERE and HERE) as well as our official showcase.
