United Nations @ Saint Vitus 8/2/2014
United Nations

The Geoff Rickley-fronted screamo/powerviolence supergroup United Nations played a sold-out show at Saint Vitus on Saturday (8/2), and we’ve got pictures of the show in this post. They were joined by Florida post-hardcore crew and current tourmates Frameworks, and Brooklyn-based heavy post-hardcore bands Descender and the death-ier Primitive Weapons. The packed house at Vitus got pretty rowdy, with some mosh pit and crowd surfing action punctuating the sets. United Nations played a bunch of stuff from their recent Temporary Residence-released full-length The Next Four Years and closed the set with fan favorite “United Nations vs. United Nations,” about that time they got sued by the non-musical United Nations. UN member Jonah Bayer’s sister Vanessa Bayer, who you might recognize from SNL, introduced the headliners, or should we say ROASTED the headliners (watch the video below).

United Nations and Frameworks are now on a tour across the country, but they return to the NY-area for a show at Asbury Lanes in Asbury Park on 8/17. Bottomfeeder is also on that bill.

Check out more pictures from all four sets in Brooklyn, as well as setlists for everyone but Frameworks, and the Vanessa Bayer roast video, below…
