"BURN & Crumbsuckers sounded great. NYHC on top nothing can compare to the Black N Blue Bowl this year." - Joey

"Burn was one of the best sets I've ever seen. Black n Blue was perfect. Can't wait to do it again next year." - @YaDingoid

NYC's annual hardcore festival Black N' Blue Bowl returned for its 2015 edition this past weekend at Webster Hall on Saturday (5/16) and Sunday (5/17). The festival included a few exciting reunions, including post-hardcore OGs Burn, who had original members Chaka Malik (vocals) and Gavin Van Vlack (guitar) with onetime bassist Manuel Carrero and new drummer Durijah Lang (which is also Glassjaw's rhythm section, and was briefly Saves the Day's too). We got almost their entire discography, including all of their seminal 1990 self-titled EP, all of Last Great Sea, and all but one song on Cleanse (they didn't play "Strata").

The fest also had crossover thrash vets Crumbsuckers getting back together once again, and '80s hardcore/Oi! band American Eagle back together too. Candiria played their first show in years at the fest, and still very-active veterans like Sick Of It All and Madball played as well. The Regulators, who have members of Bad Brains and Cro-Mags, played a bunch of Bad Brains favorites like "Sailin' On" and "Big Takeover," Dave Smalley played material from his bands Dag Nasty, ALL and Down By Law, and chuggy veterans Earth Crisis played. We also got sets from newer bands keeping alive the older hardcore style like The Rival Mob and Turnstile (who just announced a tour with Backtrack).
