Every Time I Die playing ‘Hot Damn!’ in full at NYC Rocks Off cruise run
Buffalo metalcore vets Every Time I Die went in a more melodic direction over time, but heavier classics like their 2003 sophomore album Hot Damn! have recently proven to be very influential, like on Knocked Loose, whose A Different Shade of Blue is one of the year's best hardcore-related albums and features a guest appearance by ETID's Keith Buckley screaming his head off like he did in the Hot Damn! days. So, if perhaps Hot Damn! is a record you've been dusting off lately, you might agree it's good timing that the band will be playing it in NYC on September 25, which is the first night of a three-night run of Rocks Off cruises. The band's announcement reads:
Next week we set sail on our yearly exploration of the Hudson River, and we’ve decided to kick things off Wednesday by playing Hot Damn! front to back. After that we’re just going to let the good times roll, Rick Ocasek style. These posters that /jordan drew will also be for sale. If you zoom in you can see the free buffet! Click this link for 1 or 2 or 3 tickets because all 3 shows sell out. Thank you.
The Friday (9/27) show and three-day passes are sold out, but you can still get tickets for the Hot Damn! show on Wednesday (9/25) and the Thursday (9/26) show.
ETID are also doing their big 'Tid the Season holiday show in Buffalo on December 13-14 with a stacked lineup that includes Against Me!, Glassjaw, The Get Up Kids, Ghostface Killah, Cave In, Terror, SeeYouSpaceCowboy, Frank Turner's hardcore band Mongol Horde, and more Two-day passes and Saturday tickets are sold out, but Friday tickets are still available.
