The headliners have been announced for the first ever Thrasher Death Match parties in NYC, which happen October 5 & 6 at Knockdown Center in Queens, and they're both local legends. Day one is being headlined by the genius (and Wu-Tang Clan member) GZA, and day two is being headlined by NYHC heroes Gorilla Biscuits. Openers are still TBA, but younger punk bands Culture Abuse and Gouge Away revealed that their tour stops at this party on the Gorilla Biscuits day.

Both shows are FREE WITH RSVP. Stay tuned for more acts TBA. The shows are co-presented by Vans, who recently had to close House of Vans Brooklyn.

UPDATE: Bands continue to gradually get added. Hank Wood and the Hammerheads and Roc Marciano are playing the GZA-headlined day, and Negative Approach and Fury are playing the GB-headlined day. Stay tuned for more.
