Negative Approach

Midwest hardcore greats Negative Approach have been hitting the road hard in recent years, and this continues to be the case as the band is currently in Europe for an October tour ahead of some US dates. Aside from playing Housecore Horror Festival in November and MDF next year, Negative Approach are playing a bunch of US headlining dates with Child Bite.

One of those dates happens in NYC at The Acheron on November 29 with more support TBA. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All upcoming dates for Negative Approach, as well as a video of them playing in Baltimore last year, are below.

Meanwhile, Child Bite will hit that same venue much sooner on their tour with KEN mode, which lands at the Acheron on Friday (10/9). Since we last spoke, The Austerity Program and Garrett Jamieson have been added. But The Austerity Program won't only be playing music. They'll also be, uh, giving a powerpoint presentation called "Bands We Are Accused Of Ripping Off: An emperical exploration by the Austerity Program." Here's how they put it:

Feeling their alpha-Poindexter status threatened by visiting Canadians/ex-accoutants (really) KEN Mode, the Austerity Program double down. They're threatening to deliver a truly punishing set - interspersing their high-volume drum machine whallop with an equally abrasive PowerPoint presentation. [...] each of those swooshing wipe slide changes that seem to cool to a 1st time PPT user will get heavy play on Friday night's Acheron show. This may be opening up a new chapter in extreme metal shows, although we're not sure it's a welcome development. You've been warned.

Well there you have it. Tickets for Friday's show are still available.
