Hardcore vets Negative Approach have been active this year, playing cool festivals like Maryland Deathfest and The Fest, and they have a couple of shows coming up.

Thursday (12/1), catch NA in Boston for a show at Hardcore Stadium with Waste Management, Chaos Cross, Hardware, Rare Form, and Malcontent.

Then Friday (12/2) it's a small NYC gig at new-ish Bushwick bar Goldsounds, with Drunken Rampage, Absolute Power, Haram and Sick Head opening. Tickets are on sale.

Meanwhile, John Brannon's other band Easy Action is opening for Dinosaur Jr. on Wednesday (11/30) at Irving Plaza, the first of two nights at Irving for the headliner (but 12/1 is being opened by Luluc).

Listen to NA's only album, 1983's Tied Down, below:
