The Menzingers at Riot Fest Brooklyn 2012 (more by Chris La Putt)
As discussed, Philly punks The Menzingers are heading out on a tour this year, and since we last spoke they've been added to the NYC stop of the Lucero and Titus Andronicus tour, which happens on November 8 at Terminal 5. That makes three bands with an equal knack for punk and classic, folk-style songwriting on one bill. Tickets for the T5 show are still available, and we're also giving away a pair. Contest details and updated flyer below.
The Menzingers also headline their own previously mentioned NYC show on November 29 at Bowery Ballroom, which is now sold out. Since we last spoke, openers have been announced for that show too, including scrappy emo band Modern Baseball (who just played the Run for Cover CMJ showcase), Jersey City punks Banquets, and Philly post-hardcore noodlers Ma Jolie. All dates are listed, along with the updated flyer, below.
Banquets, probably the most likeminded band on the bill to The Menzingers, recently released their self-titled sophomore album via Black Numbers (the same label that put out the new Placeholder album). If you like Jersey punk bands that are very much "Jersey punk bands" or Hot Water Music, you might dig this record. You can stream it below. All of their dates, including a NJ show with The Swellers and Candy Hearts tonight (10/22) and a NJ show in November with Restorations (who also play NJ with Bouncing Souls), are listed below too.
All Menzingers dates are listed, along with a full set video from the Orlando stop on their tour with Restorations and those show flyers, below...
