Thrasher Death Match took over Queens' massive Knockdown Center this weekend, with multiple stages, a giant skate ramp and more. Saturday was a little more indie rock leaning (Sunday was more metal/hardcore), and was headlined by Beach Fossils who came out to a mock SNL intro and finished the night in similar fashion, complete with a Don Pardo-style announcer. The day also featured Detroit's Protomartyr, who came down just for this show and played a few new songs, plus Ceremony (who played Saint Vitus later that night), Downtown Boys (who will be back in NYC in November), Show Me the Body,  Mannequin Pussy, Slayter, and more. Check out pics from the whole day in the gallery above.

Sunday of Death Match had sets from Obituary, Agnostic Front, Haram, and more. Stay tuned for pics from that.
