PG.99 / MAJORITY RULE / PORTRAYAL OF GUILT
Influential screamo bands Pg. 99 and Majority Rule both released tons of great material in the 2000s (including a split together in 2002), and the two bands will be hitting the road for a brief West Coast tour in April, where they'll be joined by newer screamo band Portrayal Of Guilt, whose last LP Let Pain Be Your Guide (one of our favorites of 2018) was produced by Majority Rule's Matt Michel. The tour hits Seattle, LA, Portland, San Diego, Arcata, Berkeley, and Oakland, all of these dates being benefit shows with proceeds going towards various organizations.
