I have a confession to make: I’ve been unapologetically listening to Andrew W.K since I was in high school and yet somehow never managed to see him play live. The closest I got was when he came around Philly to play I Get Wet in it’s entirety a few years back, but I opted to […]
Man… I am so fucking late with this post. With my current limited screen time it’s been really hard to keep up, but better late than never right? ANYWAYS: I bought tickets in advance for one of the most rad/bizarre shows I’ve ever been to. In all of their weirdness, psychedelic noise grind punks An […]
This past Friday, as us Americans watched a narcissistic sociopath con his way into the White House (I’m just waiting for him to plaster his stupid fucking name in gaudy ass letters above it like he does all of his buildings), I headed to my favorite stomping grounds The Barbary to catch local legends The […]
I like my hardcore like I like my sex: spontaneous, noisy, and no time for fucking cuddling. An Albatross’s 2001 debut Eat Lightning Shit Thunder delivers exactly that, and then some. Playing some of the most sporadic music that the genre has to offer, these Wilkes-Barre (now Philadelphia) dudes are able to cram in more […]
Wilkes-Barre (now Philadelphia’s) PA’s pyscho hardcore circus An Albatross recently played a free show in Philly on the 4th of July, and I was out of town… fucking figures. I’ve been listening to these dudes a lot as of late, and their 2003 release We Are The Lazer Viking is a complete face, mind, and […]
A few weeks ago, I headed out to Philly’s intimate dive The Barbary to catch Ratkicker who was opening for Die Choking with a pretty stacked lineup. It’s been about 3 years since I’ve seen these Philly punks, and since they were up first I made sure to get there nice and early. Ratkicker: It’s […]
Tuesday night, I was suffering from a pretty bad headache and just overall felt under the weather. Figuring the only cure was incredibly loud grindcore, I headed out to Philadelphia’s Kung Fu Necktie on a whim, as I found out about the show about 4 hours before heading out. I got to Kung Fu Necktie […]
I’ve been listening to OFF! since their inception nearly 5 years ago, and have never got the chance to see them. I’ve seen energetic Keith Morris (Black Flag/Circle Jerks) live when he came around touring with Flag, but was stoked to finally catch him with OFF. The fact they were playing the intimate (albeit insanely […]
Last week, on a random Tuesday night I headed out to Philadelphia’s Barbary to catch local grind band Fantasy Panther open for what has been dubbed the real life Spinal Tap metal band Anvil. I’ll be the first to admit I didn’t know much about Anvil going into the show as I’ve never seen The […]
This past Thursday I headed out to Philly’s small club The Barbary to catch a grindcore/powerviolence show. The place had a decent amount of people in it for a random winter Thursday night, and while I unfortunately missed some of the openers (especially Boroughs, from what I’ve heard of them, they’re fucking sick), I was […]
