HOLY SH*T! HAVE YOU SEEN THE F*CKING LINEUP FOR THE 2011 BLACK N BLUE BOWL?!
Gorilla Biscuits, Agnostic Front, Sick Of It All, Terror, Absolution, Antidote, Maximum Penalty, Backtrack, Down To Nothing, No Turning Back, Take Offense and Bottom Out. Every single one of these bands i scheduled to play what is arguably the best damn daylong hardcore event of 2011: the Black N Blue Bowl! The names at the very top of that bill should send hardcore devotees of all ages into violent ecstatic seizures. We’re not likely to see a Gorilla Biscuits reunion last very long and, after a breathtaking Victim In Pain tour and a newly released LP, Agnostic Front are rejuvenated. Sick Of It All’s recent sold-out anniversary gig at Webster Hall–the very venue the Bowl is held at–was epic, and Terror are destined to bring the pain.
May 28, 2011 at New York’s Webster Hall: This is a must-attend event, people!
While advance tickets are no longer available, in true NYHC spirit there will be a fair number of tickets at the door for walk-ups. Locals can also try to score a ticket from shops like Generation Records and NYHC Tattoos. Honestly, this lineup at least matches last year’s incredible one (when Cro-Mags and Madball were the co-headliners), and chronic illness or abject poverty should be the only reasons why you couldn’t go this time.
