Although I'd always want to say that every show we got to have this year was awesome, there were definitely a few that really stood out. Before I get into this, I want to thank all the promoters, bands, and everybody who's come out to all our shows for really making it happen this year. HAILS!!
that said, here are my 10 favorite shows we did this year:
7) SHITSTORM / POLLUTION / CURANDERA / DIVORCE MONEY - Who could argue with members of TORCHE and CAPSULE playing amazing grind? This band destroyed for a blistering 15 minute set. I could have watched them all day. Not to diminish POLLUTION, who put out one of the best LPs of the year, and killed it on our stage 4 times this year.
9) EASY ACTION / PREGNANT / THE MEN - dirty. but in just the right way. That's the only way to describe Detroit's EASY ACTION . They rocked out as hard as i've ever seen anyone, and they did it as drunk as i've seen anyone. what a blowout.
10) BEER & CABLE / HELLBENT HOOKER / BORN LOOSE / UNSCATHED - Beer & Cable have been without a doubt my favorite punk band in NYC for some time. Their irreverent, silly, and stop-on-a-dime hardcore is so much fun you can't contain yourself. Also T-Bone had his dick out the entire HELLBENT HOOKER set. So there are no pictures. Just imagine that for yourself.
