Coming all the way from Pilsen is MELKBELLY, a refreshing throwback to thrashy, crunchy noise-rock. The Melkers have been one of the hottest names in town since releasing their album Pennsylvania in 2014, via Automatic Recordings, and are definitely a staff favorite around these parts. They always turn that shit up to 11 whenever they hit the stage and we can't wait to see how they kick this shitstorm into high gear tonight.Can anyone tell us what the hell is going on in Toronto? That city,home to some of the friendliest folks around, has been consistently pumping out some of the gnarliest (and best) punk and hardcore for about as long as we can remember. Maybe it's the rough winters, maybe it's the crack-smoking mayor, or maybe they're all just sick of being known as our "friendly neighbors to the north" - who knows. Carrying the tattered flag of their forebearers, HSY (pronounced "hussy") has produced an onslaught of grimy, noisy sludge-punk since first forming in 2011, as seen on a handful of tapes and their debut, self-titled EP. They haven't been around these parts since they headlined in November 2014, and we feel lucky as hell to have them back! Opening this evening is Local freak-punk duo EARRING have been known to create quite a stir whenever they hit our stage.
