Monday 04 July 2016
at The Mr. Roboto Project, 5106 Penn Ave, Pittsburgh 15224
ALL AGES, 7:00 pm (doors 6:30), $10
After a long holiday weekend full of fireworks and partying (and, perhaps, checking out a bunch of bands Sunday night), surely the last thing anyone needs would be ANOTHER show Monday night — when all of us will already have a tough enough time dragging ourselves back to work the next morning as it is. Especially one that features a whopping
THREE FOUR(!!) co-headliners (any one of which would be a huge deal if they came to town on their own) who are pretty much guaranteed to smash your brains to bits. And when you throw in two perennial local favorites, plus a special holiday menu of vegetarian fare available from Onion Maiden? Yeah.
Anyway, so Steel Bridge Promotions are bringing all of that to you on Independence Day, and I wouldn’t be surprised if this ends up with buildings exploding just like in the movie of the same name. This will surely be a spectacle not to be missed. Pre-sale tickets are available right now at their Big Cartel page… but for the next two weeks, you can WIN a pair of tickets for FREE, courtesy of Steel Bridge Promotions and Valley of Steel! Keep on reading to learn more…
Ultra-mysterious experimentalists Dragged into Sunlight (UK, Prosthetic Records), punishing gutter-sludge misanthropes Primitive Man (Denver, CO, Relapse Records), and hateful chaotic hardcore ensemble (with former members of Gaza) Cult Leader (SLC, UT, Deathwish Inc.) are all descending upon the steel city on the fourth of July, joined by acclaimed hometown blackened hardcore band Slaves BC and local harsh noise unit Pregnant Nun. Update 27 June: Seattle’s Wilt has also been added to the show. An example of their music (the 2015 album Reclamation which you can download for free), and relevant links where you can learn more about them, have all been inserted among the other bands’ information down below …
Personally, I can attest to at least two of these bands putting on an amazing show: Cult Leader came to town back in July 2014 alongside Belgian labelmates Oathbreaker, and they both completely killed. And of course, Slaves BC are always enjoyable. But this whole line-up seems totally stacked — I’m really excited to check out Primitive Man, whose 2015 album Home is where the Hatred Is made its way onto my list of that year’s best releases, but the sheer variety involved here will really make for an interesting experience.
You can listen to each of the bands, and check out links to learn more about all of them, below — and don’t forget to enter for a chance for you and a friend to see them all for FREE!
