Limp Wrist
Limp Wrist
Limp Wrist is a United States punk rock band, formed in Albany, New York in 1998. Featuring members of Los Crudos, Hail Mary, Devoid of Faith, and Kill the Man Who Questions, the band plays short, fast hardcore music, and covers themes concerning the gay community in their live performances and lyrics. They identify as part of the "queercore" punk subculture: referring to their style of music, the band declared in Frontiers magazine, "We put the 'core' back in 'Queercore'".

Soul Glo
Soul Glo
Soul Glo are a self ­described “aggressive” band from Philadelphia. “Aggressive” typifies their presence in multiple senses: their first release is an untitled 13­track LP of sonically diverse exploration of all of the best themes of extreme music. Covering ground that journeys from hardcore punk to black metal with welcome experiences of powerviolence, screamo, and grindcore, the band applies aggression in a much more direct and urgent sense lyrically, describing “the experience of the Black american,” as their priority. “Aggressive” doesn’t just apply to their open politics but also the ease with which the message spreads to the ears of anyone who daily walks with the burden of “social other” on their back. It’s a replenishment of the body’s water in a drought, both revealing and satisfying a need for truth that one doesn’t know they possess. In the same places they find inspiration, the members of Soul Glo see desperate need for change. They have little interest in simply providing the world with more color-by-numbers hardcore songs, and instead focus on the politics of identity and experience in an increasingly dystopian america.
S-21 (Last Show)
S-21 (Last Show)
S-21 are one of Philadelphia’s best hardcore punk outfits making music right now. With their “Year Zero” EP, they’ve drummed up four new songs that are a natural follow-up to the four tracks on their demo tape. S-21 create mid-tempo punk with pummeling riffs and powerful vocal delivery. Four cuts to stomp around to.

Words from Cella (vocals): "42 years ago, the Khmer Rouge commenced one of the most brutal genocides in history, deeming it as Year Zero, a total eradication of its own past, people, traditions, and advancement. Their four years in power claimed two million victims, including multiple members of my own family. With President-elect Trump's impending presidency and its fear-driven politics, with threats of mass deportation, mass incarceration and innumerable attacks on black and brown bodies everyday, and taking in some of our own experiences as women of color, my bandmates and I can't help but think that another Year Zero-like era is looming. The past few months have been extremely trying for a lot of us and it's hard to fathom what the next four years will bring. It is clear we still have a lot of work to do, but with this band, I feel more empowered than ever. Thank you to everyone who has ever supported us and for giving me the courage and strength to find my voice."
