Anal Cunt, Anal Blast, Morgue Supplier, Moral Decay, Hate, Jonestown Choir 

When: Wed., May 6, 9 p.m. 2009
Price: donation requested
My high school friends and I considered ourselves punk contrarians par excellence, but when we saw Anal Cunt’s 1994 Earache Records debut, Everyone Should Be Killed, with its gleefully violent cover photograph and 58 snarkily titled songs (“When I Think of True Punk Rock Bands, I Think of Nirvana and the Melvins,” “You Must Be Wicked Underground If You Own This”), we realized we were rank amateurs. One of us eventually worked up the guts to buy the thing, giving all of us our first exposure to the punishing blur of subhuman metal noise known as grindcore. Fifteen years later, I still find that a regular dose of grind helps keep me sane—and I still think that “Living Colour Is My Favorite Black Metal Band” (from 1994’s Top 40 Hits) is a hilarious thing to name a song. Anal Blast, Morgue Supplier, Moral Decay, Hate, and the Jonestown Choir open. —Miles Raymer
