Fucked Up, Total Abuse, Brain Killer, Manipulation 

When: Fri., July 17, 10 p.m. 2009
Price: $12
Tonight’s headliners, Fucked Up, have spent the past few years elevating hardcore punk to the status of art music—adding piles of overdubs, stretching songs far past the three-minute mark—but these Austin boys are perfectly content down at gutter level. Their no-frills blasts of screaming and riffage hark back to a time when for every VFW hall there were at least three bands with a copy of Black Flag’s Damaged and a laundry list of reasons why society was totally fucked-up. Between Total Abuse and the crusty Boston throwbacks in Brain Killer, this show should be heavenly for dudes who think $500 is a reasonable price for an original Agnostic Front seven-inch. Fucked Up also play Saturday at Pitchfork; Total Abuse, Brain Killer, and Manipulation open. —Miles Raymer
