As if the excitement wasn’t high enough for one Choking Victim show in New York City on June 14, Scenic Presents decided to hit the Big Apple off with another dose of Crack Rock Steady on June 15. The Friday night lineup was already completely ridiculous with the Crack Rock Steady originators being joined by The Pist, All Torn Up, Trashy, and Eve Minor. But the Saturday night rowdy down has to be one of the best punk lineups to hit the Empire City in a decade and it’s all devoid of corporate dollars as all Scenic shows are.
For the second night of musical mayhem, Scenic went out and tapped the otherworldly entertaining World/Inferno Friendship Society, Philadelphia heavy-hitters Soul Glo, New Jersey’s wildest in Crazy & the Brains, and Wisconsin’s own folk-punks We the Heathens. Anyone of these bands as direct support for Choking Victim is already an unbelievably stacked bill, but all of them together following what is a wild lineup on the June 14th show … it’s like true love, this doesn’t happen every day.
Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door, and they will be on sale tomorrow. This one is going to sell out so get ’em early. … can you hear that? It’s the WIFS faithful chanting “Tonight, we’re gonna, fuck shit up!” before Jack and Scott lead an uproarious crowd in obliterating Bushwick’s Market Hotel.
