Terror, Fucked Up, Power Trip, Code Orange Kids

When: Wed., Oct. 9, 7:30 p.m. 2013

Tonight's double-headlining show features two aptly named pillars of the hardcore genre. My first time seeing Terror, I watched from the side as chaos erupted after a few macho tough guys in the audience were confronted for their violence. Once the dust settled, the LA band was quick to continue their set, this time with nearly twice the energy. A few years later I watched as Toronto's Fucked Up had a show cut short by police. The band was headlining a state university festival, and lead singer Damian Abraham was accused of attempting to start a riot when he went into the crowd to get the fans involved, and tore down stage barriers that were getting in the way. Shows centered on music this fast and abrasive can be difficult things to control, but both bands champion the belief that they need be built on pure positive energy to function and be enjoyed.
