Brooklyn Vegan, in conjunction with 1000 Knives and Chronic Youth, The Hope Conspiracy, Blacklisted, United Nations, and Mother of Mercy at Cake Shop on Jan 15th! The date is one of a select few for HopeCon, and the only east coast date scheduled so far. No advanced tickets. Stay tuned for giveaways to what may be the first must-see hardcore show of the new year.
The Hope Conspiracy released the True Nihilist 7" earlier this year on Deathwish. Their last LP was 2006's Death Knows Your Name.
Blacklisted played Santos Party House on 10/24 along with Bane, Maximum Penalty, Cold World, and a host of others as part of the Deathwish - Chronic Youth Day Party at Santos Party House. Blacklisted shares members with the incredible Mother of Mercy who recently played Cake Shop with Iron Age. We profiled Mother of Mercy here.
United Nations is a supergroup of sorts, featuring Thursday's Geoff Rickly playing what is described as "emo powerviolence". The Hopecon show isn't the only one that United Nations has lined up, as the band is also scheduled to play Starland Ballroom with Glassjaw, Dillinger Escape Plan, and Rickly's main squeeze, Thursday. Tickets go on sale at noon on 10/30. The show is part of a larger tour. All dates below
