It's hard to imagine a better pairing than Sacramento thrash-core cyclones Trash Talk with classic hardcore purists Off! The former owes everything in their musical lineage to Off! frontman Keith Morris, who arguably invented hardcore punk with his '70s band, Black Flag (a band that Off! resembles). Trash Talk have a high-strung cathartic energy that's wholly their own, and what they'll likely share tonight is another invention of early hardcore: a sweaty, smelly mosh pit. With Cerebral Ballzy.
