Long-running West Coast grindcore group (or powerviolence group, if you acknowledge that grindcore could come across even more dystopian) Despise You make their New York debut tonight, alongside Washington D.C.s always excellent graffiti-enthused Magrudergrind, a bass-less trio that reps the genre to the point of putting it in their name. Expect lightning-fast drums, static-laden guitars, and inscrutable lyrics about the devolution. With more of the same from Defeatist, the Communion and Chainsaw to the Face.
