This afternoon (presumably all-ages) matinee is a celebration of all things loud, fast, and stoopid mostly played by dudes old enough to know better but smart enough not to care. The explosive Violent Bullshit features dudes from classic hardcore/grindcore bands (Orchid, Black Army Jacket) retreating back into an ejaculatory, faster-than-thou powerviolence. Western Mass noise-punks Whorfrost and Brooklyn’s sloppy Red Dawn II play classic punk blast with a case of the contemporary noise dude fuck-it-alls. With Pollution, Battletorn and Broccoli Destroyer.
