The Cro-Mags are legends of the NYHC scene and are considered one of the first groups to showcase elements of Thrash Metal into their Hardcore Punk sound. Back in 1986 when they first released “The Age Of Quarrel”, the NYHC scene was as much a lifestyle as it was a musical movement. This show will surely bring their sound to new and legacy fans and also deliver tunes fromSheer Terror, Brain Slug, Rude Awakening and Born Annoying. Lace up those boots my friends, it is going to be a swirling pit in the venue for this one and thanks to the fine folks at Highline Ballroom some of the PiercingMetal Fans are going to get to see the show for free.
To Participate: This is our last contest of the Musical Year 2012 so I will make it an easy one. With the great bands that are playing, I just want to know what the Cro-Mags and the whole NYHC movement mean to you as a fan of this kind of music. I will be selecting winners from the responders and replying right to their topical comment to let them know they won.
When & Where: Sunday December 30th, 5pm @ Highline Ballroom (431 West 16th Street NYC)
Restrictions: All PiercingMetal Contests are open to regional area music fans but if you have won something recently we shall be looking at other entries first to give everyone a fair chance at seeing a show on us.
