Win A Ticket To The Black N Blue Bowl @ The Well On 5/17 or 5/18

Poster - Black N Blue Bowl - 2014

The Details: The Black N Blue Bowl is the Superbowl of Hardcore music and from beginning to end there is not another event like this one. Over the course of this coming weekend’s two days we will see over twenty five bands taking to the stage for an all-day affair that that is going to leave its audience exhausted and possibly black and blue. Oh I see what you guys did there. Clever. Anyway, this years event finds Hatebreed and Discharge closing out the Friday and Saturday night events and the great Agnostic Front have assembled their “Cause For Alarm” lineup who will perform exclusively on both nights. How cool is that? We’ll also have Biohazard, Ludichrist, Sworn Enemy and more which I have listed for you below in order of their performance schedule. Headliners down is how I’ve presented this by the way.

Day One: Sat, May 17th, 2014: Hatebreed, Agnostic Front, Biohazard, Ludichrist, All Out War, Stigmata, Minus 1, Darkside NYC, Naysayer, Sworn Enemy, Brick By Brick, Brain Slug, Friend Or Foe, Numbskull

Sun, May 18th, 2014: Discharge, Agnostic Front, 7 Seconds, Kraut, Take Offense, Beyond, Suburban Scum, Power Trip, Incendiary, Against The Grain, Criminal Instinct, Manipulate, Heavy Chains, Caught In A Trap

Now thanks to those promotional powers that be behind the scenes of this monster event, PiercingMetal is going to put a few fans into each day of this event. That’s right, I am giving away a few tickets to each of these two shows. Read more below.

When and Where: Sat 5/17 & Sun 5/18 @ The Well at 1pm (272 Meserole Street Brooklyn, NY)

To Participate: Give me three reasons why some of these bands matter so much to you or what about the Hardcore sound brings you the fire that cannot be easily tamed and I will be selecting three winners for each days show. It does not hurt to stress at the beginning of your comment about which show you wish to attend the most. Otherwise I will decide and be aware that you can only win for one show. I will be replying to the comments directly if you win. Please enter only once (as no edits will be honored) and put your full real name and a working email address in the comment form (but not in your comment for privacy reasons) to be sure you can be reached if necessary with show details. Guest and Anonymous submissions will not count and this contest will end when the supplies run out. Bring it on. This is an all-ages show in case you wondered.

Restrictions: While all contests are open to our regional site readers, Twitter Followers and Facebook Page Likers you should know that we tend to look at new responders first in order to give everyone a fair shot at enjoying a show on the provider and us. I will say that the biggest restriction on this one is that if you have won anything over the last couple of months that your chances are less likely because we surely cannot have the same people winning again and again.

  1. I would really love to see hatebreed because I’ve been listening to them since high school and have never had a chance to see them live , their music is powerful aggressive and amazing . They’ve been a big part in my life when I was at a low point and to see them would be amazing

    1. Congratulations Mike, you are going to the Black N Blue Bowl for the Saturday show. While I noticed you only mentioned Hatebreed, I encourage you to take advantage of as much of this event as possible. Stay tuned for the full on details about how you claim it at the show.

  2. For Day One Saturday 5/17

    1. Agnostic Front – never got to see the “Cause For Alarm” lineup and it is one of my all time fave AF records.

    2. Hatebreed – I love the debut record and I have not seen Hatebreed live in years!

    3. All Out War – One of the best Metalcore bands of all time, they matter now more than ever! Glad to see them back in NYC!

    1. Congratulations Mike, you are going to the Black N Blue Bowl for the Saturday show. Clearly some greatness of Hardcore awaits all that attend. I encourage you to take advantage of as much of this event as possible. Stay tuned for the full on details about how you claim it at the show.

  3. I have such an intense passion for ‘Hardcore’ music. Ever since I was 15, listening to hardcore was always my escape from stress and the daily grind. There’s something really special about the NYC Hardcore sound, it’s completely different, rare, dirtier, underground, and just f***ing AMAZING.

    1. Can’t really edit this comment but I wanted to include, I would kill to be there on BOTH days. It’s a tough choice. Tons of amazing bands, but if I had to choose one.. Day 1(Saturday) would be my pick. Good luck everyone.

    2. Congratulations Janice, you are going to the BnB Bowl on Saturday, please stay tuned for the full details on how you claim this at the show.

      1. RAHH!! So kickass, Thanks you guys at Piercingmetal!!! m/ Have a wonderful day Ken!

  4. Saturday, May 17, 2014 would be great.

    Being new to this city it would be great to see legendary NYC hardcore bands suck as Biohazard and Agnostic Front.

    Never been to this Bushwick venue, it would be great to check it out and have a bunch of beers at the well.

    Hardcore metal shows are always entertaining as long as you don’t get hurt in the pit.


  5. Well, well, well.

    1. Never saw Discharge, the band started the year i was born, wow!

    2. An all day and night event, that’s always a plus.

    3. Venue is very close to my house 🙂

    Sunday, May 18 would be great.

    1. Hey Stefan looks like you will not be traveling far to see some Hardcore then on Sunday since you have won a ticket to the show. Please stay tuned for the details on this on how you claim it at the event.

  6. Hey that’s it my fine feathered friends, our contest for the Black N Blue Bowl for 2014 is officially closed. Thank you all for submissions and congrats to our winners. On the day of each of these shows, go to the box office and ask for the event guest list at the door where you check in. Should you encounter any issues, please politely ask for an onsite manager and cite how this contest was done in coordination with event publicity team and – Remember that this show starts super early and offers a LOT of music to you so try to catch as much as possible or risk missing out.
