Pat Troxell, drummer for grungy psych-folk four-piece Creepoid
, has always proudly and fondly discussed his love for and involvement with the hardcore scene during the days of his misspent youth hanging around West Philly’s Killtime and Stalag 13. While Creepoid continues the destruction of their instruments on stage and their ascent in the Philly indie music scene, Troxell has also found another way to release his youthful aggression and angst by fronting recently formed hardcore outfit Heathen Reign
, which is also comprised of members and ex-members from Orchid, Bucket Full of Teeth and Brain Dead. Now, we all know that this is the type of shit you want to experience live as sweaty body parts collide against you with reckless abandon like what you are sure to experience tonight at The Level Room when they share a bill with Santa Ana’s NASA Space Universe and Mainline Cocksuckers. Come out and test your survival skills! The Level Room, 2102 Market St., 8pm, $7, 21+ - Alexis V.
