+HIRS+ Opening for F.O.D. at Golden Tea House Dec. 15

It just makes absolute sense that Philly area hardcore legends F.O.D. (a.k.a. Flag of Democracy) are headlining Golden Tea House tonight. It’s also pretty damn amazing to have these local underground warhorses of thirty-plus years anoint the beloved West Philly DIY space. And you’ll find them in good company alongside a fine representation of the city’s next generation of basement destroyers. Philly queer thrashers +HIRS+ will be releasing rapid-fire drumbeats, slash-n-burn guitar riffs, and war-cry wails that could inspire revolution. “NO GODS // NO COPS // NO BROS” - sounds like utopia to me! Golden Tea House, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 7:30pm, All Ages - Alexis V.
Update: +HIRS+ dropped off the bill, and has been replaced by Ex Friends. 

On Message w/+HIRS+ at LAVA Space March 27

+HIRS+ are nothing if not a timely act to go see at LAVA Space tonight, given that the country is anxiously awaiting the outcome of the Supreme Court’s hearings on gay marriage. Their bilious cocktail of grind, thrash and occult symbols is never anything but on message, and that message is one of unrelenting, politically-charged rage. Subjecting yourself to their monster opus/compendium The First 100 Songs, aside from feeling oddly purifying in its sheer violence, reveals a clever way with samples, a drummer straight from hell, and a truly rotten (in the best way) sense of humor. If the grind onslaught exhausts you, The Joint Chiefs of Math and Forest Kingdom are there, with slightly less punishing repertoires for you to take a breather. LAVA Space, (Please contact one of the acts or the venue for more info.), 8pm, $3 - $5, All Ages. - Alyssa Greenberg
