MRR Presents: FIRST QUARTER STORM, ¿Y QUE?, VWLS and THE EDOMITES at The Knockout in SF, Thurs. March 12th!

March 1st, 2015 by

All the bands featured on this show are connected to or released by Aklasan Records, a small DIY label from the Bay Area that puts out punk, hardcore and Oi bands from the Philippines and by Filipino Americans. Each band is connected to the small but prolific Filipino or Pinoy punk scene in SF, NYC, SoCal and Toronto, and most, if not all, are connected to the Philippine punk scene. ¿Y QUE? is a trio of Latin@ punks from the East Bay that share the same space/struggle with those in the Pinoy punk scene.

FIRST QUARTER STORM: Vegan straight edge metallic hardcore for the new National Democratic Philippine Revolution.

¿Y QUE?: Inglés y Spanish three-piece East Bay hardcore punk band. Gritos de resistencia, injusticias, fallas y superaciones.

VWLS: Hardcore punk sludge, dark and simple, from San Jose.

THE EDOMITES: Free jazz/noise duo out of SF/Oakland. Heavy improv, DIY electronics, noise and groove.

MRR Presents: DIESEL DUDES, LEUCROTA, ACRYLICS and OUTSIDE LOOKING IN at The Knockout in SF, Wed. Feb 11th!

February 1st, 2015 by

Here comes another MRR Presents show in San Francisco! This February we have 3 bands from out of Bay Area: OUTSIDE LOOKING IN is the new generation of hardcore from Chico, California (they are also the minds behind Xerox Records and Basement of Frustration show spot). ACRYLICS guys come from Santa Rosa, California and present a discordant freak punk sound. LEUCROTA has a super intense crusty hardcore set and they also book shows in Santa Cruz, California (Have you ever watched The Lost Boys? Yea, that’s the town!). The only local band is DIESEL DUDES from Oakland and they play an industrial/electro punk: no instruments, only computer and synthesizer!

Wed., February 11th at the Knockout, 9pm
