"Meet Endless Boogie, the best-kept secret in New York's rock scene. They have the best name (taken from John Lee Hooker's 1971 album), the best onstage vibe and the best head-nodding jams. In a sea of derivative and freshly outfitted young bands, Endless Boogie -- with a combined age of 169 and members who count Canned Heat as one of their influences -- doesn't have a big agenda. They just want to rock with you, preferably all night long. "We try boogie sometimes, but boogie's hard," says guitarist Jesper Eklow (aka "The Governor") self-effacingly. "Boogie takes skill and we haven't honed those skills yet." The band's sound is a meltdown of metal, psychedelic and classic rock with a heavy dose of riffage, a kick-ass beat and super-cryptic lyrics. It's thunderous and mellow at once. To put it another way, it goes well with beer. Aside from Eklow, the band is made up of Paul Major (aka "Top Dollar," left) on guitar and vocals, Memories from Reno (right) on bass and Chris Gray (aka "Grease Control," second from right) on drums. Needless to say, their collective knowledge of music is so expansive it's a little scary. Endless Boogie played their first show in January of 2001 when their friend Steven Malkmus asked them to open for him at the Bowery Ballroom. Since then, they've been "working on improving." The band has two as-yet-untitled new albums coming out on Subliminal Sounds and No Quarter Records this summer." Carol Lee, Papermag (2006)

New band with a long pedigree of Philadelphia metal/grind/doom/power violence history. Featuring members and ex members of Cop Problem. The commitment to all things scuzzy, is proven. Highly recommended if you were a fan of long time greats such as Assück, Crossed Out, and early Napalm Death.

In 2015 founding members of Philadelphia band “Thee Citadel” Bob Hughes, Jason Carr and Chris Elliott scored a new vocalist, Damian Gioia (Necropolis, Live Suffer Die, Unscarred). However, with the new vocalist came a new sound and a need for a new start for the band of more than 20 years. A new name seemed like the final step in the now, “Ämnivór’s” new beginning. Vocalist, Gioia said it best, “We felt we needed a new beginning. And changing the name was the way to get out of our own shadow.”www.facebook.com/SincetheFire

It is time for the 3rd Annual Metal for Mikki show! As always, we expect it to be one of the highlights of our year! For those who haven't been to one of our events before, Music for Mikki was started in 2012 after Mikki was diagnosed with an incurable, debilitating, chronic pain condition called RSD/CRPS. With her unable to walk and with insurance not covering most treatments, we held a beef and beer to help cover expenses. Then, the local metal community stepped up and asked how they could help so we added the Metal for Mikki show to our annual beef and beer. Now, we have expanded to the point where we are reaching out and helping other RSD patients with their treatment related expenses. And, once again, the local metal bands have stepped up to offer their help.

If yer from New Orleans, you may remember this band in its most primitive form around 2000, with vocals courtesy of Mike Bevis (Gimp, Star of Kaos), Holly Peters (ex-Hawg Jaw) on bass, Paul Webb (Spickle, Mountain of Wizard, Clearlight) on drums, and Gary Mader (Hawg Jaw, Eyehategod, Outlaw Order) on guitar. Fast forward six or seven years. under the same name, drummer Paul Webb and guitarist Gary Mader reform the band as a recording project that would "do as little as possible" over an indefinite period of time. After assembling a full set over the course of three or four years, in fall 2010, Grant Tom (HAARP, Da Capa Preta, Mountain of Wizard) joined on bass, and the final addition, Matt Muscle (Mangina, TIREFIRE) joined several months before their first show in Oct 2011.
American post-punk/art rock band formed in 2005 in Detroit, Michigan, currently signed with Joyful Noise Recordings.

Philly - avante-garde - psychedlic - black metal 'Cavern Apothecary' was a glimpse into the potential this band had at that point. On ‘Tapered Limbs of a Human Star’, they've smashed through the glass ceiling and surpassed the promise they showed. The fact that they're signed to Anthropic Records is both a blessing and a curse; it makes those who know about the band seem like part of a secret club and preserves their cult status. However, had this been released on a label like Relapse, Profound Lore or Candlelight, everyone would be losing their shit and proclaiming this as the best album they've heard this year. It’s simply stunning. - The Sludgelord

Awarded the honor of "scariest band name ever" by Decibel Magazine, Backwoods Payback is certainly out to make an impression. These three dudes and one gal from West Chester claim to make bootie shaking head nodding music with a slow and low tempo. With listed influences like whiskey, arm wrestling, and Black Sabbath, this is definitely not a show you want to miss.https://www.facebook.com/GOZU666/
