Pollution, White Lung, Shards, Double Negative, Thieves

When: Sat., June 12, 9 p.m. 2010

New York hardcore has always seemed heavier, like the city's density manifests itself in slowed-down stomps and riffs as thick as shoulder meat. That tendency ought to account for the weighty, Neurosis-like fog that permeates Pollution's squealing brand of pissed. Their coed Canadian tour mates, White Lung, sound more excitable, smacking bored pop melodies over slashing guitars like Bikini Kill and Drunkdriver butting heads for fun. Double Negative brings the filth and fury, shearing sheets of noise like wool from Minor Threat's black sheep. Shards play hardcore like it's 1977; Thieves play it like it's the last thing they'll ever do. —Bryan Reed
