ANTISECT (UK Anarcho-Punk Legends)
Antisect are from England formed in 1982. Their debut album, In Darkness There is No Choice, was released in 1983. They played a significant role punk rock history, and are said to have been a major influence upon “black-clad, politically charged punks over the last 30 years”. The band addressed issues of animal rights and social justice and were among the instigators of the squat venue scene in the mid to late 1980s. Members lived the lifestyle of being either on the road or part of the vibrant London squat scene of the time. They toured extensively both in the UK and Europe, before splitting up in 1987. The band reformed in May 2011. The fact that they are touring the U.S. and playing the Triple Rock (Minneapolis, MN) on Sunday June 3rd is epic! If you live in Minneapolis or anywhere within a day’s drive we recommend going to this show.
MISERY (MPLS Crust Legends)
Misery have been making noise in Minneapolis since the late 80’s. Their music and message have been heard around the world… in fact their original vocalist, Al Long, left Misery in 1988 to join legendary New York based anarcho-punk band Nausea. Word on the street has it that he is back in town and will be on stage singing with Misery at this gig. I for one am looking forward to this!
WARTORN (Appleton, WI)
Bitty, famed PE Columnist, and co. will be headed to Minneapolis to make a special appearance at this gig and kick off their West Coast Tour with Profane label-mates IN DEFENCE.
IN DEFENCE (Mpls Pizza Crust… ???)
Local Minneapolis taco thrashers In Defence will kick things off.
If you live near Minneapolis, MN come out to the Medusa tonight and catch DEVIATED INSTINCT & DRESDEN’s last show of their U.S. Tour. Tonight they play with local ragers Kontrasekt . Help them celebrate the tour despite the recent theft of their van, gear and personal belongings. After tonight Deviate Instinct flies down to Austin to play Chaos In Tejas and then back home to the UK. Dresden heads back to Wisconsin to gear up for the WARTORN/IN DEFENCE West Coast Tour. (Yes, Dresden and Wartorn share over half of the same members!) At any rate this should be a solid show show. See you there!
Bitty’s (Dresden/PE Columnist) van and trailer (containing a guitar and bass rig) were stolen last night outside of the Deviated Instinct / Dresden show at Now That’s Class in Cleveland, OH. Both bands were traveling in the vehicle. Everybody is safe. The cops recovered the van earlier today. All gear and personal items that were in the van are gone and there was damage done to the dash board and trailer. The bands regret to inform you that they will not be making it to the show in Detroit tonight but do plan to finish out the tour in Chicago and Minneapolis. Then Deviated Instinct will fly out to play Chaos In Tejas. Bitty and the band are out thousands of dollars in damages, lost gear and personal items. If you wish to help out you can make a paypal donation to Bitty: email@example.com
