Smash It Dead Fest Day 1: Curmudgeon, +HIRS+, Hard Nips, Ursula @ Democracy Center

Fri, Jun 19 2015 8:00 pm - 11:55 pm

$10 – $20

Tonight at the Democracy Center SMASH IT DEAD Fest kicks off it’s fifth annual weekend of shows, workshops and readings over three days in Cambridge. Besides being one of the area’s best yearly live offerings, all the performers and participants are here to raise awareness and funds for the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center. NECKLACING was just added to the bill and will be opening the evening with a delivery of gratuitous sonic violence. This will continue as fellow locals URSULA take the stage and strips things back down to two-piece mayhem, very straight to the point and uncomfortable, and that’s a good thing. Heading up from Brooklyn/Japan four piece HARD NIPS take post-punk revival indie and cranks it out on heavy metal inspired guitars and pop melodies. After five years as staples of the powerviolence scene, CURMODGEON will be playing their last show EVER and you can expect they will be going out in spirit for SID. Finally +HIRS+ of Philly will close the night and I can’t recommend enough; if you like your thrash queer and your grind fast, all the better. All three nights are going to be insane but do not sleep on this one, SMASH IT DEAD is one of the best opportunities to foster the kind of shows and scene you want to be part of and support the underrepresented in music.
