The_Network Don't Like Hipster Purses
When people came closer to the band, the New Hampshire five-piece assaulted the crowd -- literally. The moments of absolute chaos (of which there were many) left me in the dark. Both guitarists lifted off the set with their teeth grinding on their strings. Vocalist Mike McGee spread his stage to as far back as his mic cord allowed him.
"Sometimes we like playing old ones we really like. Sometimes we like playing new ones we really like," McGee told the crowd as he was running out of breath from screaming.
For one song, Smash McKenny (guest vocalist and tour manager) emerged from the crowd. In a blink, half her face was bloodied. With a mic in her hand, McKenny crashed into Howley's guitar neck on her way back to the crowd. Her wailing screams added a plane wreck effect to their Dillinger Escape Plan-esque, Botch-y chaotic hardcore. Her voice also makes a cameo on the band's latest release 'Bishop Kent Manning.'
