Die Trying's Oi the Boat Records Release Party at Churchill's Pub: A 50-Photo Recap

Don't be a pushover.
Don't be a pushover.

Hundreds of live-music fans packed Churchill's Pub on Saturday night for hours of non-stop entertainment from Die Trying, Low Visibility, The Ruins, Hardware Youth, SSK, Bottom Shelf Warriors, and FWA.

The bar ran through liquor like a freight train. The circle pit was a hurricane of flying limbs. And between Rick at All, Rat Bastard, and DJ Skidmark, every note was cleaner than a nun's vagina.

It was fucking awesome. Here are the pictures.

Next up were The Ruins. Holy shit. The Ruins, The Ruins, The Ruins. This band has been around for a couple decades with different lineups. But the current one is fuckin' fire. Straight-up hardcore punk rock. Sounds like Warzone.

Hardware Youth hit the stage and stomped reality in the face. Oldey style Miami shit with cracking beats, thumping bass, hellfire guitar, and shutdown city vocals. Sounding like a mix of Madball and DNME.
