Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

​These days it has become exceedingly rare to see a show flyer that's been produced entirely without the aid of a computer. (I mean, we as a people are so obscenely wired that it seems the next logical step should be embedding a Bluetooth into my skull and/or seamlessly interfacing my laptop with my crotch.) Thus, whenever one of these endangered, graphite-on-paper, straight-from-the-notebook gems -- that one to the left, for example -- crops up, it's a thrilling discovery, like finding the Paleolithic doodlings of some mosh-manic caveman. 

All that to say, I think we're dealing with a presumably teenaged (at heart?) designer who's way too punk to give a shit about the inevitable, onward march of technology. And likewise, the bands on this Destroyio Records bill have got zero love for techno toys, gizmos, and doodads. Local hardcore heads the Panix, O.P.S., Brain Damage, and Baker Acted simply prefer the fast, hard, and bloody payoff of brutally primal noise. They don't need anything more than an axe, the bass, and a set of buckets to make a scene go psycho. So yeah, just take your futuristic bullshit elsewhere. We don't need it here in the caves. 

Thursday, September 17. Churchill's, 5501 NE 2nd Ave., Miami. Show starts at 9 p.m., and tickets are $5. 305-757-1807; churchillspub.com

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
