#5 Hardcore Activity in Progress @ Knockdown Center (FRI 8pm, $10)
This show is the hardcore version of last year’s Drone Festival, which we photographed and were generally amazed by. The Red Bull Music Academy doesn’t dissapoint, especially not with a lineup of so many talented artists, including Tim Hecker, Napalm Death, Gunplay, The Thing, Wolf Eyes, Regis, Bastard Noise, Lubomyr Melnyk, Skullflower, and more.
Free + Insane rock’n’thrash lineup. Need we say more?
#3 BangOn! presents DangZone @ Secret East Willyb Warehouse(SAT 10pm, $40)
“Enter a 20,000 sq ft warehouse with 2 stages, multiple levels, sexy aerial combat manuevers, zipline acrobatics, chill lounges, flight training rides, and a whole lot more…” All you need to know.
A fantastic night of vibey psychedelic folk including Woods and our personal faves, Quilt.
