@The Democracy Ctr in Harvard Sq.
5PM MATINEE … $8-10 Sliding Scale
(Doors at 5, first band at 6, over by 9)


Heavy Breath (CT)
Politically charged lyrics, melodic hardcore punk. From CT.

As We Were (VT)
‘06 throwback. Emotive hardcore out of Burlington.

Fucking Invincible (RI)
From Providence, mem. of Soul Control, Dropdead, Daughters and other good bands. First Boston show I think?

Everything (Here)

I’m the worst at describing bands, you should really just get to the gig and hear for yourself. :)
