Big Ups (Farewell Tour)
Brendan Finn, Joe Galarraga, Amar Lal, and Carlos Salguero Jr. met whilst learning about specifications of Cat 5 cables in New York City. Shortly after, they formed a band. Big Ups blends punk, post-punk, metal, and indie rock into a salty mash that gets stuck to the roof of your mouth. Big Ups released their debut 11-track LP, Eighteen Hours of Static in the beginning of 2014, followed by Before A Million Universes in early 2016, and culminating with this spring's Two Parts Together. After almost 9 years and 450 shows, Big Ups will give their last performance in Connecticut on January 11, 2019 at the Space Ballroom.
Band from Newtown, Connecticut
As if to highlight just how depraved they are, HELLRAZOR chose to not only celebrate the underworld in their very name; their first album is called "Satan's Smile," a clear sign that they act in service of only one being—Lucifer, the embodiment and root of all evil.
HELLRAZOR blends the sort of heavy, ear-splitting rock that typically soundtracks the underworld's various outposts on Earth—convenience-store parking lots, secluded spots deep in the woods, plazas where "skaters" can show off their "tricks"—and its dealings with unexpected forays into pop. Do not let the "lighter side" of the band, as exhibited on the deceptively sweet "Vegas" (with a reference to "Sin City" right in the title!!!) and the contemplative "Jargon Scott," fool you! Since their inception as a Rancid cover band, HELLRAZOR have proven themselves to be devoted to elevating the lewd and gross, recording a chunk of "Satan's Smile" at a Philadelphia recording studio with the horrifying name Sex Dungeon and chanting "million dollars, million dollars" over the ragged riffs on the album opener "A Cool Mill."
Evil is all over HELLRAZOR's catalog. These degenerates know that the more they flaunt their demonology, the more they will be empowered by the devil to continue doing so. Yet it is all a deception. Satan is not nice to anyone! He brings ongoing misery and final destruction even to his own. He plays nice with no mortal, whether man or animal.
The sonic elements buried inside HELLRAZOR's frantic riffing only make their message of a world "Covered In Shit" more potent. Protect your children from their evil—and their music—while you still can.
