This event is 21 and over
Taking their name from an obscure typographic term, Descender is a Brooklyn-based band made up of four graphic designers. Drawing on influences ranging from early '90s indie and punk rock to hardcore and new progressive metal, Descender effortlessly fuses together a sound that defies easy classification. Often sidestepping traditional verse/chorus conventions, their songs are short and to the point, but also richly textured. Comparisons usually fall the way of 90s post-hardcore icons like Quicksand, Helmet, Unsane and Snapcase.
Over the last two years Descender has been making a name for itself playing regularly in NYC-area clubs, basement venues and DIY loft spaces including Mercury Lounge, Studio at Webster Hall, Santos Party House, Trash Bar, Lit Lounge, The Charleston and more. They've shared bills with some kick ass bands including Goes Cube, Shai Hulud, Outbreak, Tiger Flowers, The Banner, Naam, Iron Age, East of the Wall, Heks Orkest, Tournament, ASG, Monolith, Devil & the Sea, Music Hates You, Reign Supreme, The Carrier, Red Chord and Premonitions of War to name a few.
The Scandals are a New Jersey punk band from Bayonne, formed in the winter of 2004. Since its origin, the band has gone through some minor line-up changes finally settling on the dynamic foursome you all know and love.
True to the hard, fast style that has long been associated with East Coast punk rock, The Scandals have a sound that's gritty and raw, with anthemic hooks and catchy riffs. They're a high-energy band that plays high energy shows, and with the promise of new music and new tours, you'll be hearing a lot more from these jersey boys very soon.
