Holy shit. If more punk and hardcore shows start looking like this HOAX show in Chicago a couple months back, a fresh crop of fear-mongering, anti-punk, lock-up-your-kids-and-have-awkward-talks-with-them, major network after-school specials whipping suburban parents into a frenzy can’t be too far behind.
PS: For anyone unfamiliar with HOAX who’s alarmed by what they can make out from the first song’s lyrics: no, they’re not homophobic.
BEST OF 2011
Without a doubt, if one band sticks with me from last year, it’s HOAX. If you haven’t heard them yet, find it. If you haven’t seen them yet, get on it. It seems hardcore’s gaining some steam going into 2011. At least that’s my perspective. If any one band has got me excited about this music again, it’s HOAX.
