Violent Bullshit at The Knitting Factory
Violent Bullshit sound just as agressive as their name suggests. Their songs are 1-2 minute bursts of pulsing guitars and screamed vocals. Lead singer Jayson Green flew around the stage with a suprising amount of energy. I remember seeing him fronting Cheeseburger in a suit. Is this the same guy? And their guitarist leapt off the drum kit a couple of times too.
Not sure why they were opening for a shoegaze band.
See, if this were a punk show at the Acheron the crowd would have gone nuts. I mean, this is exactly the sort of thing that crowd wants: high-energy insanity, quick break, repeat until bloody. Great band, wrong bill.
