Aside from Chicken Wings and our default-dad Derek Evers, not much good is said to come from Buffalo. The upstate little brother sure has had its fair share of disparity—from the economic, to the potentially disastrous (see: fuck you John Bon Jovi)—but there is one title they can proudly wear: Best Noise Fest, Summer 2014.
Yeah, it’s an award we just came up with. And I’m sure there’s some people in our home of Brooklyn who would argue otherwise, but the Summer Scum Noise Fest lineup straight slays, with sets from Pharmakon, Total Abuse, Filth and over 40 more bands. Clearly, what Buffalo lacks in culture, it makes up for by being the perfect touring distance from The City, thus the opportunity to book a bunch of touring bands at once and for what we can only assume is for much less than what these bands ask for in the high-demand area of Kings County.
It all goes down this weekend, Friday, July 25 and Saturday July 26 at the Foundry (298 Northampton Street), and there will be a fundraiser double cassette compilation available for purchase featuring exclusive tracks from 34 of this years performers including Ahlzdeveloper, Corporate Park, Surgical Renaissance, Deterge, Filth, Brad Griggs+Breaking The Will, Mutwawa, Gnawed,Private Archive, Xiphoid Dementia, Tinnitustimulus, Cops, Nick Klein, Pleasure Island, and more, which you can stream below. Tickets are $20 per day, and $35 for both days. Full lineup after the stream.
