This is Hardcore

Media Title

Joe Hardcore, the czar of the Philadelphia scene he’s adopted as a moniker, has once again put together a staggering, cross-generational lineup of over 60 bands. Entering its ninth year, This is Hardcore has a well-earned reputation as one of the preeminent weekends of hardcore music in the nation. Since moving from the Starlight Ballroom at 9th and Spring Garden to the Electric Factory in 2012, TIH hasn’t looked back. And it’s been host to some of the biggest reunions and most memorable sets in the last decade of American hardcore.

For the older heads, there’s BL’AST!, Bold, CIV, Crowbar, Dropdead and Fury of Five. Phillyphiles will be well represented as always, with a set from hardcore luminaries Blacklisted, as well as Rock Bottom, Wrong Answer and Wilkes Barre’s finest, Cold World and Title Fight.

NYHC legends Madball celebrate the 20th anniversary of Set It Off, their debut LP, and help close out the weekend on Sunday. Joining them at the end of the bill for a rare appearance is local outfit Bad Luck 13 Riot Extravaganza (above). Fronted by Jason Goldberg, who now owns the Olde City Tattoo shop, Bad Luck 13 boasts a notorious history of highly destructive crowd responses—See Hellfest 2004 and various unlucky Jersey venues in 1998. This one TIH finale you’ll be pissed if you missed. // DANIEL GELB
