Last night Cro-Mags, Fucked Up, Screaming Females and Pissed Jeans played a free admission show at House of Vans in Brooklyn. It was a dripping wet show all around, starting with a torrential downpour that hit a couple of thousand kids outside shortly before doors opened at 7pm. Once inside the drenched show goers were greeted by sauna like conditions. Condensation was dripping from the ceiling while a band had yet to set foot onto the stage. Corporate sponsorship or not, it was a kick ass Brooklyn style warehouse summer show. Personally, I take this over any sterile Bowery Presents event any day. Shit was raw and messy, the way these things need to be. Footage of Cro-Mags, Fucked Up and Pissed Jeans is below. Screaming Females we unfortunately missed as we had to grab a bite outside.
