American Aftermath Exclusive: TRAP THEM Vs. ALL PIGS MUST DIE

Back during SXSW 2011, Thrasher Magazine and Converse shoes put on their yearly Death Match showcase; this year the headlining act was Trap Them. Due to an incident the prior day where All Pigs Must Die set was cut, Trap Them was nice enough to give up half of their set to APMD, but instead of cutting the set short, Trap Them just let APMD set up their gear on stage with TT’s and perform in between Trap Them songs! It was a pretty sweet event and lucky for you guys, I was there to capture it on an SD card.

Posted above is Trap Them’s intro featuring Ben Koller (Converge, All Pigs Must Die) as the second drummer. Posted after the jump is the rest of the show Continue reading

American Aftermath Exclusive: Watch Pretty Much All Of T.R.A.M’s Only Performance

 

Instrumental jazzy prog band T.R.A.M originally seemed like they were going to make big waves in the undergound music pool, but  now are slowly fading into another forgotten studio project. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this group, the band consists of Tosin Abasi (Animals As Leaders), Javier Reyes (Animals As Leaders), Eric Moore (Suicidal Tendencies)and Adrian Terrazas-Gonzalez (The Mars Volta). To date, T.R.A.M have only played one show.

The only show the group ever played, they headlined and it was a free event during SXSW 2011′ that featured The Faceless and Meek Is Murder. I was lucky enough to attend this show and bootlegged 3 out of the four songs they played. Continue after the jump to watch almost the entire set from the progressive super group (it includes some Eric Moore drum cam style footage).

American Aftermath Exclusive: Watch EARTH CONTROL (Owen Hart) Perform during SXSW ’11

In honor of the news that the wonderful Earth Control will soon be releasing new music, I am going to share a few videos of the band performing at SXSW in 2011. Featured above is a video from the very first time I ever saw the band Owen Hart (now known as Earth Control). In the video the band performs the song “Methlaham” to about 20 people at a Brooklynvegan showcase. Overall it was a good performance but honestly, it’s kind of hard to rage to a band at 11am….

The video below is of the band playing in some random kids garage. It’s pretty awesome, maybe like four kids there have heard of the group, and yet some how they still manage to make the crowd mosh hard enough to short the power out…. At both shows I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to chat with the band’s vocalist for quite some time. He is a stand up dude. Ah, good times..

American Aftermath Exclusive: Watch TRAP THEM & ALL PIGS MUST DIE Perform In Some Kids Garage

A few years back, I attended SXSW in Austin, TX and was looking for a show on twitter when I saw Trap Them tweeted about how they were going to be playing a house show later that night. Needless to say, I attended said show and even got there hours before any decent bands were scheduled to play. The show was in some random hipster kids garage and was nothing but local Austin acts, but since it was SXSW and there were tons of bands looking for a place to play, the show became pretty epic, pretty fast.

Not only did Trap Them agree to play, but so did Owen Hart Earth Control, Touche Amore, Gaza and All Pigs Must Die… So after waiting through all the shitty locals, Owen Hart and Touche went on, then it was a few more hours of waiting before anyone notable played. By this time, it’s getting to be pretty late and by pretty late I mean 2am, and Trap Them, Gaza and All Pigs Must Die have yet to play.

So in order to speed things up and allow enough time for everyone to perform, Trap Them and All Pigs Must Die decided to set up both their equipment at the same time and play dueling sets! After Trap Them’s first song, ironically, the police show up and try to shut the show down before All Pigs Must Die can play one song. The police were not immediately successful in shutting the show and APMD had the balls to play another song before cops could pull the power. The videos of this event are embedded above and below. I hope you enjoy yourself almost a fraction of what I did filming them. Have a nice weekend.

American Aftermath Exclusive: CODE ORANGE KIDS Performing At SXSW ’12

 

Featured above is a video of Code Orange Kids performing Coast at SXSW this past year. The odd part about the showcase in the video above is that it wasn’t a hardcore show… COK’s were playing with Hellogoodbye and Great Big Pile Of Leaves… What the fuck, right? Well they did end up destroying the place and pushing all the indie hipsters and little girls into the other room. It was rad.

The video below is COK’s final show at SXSW. It’s a collective of songs from two of their albums. Shit ruled. Check it out -

American Aftermath Exclusive: AND SO I WATCH YOU FROM AFAR Performing At SXSW ’12

 

During March of this year while in Austin, TX for SXSW, I was lucky enough to catch Irish instrumental band And So I Watch You From Afar twice in one day. It was pretty rad, I’m not gonna lie. Prior to seeing them, I had only listened to them a handful of times. I actually went to see them because there were no other shows going on at the time and I actually knew who they were.

Turns out it was a great decision because they were extremely good live. I was very impressed by not only how tight they were together, but by their stage presence too. The videos featured in this article were shot at the Sargent House Records showcase. The video above the band playing 7 Billion People All Alive At Once and the one at the bottom was the set closer, Guitar Set Kill.

American Aftermath Exclusive: EARLY GRAVES Performing At SXSW ’12

In march of this year while in Austin, TX for SXSW ’12, I had the opportunity of seeing one of my favorite current bands, Early Graves, four times in a week. The video above is of a new song titled “Misery, Let Me Be“. It was performed during first show at SXSW as a part of Metalblade records showcase. This was my first time to see the band since the untimely death of their former singer Mahk Daniels (RIP). At first I was a little apprehensive at what the band might sound like with Jon from The Funeral Pyre on vocals, but he far exceeded my exceptions and ended up killing it.

The video below is of their final song from their final show at SXSW. It’s Early Graves performing the title track off of Goner. It’s a ripper, check this shit the out.

American Aftermath Exclusive: TRASH TALK Performing at SXSW ’12

 

Aye, It’s Friday and this is my last post of the week so I wanted to leave you guys with something a little special. Featured in this post are two different Trash Talk sets. The one above is from their first show at SXSW 2012, It was at the Lustre Pearl and was with Wavves, Killer Mike, and Prodigy/MobbDeep. I almost did get to see the show since it was wrist band only (and I am too poor to buy a wrist band), but lucky, the singer of Trash Talk, Lee, is the fucking man and stunk about 30 fans into to the show to cause some mayhem.

Up next is the (almost) whole set from the now infamous Vice Kills showcase with A$AP Rocky. The Vice Kills showcase was the last show of SXSW for me this year. It was a free 21+ showcase that handed out all the free booze one could drink. Let me just say that the free alcohol was the fuel for the show! I know I sure got Turnt up as fuck. I was soo drunk that I was one of the many people throwing PBR’s. Hell, At one point I even threw a chair….

After Trash Talk destroyed the place, A$AP Rocky went on. I guess the fans were still wasted and hyped from the prior set cause everyone kept throwing beers. It got so bad that police had to shut the show down after A$AP was hit with a beer and dove into the crowd to fight us! Make sure you let the video play, it’s a playlist so it will automatically queue the whole set! Enjoy.

American Aftermath Exclusive: DEAFHEAVEN Performing At SXSW ’12

 

During SXSW 2012 I was lucking enough to catch the post-black metal band Deafheaven three different times. The first time I saw them was at the Brooklyn Vegan showcase. They played right after Chelsea Wolfe (which is why I watched them). To be totally honest, prior to SXSW I wasn’t a big fan of these guys. I have a really hard time getting into most things black metal especially Shoegazy shit. I find it kind of boring.

However, I found my self really enjoying their sound in a live setting. I liked it so much that I made sure I was going to catch them again. The footage above is of the band performing the song Language Games at the Sargent House Records showcase. Enjoy.

American Aftermath Exclusive: TURQUOISE JEEP Live at SXSW ’12

I know it’s cliché but Mondays fucking suck. I’ve decided to try and help ease the pain of having to end your weekend by posting some videos of the fucking amazing hip hop/comedy/rnb collective Turquoise Jeep performing at this past years SXSW. The footage featured below was taken at their Doritos’ Jacked Showcase. The first song is their opening track, Cavities. This sensual love song is sang by the one and only Pretty Raheem and the sick verse is performed by my favorite rapper Flynt Flo$$y. Check it out -

Up next we have the classic Yung Humma & Flynt Flo$$y collabo about scandalous hos who sometimes don’t give it up because they “actually really like you”. Ahhhhh this is something that happens to me all too often. -

and finally they close the show with the epic dance floor favorite I like To Dance by the man with the sickest moves, Flynt Flo$$y.

Hopefully your day is now _____________________________________ this much more awesome….

American Aftermath Exclusive: Two Live Videos Of DEAD IN THE DIRT from SXSW ’12

This was my first time to see Dead In The Dirt and I honestly wasn’t super impressed. I don’t know if it was the shitty sound, the generic riffs, or all the holier than thou SXE/Vegan preaching shit, but whatever it was I wasn’t feeling it. It kind of sucked cause I had decent hopes for them. I liked their album “FEAR” on wax though. Oh well, above is a video of Dead In The Dirt performing Burden Of Life during the Thrasher Death Match showcase at the Scoot Inn.

American Aftermath Exclusive: Two Live Videos Of INTRONAUT From SXSW

(EDIT: I know this is late as fuck, but whatevs. In March of this year, I attended the ever so awesome SXSW music festival in Austin, TX. I got tons of footage of all kinds of bands, but I have been too busy to get around to posting them. Well now is the time is right and I will be posting a set of videos each day from a band that performed )

The first band featured in this new segment is prog sludge masters, Intronaut. They only performed once at SXSW this year, but I made sure I was there to catch it. They played the Metalsucks South By South Death Showcase along with Nachtmystium, Monstr0, High On Fire, Black Tusk, Holy Grail, and Darkest Hour at The Mohawk Patio. Over all the show was pretty meh, but Intronaut was for sure the highlight.

Above is a video of the band performing Core Relations off of the bands latest release, “Valley Of Smoke”. Below is a video of the band performing my personal favorite Intronaut song, Any Port.

They’re still around??: NOFX Enters Studio To Record New Album

20120330-154821.jpg

 

Going throwback on this one. Anyone who knows me knows that I’ve been a fan of punk music since before I was a teenager. So It should be of no surprised that I was stoked to see the tweet above. It’s official, Fat Mike has announced that NOFX will be entering the studio soon to record fourteen new songs that will sound just like all their older songs!

I know some of our elitist pretentious fuck face readers will argue that NOFX isn’t punk, well let me just say, I have never seen anything as punk as Fat Mike‘s performance as Cokie The Clown a few years back at SXSW. Watch this, seriously, it’ll change your life and make your day —–
