Last official IU show of the year before BIG DAY IN! (aka the show of the two word band names).

It's time to pull out all the stops, bring the ruckus, make the sweat, do the thing with the stuff, and so on, so forth. If this one doesn't end in a big pile of everything, I'm going home. But, enough with the nonsense.

Let's meet our first out of state guests of honor... There's DOPE BODY, who hail from Baltimore (love that place) and whom we unfortunately missed on their summer tour with Liturgy and Hume. Their latest LP "Nupping" hit a few months back over the summer and their latest beast (pictured above) is a screenprinted split with tourmates CHILD BITE from Detroit.  The DB crew wield a solid mix of crunch, math-spazz, and rock holler (who have an apparent affinity for Rage Against The Machine of all things) and CB are a keyboard-happy ball of avant-punk.  The CB camp recently performed as Nine Inch Nails for their hometown Halloween show. Guess you could say we've got two killer, high-energy bands on tour together with an affinity for 90s big shots, doing things that present-day fans of those bands would probably hate. I digress. Check these out!

Closing out the night will be our good friends from Rochester, Hex Record's own LIKE WOLVES. These guys have been slugging it for over 3 years with a high-energy hardcore punk influenced by angular goodies like Hot Snakes & Drive Like Jehu. First time back in Ithaca since Dec '10. Check out tracks of their latest 12" here and footage from their Big Day In performance below!

Last but first, our pals Womyn Boiz will be kicking things off. Gnarly garage punk with plenty of samples from Binghamton/NYC. Check out their tunes here.  

So, the order is Womyn Boiz, Child Bite, Dope Body, and Like Wolves.  8PM $5 ALL AGES >>>
The Space @ GreenStar, 700 W Buffalo St, Ithaca, NY 14850
- easy to get to from the corner of N. Fulton & Court St by the railroad tracks but if you want to take Buffalo St - take the alley across from GreenStar Coop between Enterprise and Kalzonies... drive down the alley a bit until Corks & More is on your left - The Space is on your right (the yellow & purple bldg withing the fencing).  Makes more sense when you're there I swear.  See you then!
