POINTLESS FEST 06' LINEUP! (caps)

Another summer, another Pointless Fest is taking place on August 10th, 11th, 12th and 13th. What is consistently the best and most organized "real" punk festival in The United States for the past four years. Real deal DIY punk/hardcore bands from all over the globe are flying in as they do each year. Remember last year when there was a four page spread in the Philadelphia Daily News Tony Pointless wearing anarchist chaps with a shotgun? Hah! Anyways this year's lineup for the most part includes.....

NO HOPE FOR THE KIDS (only us show - from Denmark)
As Described By Maximum Rock N Roll : Christ, if this hasn't been the soundtrack around the MRR house winter I don't know what is - not a day goes by where this doesn't get blasted at full volume - and with good reason. Those København punks have done it again - yet another amazing record that sounds like some long lost classic punk record, something so familiar that you swear that you've heard it before. It brings back some immediate connection in your mind to a youth spent drinking in alleys, smoking cigarettes in the rain and running from cops after stealing tubes of glue meant for an afternoon of huffing. And skating, always skating. "I stuffed myself with pills today, doesn't seem to be working… It's a rainy day, my life just slips through my hands just to fade away." Edgey, anthemic riff heavy punk that pulls heavily from the blueprint mapped out by early TSOL and AGENT ORANGE. It's dark and moody while still retaining some sense of melody and an emphasize on writing top quality songs. Anthems, if you will, for a doomed youth. Absolutely essential

SEVERED HEAD OF STATE (only east coast show)
Current and former members of Detestation, His Hero is Gone, Tragedy, and World Burns to Death (as you probably already know). This record is a bit more diverse than the band's previous work, ranging from fast paced blasts of somewhat noisy hardcore to slower and more metallic riffing with a little bit of interesting dissonant melody (check out "Dust to Dust"). The vocals are lightly distorted shouts that never let up, they just occasionally venture out of the midrange into higher or lower territory for a short time

WORLD BURNS TO DEATH (only east coast show, LP release show)
****… here's some blistering hardcore/punk with an incredibly tight performance and a really unique vocal sound. It's a multi vocal attack with predominantly straight shouts and then some higher screams that make for great tradeoffs, but it's really a step aside from the usual delivery. These guys display some great songwriting that offers up tons of changes and a lot of semi complex subtleties that are pretty rare when it comes to this genre of hardcore. The songs are fast and heavy with a lot of energy, and something about this record is immediately more memorable than most of what's out there

1905 (last show ever)
A longtime East Coast favorite - Male/Female vocals over hardcore that is in turn influenced by the melodicism of Rites Of Spring and the raw power and forward thinking lyrics of Four Hundred Years

As well as .....

Rambo (last philly show till 2007)
Paint it Black (ex-kid dynamite/lifetime)
Caustic Christ (ex-aus rotten from Pittsburgh)
Witch Hunt(profane existence)
Direct Control (one of the best us hardcore bands. feral ward)
Magrudergrind (grindcore from dc/va)
Hellshock (from portland. only east coast show)
Violation (members of AOS)
Pissed Jeans (subpop records)
World/inferno F.S. (13 member crazy cult circus pants)
Thought Crime (ex mems Suicidal Supermarket Trolleys and Distruaght)
Dismal (scandi-crust influenced brutality)
Kylesa (brutality from georgia)
Carpenter Ant (skate core w/ the singer dressed in full skate gear etc)
Fighting Dogs (philly)
+ A Few More Special Guests

So excited for Caustic Christ, Paint it Black and World/Inferno. Does anyone know who is playing which dates?

Philadelphia has been getting really good shows lately.

Really good lineup, might be better than Chaos In Tejas...I'm not sure and won't really know either way.

I'm pretty excited for the World Burns To Death show out here in the next month or so.

I hope World/Inferno isn't playing on the 12th. I have shopping cart polo that night. Though I'll be seeing them July 26th anyway it'd be nice to see them twice in one summer.

I made a Direct Control thread months ago and no one posted in it. Lame.

I don't think the lineup is that great. No Hope For The Kids is good, though, and Jeff would like to see them I bet.

I'm not going

That **** looks crazy. But, 1905 is breaking up?! That ****ing sucks man, they're a fantastic band. I've seen about half of those bands individually, and they were all amazing; together, wow. Just wow.
