United Nations @ Holocene (21+)

Lotsa hardcore music this time 'round. United Nations is a powerviolence/screamo supergroup of sorts, collecting members from Thursday, Pianos Become the Teeth, Lovekill, Acid Tiger, and more. Their 2014 album, The Next Four Years, sounds kind of like a really aggressive storm cloud rolling overhead, but there are strains of beer-doused fist-pumping not far off from Titus Andronicus and their bar-band ilk, too. It's a dark, angry, pessimistic record, but I can't help but noticing that, for all of its negativity, it's pretty fun too. This show should reflect that nicely. Also fun fact: The international organization United Nations sent a cease-and-desist letter to the band and got their Facebook page deleted. Take that, punks!
