The Obelisk Presents: Buzzov*en, Earthride & Crushed at Knitting Factory Brooklyn, Oct. 29

Posted in The Obelisk Presents on October 5th, 2017 by JJ Koczan

Every now and again, life affords you the opportunity to have a truly memorable evening. These nights don’t have to be perfect — sometimes they can involve getting kicked in the head — but they’re the sorts of nights you continue to bring with you as you move along the course of your existence. They affect you long after they’re over, sometimes in ways you don’t even immediately understand, and it’s not until you look back years later that you fully realize the impact that single night had.

I’m thrilled to have The Obelisk counted among the sponsors for Buzzov*en and Earthride‘s tour stop at Knitting Factory in Brooklyn on Oct. 29 with Crushed opening because I truly believe this could be one of those nights for those fortunate enough to be in attendance. It might be smooth going, or you might get kicked in the head, but so help me, one way or another and no matter what sort of ingestion you might undertake along the way, you’re going to remember you were there when this thing happened. It’s going to be one hell of an evening: volume, intensity, rawness, groove. Don’t be surprised if at least three new bands form from people in the crowd, because the impulse to carry forward this level of onslaught will be strong. I mean it.

Let’s sell this one out, Brooklyn. All ages. Make it happen. Here’s info:

Buzzov-en has been cranking out drug-fueled, misanthropic sludge punk in various incarnations since their inception in 1990. Known almost as much for their out-of-control and sometimes violent live shows as they are for their music, the band carries on a tradition shared by such fellow Southern troublemakers as Eyehategod and Antiseen. They have endured several lineup changes and apparent breakups over the years, with the only permanent member being singer/guitarist Kirk Fisher (alternately credited on albums as “Reverend Dirtkicker” or simply “Kirk.”).

Buzzov*en are:
Kirk – Vocals/Guitar
Dave “Dixie” Collins – Bass/vocals
Ash Lee – Drums
Zak Hembree – Guitar
