Photos/Video: Nails, Xibalba, Early Graves, White Widows

Nails

The IO-sponsored trek featuring crust/grind/dm favorites Nails, half-speed down-tuned hardcore from Xibalba and ripping crusty hardcore from Early Graves came to a close over the weekend, but not after making a stop at Saint Vitus in Brooklyn on May 3rd. The sold-out show featured an appearance from groove-hardcore band White Widows (current/past mems of Primitive Weapons, Goes Cube, The Destro), who opened the show and snagged a guest slot from vocalist Brendan Garrone of NYHC band Incendiary. The remainder of the bill was similarly brutal, with touring bands inciting stage dives, floorpunches and raised fists despite the ominous security crew looming in the background. More pictures and some video from Saint Vitus on Friday are below.
