Thursday night (1/31), Philadelphia PA's Woe invaded Saint Vitus and brought along two great New York bands to share in the mayhem. The crowd was small but appreciative, and all three of the groups gave performances deserving of a much larger audience. Shows like this remind me why I love live music and extreme metal. A full set of pictures and review follows.

The first band, Skullshitter, play a style of death metal infused grindcore that's raw, energetic and pissed off. Really pissed off. They tore through their set like a pack of feral dogs, pausing only briefly between songs to impart useful tidbits of information to the audience – such as a buy-one-get-one Big Mac sale McDonald's is running this week. Seeing as how I'm currently between jobs, I was thankful for this information as well as the face melting grindcore that Skullshitter blasted.
