New Turks, Bbigpigg and Slendermen

The final date of the New Turks/Bbigpigg Tiny tour 2k15

@bbigpigg (NYC) Returning to RVA Bbigpigg brings their noisey sewer punk with nightmarish veracity to the G5 stage once again. Nipple twist inducing rips over hellish pounding mountain tops of thunder collide with piercing guitar lines and manic lyricism to induce a fit of pure delusional catharsis

https://bbigpigg.bandcamp.com/album/phantom-photography-ep

Slendermen (MD) Baltimore thin twin combo offers tribal drum rituals to the freak gods of the inner sphere of the brains primal hemispheres

https://imaginationrock.bandcamp.com/album/heroin-friends

New Turks Local sludge riff hammerers wail their instruments till their bodies can wail no more
