Only 18 hours left to purchase your tickets to Boston Hassle Fest 7 – a chance to see Dreamcrusher, David Yow, Flipper, Obnox, Screaming Females, Dent, Pile and many other great bands and performers!
In the meantime, here’s Hassle’s own Joanna reflecting on Negative One (who were a part of Scorched Ear 2 mini-fest). -1/Negative One are going to play Brighton Music Hall on Saturday, November 7th along with Guerilla Toss, Sadist, Curse Purse and Flipper (yes, that Flipper – being joined by a legendary madman David Yow of Jesus Lizard fame!)
Stopples were mandatory tonight. Opening the mini-fest was Negative One, a band containing Mr. Boston Hassle himself Sam Potrykus. They were led by former Weirdo Records owner and fiery front woman Angela Sawyer, who before starting the first song armed herself with a sharpie and was marking members of the crowd. This continued throughout the ten-minute or so long set. Their songs were short, maybe one song was over a minute long. They were quite right for a band that has only been together for a few months. A few of their songs were about fingers.
