MUSIC: This Is A Movement Starts A Revolution At The Met

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

 

This Is A Movement capped off a raucous night of punk in their hometown of Providence, at The Met.

Punk rock was the main focus at the Met in Pawtucket as a quadruple amount of amazing bands graced the stage. This Is A Movement, The Down And Outs, Meds and Hell Sea rocked the room into a oblivion for a evening full of putting your devil horns up in the air and headbanging like there's no tomorrow. If you thought punk was dead, is certainly was resurrected at The Met on Thursday.

Hell Sea

First up was Hell Sea, a band that was loud as a freight train running right by your house. . Reminding me a lot like At The Drive-In and Glassjaw, Hell Sea featured a grand fusion of the in your face energy punk rock possesses and post-hardcore styles for a contemporary tinge. "Glow", "Plan", "Tools", "Tradition", "Autumn", "Jukebox" and "Odessa" made for an insanely powerful performance. This was Hell Sea's first show ever and they made quite the impression, hopefully they play around Rhode Island again.

Meds

Meds from Newport came up next and right from the start they sounded like The Stooges and Hot Water Music, infectious punk rock you couldn't keep your eyes off of. "Ballad Of Liz & Zig", "Mob Song", "Neck Tat", "Jupiter", "8th Floor Stint", "Belly Shake", "Junker", "Blended", "Goons" and "Curtains" immediately made Meds one of the favorite punk bands out there today. Meds will be going into the studio to work on their debut album, music I can't wait to put into my library at home.

The Down and Outs

Providence punk legends The Down And Outs came on stage for a display of rip roaring, string shredding punk rock that they've come to be known and loved by. "Villain", "You Probably Downloaded This Song", "All Because Of You", "Head & Heart", "Honor Not Pride", "Deciding", "March 11th", "50 Years Of 9 to 5", "Derail" and "The Spark" showcased the amazing stage presence these guys have. The Down And Outs currently have an EP out called You Probably Downloaded This and they'll have a tour kickoff show at AS220 in Providence on February 10th. A great record to pick up along with a spectacular show to get your fill of one of the best punk bands in The Creative Capital.

This Is A Movement

Capping off the raucous night was This Is A Movement, a three piece punk band that has been making huge waves in their hometown of Providence and beyond lately. "Through The Grapevine", "2012" an electrifying rendition of KISS's "Detroit Rock City", "Sleep Well" and "The Troll Toll" highlighted a performance that set the stage on fire with authority. This Is A Movement will be hitting the studio this March to record a few new songs they have but they have two EPs available with Walk Away and The Destruction Of Yourself And The World Around You. As punk as it gets, two EPs I highly suggest getting your hands on. Another great night of music at the best music venue in Pawtucket, log on to themetri.com to be in the know on the shows that you must check out.
