All you floor-punchin' windmill maniacs better dust off your moshin' britches, because one of — if not the — biggest hardcore tours of the year is stopping off in Little Rock. The coasts are united, at least on this tour.

From Los Angeles comes Terror, which has been among the lead practitioners of Integrity-esque metalcore, releasing a raft of albums and EPs full of brutal, fist-pumping, circle-pit initiating insanity. From Bawston comes Bane (no, not that one), with mosh-friendly, posi-core anthems engineered to make you feel good while running around in a frenzy and pointing and shouting along whatnot.

Also on the tour are the thrash-leaning L.A. five-piece Rotting Out and the breakdown-happy throat-shredders Naysayer, of Richmond, Va.

Little Rock's Snakedriver will get this evening off to a brutal start. They've got some bitchin' new tunes up here. Check 'em out, I'm way digging the D-beat/sludge/powerviolence hybrid.

Little Rock is by far the smallest market on this tour, so good on Downtown Music Hall for booking it.
