About The Event
Tim Smith’s 43rd Anniversary Punk/Metal Show features the soul crushing sounds of Vault, Basilica, The Karloffs, and Nerve Endings. 8:00pm at the Boone Saloon. $5 or free if you come in all corpse paint.
Vault: Returning this year to the Punk/Metal show and opening is Boone's very own and elusive Vault. The few times that they have graced the public with their raw power, people fainted from the sheer awesomeness of this four piece. Ripping metal and explosive percussion are balanced by primordial vocals.
Basilica: Basilica is a blackened hair slam band from Boone. There's not much more to say than, "How the hell have I not heard of this band before?" If you thought that you were metal, you will have to rethink your own identity after facing off against this powerful death metal outfit. Black, deadly, metal forged in the caves of old, and full of bladed-tipped hair. https://basilicadeathmetal.bandcamp.com/
The Karloffs: The world famous Karloffs always kick you in the face. The hardest (and longest) working punk band in Boone, this group is always a must see. If you wanted to know what it was like to kick, fight, and punch away capitalism, conformity, and Reagan-Thatcher back in the day...but from the mountains...this is the band to see. Raw punk power.
Nerve Endings: Returning and headlining this year is a group from Bristol, TN that will leave you wondering how we didn't charge you $40. Nerve Endings are a noisey hardcore punk band from Bristol, Tennessee, in the style of early hardcore like Black Flag or NoMeansNo, but also taking influence from noise rock bands such as the Jesus Lizard and Big Black. They play shows regularly throughout the southeast and tour as often as possible. They have opened for many national acts, such as Weedeater, Wino, Mondo Generator, Iron Reagan, Ex-cult, OBN III's, Ringworm, and more. They have also just self-released a new full length album, titled Living Minimally, available at nerveendings.bandcamp.com, or on Itunes and Spotify.
