HXC Magazine To Put On One Day ‘Make A Change’ Fest

The show will take place in the basement of the First Unitarian Church of Philadelphia, Saturday, June 24th, featuring the bands I Hate Heroes, In Loving Memory, REPS, Zoume, Awake At Last, Pulling Punches and Hollow Bones.

The show is IHOF’s first in over two years and the punk display will feature bands Airstream Futures and Pulling Punches as well. Brooklyn’s IHOF is made of members who are well-versed in the post-hardcore scene: Joseph Grillo (ex-GARRISON) Justin Scurti (PRIMITIVE WEAPONS, ex-MILHOUSE), Scott Padden (PILOT TO GUNNER) and Matt Krupanski (ex-BOYSETSFIRE).

LIVE SHOTS: REPS, Hollow Bones, To Live As Wolves, Pulling Punches, Ellipses, SUMMER HOUSE SHOW

A kiddie pool, a beyond smashed piñata, neighbors crashing the party to take photos and pick up merch, birthday cake, and insane decibel levels the likes of which a suburban NJ backyard has never seen. We’re talking, of course, about the second HXC Magazine house show. Since the weather permitted it, we set up the stage outside and only by the middle of the last band’s set, To Live As Wolves, did the cops show up. (Success!) Check out some shots from this amazingly fun day with Ellipses, Pulling Punches, Hollow Bones, REPS, and TLAW right here, and make sure you come out to the next one!
