A few weeks ago BNB Productions announced that the 2013 Black N Bowl was confirmed for May 18th at Webster Hall (the former Ritz) in New York City. Since the Bowl’s long-awaited return to New York City in 2010 (previous editions were in Brooklyn) the combination of the iconic venue and the classic line-up’s have propelled the New York Hardcore scene to a whole different level.
After officially announcing May 18th speculations began about what line-up could possibly live up to the GORILLA BISCUITS reunion from 2010 or RANCID and SHEER TERROR sharing the stage in 2011.
On February 19th, during an episode of the Black N Blue Takeover the line-up was finally revealed.
BNB Productions announced that New York Hardcore legends JUDGE would be headlining the 2013 Black N Blue Bowl, creating a viral explosion and instantly setting the internet on fire.
During the radio show Mike Judge, who was joined by Anthony “Civ” Civorelli, said: “Civ invited me to come see GORILLA BISCUITS play Webster Hall in 2010 and after they performed “New York Crew” I knew right then and there that this was the place where I wanted to stand and see everybody go off to my music.” Civ added: “I’m more excited than Mike is right now. They said it would never happen and here it is.”
As if this long-awaited reunion isn’t amazing enough JUDGE will be joined on stage by BREAKDOWN, BANE, BLACK TRAIN JACK, STRIFE, DISTRICT 9, TAKE OFFENSE, ALTERCATION, OLD FIRM CASUALS, FIRE & ICE, ARRABIO (Cuba), DOWNPRESSER, NO ONE RULES and a special guest, who will be announced at a later date.
On February 22nd at 10:00am, the online tickets were sold out in a record time of 30 seconds, creating an absolute online frenzy.
Making accommodations for the incredible demand of people wanting to see this reunion, BNB then spearheaded adding a 2nd Judge show, scheduled for Sunday, May 19th at Webster Hall. Alongside JUDGE will be MADBALL, CROWN OF THORNZ, STRENGTH APPROACH (Italy), and COLDSIDE with more bands and details to be announced in the coming days.
Tickets for the newly added May 19th show will be available Friday, 3/1 at 10:00am via Webster Hall and Pitchfork with limited amounts available at the locations listed below. As always, there will be a limited amount of tickets available for both shows at the door day of the show, although we highly suggest purchasing them in advance to secure entry.
