Thanksgiving Jam - with HR from the Bad Brains!

Talking about reasons one would like to be in California, and more specifically, OC: Well, how about shows like this one for a start!?

All the above Hardcore (and Punk) old school dudes amaze their fans once again, by having the heart to go out on Thanksgiving Day and play a benefit show for the Eli Home (a non-profit home for abused children in OC). The whole positive message of Hardcore can be found in the acoustic performances of this show, even if the music itself is not Hardcore.

HR of the Bad Brains is a true living legend, obviously belonging to a league of his own, while bouncing back and forth from Hardcore to Reggae. The Rastafari Icon's latest input is Hey Wella, an entertaining mix of Reggae, Hardcore, Metal and Hip Hop out on DC Hardcore. Definitely worth checking out!

Walter Schreifles
, which is known in Hardcore from his time in old school straight edge favorites Gorilla Biscuits, but also Quicksand and Rival Schools, will also be giving an acoustic performance, which to him is nothing new: check out his acoustic cover on Agnostic Front's Society Suckers below!

Along with the two aforementioned musicians (being the 2 more closely related to the type of Hardcore we @ T.Y.S. cover), the lucky attendants will also watch performances by Jonah Matranga of the band FAR, Jeff Pezzati from Chicago's old timers Naked Raygun, and Steve Soto of one of the most old school and pioneering punk rock bands, the Adolescents.

It's nice to see the worldwide Hardcore Community being there for those in need. It's nice to see some older dudes still caring, and not resting on their laurels and/or selling out. Props to these people!

Organizer: The Wishing Well Crew,
Note: We'd like to apologize for uploading the article a day or two after the show--we decided it was worth to check out anyway!
