Recently gracing DC, New York hardcore legends Sick of It All performed at the Rock and Roll Hotel. Upon entering the venue, you could sense the excitement of the day-one fans that filled out the dimly lit room. Sporting leagues of tattoos on their arms, necks, and legs dressed in hardcore shirts left and right, you could tell these fans were meant to be here.

Hardcore legends Integrity, originally based in Cleveland, established a loyal following by releasing influential metalcore albums and consistently putting on memorable shows since the 1980s. Over the weekend, Integrity stopped by Metro Gallery for two sold-out headlining shows. The turnout on night one of the all-ages shows proved that Integrity continues to draw new fans.

Nothing, the Philadelphia-born band led by Domenic “Nicky” Palermo (former hardcore punk vocalist for Horror Show), is the story of a band and a man who has gone through a constant string of adversity but who perseveres in spite of (or perhaps because of) it. That perseverance was evident at the Rock and Roll Hotel on Friday.
