Agnostic Front

Friday, January 22, at Trees

The New York City hardcore legends of Agnostic Front definitely still bring it: They're still as loud and confrontational as always, even with their wrinkles, gray hair and degenerating vision. Well-into-their-50s principals Roger Miret (vocals) and Vinnie Stigma (guitar)—who, inspired by the likes of Black Flag and Bad Brains, formed the band in 1980—are still at the helm of the ever-changing lineup. (The rest of the band has gone through nearly two dozen members in its 28 years.)

Like most hardcore bands, Agnostic Front split up for a number of years (at one point, Miret was in jail for drug offenses), but it's been reinvigorated and active since 1997. And like most hardcore bands, Agnostic Front blends speedy, snotty street punk with thrash-metal and Oi! into an aggressive stew that still turns circle pits exceptionally violent.
