Madball: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Feb 26 2014

Get your wife-beaters on and your biceps flexing, Bay Area, because a legendary New York hardcore quartet is going to be tearing up Thee Parkside this Saturday — and in a venue this small, it's bound to be an explosive night. Madball is 25 years old now: a bona fide hardcore institution, a major influence on too many bands to list here, and leaders in consistently showing younger bands how to retain credibility, substance, and stamina on the road. The back catalog is huge at this point, and Madball knows how to please a crowd, so we're expecting classics like "Set It Off," "Down by Law," and "Get Out." Regardless, expect heavy riffs, barely-contained rage, and an absurd amount of testosterone.
