hello! i am writing in a very last minute way on behalf of myself and my sick bandmate/drummer/dear friend julia:
we are in a band called GROKE that is going on tour next week, a tour with some gaps in the middle, so at this point we are putting it out there that we would be extremely psyched to jump on a pre-existing show anywhere in the northeast/mid atlantic (western mass, vermont, philly, baltimore, jersey, eastern upstate ny…?? southeast canada?) (we got worcester, boston, nyc, and portland me covered.) on JULY 20, 21, 23, and 24.
we are a 2 piece, heavy queercore/sissy crust with bass and drums, have all our own shit except vocal amplification. we are from providence RI and definitely get down with mixed genre shows. usually our set is less than 20 minutes. subject matter ranges from body dysphoria, vomiting, gentrification, police chemical warfare, misogyny, alienation and distress.
we’ll play general metal and punk bro zones as long as nobody is extremely problematic or abusive.
here is what we sound like: http://www.groke.bandcamp.com
“like joy division crossed with amebix - the sugar and the RAMPAGE” - Gerry
“bottled despair” - hilary from whore paint/arcing
“emotional swans” - emmy bright
