HxC: Everything’s Coming Up Hardcore
Providence is finally welcoming spring, and there are plenty of shows blowing into town with it. The Met and Lupo’s are hosts to some of the bigger pop punk bands that are coming around. Both Four Years Strong and The Wonder Years will be playing this month. Four Years Strong is taking over The Met on St. Patrick’s Day. And what’s a better way to celebrate than with Boston locals? The Wonder Years are playing Lupo’s early in April with Letlive. Both bands know how to put on a great show. Providence punk legends Dropdead and Boston legends Slapshot are going to be playing an unforgettable show in Newport with FI, Firewalker and Corrective Measure. Firewalker from Boston is taking over the hardcore scene right now, with their original female fronted lineup. AS220 and Firehouse 13 both have stacked lineups throughout March and April.
