Hot Snakes toured nine cities in the United States in November (including Brooklyn, NY on Thursday, November 16th), with the final scheduled for Philadelphia, PA on Saturday, November 18, 2017 at Underground Arts. The formerly defunct band, who will release a new record next year, was joined by Duchess Says of Montreal, Canada and Pile of Boston, Massachusetts. The show fell on the day where Malcolm Young of AC/DC died so the venue played AC/DC in between sets and John Reis declared that he was now the greatest living rock guitarist after Young's death. I photographed all three acts for the gallery which appears above.
In mid-August, Hot Snakes surprised fans by announcing they are releasing a new record in the spring of 2018 on Sub Pop Records. During that announcement, they revealed a nine city US tour that would occur in November. Last night, the reunited band played at The Bell House (their first time there since December 2011) with SAVAK and The Piggies.
I covered the show for Brooklyn Vegan and the full gallery is now available here.
On Friday, April 13, 2001, the tour featuring San Diego's Rocket from the Crypt and Sweden's The (International) Noise Conspiracy came to New York City for two shows at Bowery Ballroom. I attended the first night (on Friday) and recently scanned the film images I took that night for this gallery.
