Ceremony, Nothing, Violent End All Ages Early Warnings (Music) Recommended Image

When: Tue., July 15, 6:30 p.m. 2014

My intro to the Bay Area's Ceremony was via their 2008 sophomore full-length, Still Nothing Moves You, whose thrash-driven hardcore punk rippers are so boiled-down and intense that when a song crosses the two-minute mark it seems almost indulgent. Back in those days vocalist Ross Farrar borrowed a bit from Youth of Today-era Ray Cappo (in a good way, if you can imagine) and tore through the band's punk blastbeats with his venomous snarls—Ceremony left pools of sweat and spit on DIY-space "stages" across the country. —Kevin Warwick, 2012
