November 26th, 2015, Shaker’s Pub on Long Island gave thanks to a legendary hardcore punk band that everyone knows one way or another. Negative Approach came to Long Island more pissed off than ever… for quite a few reasons. Starting the show was Hangman, an up-and-coming hardcore band who have played a handful of shows so far in their career, but are very promising. Next up was Child Bite, who were on tour with Negative Approach. Their blend of noise and hardcore was a perfect mesh for this show. Following Child Bite was Deathcycle, a hardcore/punk band that really gets in your face. Vocalist Ron Grimaldi likes to jump into the crowd and bounce around within the crowd telling you his thoughts and views on the world. Finally, Negative Approach came on stage, and with the help of the sound guy who continuously cut the main vocal microphone, vocalist John Brannon was able to exert more of his anger within the performance. Enjoy the pictures below!
