This event takes place at our Jersey City location.
Music journalist Tony Rettman presents an oral history of the New York City hardcore scene between 1980 and 1990 in his book, NYHC, which covers everything from regional rivalries to the birth of moshing. He’ll be in conversation with musicians Kevin Crowley (The Abused) and Drew Stone (The High & Mighty, Antidote).
Facebook RSVP is encouraged, but not required.
