Blacklisted/Mental 

Tuesday, November 29; Lemp Neighborhood Arts Center, (3301 Lemp Avenue)

If you thought hardcore was dead, well, you're just looking in all the wrong places. Featuring members of R'N'R and Righteous Jams, Mental stays true to hardcore's old-school roots, bringing to mind bygone acts like Underdog, SSD and Crucial Youth. Philadelphia's Blacklisted picks up where American Nightmare left off, combining hardcore's urgency and aggression with metal-influenced breakdowns. Their new collection, The Beat Goes On, showcases the band's uncanny ability to reconcile these two genres and is a great primer to hardcore's latest revival. But then again, don't take our word for it: Lace up your Nike Dunks and get to the Lemp to witness both bands' youthful energy yourself.
