Wrex The Halls 2017 - Friday Night [Cancelled]

THIS SHOW HAS BEEN CANCELLED.

Friday, December 8, 91x presents Wrex the Halls 2017. This year's line up includes Buckfast Superbee, Highly Suspect, The Struts, The Used, Run the Jewels, and headliner Rise Against.

About the bands:

Rise Against
The darkest moments in history—those when fear and hate trump all else—are the times that define us. As politicians use bigoted rhetoric to gain power at home and abroad, and fringe groups creep from the shadows, it's tempting to succumb to despair and defeatism. But Rise Against is challenging fans to create a bold new identity together: one that is stronger than these setbacks, and bigger than any election. Wolves, their 8th studio release, is about recognizing the power within all of us; it's a primal call for the prey to become the hunters.

Run the Jewels
In 2012, El-P produced Killer Mike's critically acclaimed album R.A.P. Music. Later that year, Killer Mike appeared on the track "Tougher Colder Killer" from El-P's Cancer 4 Cure. The following year they officially formed the duo Run the Jewels, with an album under Fool's Gold Records announced for later in the year. They released their self-titled first album titled "Run the Jewels", as a free digital download. The duo announced they would begin recording the highly anticipated sequel to their debut in February 2014, after a series of Australian live dates as part of St. Jerome's Laneway Festival

The Used
If you had told The Used back at the turn of the millennium that we’d still be talking about their self-titled debut 15 years later, there’s no way they would have believed it. The scrappy foursome from Orem, Utah, recorded this album as bored teenagers living in an oppressive environment who had no idea that songs like “The Taste Of Ink” and “A Box Full Of Sharp Objects” would become the unexpected face of a new generation of youth culture. However what’s maybe more impressive is the way The Used have been able to prevail for a decade-and-a-half. Their upcoming re imagined acoustic album recorded live with a full orchestra is a perfect example of the ever-lasting nature of the band’s music.

The Struts
The Struts also show their skill in merging high-drama storytelling and pop-perfect melody on Everybody Wants, with “Black Swan” spinning a darkly charged tale of warring families and star-crossed lovers. “I’d thought that "Black Swan" would make a good title, so Luke and I started writing it together one night in his room,” recalls Slack. “We finished the melodies, and the next morning he’d come up with this whole tragic love story to put into the lyrics.” And on “Where Did She Go,” The Struts close out Everybody Wants with an infectiously stomping epic that first came to life when Spiller was just 15. “My parents had just moved to this horrible seaside town, which wasn’t a great place to be if you’ve got long hair or you’re just an individual in any way,” he says. “One night I was walking home quite drunk and started singing to myself, as you do, and this melody eventually came to me. I remember thinking, ‘What kind of melody could you get a whole football stadium full of people to sing along to?’, and then kept going from that.”

Highly Suspect

Buckfast Superbee (BfSb)
A rock and roll quartet of like minded individuals writing and performing songs that aim to bring the essentials: Unwavering intensity, undeniable melody and precise delivery all balanced on a razor sharp point. No amount of flash or fashion can replace a fiercely but artfully stated opinion and BfSb continues and thrives on that ethos.
