Best way to start off the 2011 year of house shows in Pittsburgh: have Weekend Nachos play a house-show in your place. The devils at the Helter Shelter in Pittsburgh's Lawrenceville neighborhood started off their year of house-shows with a packed powerviolence show on January 4th featuring the fun-loving Chicago natives. They might have possibly been the loudest band I've ever seen, and they totally kicked ass; opening with the classic "Prioritize" and ending with the crushing "Shot in the Head," which is one of the two songs off their latest EP Bleed out on Relapse. Bleed is a two-track, 14 minute descent into a madness of frenzied hardcore and straight doom-ridden sludge... a true little gem. Can't wait to hear what is on the horizon for these guys.

Another band that played that night, and totally blew me away, was Indiana's DAISEYCUTTER, who's 7" press, Invertebrate, I picked up and am working on posting onto here. This is some brutal grind from America's burned-out mechanical heartland, and with influences from Terrorizor and Despise You. Stay tuned for these guys.
