We are very excited to kick off Pt I of the Blow The Scene photo coverage for This Is Hardcore Fest 2011 with Day 1 and 2 pictures by photographer Dante Torierri. Day 1 was hosted at the First Unitarian Church in Philadelphia, which for those of you just tuning in, has long reigned as one of the best mid-sized venues to see a band in the Philly area. Day 1 lineup included Go Rydell, Full Of Hell, Face Reality, Sacred Love, Disengage, Reign Supreme, Mindset, Bracewar, Foundation, and Underdog. Day 2 was hosted at the TIH’s long-time venue, Starlight Ballroom, with massive floor space for thousands of hardcore enthusiast to cut loose. And cut loose they did for an incredible line-up including Wrong Answer, Praise, Mother of Mercy, Nails, Ringworm, Mouthpiece, Title Fight, Token Entry, H20, and Youth of Today. We were fortunate to catch up with Joe Hardcore, founder and organizer of the yearly TIH fest just 72 hours before opening bells. Check out the interview for the inside scoop on the booking of This Is Hard 2011, and the inside story behind one Philadelphia’s premiere purveyors of hardcore music.
