The pending first installment of The Power Of The Riff East is set to overthrow Club Warsaw in Brooklyn in just ten days, on September 1st and 2nd. This week several new ticket and merch options for the fest have been announced as well as several band updates within the massive two-day lineup.
As the kings of punk Poison Idea have canceled all tour dates due to medical issues, Massachusetts-based hardcore warriors Hoax have been added to that day?s list in their place. Additionally, today Metal Blade Records have announced that doom icons Pentagram will be performing their monumental Relentless album in its entirety for the first time since the early 1980s!
The full lineup for The Power Of The Riff East will take place with Pentagram, Agnostic Front, Negative Approach, Xibalba, Alpha & Omega, Hoax and Power Trip playing the first day, and SUNN 0))), Winter, Repulsion, Salvation, Coffinworm, Double Negative and Dead In The Dirt storming day two.
This week new ticket/merch options have been unveiled. 100 fans can now purchase two-day passes to the fest with a Southern Lord vinyl/CD package included, and 50 fans for each night can purchase one-day tickets with a one of 100 limited edition hand-screened, numbered posters for the event [Day One and Day Two].
