Ending a sold-out set at NY’s Terminal 5 last night Refused singer Dennis Lyxsen declared the band wouldn’t be gotten by boredom tonite. Less than an hour later we got word through the grape vine the band would be playing a one off secret gig at the Archeron space in Bushwick. 20 Minutes later the word was out, the line was around the block and this is what went down.
Video after the jump. Special thanks to Rich Hall and 1000 Knives productions!
Our boys Unstoppable Death Machines will be hitting the road. The band will be touring out to Texas this week for SXSW and just released this awesome new video flyer with even more footage from their video release party.
Our friends Unstoppable Death Machines just did a music video release for their epic jam Space Time Continuum at Present Co. in Brooklyn at the end of January. When it got to the end of the set people went apeshit all over the band’s art installation and basically wrecked the place.
Watch the whole clip to witness the havoc the band and their fans let loose on this unsuspecting art gallery.
We’ve been going through the vaults to pull all our favorite videos. We didn’t really have a name for this part of the blog before so now we’re calling it Best Of Shows. Check out this video of The Dwarves from last July, performing Unrepentant at Webster Hall, featuring the Fresh Prince Of Darkness himself: Blag Dahlia and a very special guest appearance She Who Cannot Be Named.
After their sold-out Bowery Ballroom show with Alexisonfire and La Dispute, Trash Talk hopped the bridge to Brooklyn to throw down a secret show with Cerebral Ballzy for our friends 1000 Knives and music blog Brooklyn Vegan. Here is Trash Talk laying down some straight up thrash at Archeron on Waterbury St. in Bushwick. We may post some more footage next week.
If you didn’t go to the Thrasher Skate Rock show this past Tuesday at the Autumn Bowl in Greenpoint, Brooklyn you are basically an asshole. Here’s some video we shot of our boy Dino thrashing the ramp. Epic.
The Specials played their first American show in 30 Years last night on The Jimmy Fallon Show. A few of us were lucky enough to be in the audience. Check the video below of The Specials playing A Message To You (Rudy) and Little Bitch after the bump.

It’s been a rough first half of the year. Malcolm Mclaren died yesterday. He was 64. Though he will undoubtedly be best remembered for his work as manager for UK punk rock act The Sex Pistols (and slightly less for his role as impresario for the red-patent-leather-commie era New York Dolls) his contributions to fashion, music, and popular culture could quite plausibly be described as “immeasurable”. Nearly everything Mclaren touched has influenced the work we do here at Riot Style. To say that Jamie Reid, Vivianne Westwood and Malcolm Mclaren are our style and design forebearers would be an understatement. They brought art to terrible music, and music to terrible art. They brought situationism to the mainstream and the underground to market. We would go so far as to say we ripped them all off… Viva cash. Viva chaos.
As a tribute, Here’s part 1 of a two part video interview SUPREME conducted with Malcolm as a part of their Spring / Summer 09 collection based on the Duck Joint / Buffalo Gals / Duck Rock era work of Mclaren, Keith Haring and the world famous Supreme Team DJ crew.
