Photos: Highlights from Raleigh's inaugural To Live A Lie Records Fest

Posted by on Wed, Jan 15, 2014 at 12:21 PM

Fitting several grand punk traditions at once, the Raleigh-based label To Live A Lie Records organized its inaugural festival as an all-ages matinee at In The Groove Records, in the unfinished basement of The Carter Building. From the finicky, borrowed PA to the self-styled collages of patches covering audience members’ jackets and vests, To Live A Lie Records Fest was a decidedly DIY affair. That dovetails well with the label’s modest business model.

Four bands—D.C. punk-meets-metal hybrid Genocide Pact, Raleigh and D.C. grinders Abuse., Arizona powerviolence crushers Sex Prisoner, veteran Florida fastcore outfit Assholeparade—attracted a crowd of more than 50 to the cozy, ad hoc venue.

Now spread between Raleigh and D.C., this served as something of a homecoming for Abuse. The dynamic and volatile grindcore band recently issued its debut LP through To Live A Lie. - PHOTO BY ADAM KISSICK

Capping off the four-band bill, Florida’s Assholeparade proved more dynamic than merely fast. Their 20-minute set contrasted sudden lunges with tense slowdowns. - PHOTO BY ADAM KISSICK
