Preview: Negative Approach at Ace of Cups

From the August 30, 2012 edition

It’s hard to imagine many hardcore shows as momentous as a visit from Detroit legends Negative Approach. Frontman John Brannon’s newish band Easy Action played Ace of Cups last December, but this is on another level — the band behind 1983’s genre-defining “Tied Down” LP and dozens of the most aggressive blasts of disenchanted bile in recorded history.

Dayton’s acclaimed Dogfight and reunited locals Absolute Magnitude will do their best to wear you out before NA takes the stage.
