Monday 9/21/15


The latest, seventh chapter of the street racing porn turned heir apparent to the so awful it’s awesome Transporter series, Furious 7, hits DVD and Blu Ray this week. Give Paul Walker the sendoff her deserves at The Troc’s Movie Monday. As always 3 bucks gets you in the door and goes towards a drink or snack. Click Here for more info.


Tuesday 9/22


Metal gods Motorhead are back on the warpath after several cancelled shows and headed for the Tower Theater. Fellow legends Anthrax and local hard rockers Crobot open the show. Click Here for more info.

Thursday 9/24


We caught Bardus last month at Underground Arts opening for Mutoid Man and were highly impressed by the Philly three piece’s melodic hardcore/sludge metal attack. They’ll be headlining their own gig at Kung Fu Necktie with fellow locals Hells and Ohio’s Bridesmaids. Click Here for more info.



Wrestling legend Mick Foley mandible claws the stage at Helium Comedy Club with his hilariously irreverent hybrid of stand up and spoken word. Click Here for more info.

Next Week: As the dust clears from the papal visit Papa Emeritus rises! Also, dreampop heroes CHVURCHES return to the area and local noise punkers Fight Amp invade a batting cage. STAY TUNED!



Kevin Hawkey is the co-founder, head writer and editor of Riot-Nerd. He enjoys Fighting Games, Metal, Marvel, Horror and all the weird shit in between. A lifelong Philadelphian just as comfortable in a circle pit at Underground Arts as he is drooling over the new Hot Toys figures at Brave New Worlds, Kevin’s idiosyncratic sensibility gives this site it’s unique dichotomy between “riot” and “nerd”.
