The Toronto hardcore band known as Fucked Up is coming back to Austin. I wouldn't normally care much about a hardcore show, as hardcore is one of the things that I am not, but I did stumble upon this band at SXSW last year and enjoy the show thoroughly. It's nothing outrageous, just a dangerously good time.
Take a look at the video above (their first) to get an idea of what you can expect. And if you're into it, check out their 2008 release on Matador Records, The Chemistry of Common Life. It ended up on quite a few best-of-the-year lists.
Fucked Up are at Emo's on Saturday, January 31. Free tickets are here.
