DIY music company Bright & Barrow Records releases their first Cause A Scene compilation on Aug. 31, showcasing pure punk rock from NYC/NJ-based bands such as Stewart, House Boat, A Clear Blurr, and Bad Whoremoans that is sure to rip regurgitated pop-punk a new hole. Or six. The record release show takes place on Sept. 3 at Arlene’s Grocery in NY where Banquets, The Tattle Tales, Up For Nothing, and Step Aside will no doubt tear up the stage. So polish the spikes on your leather jacket and head out. $10, 21+ only. Doors 7 p.m.
