When it comes to hardcore punk in Newcastle, nobody does it better than The Lubber Fiend. The non-profit, DIY venue is carving out quite the reputation for its ferocious underground shows, bringing in the most vicious talent from across the region, the country, and, on occasion, beyond. On Saturday 11th February, the Fiend will play host to Does Your Mother Know Fest, a snarling all-dayer boasting an elephantine bill brimming with lethal bands.

Piling in on the carnage will be scene veterans The Flex, still razing stages a decade after their inception, while local rabble-rousers Wise Up and Spit will be hurling their usual dollop of mayhem into the proverbial witches’ brew. From Denmark, Indre Krig will be rolling through the Toon with their signature D-beat goodness, as will feral Leeds-based outfit Motive. Making up the rest of bill are Irish upstarts Goon, black metal punks Mortsafe and promising newcomers Bitchfinder General, with more acts still to be announced.

Advanced tickets for this feast of ferocity are £15, which, in the humble opinion of this writer, feels like an absolute steal for a full Saturday celebrating some of the most bruising bands the hardcore scene has to offer.

Does Your Mother Know Fest takes place at The Lubber Fiend, Newcastle on Saturday 11th February.
