Fear not: D.C. hardcore is alive and well in 2017. And not, as you might suspect, just as an empty echo of its salad days – look no further for a perfect snapshot of the modern capital sound than the twin pairing of Give and Protester, bands who pay due respect to their history while still managing to carve out a space that’s entirely their own. Give is a love letter to D.C.’s now-infamous Revolution Summer, but not a tribute – post-hardcore unafraid to branch into grunge and psychedelic sounds. Playing powerful hardcore punk grounded in the early-’80s Northeast (now with a metallic twinge, as per March’s Hide From Reality LP), Protester takes a stand so fresh that they’ll likely go down as the definitive straight-edge band of our time. When they play alongside Triple-B Records standout Unified Right and Orlando’s fast-charging Flamethrower, don’t expect anything less than a testimony to today’s real-deal hardcore.

with Protester, Unified Right, Flamethrower | 9 p.m. Saturday, June 17 | Stardust Video & Coffee, 1842 E. Winter Park Road | stardustie.com | $5-$7
