Backslider, Knife Hits

When: Fri., Dec. 19, 9 p.m. 2014

Formerly Orlando hardcore punks Backslider and Knife Hits both relocated to Philly, but every year around this time, there’s a holiday homecoming, and Uncle Lou’s whips up an enthusiastic crowd in response, especially supported by (thank- fully) still-locals False Punk and Neat Freak.
