American Aftermath Exclusive: TRAP THEM Vs. ALL PIGS MUST DIE

Back during SXSW 2011, Thrasher Magazine and Converse shoes put on their yearly Death Match showcase; this year the headlining act was Trap Them. Due to an incident the prior day where All Pigs Must Die set was cut, Trap Them was nice enough to give up half of their set to APMD, but instead of cutting the set short, Trap Them just let APMD set up their gear on stage with TT’s and perform in between Trap Them songs! It was a pretty sweet event and lucky for you guys, I was there to capture it on an SD card.

Posted above is Trap Them’s intro featuring Ben Koller (Converge, All Pigs Must Die) as the second drummer. Posted after the jump is the rest of the show Continue reading

American Aftermath Exclusive: Remember That One Time We Filmed A CONVERGE Set?

It’s Friday again and since Rebecca Black is no longer providing the world with original content, I figure we here at AA should fill the void. As most of you should know by now, everyone at American Aftermath has an erection of massive proportions when it comes to all things Converge. Well on their recent tour outing with Torche and Kvelertak, I snuck a video camera into their stop at Club Dada in Dallas, Texas and here is what ensued –     Continue reading

American Aftermath Exclusive: Watch A Full DEATH GRIPS Set From Last Years Fun Fun Fun Fest


Last November I attended the wonderful Fun Fun Fun Fest in downtown Austin, TX. The act I was most excited to see (not including Danzig playing The Misfits songs :sigh:) was undoubtedly the hip hop phenomenon known as Death Grips. The group played two shows; one night and one day. The footage featured in this article was taken at the night performance.

The bill for the show that night was originally B.L.A.C.K.I.E, Trash Talk, Death Grips and Kool Keith. However, due to some personal issues Trash Talk was unable to perform. Normally, that in and of itself would ruin any show for me, but this was fucking DFGRPZ, and not only that, it was my first time to see them. It’s probably a given due to the amount in which I fan boy over these guys, but the show was fucking amazing… Don’t take my word for it, watch the rest of DFGRPZ set after the jump.

American Aftermath Exclusive: Watch Pretty Much All Of T.R.A.M’s Only Performance


Instrumental jazzy prog band T.R.A.M originally seemed like they were going to make big waves in the undergound music pool, but  now are slowly fading into another forgotten studio project. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this group, the band consists of Tosin Abasi (Animals As Leaders), Javier Reyes (Animals As Leaders), Eric Moore (Suicidal Tendencies)and Adrian Terrazas-Gonzalez (The Mars Volta). To date, T.R.A.M have only played one show.

The only show the group ever played, they headlined and it was a free event during SXSW 2011′ that featured The Faceless and Meek Is Murder. I was lucky enough to attend this show and bootlegged 3 out of the four songs they played. Continue after the jump to watch almost the entire set from the progressive super group (it includes some Eric Moore drum cam style footage).

American Aftermath Exclusive: Watch EARTH CONTROL (Owen Hart) Perform during SXSW ’11

In honor of the news that the wonderful Earth Control will soon be releasing new music, I am going to share a few videos of the band performing at SXSW in 2011. Featured above is a video from the very first time I ever saw the band Owen Hart (now known as Earth Control). In the video the band performs the song “Methlaham” to about 20 people at a Brooklynvegan showcase. Overall it was a good performance but honestly, it’s kind of hard to rage to a band at 11am….

The video below is of the band playing in some random kids garage. It’s pretty awesome, maybe like four kids there have heard of the group, and yet some how they still manage to make the crowd mosh hard enough to short the power out…. At both shows I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to chat with the band’s vocalist for quite some time. He is a stand up dude. Ah, good times..

American Aftermath Exclusive: Watch TRAP THEM & ALL PIGS MUST DIE Perform In Some Kids Garage

A few years back, I attended SXSW in Austin, TX and was looking for a show on twitter when I saw Trap Them tweeted about how they were going to be playing a house show later that night. Needless to say, I attended said show and even got there hours before any decent bands were scheduled to play. The show was in some random hipster kids garage and was nothing but local Austin acts, but since it was SXSW and there were tons of bands looking for a place to play, the show became pretty epic, pretty fast.

Not only did Trap Them agree to play, but so did Owen Hart Earth Control, Touche Amore, Gaza and All Pigs Must Die… So after waiting through all the shitty locals, Owen Hart and Touche went on, then it was a few more hours of waiting before anyone notable played. By this time, it’s getting to be pretty late and by pretty late I mean 2am, and Trap Them, Gaza and All Pigs Must Die have yet to play.

So in order to speed things up and allow enough time for everyone to perform, Trap Them and All Pigs Must Die decided to set up both their equipment at the same time and play dueling sets! After Trap Them’s first song, ironically, the police show up and try to shut the show down before All Pigs Must Die can play one song. The police were not immediately successful in shutting the show and APMD had the balls to play another song before cops could pull the power. The videos of this event are embedded above and below. I hope you enjoy yourself almost a fraction of what I did filming them. Have a nice weekend.

American Aftermath Exclusive: MUNICIPAL WASTE Set Chaos In Tejas ’12

So some of you guys may have noticed that the wolf is back…. Which means it is time for the return of AA’s exclusive bootleg series. This time I am bringing you the (almost) full set from Municipal Waste performance at this years edition of Chaos In Tejas.

Thinking back this show was one of the best MW shows I’ve ever been to. The mix was great, the bands setlist was awesome, the beer was cold and the crowd went fucking wild. It truly was everything you need for a great Waste set. Honestly I don’t remember too much of the show. I just remember throwing beers at nazi punks and stage diving till my entire body was bruised…. Yeah, it really was a good time. Continue after the jump to enjoy the madness –
