[live preview] Choke Up!’s homecoming show, Sunday @ Wacky Kastle

 Choke Up!

Everyone's favorite local melodic-upbeat-hardcore outfit CHOKE UP! are about to return from a three week tour during which drummer Harley Cox turned 21 (which he notes has been "rad but not drastically different than before," except now band mates make him do the beer runs). Other notable tour adventures included cliff jumping at the quarries in Bloomington, IN and "hanging hard with kids from Kalamazoo, Michigan," Cox tells us.

Choke Up!'s return to Allston this Sunday, July 10, for a homecoming show at the Wacky Kastle. They'll be playing with tour mates from Pennsylvania, the GREEK FAVORITES along with FURNACE who bring the beards and are "the Boston stoner punk staple." EX-MAGICIANS --  featuring members of Allston's now defunct punk band KILL CONRAD and tongue-in-cheek sensitive/self-deprecating singer/songwriter Jake Jenkins -- have joined forces to bring their version of nice-guy punk to Sunday's show.
