Kid Dynamite reunited around this time last year for the a sold out This is Hardcore festival in Philadelphia and have been quiet since. However, the news has just come in that they will be regrouping at this years Fun Fun Fun fest in Austin, Texas. We were quite pleased by the announcement, but even more excited that they will be joined by From Ashes Rise and Paint It Black. The full schedule will be released in September, but a quick browse of the festival site reveals other artists include Public Enemy, Slayer, Odd Future, and Hum.
Fun Fun Fun Fest 2011
Auditorium Shores – Austin, TX
From Ashes Rise’s first visit to the East Coast in years is upon us and the band has announced two shows following Philadelphia’s sold out This Is Hardcore fest. The band will headline a second Philadelphia show at the Barbary after their daytime performance at the fest. The following night, fans in New York City will be treated at Public Assembly. If you weren’t able to get tickets to This Is Hardcore, here are two more opportunities to catch From Ashes Rise before they return to Portland. After returning home, the band will head up to Seattle for the Power of the Riff show and last but surely not least is the Fun Fun Fun Festival in Austin, TX.

Leather has departed the sweltering streets of Philadelphia in favor of the stuffy confines of an overcrowded van for the next several weeks as they make their way half way across the country and back. The band will have copies of the Sterile 7" in hand at each show, so be sure to track them down to get a copy before heading home.
