Just before The FEST 9 (2010) in Gainesville, FL, NYC’s Bridge and Tunnel suffered a setback that would cause most bands to cancel. Guitarist Rachel Rubino broke her wrist in a bicycle accident meaning she would not be able to play. The band opted instead to play a cover set of hardcore songs as a three piece with Rubino on vocals. Arguably the most talked about set that year, these recordings were pressed to vinyl for a limited 7″ insert in the band’s 2011 LP, Rebuilding Year on No Idea Records.

Last weekend, a few folks from the National Underground crew traveled to Durham, NC for this year’s Death to False Hope Fest. Aside from having a great time and partying, new friends were made. Making new friends is always great, but fortunately for the site one of these new friends happened to have a camera and was able to capture footage of several bands over the course of the weekend! Read more for the videos (there are several to check out!) and a big thanks goes out to our new buddy Lyz at Candy Apple Red for capturing the footage!
Archers of Loaf recently performed a reunion show in their hometown of Chapel Hill. According to an article on The Vine, as well as reports from Twitter and the Merge Records forums, the performance included the original lineup of the band: Eric Bachman, Matt Gentling, Mark Price and Eric Johnson. The show was unannounced and “secret”, yet some footage was captured from the set and we’re excited to repost and pass it along.
After the departure of George Rebelo (of Hot Water Music) last year, Against Me! recently enlisted Jay Weinberg to take over duties behind the drumset.
Today’s video features OK Pilot performing “Blackeyes & Daggers” during Alien Fest 2010.
National Underground is excited to bring you live video featuring The Lawrence Arms performing “Are You There, Margaret? It’s Me, God” from their 2006 album Oh! Calcutta!. The footage was filmed by our friends in Vinyl Vlog at T.T. the Bear’s in Cambridge, MA.
Today’s video features hardcore punk supergroup No Friends performing “Broken Windows” and “Loaded Question” at The Atlantic in Gainesville, FL during The Fest 9. Also, like many other instances, thanks goes out to Jeremy Silveira for filming this and for continuing to provide consistently great footage for us to post for our readers.

Another Fest was coming to a close, so everyone’s spirits were starting to get a little low. Luckily, we had Frank Turner to bring it all to a close for us at 8 Seconds and pick us all back up. From my vantage point on the stage, I could see everyone in the crowd smiling and singing along, even though it was such a departure from most of the music at the Fest. How often do you see crowd surfing to an acoustic singer-songwriter? Never, in my experience anyway. I was too excited to really hold the camera as steady as I could, just because I wanted to join in singing with everyone. There was a perfect blend of old material, a dash of new, and even a cover with a very special guest. This was a fantastic end to one of the best weekends of my life. Until next year of course.
