Vomit Fist plays Jan. 8, Downfall of Gaia on Jan. 22
The eclectic character of the live music presented at the Beacon club Quinn’s has distinguished it among Hudson Valley venues. They’ve had hardcore punk, experimental noise, Eastern European folk songs, Iranian pop, and jazz every Monday night. Now, they will have heavy metal again, as two shows take place in January.
Vomit Fist, with special guest Mucus, will perform on Thursday, Jan. 8, and the German/U.S. band Downfall of Gaia will make their U.S. debut and open their North American tour at Quinn’s with special guests Yesod and Hush on Thursday, Jan. 22.
Vomit Fist hails from New York City, delivering hard, fast blackened grindcore with ultra-high energy stage performances. Founders Nick Vürdoth Didkovsky and his son Leo Lurkrot Didkovsky teamed up with Malcolm Skrag the Screecher Hoyt and burst onto the underground metal scene in 2013, playing hardcore matinees, all-ages shows, DIY garage events as well as festival dates and club gigs. They released their first EP Forgive but Avenge in July 2014.
Founded in 2008 and having undergone several changes on drums, the quartet Downfall of Gaia is now comprised of Dominik Goncalves dos Reis (guitar and vocals), Peter Wolff (guitar and vocals), Anton Lisovoj (bass and vocals) and Michael Kadnar (drums), who are located in Berlin, Hamburg and New York City. Their debut album Epos was released in 2010, which was realized with the help of several DIY-labels. In 2012, their new doom and sludge sound was heard on their second album, Suffocating in the Swarm of Cranes.
Quinn’s is located at 330 Main St. in Beacon. Each show will begin at 9 p.m. with no cover charge, although donations for the bands will be requested.
