In the song "Hoods Up" from its latest release, The Note
has a few requests for listeners: "Tell me that this is still for the kids, by the kids, about the fucking kids/Tell me that we have not become just as cheap as everyone else." It's no wonder that they may have some doubts; with nearly a decade under their belt, these Bostonians have watched the hardcore scene change multiple times. But despite the fads and trends that have come and gone in the past ten years, Bane has stuck to its positive take on traditional Boston hardcore. With up-and-comers This Is Hell
rounding out the bill, this may be the hardcore show of the summer.
