From a press release:

The cheers from the crowd, the energetic thrash attack, soul-shaking energy, the intimate Jazz Cafe… all of this can only mean one thing – there is a killer show happening!

On Saturday, Oct. 22 at 9 p.m., the River Street Jazz Cafe (667 N. River St., Plains) will be throwing a “thrash bash” that recalls the classic days underground of thrash metal and punk shows with headliner Extinction A.D. from Long Island, New York and local bands The Disorders, Balero, and Bloodeagle.

The show is 21+, and tickets are $7 at the door. Halloween costumes are encouraged.

For fans of Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax, and Havok, Extinction A.D. – comprised of frontman Rick Jimenez and ex-This Is Hell bandmates Pieter van den Berg and Mike Sciulara, as well as Long Island native Ian Cimaglia – deliver thrash metal in its truest form, showing love for early greats like Testament, Slayer, and Metallica while dazzling with 2016 power and precision.

The band formed in 2013 and has been releasing music and touring steadily since, performing with Unearth, Municipal Waste, Havok, Testament, Exodus, Shadows Fall, From Autumn to Ashes, Toxic Holocaust, Kvelertak, Nuclear Assault, Venom, D.R.I., The Red Chord, Bane, Act of Defiance, Cro-Mags, Voivod, Vision of Disorder, and many more. Their full-length debut album, “Faithkiller,” was recorded and mixed by Brett Romnes (I Am the Avalanche, Anthony Raneri) and mastered by Brad Boatright (Nails, Noisem).

If you like your old school punk rude and raunchy, then The Disorders are for you. For fans of the Ramones, Misfits, Dead Kennedys, Iggy and the Stooges, Dead Boys, and The Clash, The Disorders maintain that every gig should be a party or it ain’t worth doing, so if you’re looking to get crazy, then jump up and sing along, dance, dive, or just stand there until you can’t stand no more. Like a oldies band for punks, crowd participation is always encouraged, and booze consumption is inevitable with these Wyoming Valley punkers.

Heavy riff band Balero bring fast and heavy grooves from the Wyoming Valley. Celebrating their latest CD release, “The Impossible Crusade,” Balero plays all instrumental originals for fans of Fu Manchu, Karma to Burn, and Orange Goblin.

Kingston thrash metal outfit Bloodeagle shred with songs about bloody wars waged against acts of oppression, government, and religion. Their new demo, “Ascension,” is in the final stages of mixing and will be available soon.
