This is a group intimately familiar with controversy and the band isn’t about to sanitize their opinions or the snarling and unrefined sound that came with it. They received their share of flak, including threats from white supremacy advocates who attended their shows. But it’s not like they would compromise anyway: “MDC is over the top so we’ve never shied away from it. We did this Millions of Damn Christians album and my grandmother hated it. If you’re going to write a song called ‘Millions of Dead Cops,’ then you’re not holding back.”
They play the Mad Hatter at 8 p.m. with Embrace the Kill and Mouth Sewn Shut. Get Sound Advice here.
