Posi in Effect

Following on the heels of Daytona's "This Is for You Fest," the Blackbirds, Years From Now, XRadical AttackX, Another Breath, About to Snap, Cross Examination, and Sick of Talk head to Delray Beach to end the year with a hardcore bang. With a few local stragglers also onboard (Barriers Now Bridges, Stop This Fall, Braindead, and Suicide Youth Movement), the bill's chock-full of punk, hardcore, post-rock, and other thrash- and pogo-worthy sounds. This show isn't for tough guys and Gold's Gym rejects; it's for the posi kids, a new breed of hardcore fan who's wholly nonviolent and, you know, positive (hence the name). And it's further proof that Backbone Music is southern Palm Beach County's top DIY venue.

Blackbirds, Years From Now, XRadical AttackX, Another Breath, About to Snap, Cross Examination, Sick of Talk, Barriers Now Bridges, Stop This Fall, Braindead, and Suicide Youth Movement perform starting at 1 p.m. Sunday, December 31, at Backbone Music, 61 SE Fourth Ave., Delray Beach. Admission costs $10 to $12. Call 561-266-2663, or visit www.myspace.com/backbonemusic.
