Hold on to your hats — hardcore punk heavyweights Trash Talk just announced a show at Gabe’s on Monday, Nov. 13, presented by Black Clapton. Opening will be Iowa City’s own thrash-punks In the Mouth of Radness and hardcore-grind four piece Closet Witch. Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door. It’s an all ages show with doors opening at 6 p.m. and show starting at 7 p.m.

In 2014 Trash Talk played an exceptionally wild show at The Mill. The mostly Los Angles-based four piece were fresh off the release No Peace and on a sponsored tour that announced venues only days ahead of the show; all of those shows were free and all ages.

Since then the band has opened Babylon, a Los Angeles store and hangout where you can purchase clothes from the Babylon clothing line or skate the bowl. In 2015 they self-released the Tangle EP through their website. It’s sure to be a wild show and it will be over early enough that you shouldn’t have any problems getting up for work or school in the morning — although you may have some ringing in your ears. Here’s a track off of 2014’s No Peace:
