better lovers 23

James Hartley

Official press release:

Better Lovers have announced their first annual holiday extravaganza, BLissmass, with the inaugural outing happening on Dec. 8 at Town Ballroom in Buffalo, N.Y.

Tickets for the special event, which also features openers It Dies Today, The Callous Daoboys, Greyhaven, and Spaced, are on-sale this Friday, Oct. 6, at 10 am eastern.

Better Lovers shared the following:

We are proud to announce BLissmass! Our 1st annual holiday show/festival! We couldn't be more excited to perform, host and welcome everyone to Buffalo in December once again. Being back on the road this year and talking to all of you, we realized how much this weekend means to everyone and it became a tradition that was dearly missed by many. This band had its first ever practice, songs written, and shows played, in Buffalo. This show is special to us, and it's special to the city.

We will host a toy drive for Toys For Tots, a non-profit public charity that distributes toys to less fortunate children. We encourage attendees to donate a new, unwrapped toy in exchange for a free gift at our merch table.

We thank It Dies Today, The Callous Daoboys, Greyhaven, and Spaced for being part of this inaugural show, and we can't wait to kick this off and watch it grow for years to come.

12/08 Buffalo, NY @ Town Ballroom

47 year old vegan aspiring tattoo artists are stoked

anonymous 285 days ago

Hoping they play only ETID cover songs.

anonymous 285 days ago

Right wing qanon quacks are stoked too

anonymous 285 days ago

Will be leaving after The Callous Daoboys

anonymous 285 days ago

Really love this for callous daoboys. 2007 spazcore throwbacks that deserves zero recognition getting pushed to the top of every lineup and tier in music today just to fall off and be completely irrelevant in two years just makes my day. Webby is stoked for the clicks.

anonymous 285 days ago

They're still trying to make this dallous caoboys band a thing? Come on man (insert Charles Barkley voice)

anonymous 285 days ago

Give it a fu cking rest already with Spaced - they're garbage. LOL @ them trying to recreate TID The Season. You're not Every Time I Die. T-minus how many posts after this one until one from the Scott Vogel stalker who constantly rants about Scott is a Buffalo public school janitor when not on tour? I say four posts.

Whatever happened to Todd Jones? I would love to get his opinion on this. He stopped gracing us with his presence.

anonymous 285 days ago

1500 capacity venue. Bet it sells out the first day

anonymous 285 days ago

Ben Weinman here. This band would be a lot better without Greg

anonymous 285 days ago

Buffalo is old news. Syracuse is now the best city to play

anonymous 285 days ago

Keith is not stoked

anonymous 285 days ago

1500 capacity venue. Bet it sells out the first day Bet you won't receive a penny simping for it & you'll have to pay to get in. Wait you're the fu cknutjob who constantly rambles on about Harm's Way, Scowl & Turnstile selling out all their shows & Scott Vogel being a janitor when not making 10K a show playing VFW halls right? Yep.

anonymous 285 days ago

Buffalo is old news. Syracuse is now the best city to play ^^^ Same moron from the Madball comments who insists Syracuse is dead.

anonymous 285 days ago

^lol at Vogel only getting $10K per gig. More like $110K, nerd.

anonymous 285 days ago

Lame ass lineup. Better Lovers is good but their name is lame but they will be a big draw anyway

anonymous 285 days ago

Isn't Earth Crisis from Syracuse, NY? Karl broke vegan a long ass time ago. Which is understandable but is he still claiming?

anonymous 285 days ago

Callous Daoboys are the most overrated band of this decade. no one will care about them in 2025.

anonymous 285 days ago

What's goin' on with that b dubs deal? 20% off for real? Thanks scat from kowl. Up the mf punx!

anonymous 285 days ago

anonymous 285 days ago

anonymous 27 minutes ago Kat from Scowl here, If you are in the mood for Wings Beers and Sports, Buffalo Wild Wings has you covered. Just mention Andy Williams at any of our Buffalo locations and receive a coupon for 20% off. Up the punx Karl from xEarth Crisisx here. I LOVE chicken wings, especially from BWW. Thanks for the tip, Kat. You are sexy and talented but also a very kind person

anonymous 285 days ago

Isn't Earth Crisis from Syracuse, NY? Karl broke vegan a long ass time ago. Which is understandable but is he still claiming? Since when did Karl "break vegan"? He looks like he has a lot of starch, salt & sodium from all the fake meat he eats.

anonymous 285 days ago

Todd Jones broke edge.

anonymous 285 days ago

Who is this Cat from Scroll everyone is talking about on here?

anonymous 285 days ago

Todd Jones here. Long story short but right in that sweet spot between when the boyos Triscuit and Jigglez holographically left NAILS and when Jeff Buckley left TAD, your mans traded that missing Ford-class A1B Nuclear Carrier Reactor I had tucked away in the mineshafts of the NAILS Abandoned Cadmium Mine Facility Near Hines Peak for a sesh with The Magellan Device. I immediately transported my frost perihelion-kissed frame to the parallel Universe wherein this blood-soaked alpha champion assumes control of BL. To ensure my success, my first move in the new reality was to pay a visit to Guy Picciotto's residence. Whoever finds him will see what it is like when someone's consciousness is put into a 1-second repeating loop for eternity while their body survives as normal, and that 1-second moment is the sacred ceremonial dimensional blade, BLOODWHIP, doused in soul-penetrating poison, being mercilessly plunged into their solar plexus. HIDE. VISIONS. LATERED. He will never be one of us.

anonymous 285 days ago

The king returns!!!!!

anonymous 285 days ago

We need more Todd Jones appearances and less of that severely ocd guy who won't shut up about scott vogel, turnstile, scowl, buffalo, Syracuse, etc. That guy is an autistic retard and should stop posting forever

anonymous 285 days ago

Greg is literally 5'2"

anonymous 285 days ago

Bravo Todd Jones

Bortslob 285 days ago

Yes! Todd Jones is back

anonymous 285 days ago

"We need more Todd Jones appearances and less of that severely ocd guy who won't shut up about scott vogel, turnstile, scowl, buffalo, Syracuse, etc. That guy is an autistic retard and should stop posting forever" ^ That's you, dipshit

Band sucks ass

anonymous 285 days ago

Guys, it is Srj tmkn! Please forgive me I'm late but I'm here now. I ❤ dick Lol! 🔥

anonymous 285 days ago

Everything these days is no fun. You put out an album and nobody pays for it, you have to resort to making a bogus gofundme to pay the bills. You do drugs or have a reputation for it and the cops are on your ass. You bang some groupies and a few of them will get together, concoct a story, and say you r*ped them or if they're being nice only claim it was a sexual assault. Nobody at concerts pays attention to the show because they are too busy filming it for Instagram and would rather watch it on hate5six even though literally 5000 other people are as well and a good chunk of those will be on YouTube the next day. Take me back to summer 2004 when everyone was enjoying a perfect murder without a cell phone in sight and podcasts wern't buying tickets in disguise as organic fans.

anonymous 285 days ago

^truth

anonymous 285 days ago

^^ This. Make music great again!

anonymous 285 days ago

Take me back to summer 2004 when everyone was enjoying a perfect murder without a cell phone in sight and podcasts wern't buying tickets in disguise as organic fans. >>> So you're saying Hardlore (who else?) bought x amount of tickets to the Harm's Way show at Metro in Chicago to push it to a sellout? You're right. None of you numbnuts find it strange that that show is the ONLY sold out HW show? As for 2004, ok, well why not ban cellphones from shows? Make people check in their phones like coats. As for podcasts, they're good if they're more people getting things off their chest than having their asses kissed by the host/s. EVERY podcast is one big stroke fest. Interview Joe Hardcore & ask him what drugs he was on to say people deserved to die in a fire? He'd hang up & look like an ass & a coward. Interview Taylor Young & ask him why he a grown man is begging people for money to pay for a new place to live & record. Challenge these fu cks.

anonymous 285 days ago

Interview Sunny Singh & ask him when is he gonna compensate the bands he films from the money he makes off of them. Interview any NYHC band who formed before 2000 & ask them what are they still doing around in 2023. Interview Scowl & ask them why are they using hardcore as a stepping stone. Challenge these fu cks.

Sick, spaced is donny from liferuiner and cute is what we aim fors new band

anonymous 285 days ago

Spaced blows. Buffalo is so far up it's own ass it's laughable.

anonymous 285 days ago

Buffalo is so far up its own ass it's laughable. ^^^ We collectively have an inferiority complex and like taking care of our own. Eat shit pussy! Stay out!

You most definitely have an inferiority complex. You're losers who flock to an annual show but show up in double digits for everything else that's real hardcore. Stay out? I already do dipsh it.

anonymous 284 days ago

I'll be online waiting for 10 am tomorrow to get my ticket. This will sell out in the first day just like Harms Way show at the Metro did
