Ted Leo to play Maryland Deathfest IX 2011

No that title is not a mis-print. Ted Leo of indie-rock band "Ted Leo and the Pharmacists" will be playing at "America's biggest metal party of the year." Luckily it won't actually be Ted Leo and the Pharmacists playing, instead it will be Ted's old NY hardcore/powerviolence band "Citizens Arrest" who will be reuniting and playing MDF and a couple of NY dates. The band was active from 1989-1991 and also includes Daryl Kahan of Born Against/Funebrarum/Disma fame. It seems that MDF has been branching out more towards the hardcore and powerviolence genres lately. I went to this years fest and my resulting foot pain and empty wallet forced me to choose to not go again next year, but MDF keeps hitting me with these fucking announcements. Citizens Arrest will also play at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn on Friday December 17th. Thanks to
Deadboy for the heads up.
