We don’t get too many straight power/prog metal bands playing the bar.  It’s seems to be a very European thing and as far as our scene here in Brooklyn, it’s pretty non-existant.  Dark Empire not only exist but they fucking rip!  I can’t wait.

Brooklyn Vegan brings us Mares of fucking Thrace 5/15/12

Ok, i was skeptical. I’ll admit it. Then i saw this. Holy fucking heavy! Combine that with a band that literally shook the entire block the last time they played, Battilus and Brooklyn’s own girls de force, Mortals, we have a tuesday to be reckoned with!


We’ve been open 1 Year! These sorts of accomplishments deserve recognition, especially  in the harsh NYC environment, so why not a full week of it!!! It’s a full blown celebration! It starts on Monday April 23rd with some incredible jesus lizard/ shoegazey tinged post-hardcore from Louisville in the form of Young Widows. Tuesday, April 24th, brings […]

Marston lends his quick hands […]

Faster Pussycat turns Manhattan Ave into the Sunset Strip

THE SOLO SHOW!!! Julie Christmas, Steve Brodsky, Kevin Hufnagel

This is a special treat brought to you on Feb 4th by 1000 knives at Saint Vitus Bar. Julie Christmas is the amazing voice of the equally amazing Made Out of Babies and Battle of Mice. Her solo effort “The Bad Wife” came out in 2010 and is a hauntingly beautiful art rock effort.  Check […]

Jan 30th is Black Monday at Saint Vitus Bar

I’m really excited about this show, even if i have to sling drinks during it. USBM style!!!

Got Djent? Ever Forthright, Ultrageist, The Binary Code Jan 26 @ Saint Vitus

Djent[1] is a heavy metal music subgenre that emerged as a spin-off from progressive metal.[2][3] Coined by the band Meshuggah, it was popularized through the internet by Periphery, specifically guitarist Misha Mansoor. The word “djent” is an onomatopoeia for a heavily palm-muted, distorted guitar chord. Typically, the word is used to refer to music that […]
