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!
