“Razors in the Night is a well-measured blend of Oi!-brand camaraderie and hardcore muscle, all of it punk lean.” – Boston by Beat
“Tijuana Sweetheart plays rock ‘n’ roll – fast, dirty, loud rock ‘n’ roll.” – Boston Herald
Get ready to scream away your winter blues – Razors in the Night and Tijuana Sweetheart will be getting the band(s) back together for a single blowout “family reunion” show at Sonia in Cambridge on Saturday, January 22, 2022.
Presented by Grayskull Booking, this will be the first show in nearly a decade for the bands — both former mainstays of the Allston punk/hardcore scene. To celebrate the event, the bands are recording a split 7” with Ryan Stack Music that will be available for digital purchase (because vinyl production delays are real, yoinks!) at the show.
Razors in the Night (2010 nominees for Best New Act and Best Punk Act by the Boston Phoenix) will revive their brand of Oi!/hardcore punk, featuring members of the original lineup – Troy Schoeller on vocals, Swid Swiderek on bass, Ian Clark and Todd Wilson on guitar — as well as support by Devon Hunt and Joe Riot of Brix’n Mortar.
Tijuana Sweetheart (2009 and 2011 Boston Music Award nominees for Punk Act of the Year, and featured on the video games Guitar Hero 2, Rock Band, and Rock Band 4) will feature their complete final lineup – The Hellion on vocals/guitar, LoWreck on drums, Julie Two Times on bass, and Keri Medeiros on lead guitar — as well as guest appearances by former members Smokey and Ivahna Rock.
Supporting the reuniting bands will be 2019 Boston Music Award Punk/Hardcore Artist of the Year SkyTigers and Boston punk malcontents Nothing But Enemies.
Doors will be at 8pm with the following set times:
- Razors in the Night: Midnight
- Tijuana Sweetheart: 11pm
- SkyTigers: 10pm
- Nothing But Enemies: 9pm
