"Serial Hawk will knock you on your ass, but they don’t strike quickly. Their crushing blows are slow and purposeful, like the booby trap in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, where Indiana and Short Round are nearly bludgeoned with those giant, skull-covered spikes (that is, until Willie reaches into that disgusting bug hole to pull the release lever—gross). The riffs are heavy, the tempo is magmatic, and each beat lingers in the air for just a tiny moment longer than expected, taunting you. It’ll be a perfect follow-up to Monogamy Party’s wiry, hyperactive thrashing. And in case you missed the great news, the Highline has brought back its food service, so get to the show early, fill your belly with all the vegan grub you can eat, and headbang till you puke!"
