K Pit Sharptooth

Watch Sharptooth Rip The Head Off Of A Tiny Brooklyn Dive Bar

Hardcore firebrands Sharptooth turn a Brooklyn dive bar into a feeding frenzy in the latest installment of the K! Pit.

When noise-rock savants Daughters brought ritualistic chaos to the Brooklyn version of our K! Pit series, where insane bands play small rooms full of their most diehard fans, we knew we couldn’t go weirder or more esoteric. Instead, we had Baltimore hardcore up-and-comers Sharptooth roll through our favorite Brooklyn dive bar The Gutter and give us thirty rabid minutes of their own high-energy, politically conscious hardcore.

The result was more like stepping into a river full of piranha than a traditional concert. Without hesitation, the band launched into a total melee of a performance, with frontwoman Lauren Kashan whipping the audience into a frenzy with her shrieked and bellowed vocals. Meanwhile, bassist Phil Rasinski and guitarists Keith Higgins and Lance Donati bounced around the stage and tangled themselves in their cords like men possessed. But it was when Lauren leapt into the crowd, chatting with bloody audience members and scaling tables to rally the ladies in the audience, that attendees truly felt like the cow being lowered into the raptor cage.

Watch Sharptooth wreak total havoc below:

Describing their song Fuck You Donald Trump, Lauren said, “It’s… a general anthem against the administration, but I know that many of us as individuals have observed specific things that Trump has done that affected us each differently. For me personally, the thing that impacted me the most was all of the sexual assault allegations against him and the flippancy with which his comments against women have been treated by his administration and the people who voted for him.”
