PhillyShowsFW Shows, and Broken Goblet present NYHC legends Shelter and Civ with Special Guests, Friday, April 5th for an All Ages show at Broken Goblet in Bensalem, PA. Advance tickets are $25 and are on sale NOW!

Formed in 1989 by Ray Cappo after the breakup of Youth of Today, Shelter gained notoriety for blending hardcore punk with elements of Eastern spirituality and philosophy, particularly drawing inspiration from the teachings of the Hare Krishna movement. Cappo’s conversion to the movement significantly influenced Shelter’s lyrical themes and overall message with the band often incorporating spiritual and positive messages in their lyrics, promoting concepts such as vegetarianism, non-violence, and self-realization. Noteable and important releases like Perfection of Desire (1990), Attaining the Supreme (1993), and When 20 Summers Pass (2000), the band has long been regarded as one of the most important to come out of the NY hardcore scene.

With Civ, former frontman for the influential band Gorilla Biscuits, Anthony ‘Civ’ Civarelli brought a melodic edge to hardcore, blending punk rock energy with catchy hooks and anthemic choruses with the release of their debut album, Set Your Goals in 1995. The album showcased the band’s signature sound, featuring melodic guitar riffs, and Civ’s distinctive vocal delivery with songs “Can’t Wait One Minute More” and “Choices Made”. With a lineup made of NYHC standouts, it’s no big secret why Civ has made a lasting impressing on the hardcore scene.

Special Guests to be announced.

Doors are 6:30 PM / All Ages/ Advance Tickets $25 and $30 Day of Show
