Thursday To-Do: Bane

BANE
7 p.m., Downtown Music. $12.

Meet my housemate, Ethan. Ethan is a happy soul, a wildly intelligent, 6'4" Boston native studying law at UALR. Ethan loves bicycles, debating copyright law, photography and this stuff friends call "bean muck," a muddy, grayish protein-bomb of boiled black beans and spice. More than all this, Ethan loves hardcore punk from his native Massachusetts, especially Bane. At least once a week, you can find Ethan, all high on bean muck, fistpumping by himself in the living room to his Bane 7"s. Ethan tells me the act is legendary in hardcore, thanks to the anthemic and defiantly positive voice they embody in a sea of angry punks. The other day, Ethan played me a few songs by the legends of the genre, like "Superhero," a straight-edged praise for people who quit smoking, and "Swan Song," a chunking shout-along specially made for live shows. Ethan was happy I liked the music as much as I did. Ethan also assures me that Bane fans are many. And passionate. And nice guys who refuse to hurt people at punk shows. Just like Ethan himself. From what Ethan told me, this should be a great show and a rare treat for hardcore fans in Arkansas. Take it from Ethan, our friendly neighborhood expert on all things hardcore: This is a must-do for punk aficionados. Bane is joined by tour mates Trapped Under Ice, Cruel Hand and Alpha and Omega.
