Cro-Mags To Play Two Shows In Minneapolis

Twin Cities Hardcore will host legendary hardcore band Cro-Mags for their first shows in The Cities in over 20 years on July 10 and 11 at The Triple Rock Social Club in Minneapolis. Unfortunately, Cro-Mags never seem to get the full respect they deserve as inventors of what we now know as metalcore. The lineup of Cro-Mags has always fluctuated, and different have claimed ownership of the band name. It appears that the version of Cro-Mags scheduled to play is the one led by vocalist John Joseph McGeown and drummer Mackie Jayson.
Here's some pictures from a Cro-Mags show from San Diego at Canes on February 20, 2000, featuring Harley Flanagan on bass and vocals and Kevin "Parris" Mayhew on guitar. I saw the band again in 2000 or 2001 in Baltimore, and Parris was again gone from the band at that point.
