Every hardcore fan knows that Negative Approach is like the overlooked ugly stepsister of hardcore royalty like Black Flag, Minor Threat, 7 Seconds, and every other band that gets a little more attention than these true early ’80s fire-starters. Heatseekers would be well advised to get to Will’s Pub for Negative Approach’s show this week, where original singer John Brannon will be shredding more than just his vocal cords with his signature intensity. Reunited in 2006, Negative Approach consists now of Brannon and early drummer Chris “Opie” Moore, but Brannon notoriously shut out other members of the classic Negative Approach lineup, preferring instead his Easy Action bandmate Harold Richardson and former Easy Action bandmate Ron Sakowski. NA’s tourmate, Detroit’s Child Bite, should not be overlooked as
intriguing openers with shrill Dead Kennedys-esque vocals and fiercely bouncing riffs.

Negative Approach with Child Bite, Dredger, Sinkholes | 8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 18 | Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | willspub.org | $10-$13
