I saw the Brooklyn based band Hard Nips in their Providence debut last weekend at AS220’s Foo Fest. These four Japanese girls (although they had a male drummer for this show) know how to get a crowd going! People were jumping and moshing to every song, and at least one fight nearly broke out in front of me. The band is very different live than their recorded songs would lead you to believe. They put on a very high energy and insane live show that really has to be experienced in person, plus they will throw Nips candy at you. Of course, their motto seems to be “sex, sushi, and rock n roll” and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that!
And here’s some crazy video I took of them playing during Foo Fest at AS220:
