For a time in the mid-'90s, Sick Of It All was a more than worthy emissary for hardcore culture on MTV. We remember seeing their videos on Beavis & Butt-Head — "Premature Evacuation," from 1994 major-label debut Scratch the Surface, to be exact. We even saw an MTV News profile on the band around 1996, which more than likely came with a snide intro from talking head Kurt Loder. The long-running band, formed by the acrobatic Peter Koller and brother Lou in 1986, was a part of hardcore's new guard of the late '80s, coming up with fellow scene-stealers like the Gorilla Biscuits, Madball and Judge. Anyone who has a passing interest in hardcore should be at this gig to see a chapter of its history in a live setting. Sunday at Walter's, they'll be joined by Maine's Outbreak and Houston's own legacy-holders Will To Live.
