Never before in the history of time has there been such an assembly of the sickest bands ever on a Wednesday night. 

Say Hello to your Wednesday Hump-Day Cure, The MID WEEK MEAT GRINDER!

Featuring the most brutal, vile and filthy acts ever to defile the stage of Bar Open, this show is guaranteed to get your juices flowing inside and out! The once in a lifetime lineup consists of MAGGOT BATH, ABU GHRAIB, SPEW BALLOON and MINDRIPPA. This is the show you’ve been dreaming about since you were just a wee tacka!

First up we have Mindrippa, a brutal sonic assault that promises to leave your cerebral cortex in absolute tatters!

Abu Ghraib will then execute the most ruthless, relentless and uncompromising old school black/death/thrash/grind you will ever hear. Torture Death Grind at it’s most opulent!

Maggot Bath are our final act, delivering the fatal blow to whatever remains of your shattered body and soul. Grinding, thrashing and sludging their way to aural oblivion!
