Annapolis band The Hated was a pioneer of the emo genre in the ‘80s, before emo became popular, and now the musicians are back. The band is reuniting to play their first show in over 30 years — January 15 at Earleigh Heights Volunteer Fire Company in Severna Park.
This show will be the band’s only East Coast performance as The Hated’s record label, Numero, is re-releasing the band’s material. The Earleigh Heights hall is one place where young Maryland and Washington, D.C. area punk bands played from the mid ‘80s to mid ‘90s.
The opening slot for the show will include performances from several friends of the band, each playing a short acoustic set, including The Deadwood Divine/Tom LoMacchio, Max Ochs, Kevin Barker/Currituck Co., as well as the possibility for a few special surprise guests.
Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 if still available the day of the show. Doors open at 7:00pm, and no one will be admitted once The Hated has taken the stage. This is so that all involved can enjoy this rare performance without interruption, so guests are encouraged to arrive early.
