Revelation Records "Rev 25" New York City Irving Plaza Oct 11-14, 2012 Poster
Revelation Records is a hardcore label. Founded in 1987 by Youth Of Today's Ray Cappo and Jordan Cooper, the label originally focused its efforts on documenting the hardcore scene in New York City. Ray and Jordan were both from Connecticut, and the label was based out of New Haven, but the scene was in the city, with bands like WarZone, Sick Of It All, Gorilla Biscuits, and more. Ray left and Jordan eventually moved the label to California, but along the way they put out seminal records from a wide ranging group of bands from the likes of Texas Is The Reason, Into Another, Rage Against The Machine, and more. In 2012, the label celebrated its 25th anniversary with weekend fests in California, New York, and Chicago. The New York edition was held at Irving Plaza and featured performances by Youth Of Today, Bold, Chain Of Strength, Into Another, Texas Is The Reason, and many more. One notable error on this poster is the inclusion of Project X, who didn't play but who we can assume were maybe supposed to at one point. This original Rev 25 poster is in excellent condition.
