ITP V.013 WORLD APOCALYPSE: Boston Police Breaking Up Mosh Pits, Wants Them To Be Illegal

moshing photo: moshing. moshing.jpgBoston Massachusetts, known for it's vibrant hardcore and metal core scenes are struggling within the issue of moshing as Boston police authorities are cracking down on mosh pit activities, in part due to the violent 90's Boston HxC pit crews and corruption within those scenes.

Metal and hardcore bands have taken "the pit" to Worcester, Massachusetts music venue "The Palladium" as very few metal bands (the softer ones only) play in the city of Boston anymore. Music venues are fined and "violated" in the context of proposed city ordinances for concert goers moshing, including Boston's "The House Of Blues".
