Going into its fourth year of existence, Boston-based event America's Hardcore Fest decided to refocus itself towards relief efforts in Puerto Rico, and all proceeds were directed to helping the hurricane-ravaged island. However, the cause had little to no bearing on the curation of the festival, which featured a who's who across the hardcore and punk landscapes over its two days and three gigs at the Middle East and Hardcore Stadium in Cambridge. Scroll down for Angela Owens' sweaty, in-the-action photos of Krimewatch, Red Death, Fury, Concealed Blade and more at AHC 2017.
