Trash Talk is undoubtedly one of the most hyped bands in (and out of) hardcore right now.

The Cali crew is the product of spending most of this past decade in a van, traveling across the country to crush audiences, night after night.

However, recent years have seen the group enjoy some serious crossover love, thanks to its relationship with the Odd Future crew, albums produced by legends like Steve Albini, and more than a handful of major festival gigs.

Last night, Trash Talk returned to Miami for the first time in six years to "give back to every motherfucker that supported us" with a completely free, all-ages show at Grand Central.

Fans wrapped around the corner early in the evening and sweated in the Miami sun for what must have felt like an eternity until the club's doors finally opened.

Featuring a DJ set by Odd Future's Left Brain and a set by Miami's own hardcore heroes Homestretch, the night had something for everyone.

From the moment we saw Trash Talk frontman Lee Spielman wandering around the club with a boomerang in his hand, we knew things were going to get out-of-hand.

While the show's optimistic start time of 5 p.m. eventually gave way to a realistic Miami-time kickoff around 8, Homestretch wasted no time, turning the place into a frenzied mosh pit.

The crowd reaction was a triumphant moment for a band that Miami's hardcore scene has known to be world class for years -- especially since the 305 band was surely introducing itself for the first time to many of the younger Trash Talk fans.

Homestretch completely annihilated with one of the most impassioned sets that we've seen from the band in years.

The crew repped Miami's oft-overlooked hardcore community in the best way, though the victory is bittersweet as the band is going on an indefinite hiatus after June.
