Jesus Piece drummer Luis Aponte to perform on SNL with Charli XCX this weekend

Luis Aponte, drummer of Philadelphia hardcore/metalcore unit Jesus Piece, will find himself on one of America's most iconic TV shows this weekend as he performs with singer and songwriter Charli XCX on Saturday Night Live.

A drum cam video of Aponte posted earlier this year reportedly caught the attention of the Charli XCX camp, leading to the gig.

SNL featuring host Paul Rudd will air this Saturday, December 18.

SNL is woke trash and hasnt been funny for over 25 years.

Liberal kids who are keeping it real by fighting the vile rich and the elites are over the moon at being asked by the vile rich and the elites to perform for them. This guy will be starry eyed and tongue tied when he's confronted with these people.


anonymous 197 days ago

Chick probably isn't even straight edge.


_d0thack_ 197 days ago

He looks so f*cked up


anonymous 197 days ago

Of course Sunny Singh made a post where it's all about him.


anonymous 197 days ago

He played sloppy AF on that drum cam, of course he gets s gig on SNL.


anonymous 197 days ago

This must be the reverse version of Thomas Pridgen playing drums for Trash Talk. AKA: shitty drummer joining a big name music act.


anonymous 197 days ago

Of course Sunny Singh made a post where it's all about him. >>> Yep. Heaven forbid he prefaces his selfish posts with " Congratulations to Luis Aponte on _____." Heaven forbid he doesn't plug his sh it period & what is it really? You film live sets of hardcore bands dude & that's cool/fine I'm all for it but he's just a self-promoting douche who comes off he does it so he doesn't have to do something else which requires more work and/or time. More a dodge than a hustle or living. And I'm the first one to be all for someone doing what they love or even just like to do for a living as well as for the love/like of it - that's the dream to me (as far as making a living.) I mean if a friend of mine accomplished something I would congratulate him privately & publicly & not promote anything of mine with it cuz it's about my boy not me.

anonymous 197 days ago

Sonny is just as pretentious as joe hardcore >> Nah, only Sonny is pretentious. Joe Hardcore would have to know what the word pretentious means to be that.

Damn give Hate5Six credit for the drum cam >> I'm sure Luis told whoever that Hate5Six did it.

Sunny Singh here, check out my new drum cam video, sponsored by Pfizer and Moderna!

anonymous 7 hours ago Of course Sunny Singh made a post where it's all about him. Exactly what I thought. You just filmed bands dude. Get over yourself


anonymous 196 days ago

I canceled my patreon to hate5six cause that guy is a self important douche bag. f*ck you Sunny you whiny bitch. I'll watch your videos for free constantly!


anonymous 196 days ago

Sunny Singh. You got bullied for being brown in school just to throw away your future for a life of self importance in a scene of mostly white people who disrespect you and remind you how they really feel about you everyday. You go 0against your values to film bands and promote fests that you wouldn't if it weren't for the mix of clout and fear for your personal safety. >>> So you're saying Sunny films bands & fests so he doesn't get beat up? LOL


anonymous 196 days ago

I canceled my patreon to hate5six cause that guy is a self important douche bag. f*ck you Sunny you whiny bitch. I'll watch your videos for free constantly! >>> Since that douchebag likes to ask people to support his Patreon how 'bout he asks them to float a dollar or two or three or more to a band he films & why not? They're the content. Or no cuz that'd be less money to him to pay the rent on his brickwalled apartment in a nice part of Philadelphia? He likes to cry poormouth but he ain't poor.


anonymous 196 days ago

Sunny Singh: self-proclaimed socialist that exploits bands for their creative endeavors not showing them a single cent for their work. True capitalist.


anonymous 196 days ago

This dude actually sucks at drums. Curious if he could even play to a click on TV.


anonymous 196 days ago

Isn't he also a "model" I can't see him driving over there and having all that pressure at the rehearsal..


anonymous 196 days ago

^^^ Holocaust denier? C'mon dude. "Sunny Singh: self-proclaimed socialist that exploits bands for their creative endeavors not showing them a single cent for their work. True capitalist." Yep & he also looks like the Indian dude in Good Will Hunting who says "no way" when the math professor asked if he solved the problem on the board which Will solved.


anonymous 196 days ago

>>>> So you're saying Sunny films bands & fests so he doesn't get beat up? LOL He outspoken and taking a stand about everything but Joe hardcore who runs tihc and the sketchy crew bands he films. He has all the time in the world to respond to trolls, fly a drone over the dnc and everything else but he draws the line at not filming and therefore promoting the bands and fests of people who openly mock his beliefs and have a million accusations against them LOL. Can't piss of the fat 40 year old crew members or he might end up in a coma like tom.


anonymous 196 days ago

lol Joe hardcore is Sunny Singhs daddy.


anonymous 196 days ago

But he's got enough losers who call him king and say he keeps the scene alive on his Twitter and Facebook comments so he will continue to be a douche.


anonymous 196 days ago

Charli XCX is more talented than 90% of the trash covered on LG. Talent plus 1000/10 hot = dream girl.


anonymous 196 days ago

Not trying to be a "hater" but I played drums better than that in 6th grade.


anonymous 196 days ago

Pussys are stoked for this


anonymous 196 days ago

Sunny Singh here. You capitalist pig dogs complain about me on here while you lap up my content like mother's milk you chumps. My manifesto will be spread far and wide while you cry on your keyboards in yo mama's basements. Yeah I'm rollin' down Rodeo with a shotgun


anonymous 196 days ago

Luis is a DJ, model, rock star, hardcore guy, scene runoff socialite. And all of you are just lame ass common people. Bow down and be a fan.

Can't piss of the fat 40 year old crew members or he might end up in a coma like tom.>>> Basically you're saying if he spoke out he'd get his a ss beat. Who should he call out besides Joe HC & what should he call out? I'm seriously asking. Be specific.


anonymous 196 days ago

Sunny actually has denied the holocaust look it up and the cult around him crowdshames anyone who is not impressed >> No YOU post evidence that he denies it. You accuse him of denying the Holocaust you show proof or GTFOHWYBS If the evidence is there you'll post it, no need for anyone to "look it up."


anonymous 196 days ago

Luis is a DJ, model, rock star, hardcore guy, scene runoff socialite. And all of you are just lame ass common people. Bow down and be a fan.>> Sarcasm detected beep beep beep 😂😂😂 The funny thing about this is he may not be shown or even seen. He certainly won't be announced. I just hope it leads to him leaving & ending Jesus Piece.

"Basically you're saying if he spoke out he'd get his a ss beat. Who should he call out besides Joe HC & what should he call out? I'm seriously asking. Be specific." How about spreading COVID misinformation, spreading 9/11 conspiracy theories, having him and his friends destroy a girl's apartment back in Delaware back (early 2000s), having him throw a homeless dude down the First Unitarian Church basement steps and then double-kick his head against the cement wall (leaving him unconscious), being a gang member, having friends bring guns to shows, violently assaulting tons of people... all the woke kids love him but he's a piece of garbage and they're all hypocrites.

Also setting up a crowdfunfing campaign for a scumbag friend's bail then refusing to say what he was arrested for & saying it doesn't matter when yeah it does. Maybe I don't want to bail out a drug dealer, mugger, or whatever.


anonymous 195 days ago

having him throw a homeless dude down the First Unitarian Church basement steps and then double-kick his head against the cement wall (leaving him unconscious),>>> Did you and/or whoever you know witness & report this? If not why didn't you? Did the girl who's place was trashed file a police report & if not why not? I mean you say Sunny supports the people who did this sh it but whatcwas done about it to make them accountable? Nothing. Or is it that "no snitching" BS which it is cuz have YOU assaulted a homeless person or trashed someone's house? No & no I'd think.

"Did you and/or whoever you know witness & report this? If not why didn't you? Did the girl who's place was trashed file a police report & if not why not?" Nope but we were teenagers and scared. You want to be able to go to shows and see your friends without being worried about being put in a hospital.


anonymous 194 days ago

^^^ You could've called the cops anonymously & nothing would've happened to you.


anonymous 192 days ago

"Did you and/or whoever you know witness & report this? If not why didn't you? Did the girl who's place was trashed file a police report & if not why not?" Yeah I'd like to report a messy room!
