Saves The Day Live In Philadelphia (9/27/13)

It’s impossible to grow up in New Jersey in the late 90s, be into melodic hardcore, and not listen to Saves The Day.  Sure, I don’t know anything by them after Can’t Slow Down and Through Being Cool, but I am still always stoked to see them just to be able to rock out to those few old songs.  So when I saw they were playing Philly’s Union Transfer on Friday night, I was one hundred percent in. I was still hurting from the secret […]

The Bouncing Souls Live In Asbury Park (9/26/13)

Last night, The Bouncing Souls announced that they would be playing a secret last minute show at Asbury Lanes (the punk rock bowling alley) in Asbury Park NJ, as sort of a rehearsal for their set at Tsunami Fest with new drummer George Rebelo of Hot Water Music. There weren’t any advanced tickets, and they were the only ones on the bill.  Easily one of my favorite bands since I was just a wee NJ punk, there was no way that I was not going […]

Posi The Fuck Up Mix

So things have been a little bit crazy over here, and I haven’t really had much time to write new posts lately.  Hopefully that settles down in a bit, but I’ve been finding myself having to listen to my “Posi Up” mix a lot more, which I had to create a while back to keep my sanity.  Maybe with summer fading into it’s dying days, you need some posi tunes too.  Maybe you too have some other shit going on… but thank god for punk […]

Galactic Cannibal – We’re Fucked (For fans of Dillinger Four, Direct Hit, Fucked Up)

As part of the older segment on the punk spectrum pushing 30, I sometimes get a little bit down that eventually, all of my favorite bands will inevitably break up… and I get a little bit jaded that I’ve already heard it all.  Then something comes along and blows me away on the first listen and refills my punk rock energy level like I was a god damn moshing Mega Man.  Galactic Cannibal’s We’re Fucked does exactly that. Milwaukee’s Galactic Cannibal are a side project […]
