Viva Las Vegas (A Mix)

I know, posts have been kind of scarce and rarer than a Lifetime show these days, but I just got back from Vegas yesterday.  I’ve never been there during the off season, and it’s definitely a much more chill vibe (well… chill for Vegas). Even though I don’t drink, Vegas is incredibly dangerous for my health.  No sleep ever, gamble way too much, and all around a fun and rowdy fucking time.  Oh, and I want to go back for punk rock bowling in May.  […]

DANGERS, Vice, Kids, Sore Saints Live In Philly (1/19/14)

Dangers have quickly become one of my favorite hardcore bands ever since I started listening to them a few years back, but never had the opportunity to see live on account they’ve never played Philadelphia before.  This past weekend, I almost made some plans to go visit some friends in another city, but then I saw a flyer on facebook for Dangers.  Not only were they playing their first show in Philly ever, but it was a house show at the Golden Tea House.  Oh […]

Fantasy Panther, Ratkicker, Skin Graft (Live in Philadelphia 1/9/14)

This past Thursday I headed out to Philly’s small club The Barbary to catch a grindcore/powerviolence show.  The place had a decent amount of people in it for a random winter Thursday night, and while I unfortunately missed some of the openers (especially Boroughs, from what I’ve heard of them, they’re fucking sick), I was able to catch the final three. Skin Graft: Local Philly grind/powerviolence dudes, these guys reminded me a lot of a more midtempo and sludgy Spazz.  The band seemed to missing […]

Pig Destroyer – Prowler In The Yard (For fans of Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Wormrot, Rotten Sound)

I consider it a wasted opportunity: back in the mid 2000s (ten years ago fuuuuck) I lived down in Virginia for school, and would often head down to Richmond for some awesome punk shows.  I remember constantly seeing the name Pig Destroyer on fliers for upcoming shows, but never bothered to check them out.  If only I had a time machine so I can go back in time and slap the shit out of myself. I’ve been listening to Pig Destroyer a lot lately, particularly […]

The Slackers, RK$TDY Live In Philadelphia (12/27/13)

Ok, still finally playing catch up with the show recaps, and so I’m going to make this quick.  But this past Friday I headed to Philly’s North Star Bar to catch ska dudes The Slackers.  The bar and venue was pretty crowded for what I was assuming would be dead for a 21+ ska show, but I was pleasantly surprised when I strolled (or sauntered, if you will) in. RK$TDY: I walked in about a quarter through their set, and let me tell you, the […]
