NOFX and Direct Hit Live In Philly (4/27/16)

On tour supporting the release of their official autobiography book The Hepatitis Bathtub, I got a chance to see NOFX again play a sold out TLA here in Philadelphia.  Unfortunately I got there a bit late and bummed that I completely missed that ska band I can never remember how to fucking spell their name (Mephiskapheles), but got there in time for Direct Hit.

Direct Hit:

In my opinion, Direct Hit is one of the best bands in pop-punk today and one of my favorites.  I listen to their EPs and albums so regular that Metamucil would be jealous, and was excited to get a chance to see them live again.  They recently just signed to Fat Wreck, and have a new album coming out June 24th.

From the second the band started, it was pretty obvious that there were only a handful of us who knew who they were and their songs, but those of us who did were singing along loudly.  Even those who didn’t seemed to be really digging them.

I was pleasantly surprised by their setlist, playing a bunch off of both Domesplitter and Brainless God, with a few of the upcoming new songs sprinkled in.  The newer songs definitely sounded a bit poppier than we’re used to from Direct Hit, with more melodies and harmonies, but were still incredibly solid live. Definitely a fantastic show, albeit a bit strange seeing Direct Hit play on such a large stage with barricades (I’ve only seen them in small bars and church basements previously), these guys always put on a great show and is a must if you dig pop-punk.

Setlist: (not in order, from what I remember)
The World Is Ending (No One Cares)

NOFX:

Nofx

NOFX has been a band for well near 33 years now… let that sink in for a second.  Like most punk fans, NOFX was one of the earliest bands I ever got into, and one of the few that still put out good music and play a solid live show.

The band took the stage, joking about how this was one of the last few nights that Fat Mike is able to party as he needs to go to rehab soon, and they mentioned that the show was being live streamed on Yahoo because apparently that’s a thing and Yahoo still exists?  They also introduced one of the members of Dancehall Crashers, with her doing keyboards and female vocals on the songs as well.

The second the band started playing their opener of 60%, the place erupted in a large chaotic circle pit that continued throughout the entirety of their set.  All songs seemed to get a big reaction, whether it was the newer Tony Sly tribute “I’m Sorry Tony” or the obvious fan favorite of “Linoleum”.

As always with NOFX, it was comedy hour up on stage wit the band taking some jabs at everyone including people under 21 (“Anyone here under 21? You all make me very uncomfortable” before launching into “Fuck The Kids”).  One particular memorable moment was after playing “Louise”, Fat Mike tells the crowd how he realizes out of all the bigger punk bands, no one would play a song like that… “Take a moment and try to imagine Al Barr of Dropkick Murphy’s or Tim Armstrong of Rancid singing the opening lines of that song”.  You got a point Fat Mike.

While the band may pride themselves on not caring and just having fun on stage, they still are easily one of the tightest and fun live bands around.  And at this point, you don’t need me to tell you to go see NOFX, you know who they are, and you either love them or you don’t (and if you don’t, you’re fucking up).

Fenix TX and Suck Brick Kid Live In Philly (3/31/16)

fenixtx

Last week, I headed to Philly’s Underground Arts to catch one of the first bands I ever saw way back in the day, Fenix TX as they supported Unwritten Law on their tour.  I was surprised by how much of a turnout there were for these bands, especially considering the last time Fenix TX released any music was 15 years ago.

I missed the local opener but got there in time for Orlando’s Suck Brick Kid.

Suck Brick Kid:

Orlando’s Suck Brick Kid took the stage, and I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect.  I’ll be honest, I’m a bit picky when it comes to pop-punk, and don’t find myself listening to the genre very often, especially newer bands (unless your pop-punk sounds more like The Queers than Newfound Glory.)

The second they started playing, I was pleasantly surprised.  The band clearly pulled from a bunch of different influences, and they reminded me a bit of A Wilhelm Scream or Hot Water Music if they were a pop-punk band.

The band bantered plenty with the crowd, talking about how they’ve been asking everyone at each show what their city is the best at (Baltimore is the best at heroin and riots apparently).  Philly answered “cheesesteaks”, but I would have gone with booing people.  Each their own.

If you’re into A Wilhelm Scream at all, give these guys a listen.  Bonus for throwing in a Blink-182 cover.

Fenix TX:

Story time!  My first show ever when I was just a kid still getting into punk was Fenix TX.  Strangely enough, they were opening for that Christian rap-rock band P.O.D at the Electric Factory over 15 years ago and I went to see Fenix TX, and am pretty sure I was one of the only people who was there for them at that show.

I played the shit out of their Self Titled growing up, and while I never really became familiar with their much bigger Lechuza (as my friend told me when I told him I didn’t know any of these “new” songs “dude these came out almost 15 years ago”), and I wasn’t sure how much off their first album they would play.

After ripping through a bunch off Lechuza including Phoebe Cates, Something Bad Is Gonna Happen, and Katie W, Fenix TX launched into some of their older stuff including Minimum Wage and Ben.  The crowd, while not really dancing, was enthusiastically singing along throughout the set.  Announcing that they were actually writing new music,  they played a few new songs which were definitely a bit heavier.

A fun show, it was good to see one of the seminal bands that were one of my gateway bands into punk again, and definitely nostalgic seeing them after all these years and hearing songs like Flight 601 again live.  While I don’t really listen to much pop-punk these days, their Self Titled will always still be one of my favorite albums.

Setlist (from what I remember, not in order):
Phoebe Cates
Something Bad Is Gonna Happen

The Copyrights, Not Scientists Live In Philly (10/25/15)

Halloween is finally over, it’s getting dark much earlier, and I finally am getting a chance to catch up on posts a bit.  Last week, I headed out to South Philly’s bar Boot & Saddle to catch one of my favorite pop-punk bands around The Copyrights open up for Masked Intruder.  I wasn’t expecting a big crowd due to the fact it’s a Sunday 21+ show, but the small room was decently filled up.  I’ll admit, I did split before Masked Intruder took the stage, but I was able to catch the opener Not Scientists.

Not Scientists:
Not-Scientists-band-2015

I never heard Frances Not Scientists before, but I was thoroughly impressed by their set.  Featuring members of bands such as Uncommonmenfrommars and No Guts No Glory, they’re relatively new, only existing for just shy of two years now.  The band seemed in pretty high spirits as they ripped through their pop-punk set, with a few stand out songs being “Leave Stickers On Our Graves” and “I Wanna Be A Spaceship”.

Even though the band mostly played pop-punk, there were definitely some hints of more experimental and indie through a few songs, which is more pronounced through their recorded work than their live show.

The Copyrights:
Copyrights

Carbondale Illinois The Copyrights have been at it for a long time now (13 years), and have a solid 6 full lengths under their belts… needless to say they’ve pretty much perfected their pop-punk sound.  Even though I’ve seen them a bunch, I haven’t had a chance to catch them since their last release of their latest LP Report.

It was clear that the majority of people in the crowd were there for Masked Intruder and didn’t know much by The Copyrights, there were still plenty of us singing along.  Keeping stage banter to a minimum, the Illinois punks fit in plenty of songs in from mostly Report and North Sentinel Island, but fit in a few from older releases too.

Always a solid set, The Copyrights are one of the best bands in pop-punk around and if they’re in you’re area, go do yourself a favor and catch them.

Saves The Day, Say Anything Live In Philadelphia (11/26/14)

saves the day say anything

Earlier this year, my friend told me that there were rumors that Saves The Day would be touring playing their seminal album Through Being Cool in it’s entirety.  Growing up in New Jersey around the time this was released, I have played the shit out of TBC for 15 years now and it still is one of my favorite albums of all time.  So when the dates of the show were finally announced, I made sure to buy a ticket immediately.  They were playing two dates at Philly’s TLA, but on account I was seeing Cock Sparrer on Friday, I opted to only go to the Wed show.  A group of us met up at the show, and we got in a bit late missing Reggie And The Full Effect, but got there right as Saves The Day was setting up.

Saves The Day

Saves_the_Day_-_Through_Being_Cool_cover
I was a little bit shocked that they weren’t headlining the show, but it didn’t matter much. After taking the stage, burning incense, and opening with a long wall of sound/trippy intro, the band finally broke out into opener All-Star Me, which immediately had most in the crowd singing along and a pit opening up (in which I was losing my shit in for a strong majority of the set).  They played a tight set and it was beyond awesome to finally see them play the songs I love that never get played live (Through Being Cool, Banned From The Back Porch).

When they finally ended Banned From The Back Porch, the band announced that they had a few extra songs, and played a mix from some of their later albums, kicking it off with their hit At Your Funeral which got the biggest reaction.  They played a bunch of newer songs I didn’t know, but they did play Jessie & My Whetstone and A Drag In D Flat (and Through Being Cool in it’s god damn entirety), so I can’t really complain.

Setlist:
All Star Me

Say Anything

220px-Say_Anything_Is_a_Real_Boy
A decent amount of people left after Saves The Day (and they were the reason I was there as well), but my girlfriend, friends, and I stuck around for Say Anything who actually put on a pretty tight show.  Max Bemis and company took the stage to a roar of applause as they busted straight into Is A Real Boy opener Belt.  Even though the sold out TLA show was only at about 75% capacity (this is what happens when you’re this close to Jersey and Saves The Day doesn’t headline apparently), that didn’t stop the band from completely tearing through the entirety of Is A Real Boy as everyone sung along and danced throughout the set.

After finishing up the album (minus the final track) the band said they were going to play a few off of the reissue bonus disc of Was A Real Boy before coming out for a final encore of Admit It!  A solid show, even though I was never the biggest Say Anything fan, I definitely had a good time.

Hold Tight! – I Always Leave But Never Say Goodbye (for fans of Lifetime, Jawbreaker, Saves The Day)

holdtightalwaysleave

Winter is right around the corner here up in the Northeast.  Winter chills, it’s getting dark outside before 5pm, and everything just feels so much more moody.  Richmond Virginia’s Hold Tight captures the mood perfectly on their latest I Always Leave But Never Say Goodbye.

If you’re not familiar with Hold Tight, they play incredibly catchy pop-punk with plenty of melodic hardcore influences (as seen on earlier releases such as Call The Zoo or their alter-ego hardcore split they did with Direct Hit) that would please any early Lifetime and early Saves The Day fan.  After 2 years without really releasing any new music since their last full length Blizzard of 96, Hold Tight definitely expanded their sound a bit on I Always Leave But Never Say Goodbye.

With 6 songs clocking in around 13 minutes (compared to the 7 songs in 5 minutes of Call The Zoo), Hold Tight stays in the mid-tempo territory on this EP.  Yet they still wear their melodic hardcore influences on their sleeves, blending it perfectly with pop-punk sensibilities on songs such as “Waterlogged” and “Reacting”.

The songs have an melancholy feeling about them, and that’s definitely reflected lyrically.  On title and closing track “I Always Leave And Never Say Goodbye” they declare “and I know you hate who I used to be, at least you got something in common with me” while on “Reacting” the band even downplays the old optimism of their debut Can’t Take This Away shouting “We used to say can’t take this away, but I can still lose it.”

One of my favorite releases of the year and one of the best from Hold Tight, definitely pick this up if you’re a fan of melodic hardcore or pop-punk at all.

Direct Hit! Priceduifkes Live In Philadelphia (6/21/14)

This has been the week of goddamn shows (FUCK YOU, GET PUMPED) and I’m falling a bit behind in posts due to all of my running around (add trying to find a new apartment to the list and yeah…)

Anyways, last Saturday I headed to Philly’s bar and venue The Fire to catch one of my favorite pop-punk bands around these days Direct Hit.  I missed a few of the openers due to being out watching the US vs Portugal depressing draw (which, by the way… if you saw some asshole decked out in soccer face temporary tattoos and 94 world cup shirts, that was yours truly), but made it in time for Belgium’s Pricedufkes.

The Priceduifkes:
priceduifkes

I’ve never heard of these Belgium punks before, but I was impressed with their energetic, fun set.  Playing catchy 3 chord punk that any fan of Screeching Weasel or The Queers could get behind, the band seemed pretty pumped to be touring the states, and their positive attitude was infectious. Definitely worth checking out, they even had an old Blink-182 vibe about them with some songs.

Direct Hit!:

These Milwaukee/Chicago punks have made waves with their concept album Brainless God and their explosive live shows, and the past show was no exception.  The band took the stage, and while it seemed like most of the people weren’t too familiar with them and were there for Masked Intruder, a decent number of us were singing along every word and even a small pit broke out.

The band themselves fed off the energy, jumping into the crowd and putting on a quick but fun set. I unfortunately had to bounce before Masked Intruder, and while I’m not too familiar with their music, every time I’ve seen them they put on a good set.

Big Eyes, Tony Molina, Radiator Hospitals Live Under A Bridge in Philly (5/6/14)

Sometimes I think that I should move from Philly, as I’ve been living here for a total of 7 years now and occasionally feel I should check out another city.  Then something incredibly awesome happens like the show last night, and it reminds me why I love this city so fucking much.  So I totally missed Against Me at the Trocadero last night, but I saw that a last minute show was happening at midnight somewhere under a bridge in South Philly, and found this out approximately 5 minutes before the show was due to start.  That sounds awesome, there is no way I was missing this.

I never really heard any of the bands playing tonight except I knew that it was sort of a secret aftershow as both Big Eyes and Tony Molina played the Against Me show at The Trocadero.  After wandering around South Philadelphia AIMLESSLY late at night looking under bridges (and believe me, you see some sketchy shit) I finally saw a group of punk looking kids on skateboard who I assumed were going to the show, talked to them and followed them.

Big Eyes:

bigeyes

I got to the show approximately halfway through Big Eyes set, and there were plenty of kids out for the afterparty skateboarding, watching the bands, and generally just hanging out.  From the little bit of the set I caught, Brooklyn now Seattle based Big Eyes played catchy female fronted power-popish-punk, and put on an enjoyable set.

Tony Molina:
tonymolina
Tony Molina was up next, who based out of San Francisco had a backing band behind him, put on what was probably my favorite set of the night.  My friend described them as Weezer with guitar solos, and he completely nailed it.  If you dig Weezer at all, definitely check this out.  His latest LP “Dissed and Dismissed” finishes just under 12 minutes, so works perfect for us ADD fucks.

Radiator Hospital:

RadiatorHospital
One of Philly’s latest poppy punk bands, their live set was much heavier than their recorded stuff, and was filled with antics.  With friends (I’m assuming they’re friends… maybe they’re just assholes) were throwing cans at the drummer, putting boxes over his head and it didn’t faze him one bit.  Meanwhile the singer was rocking out all while exclaiming “I am way too drunk for this!”  Definitely a fun set.

All of the bands were on the poppier side of things than I usually listen to but it was one hell of a show regardless.  Midnight show under a bridge somewhere? Yeah, that’s Philadelphia in a nutshell for you.

The Movielife – It’s Go Time (For fans of Midtown, Saves The Day, Lifetime)

movielife

Growing up in a NJ high school 15 years ago as a cynical punk kid who despised most things considered emo, I sort of never even gave The Movielife a chance.  I just knew that people who liked Taking Back Sunday and The Starting Line were fans of The Movielife, so my ignorant teen self wrote them off as other “whiny emo shit” and if I was going to listen to anything remotely close, it would be Lifetime’s Hello Bastards or Saves The Day’s Through Being Cool .

It wasn’t until about a year ago, I was going snowboarding with a friend when I heard some solid pop-punk/melodic hardcore blasting through her car stereo speakers that I said “this is really tight, who is this?”  “Oh, this is The Movielife.”  Noooooooo shit.

I went out and grabbed their debut full length It’s Go Time and immediately became a fan.  Playing pop-punk that reminded me a bit of Midtown, the 9 song It’s Go Time has plenty of faster punk influences as heard on opener “Barefoot”.  Catchy and melodic, the album does slow down a bit with tracks like “Maybe It’s Nothing”, but still has enough of an edge to keep me interested.  If you dig the poppier side of pop-punk with bands like Brand New or Midtown, definitely give these guys a listen.

Alkaline Trio, New Found Glory, H2O Live In Philadelphia (11/13/13)

This past Wed, I headed to Philly’s Electric Factory to catch H2O, New Found Glory, and Alkaline Trio.  Usually this isn’t a show I would go to, but I definitely wanted to see H2O and catching Alkaline Trio since it’s been over a decade since I’ve last seen them, and I like the first album by New Found Glory.

H2O:
h2o

H2O GO!  I was easily most excited to see these New York punk/hardcore legends.  Easily the black sheep of the tour, I didn’t expect much of a turnout or a reaction for H2O.  Holy shit was I wrong.  The second the band took the stage, hardcore kids came out in droves and a pit opened up filled with us two stepping and shouting along each word. I’ve never seen H2O before, but as someone who goes to hardcore shows all the time, I will say it was very bizarre seeing them behind a barrier.  I felt like mic grabs and stage dives are a necessary for them.

Regardless, it was still a blast, and while I may be biased with my hardcore leanings, easily my favorite set of the night.

Highlights:
One Life One Chance
Guilty By Association
Nothing To Prove
5 Year Plan
Family Tree

New Found Glory:
new_found_glory

I’d be lying if I said I never listened to New Found Glory.  I used to be a huge fan of their “From Your Screen To Your Stereo” EP and their Self Titled album way back in the day, and still find myself listening to it every now and then (especially the song Vegas… I fucking love that song).  That being said, last time I saw the band I was sort of disappointed, not so much because of their performance itself but just the amount “tough guy bros” who use pits as an excuse to try to start some bullshit fights.  Stay the fuck out of punk.  *Ahem*

Anyways, New Found Glory took the stage and immediately blasted into “All Downhill From Here” which had many singing along and pogoing (while a hardcore pit opened up… which never made sense to me but ok).  I would love to say that I got to watch the majority of their set, but honestly, I wound up catching a stray fist in the pit that just sort of made perfect contact with my nose and I started bleeding fucking everywhere. Great, I go in hardcore pits all the time and do just fine during American Nightmare, Bane, etc… and the one time I’m not even fucking dancing, I get hurt during New Found Glory.  I couldn’t help but crack up at the ridiculousness of it all.

However, this happened during “Hit Or Miss”, and on account that was one of the few songs I actually like by NFG, I made sure to stay and bleed on everyone a bit more and dance… sorry guys. Priorities.

Unfortunately the band did not play Vegas, but did throw in “Sucker” and “Dressed To Kill” so I guess I’ll take what I can get.

All Downhill From Here

Alkaline Trio:

alkalinetrio_story1

I remember seeing Alkaline Trio over a decade ago in NJ at Skate and Surf fest, and at the time I was not a big fan of them at all (17 year old me was way to “punx” to listen to them)  Over the years, I grew to appreciate them (mostly Goddamnit, with a few off of Maybe I’ll Catch Fire, and some off their Self Titled), and I only wanted to hear two songs: Cringe and Radio.

The crowd thinned out a bit, with many only there for NFG… their loss.  The second Alkaline Trio took the stage, they blasted straight into Cringe, and I completely lost my shit along with the other oldheads in the crowd.   The band didn’t really let up, and I think put on a much better live performance than their recorded stuff.

The band kept stage banter to a complete minimum, really only taking the time to thank H2O and NFG, and played a solid set. I recently read in an interview that they may go on tour for the 20 year anniversary for Goddamnit, so I’d be stoked to see that (still have some years), and I’d definitely go catch them again if they came around again.

Direct Hit! – Brainless God (For fans of The Copyrights, The Dopamines, Hold Tight)

direct hit brainless god

I’ll be honest, my exposure to Wisconsin/Illinois pop punks Direct Hit! before their latest Brainless God was pretty much a hardcore split they did with Hold Tight and their side project (with I’ve been fucking obsessed with lately) Galactic Cannibal. However, let’s cut to the chase: I’m completely blown away by their latest album and have been spinning it seriously non-stop.

Direct Hit manages to blend elements of pop-punk, hardcore, and just all around party music to create a cohesive and catchy 12 songs.  Brainless God is a concept album, telling the tale of a world facing certain nuclear destruction and staring death square in the face through the eyes of different characters, and defiantly giving it the finger. Each song tells it’s own story, but is flows so well to paint a bigger picture.

However the beauty of Brainless God is the fact that there is a much deeper meaning and more practical one within the black humor, and that is overcoming any adversaries that life may throw at you, as shown in the closer “A Message For The Angels Pt II”.  Talking about invading heaven, with lyrics Your brainless god should take some time, climb off his throne/and give us all an explanation of his own/We want our whiskey bottles back now/our guitars and amplifiers,
because this night ain’t over until we say it’s done.

Persevere motherfuckers.

Easily one of my favorites this year, it’s definitely a must for any pop-punk fan.
