Bouncing Souls, Andrew Jackson Jihad Live In New Jersey (7/17/15)

I don’t head out to NJ’s Starland Ballroom very often anymore, it’s a bit of a ride and a bigger venue.  But I’ll make an exception for those fucking New Jersey mooches The Bouncing Souls.  When I first bought tickets to the show when it was announced, I was thrilled as a NJ born and bred punk kid, they’ve been my favorite band for many years now.

But when The Bouncing Souls announced that they were playing How I Spent My Summer Vacation in it’s entirety, I was pretty pumped: last time I tried to see this album in it’s entirety (exactly 4 years and 2 days of the show) I shattered my arm and had to leave early, eventually needing about 20 screws and 2 steel plates.   I wasn’t planning on crowd surfing this time, and kept it in the pit.

My girlfriend and I got to the venue and while it wasn’t sold out, it was decently packed.  I got there right as folk punks Andrew Jackson Jihad were setting up.

Andrew Jackson Jihad:

Andrew Jackson Jihad

I caught Andrew Jackson Jihad once before, and they put on a killer show so I was excited to catch them again.  The band was on stage when the Starland Ballroom screen lifted, to which they made of fun a bit and instantly kicked into their folk punk tunes to a very receptive crowd.  With many shouting along, they played a killer set with plenty of energy (with the singer doing somersaults to lighten up the rather somber yet epic closer “Big Bird”).

Andrew Jackson Jihad are easily one of the best live folk punk bands around, and if they come around your area, go check them out.

Highlights:
Linda Ronstant
Big Bird
Gift Of The Magi 2: Return Of The Magi

The Bouncing Souls:

BouncingSouls5

After a few good chants of OLE and Here We Go as is custom before their set, The Bouncing Souls took the stage and immediately broke into “That Song” which had us in the crowd singing and moving throughout their set playing How I Spent My Summer Vacation.  The set was a bit of a whirlwind, and every song had people dancing.  Greg seemed more energetic on stage with the mic, even diving into the crowd at one point.

After the Souls finished up How I Spent My Summer Vacation closer “Gone”, they left the stage for a bit to chants of Here We Go.  When they announced the show, they said they were going to showcase some new songs as well, but they definitely surprised me by playing a bunch of other songs off older albums as well.  They took the stage again and started their encore with the Ramones cover (who were covering Bobby Freeman) “Do You Wanna Dance?”

The new songs that the band played were actually pretty tight, and sounded much more like the traditional Bouncing Souls that I know and love.  Minus a few songs, I wasn’t the biggest fan of Comet or the slower songs from Ghosts On The Boardwalk but loved the song they did on their latest Shocking Split with The Menzingers so I’m excited to see what they’ll put out next.  Oh, and they played my favorite song ever “The Freaks, The Nerds, And The Romantics”?  Yeah, I’m happy.  Bonus I didn’t break my arm this time around

Shitty Friends – Crime Line 7″ (For fans of Black Flag, Circle Jerks, Western Addiction)

shitty friends crime line

A punk 7-inch should leave a listener wanting more, and that’s exactly what Lancaster PA’s Shitty Friends Crime Line does.  With four songs finishing just around 5 minutes, you know exactly what you’re getting yourself into with the title opener: no frills or bullshit, just late 70s early 80s style hardcore punk.

Very reminiscent of early Circle Jerks and Western Addiction, with “Last Call” even reminding me a bit of later Exploited when they went more hardcore.  You’re not going to find anything ground breaking or new with Shitty Friends, and that’s exactly what I love about this 7-inch.  It’s refreshingly simple face smashing punk rock, and you should definitely pick this one up over at their bandcamp.

Voodoo Glow Skulls and Hub City Stompers Live In Philadelphia (6/25/15)

This past Thursday, I headed to Philadelphia’s Center City bar and upstair music venue Milkboy to see The Voodoo Glow Skulls and Hub City Stompers despite battling a cold that left me exhausted.  I’ve never been to this spot before, as they tend to usually host more indie bands and singer/songwriter tyoes types as opposed to punk and ska bands, which is a shame because it was a pretty rad venue.

Last time I caught Voodoo Glow Skulls headline a show nearly 6 years ago, the place was practically empty with only about 40 of us there.  This time the venue was freaking packed, without much room to walk around (did ska grow in the last 6 years or something?)  My girlfriend and I got there right as Hub City Stompers were setting up.

Hub City Stompers:

hubcity

Growing up in NJ and frequenting ska shows around the tri-state area, I don’t think there’s a ska band I’ve seen more than Hub City Stompers. Playing traditional ska mixed with punk, oi and hardcore, HCS creates a sound very uniquely them.  The small stage at Milkboy looked like it could barely fit all of them as they blasted through their set.

Playing a set primarily consisting of songs off their latest Life After Death, the band played a tight and fun set with plenty of us singing along to songs like Pants Music, Ska Ska Black Sheep, Leave Me The Fuck Alone, Sharky 17 (a cover of Rev. Sin’s other band Inspecter 7) And Bumbl-B.  Always a good time, I still always try and make sure I catch these guys when they come around since I’ve first seen them back in 2004.

Voodoo Glow Skulls:

voodoo glow skulls

It’s rare that California ska punk veterans Voodoo Glow Skulls make it around to Philly or the east coast in general.  Still active after 27 years, The Voodoo Glow Skulls still put on an incredibly fun live show.  Taking the stage donning their trademark mexican wrestler mask, the band immediately broke out into their self-depreciating call to arms “Voodoo Anthem” which I couldn’t control myself very long and opened a pit that plenty of people were all the eager to join and continue throughout the night.

The band ripped through all of their classics with songs like The Band Geek Mafia and Charlie Brown getting the biggest responses of the night.  They kept the songs on the heavier faster side as opposed to the slower ska numbers, but had plenty of people skanking when they did.  Bringing out the totem pole and having their voodoo guy come out for the last song, it was a fun night over at Milkboy on a rainy Thursday.  I wish they came out to the east coast more often, but with ska shows being so rare in general these days, I’ll take what I can get.  If you get a chance catch Voodoo Glow Skulls live, do yourself a favor and do so.

Good Riddance – Peace In Our Time (Rise Against, Bad Religion, 7 Seconds)

good-riddance-peace-in-our-time

Life’s busy man.  It’s been months since I’ve had a chance to post a proper* review of an album, and I’ve been sitting on Peace In Our Time for a little bit now.  Released at the end of April, Good Riddance is back with their 8th full length, and their first one in nine years.

Santa Cruz’s Good Riddance has been at it for a while now.  After calling it a day back in 2007, only to reunite five years later, these guys continue to produce incredibly energetic fast paced melodic hardcore.

From the very beginning of opener “Disputatio” with it’s heavy chugging bass and instant guitar assault, it’s clear that even though it’s been nine years, Good Riddance haven’t missed a beat.  Russ is still on point with his aggressive yet cleanly delivered vocals tackling both socio-political and personal issues.

Songs like “Dry Season” and “Year Zero” are up there with Good Riddance’s heaviest songs, while “Running On Fumes” and “Washed Away” lean more towards the melodic sides of things with the chorus even bordering straight pop-punk.

Definitely will please any Good Riddance fan, while so many bands change their style and “grow”, Good Riddance has proven once again you can grow a bit without changing up the music much.

Melt Banana Live In Philadelphia (5/22/15)

melt banana

Melt Banana is one of my favorite bands around, and this experimental Japanese noise-punk band puts on one of the craziest live shows out there.  I missed them last time they came around supporting their latest full length Fetch due to them opening for a bigger band that sold out ridiculously quick, but I made sure to grab tickets immediately so I wouldn’t miss them again.

I headed out to the sold out upstairs small stage of Johnny Brenda’s right as Melt Banana was setting up.  I wasn’t sure A lot has changed since the last time I saw Melt Banana four years ago, the biggest being that they’ve slimmed down from a 4 piece to a duo, leaving only vocalist Yasuko Onuki and guitarist Agata playing along with backing tracks.  In addition, I wasn’t sure if the crowd would be moving at all or if I’d be the asshole everyone hated: small space, 21+ show and people clutching their drinks.

All of my fears were unfounded though as the second Melt Banana started playing, not only was it clear that they still completely kill it live, plenty of people in the crowd had the same idea as me and a rowdy pit broke out for the entirety of their set.

The band played a bunch off of Fetch, and tore through a few from Bambi’s Dilemma and Cell Scrape as well.  This tour was supporting their compilation Return of 13 Hedgehogs, so they also did a few off of that.    Agata was on point creating a wall of sound with his guitar as usual, while Onuki belted out her lightning fast vocals while hopping around the stage.

By the end of the show I was covered in beer and sweat, and sort of like their music, the whole thing was a bit of a blur.  Still one of the best live bands out there today, Melt Banana always provides an insane experience.

D.R.I, Ghoul, Phobia Live In Philadelphia (5/21/15)

This past Thursday I headed to Philly’s intimate Voltage Lounge to catch a stacked lineup with Phobia, Ghoul, and DRI all playing, who were on their way to Maryland Death Fest.  Due to traffic I got to the venue a bit late and missed the two openers, but got there right as Phobia was playing their opening chords.  I battled through the sea of denim vests and long hair to the front for Phobia.

Phobia:

Phobia

I’ve been a fan of Phobia ever since I saw them open for Municipal Waste back in 2009, and have been a fan ever since.  These Orange Country dudes play grindcore leaning more towards the crust punk side of things, and Phobia ripped through a quick set playing a bunch off their latest Grindcore with a decent amount of Cruel (my favorite) and Means Of Existence thrown in as well.

The band played an incredibly tight set, and while most in the crowd didn’t really know or appreciate them much, a small yet dedicated group of us partied along.

I don’t remember much of what was played, but some highlights for me were: Facist Face Smash, So Full Of Hate, Let’s Get Pissed, and Rape, Theft And Murder.

Ghoul:

Ghoul

Holy shit, nothing could have prepared me for thrash metal band Ghoul’s set.  While my metalhead friend has been telling me to check them out for years now, this was the first time I was actually going to see them, and what a ridiculous and face melting set.

For those who don’t know, Ghoul, who keeps their real identities hidden play thrash metal with over the top theatrics including costumes, props, and plenty of fake blood.  Pretty much imagine Gwar if Gwar’s music sounded better…

Donning full executioner garb, it didn’t didn’t take the band long before drenching the crowd in fake blood through the use of skulls and infant dolls they disemboweled onstage and sprayed it’s blood on the crowd.  The pit was constant and rowdy, and the band had a cheesy yet incredibly entertaining costumed storyline that involved cops, mecha-warriors, giant robots, etc.  They kept things incredibly light hearted and fun, and never broke character.

I didn’t really even dance around much due to a sprained ankle, and by the end of Ghoul’s set, I was covered in fake blood and beer.  Easily stole the show, one of the most entertaining live bands I’ve ever seen.

DRI:

DRI

I’ve been listening to DRI since I used to skate to Dealing With It in high school, yet somehow I never got a chance to see them.  While a decent amount of people left after Ghoul, there were still plenty left for the long-running crossover thrash kings.  Often credited with starting the crossover thrash genre which mixed punk and thrash that bands such as Municipal Waste followed in the 80s (in fact, the genre is named after their album Crossover), it was rad to see them play in a smaller venue considering they were heading to MDF and NJ’s huge Starland Ballroom the next few days.

DRI took the stage, and immediately broke out into “Who Am I” which had the crowd sitting and dancing along.  These guys must love what they do, because they told the crowd that their setlist was around 40 songs long, and they weren’t kidding.  They played a few hour set, which is definitely a long time as far as punk bands go, but they slayed.

DRI played a bunch off most of their releases, even throwing in some new songs as well which is supposed to be coming out on EP later this year (the first time DRI has made new music in over 20 years).  The new songs they played were awesome, much more similar to their first album and more rooted in punk/hardcore than metal, so I’m definitely looking forward to hearing that.

It’s hard to remember what was played with a set that long, but some songs that come to mind:

Alkaline Trio Plays Goddamnit Live In Philly (5/7/15)

Alkaline-Trio-Past-Live-Tour-Poster-e1418406288744

This past Thursday, I headed to Philadelphia’s TLA to catch the first night of four where Alkaline Trio was playing all of their studio albums live.  What they’ve been doing were playing two albums a night, playing their first then most recent, then 2nd and 2nd most recent and so on.

Since I really only love their earlier punk Goddamnit and their Self Titled compilation (which kills me they didn’t play live), I opted to only go this night, but was stoked to see them play their first studio album live.

We got there a bit late after the first opener, and right as Alkaline Trio started playing their latest album My Shame Is True.  While not sold out, the place was pretty packed.  I’ll be completely honest, my knowledge of Alkaline Trio is pretty limited,  I I don’t really know their latest album, but plenty of people in the crowd were singing along, and the songs actually were pretty enjoyable even for a jaded punk like me.  Songs like “She Lied To The FBI” and “I Wanna Be A Warhol” particularly stood out.

Finally, after wrapping up their My Shame Is True Segment, Alkaline Trio said they were going to play an old one, and they used to play songs off this album with bands like Ink & Dagger (hell yeah) at Philly’s old Stalag 13.  The second the opening chords of “Cringe” started, it was obvious that this was the reason most people were here.  The place instantly erupted, and a giant pit broke out that continued throughout the night.

After ripping through the entirety of Goddamnit with only a few brief pauses between, it was over before you I knew it and the band was leaving the stage only to come back and play my one of my personal favorite songs by them “My Friend Peter”.  Definitely a solid show, I’m glad I got to see them do Goddamnit in it’s entirety.  Now please do a Self Titled tour?

Setlist:
She Lied To The FBI
I Wanna Be A Warhol

The Dead Milkmen Play An Acoustic Library Show In Philadelphia (5/3/15)

Dead_Milkmen

I’ve been to a lot of shows in my life, and I’ve seen the Dead Milkmen a handful of times, from playing a free park show to playing a memorial tribute.  Sunday’s show was by far one of the strangest shows I’ve ever been to in general.

It was announced that The Dead Milkmen would be playing a free show in Philadelphia’s Logan’s Circle sponsored by the Free Library of Philadelphia as part of a book signing and reading they were having of an author.  I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I’ve seen them play some strange places before so I felt pretty confident it would be like any other Dead Milkmen show.  Way wrong.

I got to Logan’s Circle and there was clearly no show happening there, so I headed to the library across the street.  I asked the librarian about the show, and they informed me that the show was moved indoors to the 4th floor, and to just take the elevator up there.  Ok…

I got to the 4th floor a few songs late, and peered in the conference room to see a crowd of people sitting in seats with a few people standing up against the wall while The Dead Milkmen played an acoustic set.  There weren’t any microphones minus the podium that speakers used that Rodney would occasionally shout into while he sang pacing the front of the conference room.

The crowd was made up of an interesting mix of punks who looked just as confused as I was, and people there strictly for the library event, including multiple elderly couples who looked just as confused as us punk fans as the Dead Milkmen played their offbeat satirical tunes, while many babies and toddlers clapped along.

The Dead Milkmen opted to have create their setlist on the spot by pulling song titles out of an envelope, sometimes going into a brief explanation of the song itself (“Some history about this song.  It’s possible to bronze bodies like you would with baby boots, but sometimes the body would collapse in the process.  This song was written because I made the mistake of telling Joe about this.”)

Whether pacing around, singing in the bathroom so the people who took a bathroom break could hear, or busting out the melodica, The Dead Milkmen played a light hearted and fun set to the intimate and varied crowd.

At one point when I was standing up against the wall with a bunch of other fans in the middle of the set, an elderly librarian came up to us and asked us if we would like seats… so yeah, definitely not your every day Dead Milkmen show, but it’s definitely one to remember.

Jeff Rosenstock, Chumped Live In Asbury Park (4/26/15)

rosenstockasbury

After hanging out at a Phillies game all day (just like a good Yankees fan…), my girlfriend and I headed to Asbury Lanes to catch Jeff Rosenstock play his last show of his current tour.  I caught him here in Philadelphia last month when he played with Andrew Jackson Jihad.  The place was decently packed for an 18+ show on a Sunday night, and I was impressed by how many younger fans were there (as proven by the lack of people singing along to bands such as The Misfits, NOFX, and The Bouncing Souls in between sets but plenty of people singing along to Rozwell Kid… definitely had to use SoundHound to figure out who that band was).

Chumped:

Chumped

We got there in time for Brooklyn pop-punk band Chumped, who’ve I’ve never seen before, besides briefly catching a bit of their set at the Philly show.  Female fronted pop punk, the band was in pretty high spirits as they blasted through an energetic set, playing music fans of Spraynard or Nona will surely dig.

They had John from BTMI/Jeff Rosenstock’s backing band come out for one song and play bass, and then had Jeff come out and play saxophone for another.  Things got a bit emotional on stage when the lead singer talked about the first time she met Jeff Rosenstock and broke out into tears as she talked about how cool it is and how much BTMI meant to her.  Very posi, but definitely very cheesy.  Nonetheless, they put on a solid set and had the crowd pretty amped for Jeff Rosenstock.

Jeff Rosenstock:

Jeff-Rosenstock

I’ve been a fan of Jeff Rosenstock’s music since I started listening and seeing Arrogant Sons of Bitches nearly 13 years ago (I’m showing my age…), and it’s crazy and sort of surreal to see how far he’s come musically.  He’s somehow risen to a sort of a cult celebrity hero in certain circles within the punk community, and has inspired countless of younger kids to get involved through Bomb The Music Industry.

Jeff and band took the stage, and immediately started talking about an incident that happened at an earlier show on tour where a girl was sexually assaulted.  It completely blows my mind that people within the community and especially fans of Jeff would this, and clearly it blows their mind as well, given the few minute speech of “we never DREAMED we’d have to say this, but that’s NOT OK.”

After saying what sadly clearly still needs to be said, they broke into We Cool opener “Get Old Forever.”  Fans pushed forward to sing along as people danced along in sort of one of the most awkward push pits I’ve ever seen… but the energy was definitely there.  The band continued to play songs off their latest We Cool while occasionally throwing in some from Rosenstock’s older EPs an albums.

With the occasional breakout jam session (including Taylor Swift’s Shake It Off), the band kept things light hearted when they did their encore, inviting Chumped on stage to sing along to 90s alternative hit “I’m a Bitch”.

Highlights:
Get Old Forever
You, In Weird Cities
Darkness Records
The Trash The Trash The Trash
Hey Allison
Nausea
Snow Charges
Beers Once Again Alone

Bane, Backtrack Live In Philadelphia (4/23/15)

bane flyer

This past Thursday, I headed out to Philadelphia’s small bar Voltage Lounge to see one of my favorite hardcore bands of all time, Bane.  The place was decently packed when I got there, and I got there in time to catch Long Island hardcore dudes Backtrack.

Backtrack:

backtrackband

Backtrack is one of the bigger names in hardcore today, and it definitely showed once they took the stage.  A pit immediately broke out with people raging throughout the entirety of their set and didn’t let up.  7 year running Backtrack play a style of hardcore that takes it’s roots from NYHC bands like Madball, yet blends it with a faster youth-crew era style at times.

Personally, not my type of hardcore (I’m not a fan of the more metal infused breakdown hardcore), but they put on a solid and enjoyable set regardless with tons of stage presence and energy.  If you dig bands like Turnstile or Suburban Scum, you’d dig these guys.

Bane:

bane

I’ve seen Bane a shit load of times, and I’m always still insanely excited every time I see them.  Worcester’s Bane is one of the few bands who seem to truly love what they do, and play every show with a lot of heart and passion.  For a band that has been at it for 20 years now, this is beyond fucking impressive.

As Bane was setting up and mic checking, they started to sing along with the between sets music track “Lean On Me”, getting the entire crowd to sing along and having lighters thrown in the air waving back and forth: not your usual site at a Bane show.  That didn’t last long though, once they opened their set with “My Therapy”, we erupted into a frenzy of two steps, stage dives, and sing alongs, which only intensified as they segued straight into “Ali Vs Frazier”.

Usually when bands play songs off later albums, they don’t often get a big reaction (especially if you’ve been cranking out songs as long as Bane has), but everything off Don’t Wait Up was met with enthusiasm.  Of course, the song that got the biggest reaction was “Can We Start Again”, and people were jumping off speakers at this point.

Little side note: vocalist Aaron took some time to talk about how nothing on tour (and life) is certain, where they’ve played places they expected to be dead to be insane, and places the reaction are usually good to be low key, but that Philadelphia always goes off and is insane.  Usually I would think a band says that at every show, but I’ve seen Bane elsewhere, and there always is a good reaction in Philly compared to other places I’ve seen them.
