Swingin Utters Live In Philly (11/10/17)

Damn…I’m a bit late on this, but I wanted to post about it anyway so fuck it.  A few weeks back I headed to Philly’s center city bar Milkboy in order to catch San Francisco punk veterans Swingin Utters. Even though it was a Friday night, I wasn’t really sure what to expect in terms of crowd size, as last time I caught them not many people seemed to really know them during the Fat Wreck anniversary tour a few years back.  Add the fact […]

Fat Wreck Chords have been around a LONG time.  A staple in punk rock, Fat Mike of NOFX’s record label were a huge influnece on defining the skate punk sound throughout the 90s and early 2000s.  To this day, they still crank out some solid releases and even though they pretty much pioneered the one album deal with bands, they have many alumni on their roster who have exclusively released albums through the label.

San Francisco based Swingin’ Utters have been at it since the late 80s, and if their latest album is any indication, then they certainly […]

Lagwagon, Swingin Utters, This Legend Live in Philly (12/4/14)

This past Thursday, I headed to Philadelphia’s TLA in order to catch one hell of a lineup… Lagwagon and Swingin Utters.  I got to the venue on a chilly Thursday evening, and the place was pretty empty when I arrived.  I missed the first opener but got there in time for This Legend. This Legend: I’ve never heard of This Legend before the show, but apparently the LA pop-punk band consists of ex members from Yellowcard.  I’ve never really gotten into Yellowcard so I can’t […]
