WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

Slaid Cleaves

June 26 • Southgate House Revival

0 Comments · Tuesday, June 25, 2013
When it comes to the struggles of the wandering troubadour, Slaid Cleaves knows the perils of that life from top to bottom. He's sung on the street for his supper in Ireland and Boston, played in Punk and Roots Rock bands for little or no return and fixed his own van on the road.   

The Hussy

June 24 • The Chameleon

0 Comments · Monday, June 17, 2013
 One minute the Hussy is thundering like the bastard twin of The Stooges and The Nomads and the next it bops around like The B-52s if they'd envisioned "Rock Lobster" as a brutal, lo-fi Punk manifesto.   

Before Hell Freezes Over

The case for inducting Punk pioneer Richard Hell into the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame

He’s a Kentuckian and architect of Punk, but Kentucky Music Hall of Fame seems to be in no rush to induct Lexington native/Punk icon Richard Hell.  

Going up in Style

Dropkick Murphys' deft Punk/Celtic mesh continues to draw fans

0 Comments · Wednesday, June 5, 2013
The band’s national profile has grown steadily over subsequent albums, while Dropkick Murphys have become hugely popular in the band’s hometown of Boston. The city has been celebrated in a number of the group’s songs, most notably “I’m Shipping Up to Boston.”    

Violent Affair

May 21 • Thompson House

0 Comments · Monday, May 13, 2013
Violent Affair reportedly came together to fill a local Street Punk niche no one else was filling — “We felt like if you wanted to hear a certain type of music, go and play it,” lead vocalist Dave Williams wisely said in a 2012 interview.   

Jon Dee Graham

April 23 • Southgate House Revival

0 Comments · Monday, April 15, 2013
Like former bandmate Alejandro Escovedo, Jon Dee Graham has also developed another side, another strength, in the eight solo albums he’s been releasing since 1997’s Escape From Monster Island. He’s a forcefully evocative singer/songwriter whose deeply gruff, soulful voice is reminiscent of Tom Waits.   

Warm Soda

April 3 • The Comet

0 Comments · Tuesday, April 2, 2013
If brevity is a virtue, Warm Soda should be up for some sort of musical sainthood. The Oakland, Calif., quartet’s debut album, the recently released Someone Like You, clocks in at just more than 27 minutes but its 12 tracks quiver with unbridled Pop/Punk intensity.    

Jason & the Punknecks

Jan. 11 • Southgate House Revival

0 Comments · Monday, January 7, 2013
The Punknecks’ bio doesn’t mince words. Calling themselves “Punky Tonkers,” Jason Punkneck is from Nashville while Polly Punkneck is from Kansas. The duo, along with their drummer Nick Punkneck, are apparently known for “a rowdy show of drinking, drugging, Jesus, smokin’ pot and living between heaven and hell.”   

Family Force 5

Dec. 14 • The Underground

0 Comments · Tuesday, December 11, 2012
You don’t often hear the terms “Crunk” and “Christian” in the same paragraph let alone the same band description, but Family Force 5 has accomplished the rare feat of combining Rap, Punk, Hardcore, Funk, Metal and Dance beats with a Christian perspective.   

Propagandhi

Nov. 3 • Madison Theater

0 Comments · Monday, October 29, 2012
These days, it’s hard enough for a Punk band to remain a cohesive unit for 26 months, let alone 26 years. But guitarist Chris Hannah and drummer Jord Samolesky have managed to keep Propagandhi active and relevant since launching the band in 1986.
