WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

Lagwagon

Oct. 6 • Thompson House

Joey Cape might be among Punk’s busiest purveyors, but his longest standing and best-known band is obviously Lagwagon, one of the original Punk/Pop groups that emerged from the early ’90s California scene.   

Teenage Bottlerocket with NOFX, Loudmouth and The Dopamines

Sept. 19 • Bogart's

Are you a fan of Ramones-indebted Pop Punk that worships Top Gun and Evil Dead, cracks wise-ass observations about Metal show mosh pits and likes to creep out the womenfolk when out in an automobile? If so, congratulations — Teenage Bottlerocket's Freak Out is now your favorite record ever.   

Girl, Interrupted

San Antonio trio Girl In A Coma learned and grew from a series of unfortunate events

If there’s a recurring theme that seems to sum up the events of the past few years for Texas trio Girl In A Coma (including the trio’s latest album, Exits & And All The Rest) it boils down to one word — growth.   

The Casualties

Sept. 13 • Bogart's

If we were to define Punk Rock acts in terms of food, Bad Religion would be a complex salad, Black Flag a slab of lean steak, Ramones a rich all-toppings-in sundae and The Casualties a box of Twinkies with a side of barbecue-flavored Ruffles chips.   

Worst Nights, Best Music

Mixtapes stockpile their favorite songs to create Even on the Worst Nights

0 Comments · Wednesday, July 25, 2012
Mixtapes guitarist/vocalist Ryan Rockwell and his bandmates developed an interesting songwriting regimen after the release of their first recording. Whenever Rockwell and Maura Weaver, Mixtapes’ guitarist/vocalist and Rockwell’s songwriting partner, would hit on a particularly resonant tune, they would relegate it to a slush pile of material for an album they intended to serve as their full-length debut. Mixtapes’ song bank proved to be an effective strategy.   

The Avett Brothers

June 7 • Fraze Pavilion (Kettering)

Remember a few years ago when you couldn’t walk into a Starbucks without hearing the words, “Three words that became hard to say/I and love and you?” At the time, you probably rolled your eyes, but The Avett Brothers ended up becoming kind of a big deal. While “I and Love and You,” as a song, was mostly mellow and Folk-ish, it’s far from a decent indicator of the sort of noise the Brothers are capable of creating.  

Natural Child

May 25 • Ballroom at the Taft Theatre

0 Comments · Friday, May 18, 2012
 Although Natural Child coalesced back in 2009, they sound like they’ve been around forever. Almost stereotypically young, the Nashville trio’s influences date to their parents’ record collections and that sense of musical classicism is infused with an appropriate dose of hormonal rage and rebellion.   

The Revival Tour with Chuck Ragan, Dan Andriano, Cory Branan and Nathaniel Rateliff

April 5 • 20th Century Theater

0 Comments · Monday, April 2, 2012
 What would you call a rotating collection of Punk superstars who assemble for an annual acoustic front porch hootenanny that crisscrosses the country to the ecstatic response of thousands of their biggest fans? Chuck Ragan calls it The Revival Tour, while the Phoenix New Times dubbed it “Punk Rock’s answer to the Traveling Wilburys.”    

Bow Down

Though not all ‘metalheads,’ Priestess keeps real Metal alive and kicking

0 Comments · Wednesday, May 6, 2009
If there’s one thing to be absorbed from the music of Priestess, it’s that Heavy Metal still has the power to liberate. While histrionics-heavy Metalcore and cheaply crafted Radio Rock can be found clotting iTunes playlists, Priestess’ sweeping scapes are an excellent diversion.   

The Hands Across Basements Fest

Returning for a second year of underground Punk goodness

0 Comments · Wednesday, April 29, 2009
Maybe The Ramones said it best on the seventh track of their 1976 debut album: “Hey daddyo/I don’t wanna go down/To the basement/There’s somethin’ down there.” Imagine the place these primal punks were conjuring up: A damp, dimly lit underground room in an ancient house with a low-hung ceiling.
