This Is A Protest Song

It has been a while since I last attended a night of completely folk punk bands. The last time was back in June when Escape from the Zoo played the Trunk Space. Like that night, Bad Times played. Although in that case, it was just Diego. For this night, not only did we get all of Bad Times, but there was a first for me with Harley Poe and a favorite in the Homeless Gospel Choir. Opening up was the new look at Bad Times. Taking away the solo performance,…

Super Rad!

There are bands that are just pure joy. That joy can come to an audience through the lyrics they write, the way they perform, or just in how they treat their fans. For me, the Aquabats bring all of those kind of joys. Not only that, they were the second ska band I got into after discovering the genre. The song that first grabbed my attention was the one about school lunch and a celebrated food, “Pizza Day.” I have been attending their performances for the past fifteen years, not…

That Small Venue Feel

Venues define the personality of a show. How much a venue defines that personality varies from place to place. For some of the midsize to larger, it can create a distant experience. In those spaces, it is up to a band’s performance to engage the crowd more. However, the smaller spaces bring the sense of energy closer to both the fans and the bands. From the moment it was announced that Guttermouth was playing the Yucca Tap Room, I was excited. That is a room that the performance style of…

Tsunami Bomb “The Spine That Binds” Album Review

The time has finally come. Tsunami Bomb’s first studio release in fifteen years has released today. For an early self-admittance, I didn’t get into the band’s music until years after they had broken up in 2004. I know, because I remember staying back in the stands of Peoria Sports Complex, for Warped Tour 2003, when a high school friend tried to get me to watch them. I have course corrected in that time, digging into their catalog and making amends. It helped that they compiled some of their greatest hits…
