The Offspring are no longer in their heyday, but you wouldn’t know it by the crowd at Pier 17 in NYC On Tuesday. Maybe it was the beautiful May weather, the gorgeous sunset, or just a bunch of 90s nostalgia. However, fans young and old (myself included in the latter) filed onto the rooftop venue to hear hit after […]
I recently bought last-minute tickets to the third evening of Jawbreaker’s three-night residency at Irving Plaza, celebrating their 25th anniversary. I arrived kind of late and, to my surprise, The Linda Lindas, the teen, Asian-American, an all-female punk band from Los Angeles that took the world by storm during the darkest days of the pandemic with a […]
Ignorance… you’re on notice, we’re coming for your ass.
The current iteration of the Vibrators came across the pond from merry old England to play Bowery Electric last weekend and I made it out. It was an uncharacteristically good weekend for punk rock in NYC this one particular weekend with Fear playing Gramercy Theatre the night before (Friday) and Leggs McNeil lecturing the following Sunday […]
I recently revisited Medellin, Colombia after an almost 8-year absence (yeah, I’ve been a bit busy). Having once semi-lived in Medellin, I know the city pretty well, thanks largely in part to my punk rock amigos and particularly to Andres O’Campo, lead singer of the now legendary punk band Los Suziox. I’d seen Andres a […]
I remember my 1st concert like it was yesterday. Well, ok not quiet, but I do remember parts of it quiet clearly. It was sometime in the early to mid 80s I think, when a little known musician named John Cougar was opening for the legendary sister rockers Heart. At the time, John Cougar was […]
New Orleans, Louisiana – Now that place has some musical heritage, of that, there is little doubt. Finally, we’re heading there in December to give you the low down on the underground music scene there. One group of folks we’ll be sure hooking up with is Community Records, a cool concept for a record label […]
GOOD NEWS! Our pals the Dorados Rockabilly Trio is going on tour.
It was August of 2009 and I was going through a serious life change. I had sold the company I had started from scratch 8 years earlier, “American Latino Syndication” and after producing over 300 episodes and nearly killing myself in the process, I was no longer beholden to schedule that meant managing almost 30 […]
HOLLYWOOD: The big Orgy concert at Whiskey A Go Go was scheduled for Monday night. I had to fly out Tuesday morning at some ungodly hour. What to do? Go see my boys (AKA and formerly “The Russian Interns”) open up for them and then go home. Tickets were $20 and I’d only get to […]
Yeah, I’m swamped but that doesn’t mean I’m not thinking of you. I just don’t feel like writing after 12 hours days and traveling like crazy. In fact, I can’t even sleep, much less write. But I can read and look at pics (it helps me sleep), so if you’re suffering from insomnia like me […]
I’m in Denver (cool) en route to Chicago (cold) en route to Miami (hot) on the “no sleep” express which is to say Southwest airlines at god awful early flights in foreign time zones that is zapping my energy and yes, my will to live. Thank God for coffee. Assuming I survive this 15-20 city […]
We know why people do voting contest right? It’ drives mad traffic for their website. And we act like monkeys and respond by voting, and asking our friends to vote, etc., etc. Yet it’s not every day one of our artists gets a chance to be MTV’s favorite artist of the week, so I’m going […]
I know, I know… Sorry for the headline, couldn’t help myself. Gorilla has been around for about 20 or so years and was credited by many with being the first psychobilly band in all of Hungary. I was able to catch up with them after their big Killing Billy psychobilly show last month while we […]
If you know rockabilly, you probably know about The Polecats, a damned near legendary British rockabilly band that’s been doing it since, get this, 1977! They were the final act at the recent Viva Las Vegas Car Show Stage last Saturday and it was cool to see some living legends do their thing live […]
Here is a little video clip from the Atomic Drifters (Denver) Performing at Viva Las Vegas.. Enjoy!
Our good buddies Youth Brigade are coming to Los Angeles! Oh wait, they live here. OK, our good buddies, Youth Brigade are playing in LA! Ok, they are not our good buddies, we met the lead brother, Shawn Stern once in NYC but hey, he was cool and he seemed to like us. He really […]
Needless to say I was stoked (how is that for some so-cal vocabulary?) to be shooting my favorite band of all time up close and personal. My flash was malfunctioning but I still managed to get some decent pics as Ness and Co. came out and immediately kicked it old school with “Atom Bomb”.
HOLD EVERYTHING: Here is an email I got from the promoter, Black Cat, today. I’ll try to keep you updated as I get information: We are sorry to inform you that our Evil Devil show on Dec 10th,11th has been rescheduled until February 10th & 11th 2012 Valentines Weekend We are very sorry to have […]
