Introducing emo/punk act Brackish (Crucial Dudes, Podacter)

Meet Philadelphia’s Brackish. A new project spearheaded by scene veterans, Brackish combines beloved aspects of 90s emo with modern day punk. The quartet is geating up to release their debut EP “Young People” October 26th with a physical release through Good Sadie Media. Today we are proud to bring you a stream of “Recollection,” which will appear on the upcoming release.

Vocalist/Guitar Connor Byrne says of the track:

“Recollection is about the feeling of waiting for something and then once it arrives, being totally underwhelmed  that it is not what you expected. When you’re growing up you wonder what kind of adult you are going to be and how you will be different and most of the time, unbeknownst to most people, the answer is really up to you. There isn’t some exciting launch pad for a lot of people into adulthood, they create their own success and this song is touching on the feeling right before you figure that part out.”

You can give “Recollection” a listen below, and check out some upcoming tour dates below.

DS Photo Gallery: Hi-Fi Rock Fest at Queen Mary’s Park (pt. 4 of 4) – Street Dogs, Dead Kennedys

The crowd at Queen Mary’s had began to fill up in anticipation of Naked Raygun‘s stellar performance, and was starting to look like a proper music festival once the Boston veterans Street Dogs took to the stage. The band literally comes with an entourage, and their fan base reaches far and wide into a diverse collection of genres and generations. Perhaps it was to beat traffic, perhaps it was for other reasons, but after Street Dogs, the somewhat-still-full crowd began to thin a little for Dead Kennedys, fronted by vocalist Ron ‘Skip’ Greer.

You’ve heard it before, and I’ll say it again, but Street Dogs are one of those bands that I have to manage shooting and dancing. I love being able to photograph some of my favorite bands, however sometimes I wish could quit the gear and thrash like I once did (which I ultimately did for the last part of “Fighter” and beyond). The band performed favorites like “Tobe’s Got a Drinkin’ Problem”, “Punk Rock and Roll”, “Back To The World”, “In Defense of Dorchester”, and so many more. The guys even played one of my favorite Darkbuster songs “Skinhead”, which was incredible. Beer was spilling and fists were flying as Mike called out for a circle pit and fans obliged with all their might.

Dead Kennedys were headliners for the Hi-Fi Rock Fest, and fans had bore the sun and heat, the $2 bottles of water, and all the fried food you could ever want all for this moment. With East Bay Ray and Klaus Flouride (aka Geoffrey Lyall) still driving the strings, and D.H. Peligro still on percussion, the band sounded quite like the Dead Kennedys we all know and love. It’s just weird when there’s a divorce, ya know? I understand Leftover Crack decided to drop off this bill due to conflicts with playing with a ‘Dead Kennedys’ sans Biafra, but in all honesty, they missed out. The crowd hadn’t used up all their energy dancing to the Boston greats and were still begging for more, however after 11 hours of shooting and just as many bands, I retired to the white couches to enjoy the rest of set which lasted just over an hour. You can have a look at a video of the entire set here.

Have a look at photos from Street Dogs’ and Dead Kennedys’ sets below.

Big thanks to head honcho Dave Buck, and fellow promoters Darron Hemann and Derik O’Brien, and everyone else who made the day a great success and lots of fun!
