Punk Rock Bowling Vegas: Night Three – Angelic Upstarts, D.O.A., Nathen Maxwell & The Bunny Gang, Chuck Ragan

After Day Two main stage, and losing then finding my beloved scally cap during Descendents, and at this point on hour 30 of being awake, my body and my emotions were on survival mode. And no time to relax, as I ran back to the hotel to refresh, then was out the door in a moment, heading out to The Beauty Bar to check out one of my favorite acoustic musicians currently – Chuck Ragan.

The man’s voice, demeanor, lyrical content, and power are on display for all to see, commanding attention and respect wherever he plays. The dude will make a grown man cry with some of his reflective, thoughtful paroles. He’ll also make you smile the way he describes scenes of pure love with such joy and imagery. Unfortunately, everything at Punk Rock Bowling is on a schedule, so I had to click my shots and head out for a little change of pace and see D.O.A. at Las Vegas Country Saloon.

I had recently seen D.O.A. back in San Francisco, and the guys killed it to a small, Parkside crowd. LVCS was packed for the event and D.O.A. didn’t disappoint. I stuck around long enough to hear “Fuck You”, then I was on my way to Fremont Country Club for Angelic Upstarts.

The Upstarts are one of those bands that just exudes punk cred. The band has been one of the most influential in the punk world – forming back in 1977 and really being at the forefront of the anti-fascist movement. Due to time constraints, I left before I heard any of my favorites like “Last Night Another Soldier”, “Police Oppression”, and “Liddle Towers”. Apparently there was some Nazi scum at the show and at some point they stomped a bouncer who was standing up. Racist people should learn that they are not welcome any where in the punk scene, and that they are outnumbered. Go find a different scene to bastardize you racist fucks.

Now that that is out of the way…I was fading after the long days festivities, but I had been invited to a small, intimate show with Nathen Maxwell & The Bunny Gang at Hogs & Heifers. I couldn’t stay long as my body was finally giving out on me – but I was there long enough to see Nathen & co. hop up on the bar and perform their set alongside the beautiful bartenders of the biker bar.

Day Two and Night Three were definitely the longest and most intense of the three day, four night party – and you can have a look at all the photos from the Sunday club shows below.

Stay tuned for Day Three and some shots from Punk Rock Karaoke in the next days.

DS Photo Gallery: DOA, Ruleta Rusa, Isotope Thee Parkside SF

Jello stopped by to see ol friends DOA

It was a night of hardcore – of crust, grit, and distortion – at Thee ol Parkside this past Wednesday night. Canadian punk veterans D.O.A. were set to headline, with locals Isotope and Ruleta Rusa opening the crowd.

I feel like I have seen the guys in Isotope many times before at random local shows in the past, but I have never seen them perform. The band plays a classic style of 80s D-beat punk, mixed with modern hardcore energy. The band is fast, in your face, and sloppy (in a good way). You can listen to a sample of some of their work here.

I have seen Ruleta Rusa several times before, and whenever I see them on the bill, I know it’s going to be a gnarly show. Vocalist Jose is one of those frontmen who drive the energy of the crowd by leading by example. He’s all over the place, jumping, screaming, throwing fists, and getting as close to fans as possible. I love this kind of punk music. It’s out of control yet guided, predictable yet not, and the vocals are my favorite type of grit and grime. The band recently released their “Lathe Cut” 7″, which you can listen to here.

The time had come for the British Columbia punks DOA to regale us with good ol punk rock lullabies to round out the night. I have seen the 80s legends only once before, so I was definitely excited to see what they had to offer. DOA is in the process of releasing their newest album “Hard Rain Falling”, and of course shared some new material with fans. But it wouldn’t be a DOA show if the band didn’t sample heavily off of their legendary album “Hardcore 81”, which they did to everyone’s delight. This is truly one of those iconic, timeless, top 50 best punk albums of all time, and to see the aging Cannucks rock it like they did 30 years ago was really a treat to see.

You can have a look at all the shots from the night’s sets below.
