Seattle punks Success have announced dates for their “We Still Believe Tour”. It includes shows with Illinois pop-punk act The Copyrights.

Vocalist Aaron Rev commented on the tour:

“We’ve been working on the new record, and we’re stoked to get out and play some of the material off of it. What better way to do that then going down the West Coast with our buddies, The Copyrights?! We packed up our lumberjack outfits, picked up Bigfoot from the mountains, and we’re hauling him down the coast with us.”

DS Staff Picks – Hopeless Romantic’s Top 10 Albums of 2015 (Meredith)

2015 was one of the best years of my life, both personally and professionally. Throughout all of the excitement, including marrying the love of my life (my name is Hopeless Romantic, after all!), there were a number of albums that composed the soundtrack of my year. My newly adopted method of keeping a running list of great albums made writing this article easier in terms of remembering what came out, but not in terms of narrowing down my selections. A handful of albums just missed the cut, but I truly feel like the following 10 albums (and 1 EP) help make 2015 even more memorable. Check out my picks below!



DS Photo Gallery: Swingin’ Utters, Success, Bombpops, One Less Zero at DNA Lounge, SF (11.6.15)

Last Friday, I took the short journey from my house, down Mission, and over to 11th street to the legendary DNA Lounge to see the equally legendary local heroes Swingin’ Utters perform to friends, family, and fans alike. DNA is one of those no-frills venues, and was perfect for the sound of the night, with punk and grit in the air, but just enough of the melodic and catch to get you dancing and singing along.

In normal fashion, I missed the majority openers One Less Zero‘s set, which features Sara Wright on vocals (wife of Green Day drummer Tre Cool) and plays a classic punk sound reminiscent of a slightly softer Vice Squad with a pronounced West Coast tinge. You can have a listen to some of their tracks here.

Next up was San Diego’s female-fronted Bombpops, and a great follow-up to One Less Zero. Don’t let the pretty faces fool you here, these girls are tough as nails, and they rip through their set with a great balance of ripping guitar and bass, driving drums, and lyrics that make you think, but not too hard.

For me, the highlight of the show was Success‘ set. It was my first time seeing the Washington quintet, and they embody everything I love about punk. Rough around the edges, political, emotional, catchy at times, with the perfect amount of breaks, jumps, and woahs. At one point during the set, an incredibly inebriated fan fell and knocked his head on the bottom of the stage, and as fellow fans came to his aide the oaf-like drunk began swinging on his helpers until frontman Aaron Peters jumped off stage to help the fans and calm things down while security arrived and secured the scene. Rev was back on stage to the round of applause from the house, excited to pick up where we left off. Class act from a great band. The set ended with a sing-along of “Where Is The Revolution”, getting the venue nice and warm and energetic for headliners Swingin’ Utters.

I am lucky enough to be able to live in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area (SF proper to be exact), and am afforded so many opportunities to see so many incredible bands. Among these is Swingin’ Utters, who always rock the house and leave the crowd yearning for more. I most recently saw the band at the Fat Wreck 25th shows back in late August, so I was ripe for another Utters show. The set seemed to focus on some of the band’s faster, ‘rougher’ songs, one of which is “Five Lessons Learned”, which I can never not throw my hands in the air and get those legs moving. The rest of the night was filled with dancing, singing along, and getting rowdy – thanks to the help of some trusty friends to watch the camera gear. The show seemed to end way too soon, and as the venue emptied out, there was a feeling that the energy may spill out onto the streets…and it did.

Have a look at the night’s photos below.

Big thanks to Barry, Doc, Chelsea and Steph, and all the local friends that continue to make shows so incredible.



DS Photo Gallery & Show Review: Millencolin and Success in Santa Ana, CA (9/3/15)

I’ve been listening to Millencolin since college (that’s a long time for you keeping track). I never thought I would get the chance to see them live, until they announced their latest album, True Brew. I waited patiently for a US tour to be announced, and there it was – a Los Angeles date on the same night at my friend’s wedding. Luckily, through my disbelief at this unfortunate incident, I noticed that a Santa Ana date was the night before! Let me be honest though, driving 1.5 hours (each way) on a “school” night is not the most appealing thing in the world, but there was no way we were going to miss this show.

I must say, it was worth it. Every single second of this show was incredible. It was my first time at The Observatory in Santa Ana, but now I see why it attracts a large number of tours. It’s spacious, but still has a smaller feel that some mid-size venues. With only 2 bands, it was a shorter show, but the smaller bill was made up for in sing-a-longs, dancing, and banter.

Success opened the show. These Seattle-based punks are the real deal. I first saw them at this year’s Punk Rock Bowling, at their latest album Radio Recovery is already on my top 10 albums of the year list (spoiler alert!). These guys could have been the headliner, given their energy, engagement with the crowd, and catchy songs.

Millencolin took the stage next and it was worth the years-long wait to see them live! These guys were jumping around, running across the stage, and shredding their guitars while standing on the speakers. The crowd went absolutely wild and there wasn’t a slow moment in the set. Their encore event had 5 or more songs! I don’t think this review could really express the excitement of the evening and the realization that we, the crowd, we witnessing something special. Let’s just hope they are back in the US soon!

Check out the full gallery from the show below!

Success provide track by track commentary for new album “Radio Recovery”
