DS Photo Gallery: Old Firm Casuals, Suede Razors, Roadside Bombs at The Night Light, Oakland (1.30.16)

This past Saturday I nearly missed an incredible show featuring local favorites Old Firm Casuals, Suede Razors, and Roadside Bombs. I was supposed to work, and once I got the night off I found it terribly difficult to find tickets to the sold-out event. Alas, a ticket materialized and I headed across the Bay Bridge to the sauna that is The Night Light. If the previous week’s show’s theme was youthful energy, this show’s theme was ‘old punks’. Indeed, all the bands have been around in the scene for quite awhile, and at 30, I found myself as one of the younger attendees.

Roadside Bombs opened the night in classic fashion with some great sounds of the street. The band is punk-driven, but definitely has a melodic side that shines through. There’s plenty of opportunities to sing along with some gang vocals too, especially with songs like “Not Everybody Knows a Good Thing”, “My Side Of Town”, “Tax Revolution”, “Bring ‘Em Home”, and more just to name a few. Definitely the perfect fit for the lineup, and a great opener for the night. The band most recently released “My Side Of Town” back in 2014, which you can listen to here.

Things got a little more intense as Darrel, Mike and crew took to the stage for Suede Razors, featuring members of Harrington Saints, Sydney Ducks, Hounds & Harlots, and more, these guys are no strangers to the scene. A Suede Razors show is like a trip to your local bar, singing along to pub songs with your mates – just with a punk/skinhead tinge to it. In fact, the intro to “Bovver Boys” sounds like something you would hear in an English pub after a soccer match. The band has really done well creating a unique sound that builds off all the guys’ collective experience. “Here She Comes” gets you off your barstool and maybe not dancing, but definitely nodding your head along to the beat. One of my favorites is “Longshot Kid”, which builds up and will have you throwing fists in the air by the end.

I don’t know what it is, but it has proven to be a challenge of entry for every band Lars is in. I hear he is a fan of dyingscene, however it seems our press requests always fall on deaf ears. Persistence and perseverance are the names of the game, and I managed to be up front and center as Old Firm Casuals took the stage. I’ve seen the band several times over the years, and it amazes me that photos from their set at The Blank Club nearly 6 years ago still remain at the top of Google image searches. It’s great to see Lars’ voice shine through in a new light outside of the Rancid sound we’ve all become accustomed to. He’s got the perfect amount of grit and melody – no frills vocals at its best. It was definitely a treat to see “Skinhead” performed live, among other favorites.

You can view set photos below.

Huge thanks to Ian, Ben, Darrel, Skip, and Chelsea for helping out, and cheers to all the Pirates and Chapter 11 crew! It’s always great seeing you all.
