Lagwagon, NOFX, Strung Out & more to play Amnesia Rockfest 2016

Festival organizers have announced the lineup for the 2016 edition of Amnesia Rockfest. Bands playing this year’s installment of the long-running Canadian festival include Lagwagon (playing Hoss in its entirety), NOFX, Strung Out, Millencolin, Mustard Plug, Wizo, Streetlight Manifesto, Guttermouth, Blink-182, and many more.

Additionally, Fat Mike will be playing solo as “Cokie The Clown” – this should be interesting considering what happened when he did that at SXSW a few years ago. Also of note is that No Use For A Name (Special Tribute) is listed on the festival’s poster, which I assume will be NUFAN playing songs with frontmen of other bands handling singing duties in place of Tony Sly.

The Ultimate Punk Rock Valentine’s Day Playlist

We all know that Valentine’s Day isn’t a real holiday. It’s nothing more than a dastardly ploy concocted by advertising conglomerates to separate you from your hard earned money, all cleverly wrapped in pink and red heart shaped boxes of chocolate. However, there’s no reason we can’t use their fabricated, financial booby trap as a good excuse to acknowledge and show appreciation for those we love. Doing that doesn’t cost a dime! Now, the hard part. Outside of Emo, the Punk genre isn’t known to produce a ton of great odes to love. So how will you ever be able to convey your feelings using your preferred music format without racking your brain, trying to remember “that artist, that released that one random love song that one time, on that album about 10 years ago”? Don’t fret! We’ve compiled the most comprehensive list of punk rock love songs for you to woo the love of your life with. Because we’re a bunch of cynical, sarcastic assholes without a romantic bone in our bodies, we’ve decided to exclude the more traditional love songs, which means no Emo bands allowed (I’m certain that over half our readers just cheered, silently in their heads). We’ve included songs from almost every other genre for every type of relationship though. Who knows, perhaps you’ll use one of the songs on our list and end up finding the perfect someone. It’s highly doubtful, but possible. You’ll never know unless you check out our Ultimate Punk Rock Valentine’s Day Playlist, in no particular order below!

DS Photo Gallery & Show Review: Lagwagon (Performing Hoss), Runaway Kids & PEARS (Los Angeles 11/15/15)

When punk rock legends like Lagwagon come to your town, you go to the show even if it’s a Sunday night. You could tough it out and suffer a little on Monday even if you were a bit hungover and sore. But, add to the mix veteran LA act Runaway Kids and the rapidly rising neophytes from Naw’lins, PEARS, and what you got yourself there is a recipe for disaster and a pass to play hooky on Monday! Luckily, we’re always looking for any excuse we can to get LA staffer, Anarchopunk out of the office so he was the natural choice to send down to the Troubadour in West Hollywood for an incredible show! Check out the full show review and photo gallery below!

DS Photo Gallery & Show Review: Fat Wreck 25th Anniversary Show in Los Angeles (8/24/15)

I’m not sure what I can say about Fat Wreck 25 that hasn’t already been said in our stories about Boston and the two day San Francisco blowout, but I had a blast at the last night of this tour here in Los Angeles. There’s nothing like taking off early on a Monday for a 2pm door time and 9 bands covering 25 years of one of the most legendary labels in punk rock.

While eating lunch near The Palladium, among many people wearing various Fat Wreck band tshirts, I received a text from a fellow DS editor with the news that Face To Face were going to play a surprise set! I quickly confirmed this via Instagram and when we arrived at the venue, the set times were posted on the will-call and guest list windows. As I checked in for my photo pass, I had the opportunity to see many fans discover this news and lose their minds. This was just the beginning of a great day.

The day kicked off with toyGuitar, whose melodic surfer-punk sound was a nice compliment to the sun still streaming through the side doors. I enjoyed their energy and they set the tone for the show; they were just a taste of what was to come.

Los Angeles was one of the cities privileged enough to have PEARS on the bill. I first saw these guys in a warehouse show about a year ago and was blown away. I can safely say that their stage presence, even early in the day in a larger venue, is incredible. There is so much passion and power in their set – you can’t help but feel like you are witnessing something special. I am really looking forward to more music from these guys and later found out they will be back in LA soon with Lagwagon!

Now, I’m a huge Masked Intruder fan. I will always have a special place in my heart for lovesick pop-punk, and I appreciate these guys’ commitment to their personas. My husband dedicated “25 to Life” to me the day we got engaged and it was the last song of the night at our wedding – so needless to say, I am always excited to see their live set. I’d like to give a special shoutout to Officer Bradford, who gave me a nice little gem of a photo (below), danced with the crowd, and ended the set in nothing more than a jock strap. This party had begun!

The Flatliners are a band that I can listen to on repeat for days on end. They consistently put out great albums and their live show is energetic and fun. I love seeing a band that truly loves what they do, and The Flatliners are a prime example. They could have been the headliner and I would have been able to leave happy. However, this was only the halfway point!

Swingin’ Utters were up next and helped transition the evening into the older Fat Wreck bands. The sun was starting to set outside and the crowd was getting rowdier.

Next, Strung Out got the party really started – those who had to come after work were starting to arrive and the crowd members who had been there since 2 were keeping the party going. I have had the pleasure to shoot Strung Out twice this summer, and their live show blows me away every time. The highlight for me was their cover of NUFAN’s “Soulmate,” which is one of my favorite tracks off The Songs of Tony Sly.

Joey Cape and Lagwagon came storming out next, ripping through a fantastic set list full of crowd sing-a-longs. Joey also announced that when they return in November, they will be playing Trashed one night and Hoss the other. They even changed up their last song to take a request from the audience. By far, they were one of the crowd favorites, which is expected in the Fat Wreck crowd.

Face To Face took the stage next for their “surprise” set. Although they only played a few songs, it was a real treat to have such an unexpected addition to the lineup. It was obvious the love between the band and the crowd was mutual and it was a great “feel good” moment of the night.

Now, I’ll be honest – with the addition of Face To Face, I was secretly hoping that Spike was hidden somewhere backstage and we would be treated to a surprise Gimmes set. It didn’t happen, and I can continue to be jealous of those who were in SF.

Lastly, NOFX took the stage. Fat Mike, dressed in lingerie, commanded the audience’s attention with his stage banter and the band’s setlist of both old and new favorites. It’s only fitting that the end of the night featured NOFX celebrating both 25 years of Fat Wreck and the end of the tour. There were many happy people leaving the venue that night (which probably led to lots of hungover people on Tuesday) and it was a night none of us will soon forget.
