DS Photo Gallery: Mad Caddies, Aggrolites, Nathen Maxwell & The Bunny Gang at Slims, SF

Last Friday I was able to see three amazing bands perform at one of my favorite venues, Slim’s in San Francisco. Nathen Maxwell & The Original Bunny Gang, The Aggrolites, and Mad Caddies were to share the stage, and the air was ripe for a funky, bass-driven, night of ska and reggae.

Many may be familiar with Nathen Maxwell as bassist for Flogging Molly, but over the past several years, he has established himself as a really talented musician and front man. With his Original Bunny Gang, Maxwell & co are preparing to release their third studio album, “Thrive”, this fall through Hardline Entertainment. Nathen’s stage presence and energy were really a great way to kick off the night, with Aggrolites next to the stage.

It was almost as if there was a progression of noise, speed, and rambunctiousness as the night went on, as it should – and Aggrolites were front and center getting fans going. While it’s worth mentioning that San Francisco Bay Area fans in attendance could most definitely benefit from watching and learning how the old ska/reggae legends used to dance, and at least maybe take note. That being said, despite the clusterfuck of a ska ‘pit’, The Aggrolites played an amazing show. It’s always incredible watching organ players like Roger Rivas chopping up the ivory. It sounds so great and looks so cool! I don’t know how they do it.

The air was thick and warm, the scent of beer and smoke filled the heavy dance floor as ska/punk veterans Mad Caddies took the stage. Despite their longevity, I had managed to never before seen the group, so I was super stoked. After knocking out my photos I secured my gear and headed for the pit. This is the kind of music I grew up on, and the type I love most to dance to. Kinda crazy, kinda funky, jazzy, punky…it’s a great blend that the Caddies have been perfecting for over two decades. Although no ‘Road Rash’ or ‘The Gentleman’ were played, I left very satisfied, and very sweaty.

Have a look at all the photos from the night’s performances below.
