This past weekend, San Francisco played host to many memorable events, the most important of course being the 10th anniversary parties for local record label Pirates Press. The weekend full of concerts began on Friday night with some local blood in the form of Harrington Saints, Reducers SF, and Custom Fit, with a little addition of some British blood in Argy Bargy.

Santa Cruz-based Custom Fit brings a bit of the old-school wherever they go, and I must say was a really proper start to the weekend’s festivities. As always, the first band to the stage typically finds difficulty getting the crowd moving, but Sabi and crew never seem to have this issue. The band rounded out their set by inviting Hannah McFaull on stage to help cover her dad’s “Teenage Heart”.

Next to the stage was San Francisco’s own Reducers SF. The Bay Area groups on stage that night were no strangers to each other, and it’s almost as if they were meant to play with each other. The band’s brand of classic street punk was a great follow-up to Custom Fit, and to top it off, Cock Sparrer frontman Colin McFaull joined the guys on stage to help out on vocals with their song “Last Train”. It was at about this point that I thought to myself, “if the rest of the weekend continues the same as these first two hours have, we are in for one hell of a trip!”

Harrington Saints are a band that I have been privileged to see many times, and the energy the band exudes is something you have to witness. Frontman Darrel gets very intimate with the crowd, often inviting fans to share the microphone with him. The band just released a new 7″, “Upright Citizen”, and played a few new songs for fans to sing along to. The night of local bands came to an end as Watford, Darryl, and crew rounded out the ‘pre-party’ with Argy Bargy.

Formed in 1992, Argy Bargy is no stranger to the international punk scene. After last seeing them in England, it was great to see them at my local venue Thee Parkside. Great end to a wonderful start to the weekend, and at this point recovery was on my mind for the long day ahead.

You can view all shots from Friday’s shows below, and stay tuned for more shots of the main “Rock The Ship” event featuring Cock Sparrer, Bouncing Souls, Street Dogs, and many more coming in the next few days.

I’ve never heard of Red Kap before but they appear to be some sort of clothing line and for whatever reason they did a pretty cool little “behind the scenes” video with Social Distortion frontman and guitarist Mike Ness.  Make him look like some all American badass really.  Check it out below.

Ness recently revealed that Social Distortion plans to be back in the studio a couple days a week to work on their anticipated new album, which he hopes will be released next year. He also revealed that he has been working on a solo album, which will be his first since 1999′s Under the Influences.

Social Distortion last released Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes through Epitaph Records in 2011.

Wringer announce hiatus

Posted by vdubowner on Wednesday, October 29, 2014 at 4:26 PM (PST)

Well it looks like we’ll have to wait before hearing Wringer‘s upcoming album…In fact, the Indiana pop-punk trio have announced that they’ll be going on hiatus for an unknown period of time after they’re done with their ongoing tour. But rest assured, they’re not breaking up.

Here’s what they had to say:

Hey friends. After Monday, we’re not gonna be playing any shows or proceeding to record any new songs or anything for the foreseeable future. We’re not “breaking up”. We’re just taking an indefinite break… So if you were on the fence about seeing us over the weekend, or buying a record or a shirt or whatever, because you figured you’d see us play at some point in the near future, you’d be wrong. We’re not doing this to be dramatic or get attention, just wanted to give a heads up to anyone who might care. Not trying to see any “RIP WRINGER” BS online. We’ve just got different ideas and things brewing and they simply don’t involve playing together as Wringer right now. We’ve had a ton of fun giving this everything we’ve got and maybe we’ll get back to it in a while. Who knows? Never say never again.

-Anthony, Jake, & Jared

PS – Here’s the shows we have coming up!

10/29 – Greenville, SC @ Makeout Manor w/ Rubrics, The Sidekicks, All Dogs, Caulfield Cult
10/30 – Orlando, FL @ The Geek Easy w/ Two Hand Fools, Caffiends, Among Giants
11/1 – Gainesville, FL @ Loosey’s (FEST 13!!!)
11/3 – Atlanta, GA @ Wonderroot w/ Arms Aloft, Nato Coles & The Blue Diamond Band, Seagulls, Anchor Bends

PPS – Again, this is by no means a “final” decision, but nevertheless I do wanna say A HUGE thank you to everyone who has supported our band. There are too many of you to begin to name but Smellhound Records and The Headies get special mentions. You all rule.”

Wringer last released “Bullfighter” back in 2013, through Smellhound Records. You can stream/download it for free on their Bandcamp and read our review of the album right here.
