Show Review: Altercation Punk Rock BBQ 2015

Posted by Neeson on Friday, March 27, 2015 at 3:48 PM (PST)

So how do you take a miserable fucking day and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile?

You grab an umbrella, a raincoat, or wrap yourself up in a trash bag and make it over to the 5th annual Altercation Punk Rock BBQ where hundreds of punks show up year after year regardless of the unbelievably shitty weather to hear some great bands and grab some beers and BBQ.

This fifth year of punk rock fun sponsored by Altercation Records was again held at Vortex in Austin Texas and coincided with the SXSW Music conference where thousands of bands and music types from all over the world converge for a week of meet and greet music industry madness, and where anybody who is anybody in punk rock makes their way over to the BBQ that the folks over at Altercation Records throw every year…“What more could you ask for? We have the best fans and the best scene in the world! Look at all these people coming out in the rain to see these bands…and zero assholes, it’s great, just great!” exclaimed Altercation Records co-owner and party host JT Habersaat.

Despite the downpour hundreds of punks descended on the Vortex to check out this years show. Upon arrival there were over 80 people lined up waiting to get in, and even with the rain they just kept coming. This years line up consisted of 12 bands although a few had cancelled due to family emergency, illness, or the rain. But being that it was the Altercation Punk Rock BBQ and there is always a flood of bands who come down to Austin every year eager to play SXSW, those slots were quickly filled and the show went off without a hitch.

With high energy performances by The Sharp Lads who donned dresses and Halloween masks. Alt country by The Grizzly Band, Killer street punk sets by Sniper 66, Riverside Riot, and Three’s Away, along with some old school hardcore punk by fan favorites Two Fisted Law, and a truly stellar set by the American roots band Blackeyed Vermillion the Altercation Punk Rock BBQ once again turned out to be a well balanced meal of punk rock fun with a little something for everyone. This was my favorite event of SX and personally look forward to making it back next year, hopefully under dryer and less muddy conditions.

Below are a few photos of this years event taken by Dave TV, to show you what you missed or remind you of what you experienced.

Podcast: Dying Scene Radio ep. #10 (special guests: Joe Queer, Blag Dhalia)

Posted by Johnny X on Friday, March 27, 2015 at 10:03 AM (PST)

This week on Dying Scene Radio, Bob Noxious interviews Joe Queer, guitarist and lead singer of the legendary American punk rock band The Queers on their co-headlining ticket with The Dwarves at BackBooth in Orlando, FL. And Bobby Pickles slurs through his end of this week’s podcast drunk on whiskey.

Dwarves’ frontman Blag Dahlia denies Noxious’ allegations of conspiracy to expel Bobby Pickles from The Bowery Electric on this two-part series concerning “some obscure dude from New York”.

SYNOPSIS OF BANTER:

Bobby asks Bob about how he got his start in radio. Bob explains his humble beginnings on a local Pirate Radio Station and growing up the son of a 70′s A.M. Radio “Hot Jock” DJ.

Bobby declares, “pop-anything sucks”, including but not limited to pop-country and pop-hip-hop and pop-punk; he then continues on with a news story about Blink 182. Bob continues to be amazed that the aforementioned band remains seemingly relevant to the patrons of dyingscene.com and quickly dismisses them.

Bob asks Joe Queer why punk rock legends are so much more accessible than the untouchable rock heroes of yesteryear. Joe tells Bob about meeting Joey Ramone and eventually working with him on his solo record. Legendary! (There’s that word again). Later, Blag baba-booeys the interview, asking Joe about “the blow and all that stuff”.

Bob discusses his deep seething hatred of the “emo/kid/bubblegum/pop” bands who are continually signed to Epitaph, explaining further that the only relevant band still left on the label is Bad Religion (not true, see: Rancid, Pennywise, Millencolin, Propagandhi, The Descendents…and the list goes on and on).

Talk turns to all of the different silly names that record labels are naming themselves.

Bobby mentions looking forward to seeing Less Than Jake in New Haven, then gloats that there are no Florida dates for Bob to catch. Bob informs Bobby that LTJ’s frontman, Chris DeMakes, lives in the same Florida city as he, continuing that they play roughly eight local shows per year.

Bobby, once again, invites Bob to New York for a yearly shindig, then accuses him of being “too pushy” when Bob suggests an interview request with NJ hardcore band, Bigwig. Passive-aggressive puns are passed around playfully as Bob chastises Bobby for a slow news week at DyingScene.com when his supposed “jouralist” co-host covers a story about “some dude’s record collection” – Bobby waxing on about Minor Threat’s Filler EP.

Anti-Flag to release new 10-inch “Sky Is Falling”

Posted by Screeching Bottlerocket on Friday, March 27, 2015 at 9:13 AM (PST)

Pittsburgh punk veterans Anti-Flag have announced they will be releasing a new 10-inch EP titled Sky Is Falling on April 28th. The title track will appear on the band’s upcoming full-length American Spring, and the b-side is a newly remastered version of “Close Your Eyes,” which was previously only available through the band’s 20 Years of Hell 7-inch series.

The most interesting thing about this 10-inch which is limited to 500 copies is that it’s a die-cut picture disc that looks like a drone strike. Don’t believe me? See for yourself below. And if that inspires you to drop 13 smackeroonies on 2 tracks, head over here for pre-orders.

Anti-Flag’s new studio album American Spring is due out on May 26th through Spinefarm Records. You can also get it on A-F Records, as part of their newly-announced 2015 Record Club. The band’s last record The General Strike was released in 2012 via SideOneDummy.
