DS Photo Gallery: Swingin’ Utters, Success, Bombpops, One Less Zero at DNA Lounge, SF (11.6.15)

Last Friday, I took the short journey from my house, down Mission, and over to 11th street to the legendary DNA Lounge to see the equally legendary local heroes Swingin’ Utters perform to friends, family, and fans alike. DNA is one of those no-frills venues, and was perfect for the sound of the night, with punk and grit in the air, but just enough of the melodic and catch to get you dancing and singing along.

In normal fashion, I missed the majority openers One Less Zero‘s set, which features Sara Wright on vocals (wife of Green Day drummer Tre Cool) and plays a classic punk sound reminiscent of a slightly softer Vice Squad with a pronounced West Coast tinge. You can have a listen to some of their tracks here.

Next up was San Diego’s female-fronted Bombpops, and a great follow-up to One Less Zero. Don’t let the pretty faces fool you here, these girls are tough as nails, and they rip through their set with a great balance of ripping guitar and bass, driving drums, and lyrics that make you think, but not too hard.

For me, the highlight of the show was Success‘ set. It was my first time seeing the Washington quintet, and they embody everything I love about punk. Rough around the edges, political, emotional, catchy at times, with the perfect amount of breaks, jumps, and woahs. At one point during the set, an incredibly inebriated fan fell and knocked his head on the bottom of the stage, and as fellow fans came to his aide the oaf-like drunk began swinging on his helpers until frontman Aaron Peters jumped off stage to help the fans and calm things down while security arrived and secured the scene. Rev was back on stage to the round of applause from the house, excited to pick up where we left off. Class act from a great band. The set ended with a sing-along of “Where Is The Revolution”, getting the venue nice and warm and energetic for headliners Swingin’ Utters.

I am lucky enough to be able to live in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area (SF proper to be exact), and am afforded so many opportunities to see so many incredible bands. Among these is Swingin’ Utters, who always rock the house and leave the crowd yearning for more. I most recently saw the band at the Fat Wreck 25th shows back in late August, so I was ripe for another Utters show. The set seemed to focus on some of the band’s faster, ‘rougher’ songs, one of which is “Five Lessons Learned”, which I can never not throw my hands in the air and get those legs moving. The rest of the night was filled with dancing, singing along, and getting rowdy – thanks to the help of some trusty friends to watch the camera gear. The show seemed to end way too soon, and as the venue emptied out, there was a feeling that the energy may spill out onto the streets…and it did.

Have a look at the night’s photos below.

Big thanks to Barry, Doc, Chelsea and Steph, and all the local friends that continue to make shows so incredible.

Leftover Crack stream new song “Bedbugs and Beyond”

Anarcho punks Leftover Crack are streaming another new song off their upcoming album Constructs Of The State. It’s called “Bedbugs and Beyond” and you can give it a listen here.

Constructs Of The State will be released November 27th via Fat Wreck Chords. You can pre-order the album here.

Leftover Crack last released Fuck World Trade in 2004 via Alternative Tentacles.

Joey Cape’s Daytrotter session available for streaming

As the title would lead you to believe, Joey Cape‘s Daytrotter session is now available to stream here.

Cape’s session, titled The Rest Of Us Will Be Here Breathin’, features a little bit of everything from the Caper. It starts with the song “Moral Compass,” off his latest solo release, Stitch Puppy. Then it goes to an acoustic version of the Lagwagon song, “I Must Be Hateful,” off the band’s Blaze album. Then it’s a newer song, “Reign,” off Lagwagon’s latest album, Hang (for Daytrotter members only).

The session was recorded at San Francisco’s Studio Paradiso. Along with the music, there’s also a fun little illustration, which you can see to the left, done by Johnnie Cluney.

Joey Cape, as I just mentioned, last released his solo album, Stitch Puppy, on Fat Wreck Chords in September. You can buy a copy of that one here.

Video: Joey Cape does acoustic version of “Burden Of Proof / Reign”

I swear Joey Cape just can’t seem to do wrong these days. I’m a sucker for his solo stuff, especially acoustic covers of Lagwagon songs and its seems that doesn’t just apply to the oldie but goodies. In this recently filmed “Trundle Session” a rather inebriated Capester absolutely crushes an acoustic version of “Burden Of Proof / Reign”, the opening tracks of Lagwagon’s 2014 comeback album “Hang.” Check it out below and tell me I’m wrong.

Joey Cape released Stitch Puppy, his first solo album in nearly 5 years, in September through Fat Wreck Chords.

DS Photo Gallery: Subhumans, La Plebe at Metro, Oakland (10.23.15)

Night two of the Subhumans in the Bay Area took place at the ol Metro Operahouse in Oakland. But don’t pay attention to the venue name – no opera here tonight, just pure punk rock (and a little horns). I would come to realize that night one paled in comparison to the second night, for many reasons – one being the amazing La Plebe de San Pancho (aka La Plebe).

First to the stage was Oakland-based Love Songs who play a classic style of punk rock with a blend of gang anthems, melodic vocals, ripping guitar, and a bit of the macabre. I had just arrived as the guys took to the stage, and made my rounds to say hi to all friends and acquaintances. Camera stayed in the bag for this set, in preparation for the debauchery of La Plebe. Love Songs has just finished recording a new album, so be sure to stay tuned for more updates as they become available. The band is also contributing tracks to the “Dookie Tribute Records”, which is set to be released in the following months.

I’ve seen La Plebe more times than I can count on my hands, however it still seems like not enough. I absolutely love these guys. From the first chord til the last trumpet blare, these guys deliver non-stop energy, fast-paced action, and leave fans sweaty, bruised, and out of breath. The band mixes traditional punk chords with cantina-style horns, switching from English and Spanish vocals, often times within the same song. “Guerra Sucia” is one of my all-time favorites which appeared on the setlist, as well as “Siempre Unidos”, “Pinches Fronteras”, and “Bella Ciao” which always gets the crowd going nuts. There literally is not a song from their discography that I don’t love.

I hadn’t dispensed all my energy quite yet, and was excited to enjoy the Subhumans in a much larger venue than Thee Parkside the night before. The band played much of the same set, but with a little more time on stage, the band mixed it up a little bit. “Internal Riot”, “Supermarket Forces”, “Peroxide”, “It’s Gonna Get Worse” saw the light of day alongside the classics “No”, “Religious Wars”, and more by which we have come to love the Subhumans. I wish there was more people that knew how to dance to this music, instead of just jumping and running around like little kids. Oh well, times have changed. One thing that has remained constant? – Dick Lucas’ amazing stage presence and quintessential vocals. I would love to see a final album from the Brits before they head into retirement.

Have a look at La Plebe and Subhumans’ photos below.

Thanks to Alberto, Mark, Jason, Vanessa, and all my local mates that made this an incredible show.
