Mischief Brew release more details about their upcoming album “This Is Not For Children”

Philly folk punk outfit Mischief Brew have released more details about their upcoming album, This Is Not For Children.

The album is slated for release sometime in May 2015 via legendary punk rock music label Alternative Tentacles Records.

On the upcoming release, frontman Erik Petersen commented:

This Is Not For Children is more home-based, using Philly and the state of PA as the backdrop, a running theme throughout. This record hunkers down at the South Philly dive bar around the corner from the practice space and shares stories of home, deaths of friends, gentrification, squatting, coal mining, baseball, working, drinking, and horror movies… yet we think any person in any city will relate to it. It’s also simpler in instrumentation: less chaotic ornamentation, not as much clanging and banging. No banjos, more punk, less “Gypsy”… if you will.

Check out the artwork above and head over here to check out their last EP, O, Pennsyltucky!, and see the video for the title track, which will also be featured on the new album.



DS Photo Gallery: Leftover Crack, Blackbird Raum, Union 13, Juicy Karkass at Thee Parkside SF

If the theme of the first week of February’s concerts was ska, then the name of game last week was punk – of the crust and street variety.

First band to the stage to start off the week was Juicy Karkass. The ‘punk/hip hop’ group played an interesting blend of rap, country, southern rock, and ‘punk’. The crowd was still wetting their whistle, but the band managed to garner quite the crowd.

Union 13 is one of those band’s that never gets old, and they seem to never tire on stage. This was my first time seeing the punk quartet, and they were everything I had dreamed of all these years. Energetic, hard riffs, and fast lyrics are what have made this band a benchmark in the LA punk scene.

Blackbird Raum is part of this new-ish wave of anarchist/folk/punk bands kind of spearheaded in their hometown of Santa Cruz, CA. The band has a relatively tumultuous past, and is still having some lineup issues, but you would never know. I love this type of music and so did Thee Parkside, barely allowing the band to hold the stage as fists and boots were flying.

The climax of the night’s performances centered around the NYC crust-punk band Leftover Crack, who was smack dab in the middle of their West Coast tour stint. It’s such a treat to see that, despite a few more gray hairs, the guys are just as raucous and rambunctious as ever. Many of the tracks performed have since formed into a blur, but “Gang Control” is always one of my favorites.

You can check out all of the photos from the night’s debauchery below.
