DS Show Review & Gallery: Cardiel, Ladrones, Cut-rate Druggist (The Ivy Room, Albany, CA 7/5/23)

Mexican skaterock/fuzzpunkers Cardiel are on tour with Atlanta-based Puerto Rican garage punkers Ladrones. At their Bay Area stop in Albany, Oakland duo Cut-rate Druggist opened. We were there.

Oakland, CA’s Cut-rate Druggist are a two-piece, bass and drums, with bassist/singer Squeaky playing her Fender like a distorted lead guitar and wailing. They have an upcoming single in August on Australian label Fantastic Mess Records and kicking off a 9-date Pacific Northwest tour on July 20th.

Ladrones hail from Puerto Rico, though are now based in Atlanta, GA. This was a high-energy set of garage-y punk and possible the best thing we’ve seen this year.

Drummer Samantha Ambrosio and guitarist Miguel Fraíno of Cardiel are originally from Valencia, Venezuela but formed the band in Mexico City in 2010. This is a fun mix of skate rock, punk and dub.
