DS Photo Gallery: Fat Wrecked For 25 Years: SF Day Two – NOFX, Lagwagon, No Use & Friends, Good Riddance, Tilt, Darius Koski, Dead To Me, Flatliners, Masked Intruder, Uke Hunt

After day one of Fat Wreck Chords‘ 25th anniversary celebration in San Francisco, I hightailed it home to get changed and proper for the screening of the “A Fat Wreck” documentary at the Roxie Theatre (review coming soon). Meanwhile, back at Thee Parkside, a full-fledged after party was underway with all the bands and VIPs of the weekend. By the time the movie got out I was so wiped from a day of shooting, drinking, and dancing, that I went home and prepared my gear for day two.

Day two’s opening act was just as well-thought out as day one’s. Uke Hunt began the day with lighthearted strums on the ukulele, a little saw violin, and maracas, and various other fun instruments. The local ‘supergroup’ is always a crowd favorite, and despite it being before 1 in the afternoon, the turnout was great. I always love what Spike and co. come up with, the banter and humor, as well as the random songs they cover to fan’s delight.

Better get stretching though, because the in-your-face pop punk quartet Masked Intruder was next to the stage. I always post up by Intruder Green because I’m certain to get some wild jump shots, and this performance was no different. I was pleased and surprised to see Officer Bradford actually get down during the set…skanking on stage before jumping into the pit and causing a raucous. Fans joined in and before you knew it there was a huge circle pit! Before some fans had even finished their first beer.

The crowd was able to catch their breath when The Flatliners began to play. I have been a fan of these guys for awhile, and I am usually pretty damn impressed by these guys, but for some reason this set just fell short. However, Erin Burkett was a huge fan and even found her way to the photo pit to snag some shots of the Canadians ripping it up. It could also be, that I was hungry and thirsty and spent the majority of their set finding refreshments. Sorry Chris!

That is in contrast to local heroes Dead To Me, which was one of my favorite sets of the day. There was this excitement and beautiful energy that surrounded the guys that made it really a treat to see. And to be able to see Jack Dalrymple perform three times in two days, priceless!

There was definite anticipation over the entire weekend for Tilt to perform. To my knowledge, this is the first time the band has played reunited since 2001. Everyone was super excited to see what Cinder and co. would bring to the stage and they did not disappoint. I’ve always been a sucker for female-fronted punk bands, they just bring a unique and different sound that is so refreshing in the male-dominated arena of punk rock. I don’t know if Cindy thought I was trying to shoot up her skirt (which I wasn’t!), but she ended up giving me and fans alike a little show.

At this point the sun is in all its blaring glory, beating down on the dehydrated punks like a ton of bricks. Just in time for Good Riddance to start playing and get us all a sweaty mess. I was able to do much more dancing during day two, and Good Riddance. is one of those bands that gets the legs moving.

At some point I wandered into Thee Parkside just as Darius Koski (of Swingin’ Utters/Filthy Thieving Bastards) was beginning his acoustic set. It was the proper break I very much needed away from the sun. He plays a great blend of rock, blues, country, and soul with such passion – such a talented musician.

Back outside for a little memorial set with members of No Use For A Name, Old Man Markley, NOFX, and many more gracing the stage to pay tribute to Tony Sly and all the beautiful music he made.

Lagwagon is the natural progression after No Use and before NOFX, and Joey Cape once again showed the world why Lagwagon has been around for 20+ years. Simply put – they rock. Great stage presence, amazing guitar riffs, thoughtful lyrics, stinging vocals…the band has it all. I believe during a crowd surfing session, this is where my leg got injured, as I wasn’t able to walk right after that. Well deserved injury during a great set by one of my favorite bands.

With no further ado, the final act of the weekend….NOFX. The band has this glitter in their eyes, like pure joy when they take to the stage, and it is definitely felt by the fans. Thankfully, day two Fat Mike decided to wear shorts instead of a kilt, so no ball shots.

Have a look at photos from all of the day’s performance below, and stay tuned for a review of “A Fat Wreck” in the following days.

***Big thanks to Vanessa, Jason, Amanda, Audrey, all the staff at Thee Parkside, and everyone else that made this weekend an incredible celebration of being wrecked for 25 years!***

DS Show Review & Photo Gallery: Good Riddance, A Wilhelm Scream, & Bad Cop/Bad Cop at the Troubadour (West Hollywood, 4-16-15)

As many of you are aware, Good Riddance just released their first album in 9 years, titled Peace In Our Time. Over the next couple of months, the band has a string of record release shows on the West Coast and I was fortunate enough to catch the Los Angeles date at the Troubadour.

Seeing Good Riddance at their record release show already makes for an exciting evening, but add amazing opening acts to the bill and you have an unforgettable night. For this first set of record release shows, A Wilhelm Scream and Bad Cop/Bad Cop opened the show, along with Spanish Love Songs on the LA date.

I arrived right as Spanish Love Songs finished up their set, but I liked what I heard. The excitement was palpable as the sold out crowd started to fill up the venue. Up next was one of my new favorite bands, Bad Cop/Bad Cop. They ripped through their set, showcasing some of the new songs off their upcoming debut full length, Not Sorry (out June 16th on Fat Wreck – mark your calendars!). If these songs are any indication, I can already guarantee you that Not Sorry will be on my “best of 2015” list at the end of the year.

Next up was A Wilhelm Scream. I felt like this was a “full circle” moment – I first saw them play my college over 10 years ago, and now I was seeing them on stage at the Troubadour. This band knows how to put on a live show. They brought tons of energy to the stage and the crowd went wild. I was lucky enough to snap a few photos before ducking out of the front of the crowd as people pumped their fists in the air and cheered.

Finally, it was time for the main event. Good Riddance took the stage to power through a 20+ song set, including crowd favorites (such as “United Cigar,” “Weight Of The World,” and “Fertile Fields”) and new tracks off of Peace In Our Time. This new album, out on Fat Wreck, is also a contender for my “best of 2015” list. Even though it’s been 9 years since the last album, some things never change – the band is still as political, powerful, and engaging as always. The sold out crowd was grinning from ear to ear as they sang along with every word. Good Riddance is an amazing band to see live; each song is played with such precision and passion and they inject an energy into the audience. If you have a chance to catch one of their upcoming shows, make sure to get your tickets early and get there to check out the opening acts. As far as the music, here’s to hoping we don’t have to wait until 9 years for the next GR album!
