DS Photo Gallery and Show Review: The Vandals’ 20th Annual Christmas Formal (12.19.15 in Anaheim, CA)

Ah, December. Many people look forward to the holiday season (or the new year) for a variety of reasons, but for me it’s all about The Vandals‘ Christmas Formal. This year was the 20th anniversary of my favorite holiday tradition, held as usual at the House of Blues Anaheim. As a special treat, a recently reunited most-of-the-original-lineup Tsunami Bomb and Danger Friends opened the show. This Kung Fu Records showcase was truly a memorable night!

Due to the unfortunate combination of LA traffic and rain, we missed getting to the venue in time to see Danger Friends, but the packed house was already there to enjoy an epic night of punk rock. Tsunami Bomb, who recently announced that Kung Fu will be putting out their new rarities album Trust No One in early 2016, tore through their setlist with energy and enthusiasm. Four of the original members were joined by a new vocalist, Kate Jacobi, and the crowd greeted them with open arms as the band played a mixture of old sing alongs and tracks off the upcoming album.

Finally it was time for the main event! The Vandals, joined by Brooks Wackerman on drums in place of Josh Freese, emerged onto the stage in fez hats and Star Trek shirts. The stage was adorned with inflatable decorations, a large banner mimicking a fireplace, foam snowflakes, and wrapped presents. As an added bonus this year, fake snow rained down on the stage and those fans (and photographers) in the front. Dave, Joe, Warren, and Brooks mixed up the order of their Christmas classics, tearing through 90% of the songs on Oi To The World during the first half of the show. Before closing out the night in their traditional fashion (“Hang Myself From The Tree,” “Don’t Stop Me Now,” and “Oi To The World”), the band played a mix of their well known tracks from the non-holiday albums. Fans were treated to “I’ve Got An Ape Drape,” “Anarchy Burger,” “The New You,” and “My Girlfriend’s Dead,” among others. In a rare moment, the band also performed “Pirate’s Life” as a nod to the venue’s location in Downtown Disneyland.

As always, the (20th annual) Christmas Formal was an incredible night of entertainment, celebration, and holiday cheer. It always goes by so quickly, but I can’t wait to see what they do next year! Check out the full photo gallery from the show below.

DS Interview: Versus The World on new album “Homesick/Roadsick” and the perils of maintaining ‘supergroup’ status

The internet, including Wikipedia (which we are STILL banned from), will tell you that supergroups never work out. However, that fact falters in the face of Versus The World. Featuring members of the Ataris and Lagwagon, the California act churns out melodic anthems and serves as a reminder that heavy songs can still sound fun. The band exemplifies this in their third studio effort Homesick/Roadsick, a sucker-punch of an album that gets catchier with every listen. We were able to catch up with frontman Donald Spence before he embarks on an extensive European tour with the rest of our crew.

You can read the full interview below.

Homesick/Roadsick was released today, June 23rd, through their original home Kung Fu Records, and it can be purchased here. It serves as the follow-up to 2012’s amazing Drink. Sing. Live. Love through through Viking Funeral Records.



Biffers release new EP “Frankie Road”

Today, Italian pop-punk act Biffers have released a new EP titled Frankie Road. It was released digitally though Kung Fu Records, and will be released on vinyl (in three different variations) through Greenway Records. Check out the artwork to the left and the tracklisting below.

Kung Fu Records owner (and Vandal) Joe Escalante on the band : “They posted an amazing song right on our (Facebook) page.  They made it very easy for us. The Biffers are one of those bands, like the Ramones, wiht the ability to break down a genre, and build it back up again with an innocence and simplicity that was somehow lost along the way as others in the field have taken punk rock for granted. The result is a happy re-interpretation of punk rock where each song hits you like a shot of Galliano, which by no coincidence is distilled and bottled in The Biffers hometown.”

Frankie Road was released today, June 9, and serves as a follow-up to their 2013 debut album Whoa! which was re-released last year through Kung Fu Records. Purchase the new EP digitally through iTunes or Amazon, or pre-order the vinyl here.
