DS Photo Gallery: The Atom Age and Vicky & The Vengents at The Knockout SF 2.12.16

Last Friday I woke to a Facebook notification about a show at a local bar The Knockout here in San Francisco, featuring Bay Area favorites The Atom Age, Vicky & The Vengents, and The Krypters. The Teenage Dance Craze night began with help from local DJs Russell Quan, Okie Oran, and dX The Funky Granpaw, however I had my own little spinning party getting ready for the show, so I didn’t roll up until just at the end of the The Krypters’ set.

Vicky & The Vengents are a new one for me, and vocalist/frontwoman Vicky Tafoya commands control of the stage, bellowing out powerful lyrics with a little ‘Amy Winehouse’ style. The band bills themselves as “psychedelic maltshop punk/pop/ rock n’ roll…qith a love for all thangs dramatic, melodic, and loud, the girl-groups, guitars, grease and garage are all in the blender”. You can have a listen to the title track of their most recent release “You Used To Be My Baby” here.

I had most recently seen The Atom Age a couple weeks ago as they opened the stage for Agent Orange at DNA Lounge. Tonight they were headliners, and the openers did quite well to warm the crowd. Although, the band’s music does well enough on it’s own to get the coldest of crowds moving. In case you are unfamiliar with The Atom Age, the band has spent the last several years edging out an un-tapped niche in the punk sound, featuring strong saxophone, organ/keyboard, and guitar riffs that evoke a space-age, rocky, cosmic world where everyone is dressed in their dancehall best and dances til the last chord.

You can have a look at photos from The Atom Age and Vicky & The Vengents’ set below.

Big thanks to Peter, Ryan, Brandon, and the whole Atom Age crew, as well as the guys at Knockout for a good night of rock and dance. And sorry to Jello for disturbing you with my flash.

New Episode of Dying Scene Radio! Back after hiatus with new time/format. Interview with Fraser Murderburger about recording with Masked Intruder. Also, Mike Beer of Sparklefight.

This week on Dying Scene RadioBob Noxious and Bobby Pickles are finally back after nearly a month long hiatus! There’s been a mini format change, plus new episodes are posting each and every Monday morning. Get yourself a recap of last week’s new music and headlines, brought to you by the Bobs. On this week’s episode, Bobby talks about his travels to Floriduhh where he gets too drunk to record a DSR podcast episode with Bob in-person. Bobby asks Bob if he’s ever seen the iconic 80’s punk movie, Dudes (1987), directed by Penelope Spheeris; Bob mentions that he and the acclaimed Decline of Western Civilization director are Facebook friends. Bobby asks Bob if he ever likes bands’ Facebook pages, prior to listening to any of their music, simply based on their ridiculous name. Bob thinks new NOFX music is not newsworthy because they’re always dropping new music. Bobby informs Bob that Fat Wreck Chords has only existed for 24 years and nobody checked to verify dates – everyone just bought the 25 year anniversary marketing ploy. Bobby gives 45 Adapters frontman Pickabar a FAT ENZO BB Allin t-shirt at the 2015 Long Island Punk Rock BBQ. Bill stevenson declares Propagandhi the best band ever. Bob declares that Fletcher Dragge is a name nazi. Bobby interviews Fraser Murderburger about doing a pre-order in lieu of a crowdfunding campaign, recording with Masked Intruder, Matt Allison (Atlas Studios), and having a million different drummers involved with The Murderburgers’ line-up during the band’s existence. Bobby says Bob should go join The Murderburgers too  – since his band, PigPen, dawns masks just like the Masked Intruder fellas. Bob says he won’t be wearing a mask in his next band because it’s too hot. Bob talks about attending Underoath’s high school in Tampa, FL. Bobby accuses Bob of “lazy thievery” – not wanting to steal the new Epitaph sampler via one-track on youtube. Bob “drops the mic” on Bobby, then reads two weird definitions of the newly accepted pop culture phrase; the alternative definition of which brings this week’s episode rating from R to X for vulgarity. Bobby declares, “Darkbuster must be a great name to hear uttered in the Boston accent!” Then, Bob attempts a Boston accent but sounds more like Vinnie Barbarino from Welcome Back, Kotter. While discussing Iron Reagan’s (Bobby mispronounces name) new craft beer flavor by Stragtimes Brewery, Bob tells Bobby the tale of PigPen’s Stale Ale and Swine Wine. Bob realizes that he could never go solo because he would have to rival the Bobnoxious band of Canada. Bob wonder why contests are so difficult these days, referencing New Found Glory’s music video contest, Bob says to win you have to be multi-talented. DSR could be the official podcast of FEST 14 in Gainesville – so stay tuned for that. Bob discusses his “hipster neighborhood” and having not mowed his lawn since finding out his house is to be sold. Sparklefight in the news, so Bobby reaches out to Mike Beer about a commercial they made in jest nearly 4 years ago – there’s a Facebook protest group calling for the boycott of Connie’s Ric Rac because they say the video (which is pure schtick) supports rape culture. Mike argues their side of the story, explaining why they won’t take down the video – it’s the principality of the situation. New one-man band, Distorted Signals, lives in a van down by the river, and they/he/she also records their/his/her records in said van, as well. Episode 27’s recurring themes: name nazis and bad words, which start with the letter “C”.
