DS Photo Gallery: Teenage Bottlerocket, Lipstick Homicide, Rational Anthem, The Blendours in Des Moines, Iowa

Iowa isn’t exactly a “hotbed” of punk music, but still, some of my favorite punk bands hail from the Hawkeye State (quality over quantity, right?).

In March, some of the best bands Iowa has to offer came together for a show on a Wednesday night at a little bar in Des Moines. Oh yeah, they also let some band from Wyoming play a few songs. Check out my gallery from Teenage Bottlerocket, Lipstick Homicide, Rational Anthem, and The Blendours, at the Gas Lamp on March 18th, below.

The show opened with the catchy-as-shit acoustic power-pop/pop-punk stylings of The Blendours. I’ve been getting their songs stuck in my head almost weekly for the past few years, but this was my first chance to catch them live. It was a surprising treat to see former band member Bre jump up on stage and sing a few songs with the boys. Their latest album (along with about a billion other songs) is available on their Bandcamp page, right here.

Rational Anthem left Florida to come to Iowa. I don’t know what they were thinking, but I’m glad they did it. I’ve seen them two or three times now, and it seems each time is better than the previous. They put out a pretty sweet album last year on Bloated Kat Records, called Emotionally Unavailable. Get that, and/or their two previous full-lengths on vinyl here.

I’ve seen Lipstick Homicide probably 10+ times in the last two years, and I have yet to be disappointed by a performance. Not only is the music fast and catchy, but they always seem to be having so much fun and truly enjoying playing, and the crowd can definitely feel that. Not to mention the band members always seem to be right up front when the other bands are playing, and it’s always cool to see that support. Their latest full-length, 2013’s Out Utero, is available on Bloated Kat Records, and it’s one of my favorite albums from the past few years. I still listen to at least part of it almost every day. You should do the same, and you can make that happen by getting it here.

Teenage Bottlerocket are one of my all-time top 10 favorite bands. They always put on a kick-ass live show, and this time was no different. High energy, a few stupid jokes, and a lot of fast fun. This show was just before they put out their new album, Tales From Wyoming, on Rise Records. Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy here.
