DS Photo Gallery: Old Firm Casuals, Suede Razors, Roadside Bombs at The Night Light, Oakland (1.30.16)

This past Saturday I nearly missed an incredible show featuring local favorites Old Firm Casuals, Suede Razors, and Roadside Bombs. I was supposed to work, and once I got the night off I found it terribly difficult to find tickets to the sold-out event. Alas, a ticket materialized and I headed across the Bay Bridge to the sauna that is The Night Light. If the previous week’s show’s theme was youthful energy, this show’s theme was ‘old punks’. Indeed, all the bands have been around in the scene for quite awhile, and at 30, I found myself as one of the younger attendees.

Roadside Bombs opened the night in classic fashion with some great sounds of the street. The band is punk-driven, but definitely has a melodic side that shines through. There’s plenty of opportunities to sing along with some gang vocals too, especially with songs like “Not Everybody Knows a Good Thing”, “My Side Of Town”, “Tax Revolution”, “Bring ‘Em Home”, and more just to name a few. Definitely the perfect fit for the lineup, and a great opener for the night. The band most recently released “My Side Of Town” back in 2014, which you can listen to here.

Things got a little more intense as Darrel, Mike and crew took to the stage for Suede Razors, featuring members of Harrington Saints, Sydney Ducks, Hounds & Harlots, and more, these guys are no strangers to the scene. A Suede Razors show is like a trip to your local bar, singing along to pub songs with your mates – just with a punk/skinhead tinge to it. In fact, the intro to “Bovver Boys” sounds like something you would hear in an English pub after a soccer match. The band has really done well creating a unique sound that builds off all the guys’ collective experience. “Here She Comes” gets you off your barstool and maybe not dancing, but definitely nodding your head along to the beat. One of my favorites is “Longshot Kid”, which builds up and will have you throwing fists in the air by the end.

I don’t know what it is, but it has proven to be a challenge of entry for every band Lars is in. I hear he is a fan of dyingscene, however it seems our press requests always fall on deaf ears. Persistence and perseverance are the names of the game, and I managed to be up front and center as Old Firm Casuals took the stage. I’ve seen the band several times over the years, and it amazes me that photos from their set at The Blank Club nearly 6 years ago still remain at the top of Google image searches. It’s great to see Lars’ voice shine through in a new light outside of the Rancid sound we’ve all become accustomed to. He’s got the perfect amount of grit and melody – no frills vocals at its best. It was definitely a treat to see “Skinhead” performed live, among other favorites.

You can view set photos below.

Huge thanks to Ian, Ben, Darrel, Skip, and Chelsea for helping out, and cheers to all the Pirates and Chapter 11 crew! It’s always great seeing you all.



DS Photo Gallery: The Workin’ Stiffs, Suede Razors, Custom Fit at Thee Parkside SF

I roll out of bed last Friday still feeling crusty from the Leftover Crack show the night before. No time to rest, as tonight is to be a party of local street punk. Custom Fit, Suede Razors, and The Workin’ Stiffs were to share the stage at the sweaty ol’ Parkside. La Plebe was originally scheduled to headline the event, however due to some personal issues, they cancelled their performance a week or so before the event. While that may have dissuaded the Plebeians, there were still three amazing bands playing, so I was sure to be there.

I have seen all three bands several times, and it’s always a reunion of sorts with familiar faces and of course many Pirates cameos. Santa Cruz, CA’s Custom Fit was first to the stage and lead singer Sabi never disappoints. Her voice is amazing! Such a refreshing sound to the scene, and holds true to that traditional street punk attitude. The stand-out moment during their set was when they played “Combat” off their 2013 untitled 12″. I was in the bathroom when the song started and I had to bolt out to catch the first kick. You can listen to “Combat” here.

Following Custom Fit was East Bay band Suede Razors. Comprised of members from bands such as Harrington Saints, Sydney Ducks, The Bootboys, and Hounds & Harlots, these guys are no strangers to the scene. Their sound is a mix of classic streetpunk/Oi! mixed with a little pub rock/hooliganism and ’60’s-’70’s guitar riffs. Another one of those ill timed moments was at the bar ordering a drink when the band began to play their new song “Passion on the Pitch”, which is coming out on 7″ next month. I had to get on the floor and throw some fists and claps! You can check out a preview of the upcoming track here.

Rounding out the night was San Francisco’s own The Workin’ Stiffs. Like a siren call, guitarist Novak started the set off quite properly, wasting no time getting the crowd moving from literally the first chord. Close your eyes and you’re transported to this era of ’80’s angst. Sharp-ass guitar riffs, driving beats, and gritty, emotionally charged vocals are what has given this band it’s staying power. The only down time you have to catch your breath is when the band stalls because they, “only have so many songs and we have to fill time!” Truth be told, the guys have been around since the mid ’90’s, and despite several hiatuses over the years, has released a plethora of music, and throughout the night sampled from a large portion of their catalog, primarily ‘the old stuff’.

You can have a look at all of the shots from the night’s sets below.
