DS Photo Gallery: The Briggs at Punk Rock Bowling

Saturday marked the official start to Punk Rock Bowling, and after a late, drunken Friday night, there was nothing more I could look forward to than trying to bowl. The day began at about 10:30am, as I dragged myself to the shuttle area, where I, along with my esteemed DS cohorts, would be whisked away to the Gold Coast Casino. I vowed that this year, I would pace myself and not get completely obliterated before bowling even ended. This vow was deemed futile when the guys from Stabbed In Back offered me a grain alcohol shooter of some sort.

Anyway, long story short, we bowled our hearts out but fell just short…of last place. After a little liquid therapy to ease the pain of defeat, I headed inside the festival just in time to catch The Briggs.

The festival began at 3:30 with The Dirty Panties, followed by Tartar Control, Revilers, and CH3 (who I’m bummed I didn’t get to see). Head here to view shots from The Briggs’ set, and check back tomorrow for Swingin’ Utters!



Punk Aid unveils cover art and band list for massive “Boston Strong” compilation

It’s not secret that the support pouring in to the Boston area in the wake of the Marathon Monday bombing and the related lockdown of much of the metropolitan area has been staggering. The punk community, as to be expected, has picked up the “Boston Strong” rallying cry in fine fashion (note stories that we’ve already brought you on benefit efforts by Dropkick Murphys, Man Overboard and The Gaslight Anthem, among others). Today, we’ve got news of a massive benefit compilation being planned.

Details surrounding “Punk Aid: Boston Strong” are still emerging, but we can point out that the cover art has been confirmed (see above in all its awesomeness). While the total band roster and tracklist have not been finalized, we can tell you that there are 80 (yes…80!) bands confirmed. At present, the roster includes a handful of Boston-area bands like the Pinkerton Thugs and The Unseen, as well as bands like Evacuate, Government Issue, The Briggs, The Adicts and more from across the rest of the US and, frankly, the world; I think I lost count around a dozen countries represented. Click here for the full rundown as of this writing, and remember to check back for updates before the final list is announced.

“Punk Aid: Boston Strong,” like it’s “Aceh Calling” predecessor, will be available for download in June for $6. All proceeds will benefit TUGG, a charity put together by the large Boston technology community.

Jason Briggs releases statement regarding German venue collective’s beef with Scientology

Jason Briggs has released a statement in response to recent events involving a German promoter and venue refusing to back the The Briggs‘ upcoming German/Austrian tour due to Joey Briggs’ ties with Scientology.

Here’s what Jason had to say about the whole ordeal:
With regard to Ox’s decision to vehemently violate our religious and human rights (can you say “attempted” semantic rape?):

Evidently, prejudice and persecution are very alive and extremely well today. To witness the existence of such imbecilic ridicule and uninformed judgment in times of alleged awareness is quite nearly unthinkable. Alas, such is the case.

Open wide all ye robots and prepare to be spoon-fed yet an additional helping of utter lies and ignorant propaganda from the “powers that be,” be they press, politicians, parents or just plain ol’ assholes. We’d like to encourage you to think twice about what you read; we believe there is yet a speck of humanity in this seemingly ever-declining human race. And we have faith that our fans and fellow artists are among those intelligent enough to see past the wool that’s being forced upon their eyes.

Our stance, for the record: We support and encourage tolerance for all. That said, our sentiments to Ox, ELW and all of the pathetic pawns involved: Thank you for another load of inspirational writing fodder. It may very well come in handy for our next record.

Peace and love,
The Briggs
