As promised in our feature on a recent Motoblot 2018 participating band, Mystery Actions, we present to you today a full photo gallery of some highlights from the weekend. If you’re not familiar with Motoblot, allow us to fill you in. Now in its fifth year, Motoblot is an annual vintage motorcycle and hot rod street rally that takes place at Chicago’s Cobra Lounge/All Rise Brewing. Hot rods and motorcycles might be the focal point of the weekend, but music is an ever-present force.
Dying Scene had our Doc Martens on the ground all weekend and captured photos of blistering performances from the likes of Supersuckers, The Legendary Shack Shakers, Mothership, Rotten Finko and the Convicts, Mystery Action, Hot Rod Walt and the Psycho-DeVilles, Wreckin’ Ball, and, of course, Nuns Of Brixton (the only Clash cover band that matters). Head below to check out our full photo gallery!
***Editor’s note: Hi gang, Jay Stone here. Meredith and I had been working through some technical glitches over the last few days to try to get these photos up. We got things (we think) buttoned up and had the post that you see here scheduled to run. And then came Wednesday morning’s news about Johnny Wilson, pictured above. For whatever dopey reason, I’d been out of the loop and and it didn’t quite click to me that he’d been playing drums in Nuns Of Brixton. Johnny meant a lot of a lot of people that he crossed paths with in this weird little scene of ours; sincerest condolences go out to all of his family and friends and bandmates.***
