Was anyone else at the Rancid/Dropkicks show in August?  I was...and it was awesome.  The encore was both bands...played Ring of Fire by Cash and White Riot by The Clash.

 

Which brings me to this: 

 

so jealous. I knew that show would be great.

No question, top 3 $&!#faced I've ever been was a a Me First show at Dick's on Dick's like 15 years ago. It was a day show, which wasn't uncommon, and the 5 of us out of a whole bar of punk rockers were labelled the Drunk Canadians by Fat Mike. Probably had something to do with the few flats of empties we accumulated on the stage. Good times, we were blasted.

Anybody remember the original Cobalt? Not the revamped country club it is now, but the Punk Rock Bingo Cobalt. "IIIIIIII SWILLIN" and you best be drinking or you get beer spat in your face. An old bud of mine took a dump in an alley after a night at the Cobalt. That's how good the place used to be. 

 

 

Hell yes. Loved that place.

 

Last time I was at the old cobalt I nearly got stomped by a dozen skinheads after a Hanson Brother's show. 

 

I went off on one of em, should've known they never roll alone. Self loathing a$$ f#####s probably set them off.

 

Thanks to the "D line" and a cabby we named "Jonny on the spot" I made it out unscathed. I apologize to anyone who took a lump for me that night. We were pulling out when the brawl started... Sorry. Probably my fault... But skinners can suck it.

Skinheads can suck it. Had some eventful nights at The Brickyard and Pub 340 as well. A buddy of mine was threatened with a gun in that last pub, and since then we call it Guns At The Table.

 

Classic.

at the end of the 70s the first round of "new wave " some of it still resembled punk  or could go down as being either. by 81  82 new wave with lots of varied sounds pushed punk to the side. these 3  good examples minus the angst....  punk morphing into  new wave..  looking back at it having lived thru it you had 3 choices  rock,   punk rock or god forbid ...disco . I know for the punk purist, theres not many left... when I first heard greenday 04  ya I know gd is a swear word I thought that's funny none of these guys are old enough to have heard original punk and then I thought theres a lot of musicians doing a lot of other genre's and doing it poorly .PUNK IS ALIVE...
