Another Friday night, another couple of bands, another couple of beers…not so this week! Again, I found my feet scurrying to Café Nela for the Gears documentary, “Don’t Be Afraid to Pogo,” presented by Chris Ashford for the sole entertainment of the Glassel/Cypress Park local crowd and a few others that made the trek from farther distances. It was nice to see my favorite local band friends larger than life on the big screen, or should I say the large, white back wall of the C
Vice Squad! I was fit to be tied after seeing the lovely Becky Bondage on stage performing. Easy to become addicted to this band. Their fun spirit comes through in their music. Check out Vice Squad! www.vicesquad.co.uk
Drongos For Europe aren’t dim in the least! One of my faves at Rebellion Fest this year. Fast, furious. This talented group is sharp witted. Their songs politically fueled about issues today. The imagery in their videos pertinent to our times. They’ve got something to say. Anthems to those who buck the system. Stay tuned for PNX News feature!

A punk rock Woodstock. The unity spirit and comr
Bastards On Parade a very talented 6 piece band out of Galicia Spain, including accordion and bagpipe player.

Singing mostly in English, but with a hint and flavor of Galician folk music, that makes them unique. Do you think you can’t turn that into punk rock? Just imagine if Molly was Flogged by a gypsy and out came a Bastard, and that bastard began playing punk
The summer season of travel is upon us, and with it come the “band tours”. This past week Spike Polite and Sewage landed on the west coast for theirs. First to San Diego for a record release party, then Los Angeles, and finally on to Las Vegas before heading back home to NYC. Luckily for me, Spike and I have been in contact via the “poke” button on Facebook for the past few months. He has “virtually” been my friend for some time now, and this past week we consummated (don’t
Okay, I hate to admit this but I was a Dickies virgin. Last Saturday evening at the Tiki Bar in Costa Mesa was the very first time that I had the pleasure of seeing the Dickies. And trust me, there is a legitimate reason for my deficiency. I grew up in Western PA, where the most us youngunz could expect was an occasional Michael Stanley Band or Donny Iris concert. That was it, unless you had the money, car, and older friend to drive you to Pittsburgh or Cleveland. We had no
