Also a banger.
Also a banger.
Updated flyer for next week, Jackals instead of Face Crisis.
So we learn from history, Generations have to fight,
And those who crave for mastery,
Must be faced down on sight,
And if that means by words, by fists, by stones or by the gun,
Remember those who stood and fought for their daughters and their sons,
So listen to the sound of marching feet,
And the voices of the ghosts of Cable Street,
With fists and stones and batons and the gun,
With courage we shall beat those Blackshirts down.
It’s pretty ridiculous to think that people think that congratulating their mates on not being outright bigots is a reasonable response to the lurking fascism we’re seeing coming out from people who usually keep their mouths shut. But fuck the EDL, fuck all closet racists using what happened today as a political shield to openly demonise people.
you fucking tell him
I love AVB & Freund so much
Gas Rag is one of my favorite current Chicago bands.
This is also extremely relevant because this years RIOT FEST line up was just announced and like every other year it’s a pile of garbage with old washed up has bens trying to re-live the glory days or cash in. It is also a fest that has taken extreme action to stop DIY punk from “competing” with them. It’s bullshit. DIY for life. Gas Rag gets it
UGHH so relevent. We’re so spoiled, and I think it damages what I think would be a desire to fill a void. But there’s no void. We can now see most of the bands that may have given us fire at some point. Negative Approach needs to stop now. Flag (and for that matter, even Off!) can go home. Stay when you belong. It’s almost as much of a joke to see old man hardcore bands for $40 as it is to see celebrities dressed in “punk couture”.
i have a lot of feelings about this. if someone lives in a relatively hard to tour-in area, being able to travel to fests is a good way to see bands you like all at once. but if someone with relative easy access to local bands and shows skips them JUST to go to fests… it makes touring a lot harder when the attitude is “oh i’ll just see them at TIHC/riot fest/rain fest/etc. bands will play areas if they know people will show up. the economic system of touring is like a delicate ecosystem. fests can be fun and a great way to discover new bands but i think that going to local shows and supporting a scene is soooo important. i can’t really put a good sentence together right meow but yeah.(via burndownthekitchen)
This is spot on, Gas Rag are sick. Fuck off Hevy, Ghostfest, whatever other crappy energy drink festivals there are that I dont know about. DIY.
