On this week’s show LAS OTRAS from Barcelona join Mariam to talk about tour, punk life and play some killer tunes!!!

Play

Intro song:
LAS OTRAS – Tragedia

</em><em>/ with a sample review and pics, and maybe you too can be a bona fide MRR web shitworker! Now, back to Will…</em></p> <p>Since this show was about three months ago, a lot of the nuances have melted out of my brain, that being said… I’m going to keep this short and sweet. The show was a surprisingly good show full of some bands you probably have never heard of. So here is what went down at Dregg’s Grotto on September 18th of 2010.</p> <p>[caption id="attachment_5596" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Rich Lombardi of Old Painless (Photo by Will Butler)"]<a rel="attachment wp-att-5596" href="http://www.maximumrocknroll.com/?attachment_id=5596"><img class="size-medium wp-image-5596 " src="http://www.maximumrocknroll.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/Butler_OP_Rich-300x450.jpg" alt="" width="300" height="450" /></a>[/caption]</p> <p>The first band to play is <strong>OLD PAINLESS</strong>. Their first show was the  night before when they played in GSO at Legtimate Business and opened for Nails.  Let me say, holy crap, what a second show! Rewind to a couple months ago, I’m friends with their drummer Rodney and we were at Chubby’s Tacos.. he was telling me about the new band he just started with Josh Dobey, Rich Lombardi (from Cloacal Kiss and The Sawtooth Grin), and Alex Taylor (from Stripmines). He dropped the word grindcore on me and my heart sank a little bit. I’m a fervent lover of grindcore, but any time I’ve heard that genre referenced in NC, it just means watered down Discordance Axis style music to the point it is just sped up metalcore. This was definitely not the case. Very technical grindy parts, lots of of super fast blasts (Rodney is a world class drummer), and I really enjoyed Rich’s stage presence.</p> <p>[caption id="attachment_5601" align="alignright" width="300" caption="Thomasina Mancini from Buy The Steak (Photo by Will Butler)"]<a rel="attachment wp-att-5601" href="http://www.maximumrocknroll.com/?attachment_id=5601"><img class="size-medium wp-image-5601" src="http://www.maximumrocknroll.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/Butler_BTS_Thomasina-300x200.jpg" alt="" width="300" height="200" /></a>[/caption]</p> <p>After Old Painless, <strong>BUY THE STEAK</strong> took the stage (well took the basement). I had just started to see these folks come out to shows so it was cool to see their band. Female front thrash metal from Garner North Carolina? Fun band, remembered thinking their guitar player, Logan Holloway, looked like an old man in the hat he was wearing. Unfortunately I think you can add this band to the list of short-lived defunct bands from the area.</p> <p>[caption id="attachment_5602" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Rodney from Thieves (Photo By Will Butler)"]<a rel="attachment wp-att-5602" href="http://www.maximumrocknroll.com/?attachment_id=5602"><img class="size-medium wp-image-5602" src="http://www.maximumrocknroll.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/Butler_Thieves_Rodney-300x200.jpg" alt="" width="300" height="200" /></a>[/caption]</p> <p>Next was an awesome surprise set by <strong>THIEVES</strong>, who wasn’t slated to play this show. I’m pretty sure this happened because my roommate kept chanting for them to play since all the guys happen to be at the show, so they borrowed equipment and played a raging quick set. Their bass player Ben loves to do quirky things at every show he plays… I remember him wearing a full 80’s workout getup, he wore a suit once, and I think once he wore a bear costume. Since it wasn’t scripted, I think he decided to sit down in the corner and played bass while sitting against the wall to add to his repertoire. On to how they sounded, they sounded awesome. Super fast and thrashy hardcore. Rodney (yeah the one who drums for Old Painless, sings for Thieves) got up in my face a lot while I was taking pictures. Thieves was definite <em>ON</em> this night.</p> <p>[caption id="attachment_5603" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Matt Needles of Chest Pain (Photo by Will Butler)"]<a rel="attachment wp-att-5603" href="http://www.maximumrocknroll.com/?attachment_id=5603"><img class="size-medium wp-image-5603" src="http://www.maximumrocknroll.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/Butler_CP_Matt2-300x450.jpg" alt="" width="300" height="450" /></a>[/caption]</p> <p>Last to play was <strong>CHEST PAIN</strong>. All I know is that they were a powerviolence band. That could mean a number of things to me… much like my thoughts on grindcore above, but I had high hopes because they are from Texas. I had corresponded with Matt from the band a few times but had somehow never heard them and couldn’t find any music online. I was very positively surprised… very visceral blasting powerviolence. Any band who has a shirtless singer with a gauntlet on is good by me. I also remember the guitar player bending backwards so much that he looked like has about to snap his back and Matt ended up chomping his bass strings at the very end.</p> <p>Quite a night for a show I didn’t know what to expect from.</p> " data-medium-file="" data-large-file="" class="alignnone size-large wp-image-5605" title="LasOtras_at_MRR" src="http://radio.maximumrocknroll.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/LasOtras_at_MRR-435x321.jpg" alt="" width="435" height="321" />
