I can’t believe no one has written about how fucking killer last weekend was! Sure, I have been to bigger fests with more people, and ones with higher profile bands, but those 5 days were all about the fucking Bay, and it totally ruled! Much respect to the folks at Thrillhouse and the hapless shitworkers who busted ass to set up nearly a dozen shows at venues and locations all over the City.
Friday night at Thee Parkside, the only night that leaned heavily on out of town bands, was fucking scorching! Full disclosure, my band played as well, but there can be no doubt that LA/Chicago band DESCARADOS brought the house down, while LA bands SEND THE DOGS and RAYOS X and PDX punks ADELITAS blew everyone’s minds! Of course, the Bay Area’s N.N. did not disappoint either. But what did disappoint loads of punks in attendance? LA Raw Ponx TUBERCULOSIS were not able to play the show. As a consolation to those in attendance, and a taste of the night for those not lucky enough to make it to SF last weekend, here’s the TUBERCULOSIS demo for your listening pleasure…and up the punks.
