MP3: Ruthie's Inn

So this past weekend was the Ruthie's Inn reunion show. Ruthie's was a club in Berkeley that hosted some killer punk and metal shows 1983 through 1987.

My pictures from the show are here.

Enjoy some of the bands that played on Saturday:

No Alternative - Johnny's Got His Gun
Social Unrest - Making Room For Youth

MP3: Everything Must Go!

YEARS IN THE MAKING (not really) Everything Must Go (official website, myspace site) is set to release their newest LP (first with the current lineup) in the next few months.

My brilliant idea was to have the record come out on 5 different LPs - with each band member's tracks on each LP (vocals on one LP, bass on one LP, etc.) and, of course, each band member would get their own cover. They're not doing it. No one gets my artistic vision.


Everything Must Go - Hate Is Blind
Everything Must Go - I Drive Like An Ass
Everything Must Go - I Hate Music
Everything Must Go - Legalize Murder

MP3: Verbal Abuse - American Band

So, there was no update last weekend because I turned 30 and had a big party. Fracas, I, Madman and America's Dirty Thirties played. Verbal Abuse jumped on the bill as well and played a short set.

Photos are here:

Verbal Abuses' classic American Band LP has been re-released by No Way Records. So, you should buy it.

Here are 3 of my favorite songs from the LP:

Verbal Abuse - American Band
Verbal Abuse - Disintegration
Verbal Abuse - I Hate You

And for the hell of it, here's a NEW demo track from their upcoming LP:

Verbal Abuse - Taking Back What's Mine
