A quiet Friday night when all of a sudden, three bands from three different towns on three different touring schedules all collided at “Wally’s House Of Booze” for a colossal night of rock and roll punkedness.
First to play, from Spokane, was “Bullets Or Balloons”….
….a very unique and extremely tight trio featuring Chris Henderson on guitar and vocals, Cory Mason Phipps on “side ways facing” drums and on amazing bass was Aaron Anderberg. This guys bass playing skills still has me in awe. After this show they were headed back to Spokane for a Saturday night appearance.
The following video of “Shuffle” is off of their latest EP.
Second up was “American Dischord” (AMDX)….
….another trio yet with more punk overtones. From Kansas City, MO the band consists of (according to their facebook page) Tyler Temple on guitar and vocals, T.J. Warren (the cd cover lists Steven) on drums and vocals and Dalton Elliott (the cd cover lists Shamley) on bass and vocals.
Formed in 2012 on “Splatterhouse Records”, they did a very high energy 45 minute set and after wards they were headed to Olympia for a Saturday night performance.
The following is a video to which I know not the name. If you know what it is, please let me know.
Ending the night was some good ol’ Spud Punk, “New Iron Front” up from Boise Idaho.
This five piece, formed in the fall of 2012, consists of James on bass and vocals, Coby on guitar and vocals, Clark on other guitar and vocals, Josh on drum and front man on lead vocals “Squeezer”. These guys are what street punk is all about, fast and in your face. Their 60 minute set just zipped by as they covered numerous amounts of material and the band as a whole was very entertaining to watch plus they had the best merchandise deals T-shirts and cd’s $5 each (and mine was an XXL).
They too were headed to another show as they were to play Portland Saturday night.
The following is “Homeward Bound” my favorite tune of the band.
All in all another fabulous night of punkedness provided by “Snatchee Records” and “Wally’s House Of Booze” and all for only $5.
Come on people, go to a show, you know you want to. Until Friday, when “The Independents” arrive from South Carolina and are joined by “Potbelly” and “Virgin Thorn”, only at “Wally’s”.
