    • Haahaa! That's exactly what happened to me when I tried to get tickets to see The Mummies two years ago. Doh! I don't think it's here you have to worry about.

      ACID BABY JESUS
      http://slovenly.bandcamp.com/album/acid-baby-jesus-self-titled-lp
      http://www.facebook.com/pages/Acid-Baby-Jesus/146447782059432

      The debut full length tidal wave from Greece's ABJ. A Mediterranean concoction of two of our favorite "Black" bands (Sabbath/ Lips), ABJ represents the future of heavy psych'n'roll from an isolated, ancient civilization. Combining the ruthless elements of American outlaw roots music and celestial glam rock, like fellow deconstructionists Demon's Claws, "LP" suggests the Rolling Stones at their wearied best, with the electrifying hi-jinks of Brian Eno bulldozing the swagger into the darkest corners of the cosmos.
      --------------------------------
      HELLSHOVEL
      http://www.facebook.com/HellShovel
      http://hellshovel1.bandcamp.com/

      In the midst of a relentless USA / European touring schedule (including copious performances with contemporaries / new label mates Acid baby Jesus) and the release of a small handful of 7” singles, the Slovenly posse is trying to wrap our brains around this warped debut LP / CD called “Hated By The Sun” by Canadian bumpkin punks HELLSHOVEL (aka Hell Shovel). Led by Demon’s Claws frontman Jeff Clarke, and featuring Dox Grillo sharing the strings / vox duties, with Bloodshot Bill (TANDOORI NIGHTS / DING DONGS / swarthy one man band LEGEND who makes an effortless transition on the drums from his [un]usual wild man rockabilly fare), “Hated By The Sun” is the sound of Johnny Cash drowning in a pool of cough syrup - a gooey reminder of the most irradiated moments of Demon’s Claws poisonous choo-choo train shamble. A swank, full color gatefold jacket houses the wax.
      ------------------------------------
      K-HOLES
      http://www.facebook.com/pages/K-Holes/109802125714172
      http://k-holes.bandcamp.com/

      The K-Holes speak at once of the mystic and the cosmopolitan, the primal and urbane, the earthen and its synthesized cousins. But unlike their contemporaries, theirs is not a sound of the grinning, gregarious panderer. Nor is it one of the bored or at-ease. Rather, it’s one of escape.

      Escape from the concrete scrabble of New York, that moneyed parking lot for the cynical and privileged; escape from the vulgar materialism sung from the metropolitan mouth; escape from the vacuous r’n’r pantomime that promises mere vaudevillian entertainment in any number of the city’s myriad dives. No, the K-Holes set these things afire, and in their stead, they proffer a wet hand, leading you, the wanton listener, down a path to another flame, a funereal white-hot pyre – one that promises more than sheer cleansing nihilism. One that promises freedom amongst cages of different shapes, sizes and colors. A way out.

      Their abdication follows a natural extension of the atrophied rock/roll ligament –
      unfurling from H. Williams to G. Vincent to Larry & the Blue Notes to the Pagans, Birthday Party, Flesh Eaters, Scientists, beyond – colored, at times, with ethereal smudges of primitive ceremony. As we follow their trajectory, running from the towering urban oppression, we hear whiffs of guttural noir in the honk of the sax, we hear the frustrated yelp in the guitar, we sense the bite and lust in their gang vocal. It’s fueled, all the while, by a thundering beat of tribal divination. Their burghal séance urges us onward, upward, and we sense the fire nearing all the while. But the heat emanates not from the flame to which we run. It flowers from the pyre that has devoured us from the inside all along: the one that burns us up and tells us to move – in any direction at all, in any way we see fit, consequences be damned.

      The K-Holes didn’t put the fire there. But we sincerely thank them for finding and fueling it.

      LIVIDS
      http://www.facebook.com/pages/Livids/268753126513652
       livids.bandcamp.com

      A marrow-rattling new buzz-punk stuporgroup from Brooklyn and parts nearby, featuring screamer, Eric Davidson (New Bomb Turks); git-slinger Jami Wolf (Shop Fronts, Zodiac Killers); lead guitar boy wonder, Dan-yell Kelley (Dead Ringers, Complaints, Paper Bags, and Re-volts), drum-smasher, Greg Collins (Radio 4); and boss bass bender, Joi Lacour, who is mulling over changing her name to “Jeez Louise.”
      The band’s been a thing since spring 2011, but the latest and best lineup has been going since February 2012. We’ve shared the beer-spilled stage with the Spits, No Bunny, OBN IIIs, Acid Baby Jesus, Foster Care, the Othermen, Night Birds, and loads more. And we just scorched out like 14 songs in 7 hours at a studio in the Gowanus ‘hood of Brooklyn, looking to get it out on wax, and are always scheming shows. So stay tuned…!

    • Rockin', glad to hear you're going! Yeah, downtown  West side is pretty narsty, Dante's had some cool stuff in the past. But no-one ever says a bad thing about Ash St.

      Thanks for venue names, always good to spread the word.

      For some reason my brain registered Sonics as Sonic Youth and I'm now realizing its The Sonics (really!!??). Wow, I was lucky enough to see Gonn a few years ago and I have never seen The Sonics. I like Hawthorne Theater, friendly folks. I saw Unknown Hinson there last summer. So, yeah, I will go in that case. In terms of venues (garage/surf's been on a downturn for quite a while around here there's more of just basic punk or slight variations thereof) lately. So all depending on the night.... East End, Kenton Club, Foggy Notion, Katie O'Brien's (love the bar staff there, actually looks like a promising show on Feb. 10), occasionally O'Malley's ..... Somebody already put up the website I check for shows. I try not to put name or sources up because I'm well aware of the creepy phone calls that venues get from RIAA folks. . . Luckily, I don't see a shortage of original bands playing original music, just downtimes here and there. . . such as now. Right after the holidays it seemed like everyone was playing. I'm not a big fan of Downtown... because of the douche-ification factor. Ash Street Saloon isn't so bad, tho'.

      Ugh, Crusty-core, don't remind me! ;D 

      But where do garage-type punks hang out? Or where do '77-types hang out?

      Y'going to the Sonics gig?

      Are you guys kidding? There are more punk venues than even 2 years ago AND booking ...well almost 7 days a week (who can afford 7 days a week anymore). Doug Fir?...that's more of hipster noise venue. Though there's is the occasional good show there. Quite a few don't seem to advertise, which is fine by me. It's the Portland-weird way. But get ye olde Mercury or WW out, seek and ye shall fine. Some venues may place a general ad, but don't put the shows up, could I be speaking of Club 21? This town is littered with everything punk venue-wise....I like The Know because it's in my 'hood. Even if you don't like too much doom crusty in yer punk'in pie. No, they mix it up. Y'know Portland is home to the hybrid crust-hipster-punk-doom crossover. Hybrid is the wave of the future you know.

      Portland's clubs are currently on a down swing. I don't think any of them book live bands 7 nights a week right now, & none really book only one type of music like the Satyricon did back in its day. The last one to do the punk only booking was Plan B, which just changed to become the "White Owl Social Club". They just opened a week or so ago, so I'm not sure what the booking plans are for them. The old Plan B booker is now at Ash Street Saloon, so they might be an up swing in punk bands at that venue.

    • Since Satyricon closed down, has Portland, Oregon had anywhere for a punk band to play? It seems like Slabtown, Dante's, Doug Fir will have a punk roadshow once in awhile, but is there a venue that showcases local punk consistently?

      Are there any local punk bands left in Portland?

    • My band, The Mad Doctors, has been playing Brooklyn and the surrounding areas for a few months (it's been an amazing ride thus far!) but we are also looking to venture out into the great northeastern yonder. We want to play some kickass shows and meet people around this great region of ours! But we don't know a lot of bands outside of NYC.

      So, if anyone's awesome band is booking a show for a late Friday or Saturday night (unfortunately, we work day jobs so can't travel much besides weekends) and are looking for another act, we'd love to come and rock out! 

      We sound like this:
