I went to the first night of the 25th
anniversary of Pennywise show at the Hollywood palladium. It was also the
return of Jim Linberg the main voice, and front man of Pennywise. To be honest seeing Jim back with the band made
this event more exciting to see, and lets just face it the other was guy good, but he wasn’t cut out
for this job. Pennywise played all the hits
that night, and at one point, there was three different slam pits going on at
once. It's quite a sight to see a bunch of middle age punk rocker dudes running around in the pit punching each other, I'm guessing everyone was stoked to see Jim back with the band. I only took pictures of
Pennywise and Strung Out that night because I really didn’t give a fuck about
the other bands that played on the bill. And I really don’t have anything else to say about the show other then punks not dead...
I’ve been a fan of the stoner rock genres with bands like KYUSS and everything else under the banner of smoke. But after all these years I
finally got see my first Unida show, and it happen to be the Whisky A Go Go of
all places. I just never got around to seeing these guys back
in their prime, so I guess I’m late to the party. Enough of my bullshit, these
guys down right kicked ass! I’m also hearing they’re
going to be playing more shows soon, and possibly a European tour in 2013. So be sure
to watch out for the return of Unida.
It’s Casual played over
Thanksgiving weekend at the world famous Troubadour in West Hollywood on Black
Friday. While most people are out shopping for them discounted Christmas gifts to give to their families. Eddie
Solis the brains behind this two-piece hardcore band from east LA played all
the songs off theire first album The New Los Angeles, and their new album, The New Los Angeles
Two. Playing all of their songs in it's entirety. Being it was a holiday weekend and most people are out of town, this show had a pretty good turn out, and it was a
lot of fun. Be sure to check out It's Casual in the new year...
This video was originally made to help promote Andy Bell's fight against Jason Ellis at the Ellismaina #8. I had finished the video right before the fight was about to happen, and that's when Andy dropped out the event. Leaving me hanging with this video and no reason to put it online. So time has passed and I thought what the hell, let's put this video out so the fans can at least watch it. It's better then sitting in my computer. Who knows, maybe it will inspire the rematch to happen after all.
