THIS LITTLE UNDERGROUND
Although I was pulling double duty between concerts at Will’s Pub
and Uncle Lou’s
last Wednesday (May 18), I just wasn’t able to catch everything. Life is unfair like that. There were a couple other bands at the Uncle Lou’s show that I wanted to see but couldn’t, but the one that I absolutely would not miss was Period Bomb.
Like their visceral moniker promises, the Los Angeles/Miami punk band is a direct and colorful affront to convention.
All that normative shit that you inherited by insidious social osmosis – even the boys-club punk orthodoxy – they target it right between the eyes and on all levels. In sound, optics and concept, they are pure and exciting provocation.
And they do it with maximum flair.
One good local find there was Skatanabis,
a practically instrumental band of young cats playing old stoner metal
with little imagination but total devotion and respectable justice.
