Goner Fest 8
Memphis, TN, September 22nd through 25th, 2011
By J. Federico

Extra points for Alicja ramming the fretboard of her Flying-V against the mic stand. Could she get any cooler? I was in heaven.

Dávila 666, Cheap Time and Wax Idols
At the Bottom of the Hill, San Francisco, September 8, 2011
By J. Federico

Everyone sang, they all appeared to have loads of energy, and it seemed like they were having a great time. The crowd was feeling it and giving it right back. There was hand clapping. There was a tambourine. There were maracas. It was rocking. It was fucking lively!

Unnatural Helpers at the 1-2-3-4 Go! 10th Anniversary Shows
Oakland Metro Opera House, Oakland, CA, July 22, 2011
By J. Federico

Lesson: If you’re going to be a dickhead and throw a bottle, at least wait until a few songs in.

Happy Anniversary 1-2-3-4 Go!


Chixdiggit! and Kepi Ghoulie
Aboard the Rocks Off Concert Cruise, New York Harbor, NY, 8/14/2011
By Andy Conway

Seeing the Statue of Liberty in the background while watching a band play is something I thought I would have to wait until I was involved in the punk scene on the Planet of the Apes to ever experience.

Itchy-O and Extra Action Marching Band
At The Uptown, Oakland, California, June 11, 2011
By J. Federico

I like marching bands!

Dudman and Himo
Live at Studio Telecom, Tokyo, Japan, February 6, 2011
By Jennifer Federico

Regardless of the taste, though, my friend and I thought it was sooooo cool that this was all set up—it was very cooperative and sharing… kind of like a pot luck but waiting for you after a fucking excellent show rather than at a picnic or something. It was so great!

Skitkids, Sumerian Axe, Bruise Violet, and Bomb-Raid

If I hadn’t taken the pictures, I wouldn’t have remembered how good the show was.

Sydney Ducks, Northern Towns, and Young Offenders
At the Hemlock, San Francisco, November 12, 2010
By Jennifer Federico

In the middle of their set, someone in the crowd yelled out:
“More tribal tattoos in the monitor!” 
I think for a long time I will remember that and laugh.

Sharp Objects
At Thee Parkside, SF, Nov. 11, 2010
By Jennifer Federico

I’ll tell you, my brother (who was at the show with me), could not stop going on about it! “The bass!” he would say.

Articles Of Faith, Oct. 8th, 2010 at the Metro, Chicago, IL
By Tim Jamison
By Guest Contributor

From the first note that rang out, I was totally and completely elated. I realized half way through the set that my face hurt from smiling so much.

Riot Fest 2010
October 6, 2010, Chicago, Illinois, I Was There.
By Sean Koepenick

I decided to grab some coffee across the street from our hotel. Who should I see but the legendary Mike Ditka outside his restaurant, talking to one of his employees.

Melvins and Totimoshi
At the Troubadour on September 15, 2010 in Hollywood, CA
By Marcus Solomon

I was so overwhelmed and immersed in the transcendental state brought forth by meditational Melvinism and strong alcohol that the audience seemed to disappear for extended periods of time.

Scream and The Gears
At the Redwood Bar on October 17th, 2010
By Ever Velasquez

The years may have rolled by, but the attitude, energy, and music was as great as the first time I was introduced to the band.

Shonen Knife
At Amoeba Records San Francisco, Sept. 12th, 2010
By J. Federico

They do have their heavy moments, and, at other times, songs like “Little Tree” are so fucking darling that it just slays me.

Order Of The Fly, The, The Returners, Leper, Bad Form, Wreckin’ Katz
August 26, 2010 at The Venue, San Bernardino CA
By Marcus Solomon

Another great unknown playing amazing music in the shadows.

Destino Final, Mala Sangre, and Liberate
Photos Taken at The Blvd., Boyle Heights, California, 5/16/09
By Donofthedead

Reverb! Reverb!  More Reverb!

Hjertestop and Deskonocidos
Photos Taken at the Blvd., Boyle Heights, California, 5/13/09
By Donofthedead

Not sure how to pronounce the names, but the music was more important than me finding out.

Guided Cradle, Bloody Phoenix, Terrorism, Sin Remedio, and Bastard
Photos Taken at the Blvd., Boyle Heights, California, 5/2/09
By Donofthedead

When you’re playing bass with a serious face, is that bassface?

Photos From Awesome Fest 4
September 3rd, 4th, & 5th, North Park, California
By Staff

For Awesome Fest 4, Razorcake asked four photographers to document their weekend.

Volver, Despertar, Creo En Mí, Control Chubby, Venganza
At ¡Sí! GTHC, May 29, 2010, Guatemala City, Guatemala
By Lisa Weiss

Venganza sound like the CEO of British Petroleum being hit in the face with an oil-covered pelican.

Conquest For Death, Sin Remedio, SMD, and DxAxF
Photos Taken at The Blvd., Boyle Heights, California, 5/1/09
By Donofthedead

The man in the picture is an air guitar champion. He’s not too shabby with a real guitar in his hand.

In Praise of Bowling Alley Shows
Eddy Current Suppression Ring and more.
By J. Federico

Meanwhile, people bowled on. I felt a little bad for some of the families that were there, as it did not seem like they were expecting a live show, nor a huge crowd hogging up all the free space, chattering away in between (and during) bands, making the food and drink lines incredibly long and creating a significant cloud of smoke right outside the exit.

Dastard, Days Off, Canadian Rifle at Ronnie’s Bar, Chicago, 6/17/10
By Chris Gottlieb
By Guest Contributor

They played about three more songs and said, “All right, that’s it.”

Glow Kit, Even Dwarfs + More
June 19, 2010 at Bolschefabrikken, Copenhagen, Denmark
By J. Federico

I did do some searching online to see if any Danish bands that I like might be playing while I was there. Priorities!

Windy City Sound Clash 2010
By Nighthawk
By Guest Contributor

I ended up at Kevin and Ben’s in just my underwear and shoes. I should mention also, that you have to walk past an elementary school to get from one house to the other. Good thing it was the weekend.
