Deathboys

Deathboys are an essential sassy bit of fun right now! Yes, at this moment and from now on!  Trust me, you're are going to love the shit out of San Diego's own,  Deathboys. ♥ They have that sneering vocalist with punk attitude, this distorted but bouncy boinging bass that slaps hard as fuck! Drums? Bitch you're going to love shaking that annoying Quarantine Quarter Ton you gained! I hope you'll find that Deathboys are an essential sassy bit of  fun [...]

Madrugado N. San Diego

From the darkest depths of punk rage... sprung forth this beast called Madrugado  and I'm going to call their style  Grind Punk. Is this an actual sub-genre?  Most likely I'm not clever enough to have made that up on my own but there is really no other appropriate description for what I'm listening to. This shit slaps like a wrecking ball!  Madrugado hails from San Diego North County which is encompasses anything north of Poway ( home of Blink 182. [...]

The Writhers!

Adding "Going to go hella crazy with The Writhers"... to my list of "Things To Do ASAP When It's Safe".  San Diego's Horror Punk / Rockabilly, The Writhers, is one of the most tantalizing gems in the our local music scene. Their creations are slap you silly motivators of  massive debauchery of shameless mayhem. I loved their Horror Punk theme, the  vocals, the bouncy punk rock / rockabilly beats that are truly hardcore but with an occasional tinge of those [...]

Systematic Abuse

Systematic Abuse is that sensational band that appeals to our rebellious aggression with that ultimate, "fuck all of you" feel. Don't we all have those days, especially nowadays? I don't know about you but I think I've binged enough Hulu and shit. Right now, my getaway is to just drive down the freeway, windows down and music blaring. One of the best bands for essential sanity drives?  Is this San Diego hardcore punk band, Systematic Abuse. Don't be an idiot, [...]

Some Kind of Nightmare

  Some Kind of Nightmare is rough as hell with an abundance of energy and a fucking delicious rawness that's punk as fuck  perfection. I loved the scratchy vocals that are so specifically in place among this cohesive band. Some Kind of Nightmare is San Diego based but nomadic by nature but lets hope they are in San Diego to lift us up from our doldrums  as soon as this Covid shit is dealt with. Until then, please be sure [...]

Crooked Nuns

Perfect Insolence! With massively addictive beats, catchy guitar and bass keeping it bouncy entwined with perfectly insolent "fuck off" punk vocals, Crooked Nuns is a  San Diego based punk band you need to know! Alright, I don't know much about Crooked Nuns, yet. So, I'm going to share what I have with you and you do whatever you want to do with whatever Crooked Nuns shit I'm sharing. Just be sure to connect with them through the following social media [...]

Kitty Plague

Lets Have Fun MEOW!! Kitty Plague creates infectious bits of luscious Garage Punk audio confections! You're going to love their super fun nonsensical nerd and cat themed lyrics padding among lively beats, nice distortion and brightness galore. This is a band for parties or sweep away the doldrums. Of course, you're not here for my review but to create your own opinion so lets have fun and meet San Diego's Kitty Plague MEOW!! ( Cheesy? No regrets ) Band Information [...]

Last Option – West Coast Hardcore

Last Option is for the absolute punk rock purist who enjoys the harder edged and aggressive side of this genre. From Arizona, Last Option originally formed in 1986 and has endured a hiatus and changes throughout the years. As Friedrich Nietzsche said, " That which does not kill us, makes us stronger".  Last Option could have been but a memory, instead they are a wonderful addition to San Diego's music scene. A Bit More.. This seasoned band has, what  I [...]

Epic 18

Fun Times! Epic 18 brings their ska / punk rock vibes fun filled with positive emotions entwined with music that's made to bring us together and party our asses off! I found I couldn't listen to Epic 18 without smiling and dancing. Love Epic 18! This band does hail from the Imperial Valley ( San Diego County - ish (?) )  but they have played in San Diego at the 710 Beach Club, The Tower Bar and Mothers Saloon and [...]
