Friday night i went to a punk show to see my friends Gabe and Revik’s band Jack Killed Jill at the Stork Club in Oaktown. As usual, a great show. This was the first time i’d been to the Stork’s new location, and it certainly is a step up. As opposed to being a shithole dive with a dinky stage, it’s now a shithole dive with a dinky stage and some character.
I was glad to have stayed for the headliner, La Plebe- awesome ska-punk band from San Francisco. I talked to a couple of the members after the show, and it was nice to see how humble they were towards their audience. I’ve seen so many bands pull the uptight, cockwaffle rockstar bullshit (and 90% of those bands can’t back it up with good music to boot), so it was refreshing to see these guys appreciate their fans. I’ll see ‘em again in a heartbeat.
The rumors of Black Snake Moan having our first show next month are…maybe not just rumor.
