This event is 18 and over
After releasing an especially lauded EP and touring much of 2009, Philadelphia's The Menzingers have been dubbed a "Band You Need To Know" in 2010 by Alternative Press and they have a brand new full length proving why. Chamberlain Waits may very well be the most important record released so far by Red Scare and on it The Menzingers combine many of the genre's styles (punk, hardcore, folk) to make for an undeniably infectious hybrid of hits. Produced by Matt Allison at Atlas Studios (Alkaline Trio, Less Than Jake, Lawrence Arms), this band and this new album are destined for great, great things.
Self-described roots-punk that touches on all your record-collection faves -- The Replacements rub elbows with punk-era Soul Asylum as they sleep off a melodic-punk hangover -- as it combines bits and pieces from rock'n'roll glory days into something new
At a time when the music world is saturated with more bands than ever, Restorations are a refreshing change of pace: An act who undeniably embody the DIY spirit but also bring along a real breadth of musical knowledge and an unlikely set of influences that somehow manage to work perfectly together. Equal parts punk rock and polemics, Restorations is a unique group of musicians that's difficult to categorize and even harder to get out of your head.
Captain We're Sinking
Captain, We're Sinking is a punk band from Scranton, PA, featuring guitarist/vocalists Bobby Barnett and Leo Vergnetti, bass player Zach "Rug Nasty", and drummer Bill "Squid" Oreander (their combined force results in what is known as "Rhythm Section" that is said to be absolutely unstoppable. Wake ass Dj's and conrny sounding MC's alike should proceed with caution and should under no circumstances get theses dudes started).
With one stellar album and one unbelievably brilliant-but-heartbreaking EP under their collective belt, CWS has played the Fest in Gainesville, FL twice now, and undertaken a few small tours, generally around the northeast. They are expected to release a new album sometime in late 2010/early 2011, and a split 7" with the band Timeshares is due soon as well. It should be noted that Bobby Barnett is in fact the brother of Greg Barnett, of Scranton's latest explosive export, The Menzingers. Bobby also doesn't like Cheese Wiz on his cheesteaks. What a freak.
