WEDNESDAY, MARCH 18 AT NARWHAL (basement of Unicorn) 1118 E PIKE ST GAG - ...GAG are far from political, and in many respects envelop the “No Future” attitude held by many punks from the Reagan and Thatcher era. GAG offers no solutions to your problems, which may or may not be ones they hold in common with you, other than punk music that is loud, hard, visceral and very, very moshable. The band does, however, have a sense humor. Their 2013 releases, being their most recent, are titled This Punk Shit Is Cool But I Hope I’m Rob Zombie When I’m 28 ‘98 (a one-sided EP on Bedside Records), 40 Oz. Rule ‘90 (a 7” on Warthog Speak) and Gas Mask ’95 (a flexi on Perennial) respectively. Each record features tracks that vary in speed and composition, with slow primal riffs building up to fast volatile bursts (take the track “Warm Milk” for instance, with the Gas Mask ’95 version featuring Dave Harvey on a distorted wailing saxophone) and mid-tempo bangers such as “Don’t Like” and “Haunted Truck Bed.” It’s safe to say they obviously don’t take themselves as seriously as a lot of punk bands these days, partially evidenced in the cataloging of their releases by ending the titles with arbitrary years from the ‘90s. -- CRIME DESIRE (San Diego, CA) - Crime Desire is a long running hardcore band from San Diego, CA who formed in 2003. Crime Desire play a great style of hardcore that seamlessly blends various styles of international hardcore including UK hardcore, Japanese style hardcore, and 80's influenced DC/Boston hardcore. Musically, Crime Desire can be said to be influenced by bands such as Icons Of Filth, Antisect, Selfish Records/Burning Spirits style Japanese hardcore, and 80's USHC bands such as Batallion Of Saints and Crux. Your Power is the band's latest full-length LP, which was released via Standards Records on December 1st, 2014. Your Power is Crime Desire's first LP in four years and features eleven tracks of non-compromising and unapologetic hardcore that's an absolute must listen for fans of Green Beret, The Boston Strangler, and Hounds Of Hate. Overall, Your Power absolutely rips and is not to be missed. Highly recommended! Enjoy! -- -- BIG TRUGHK - sick psychos -- -- SMILING - members of Stickers, Footwork + more 9pm $7 21+
