Oh hey guys, I am totally alive. There’s not a ton of punk shows at the moment, since I think most folks are busy with graduation. It’ll all pick up soon.
Although, the Grizzled Mighty plays tonight at the Palace, with Skin Flowers and Shahs, and I wrote a few things about ‘em in the Indy this week: “If this is blues rock, it’s blues rock for head-banging and slam-dancing.” Read more.
And just get a load of this picture:

Heyo, there’s a garage show on the Northside from 8-10 PM today, then a bunch o’ bands including King Elephant play the VFW. Party!
Also, there’s a write-up of King Elephant in the Indy this week, which does not have the supremely awesome headline I wrote so that is now the title of this blog post. (I’m so bad with puns, guys.)
More details on the show calendar, as always.

Friends Of Cesar Romero (described as “ultimate pop punk” by the esteemed Grant Geiger) play the Badlander tonight with Buddy Jackson and King Elephant. Free and 21-plus, I believe. Check ‘em out on Bandcamp.

“Pizza punkers” Dead Words, Andrew Johnathan and I think King Elephant play the VFW tonight. $4 for 21 plus, $6 for 18-20.
(Also, there’s a hardcore band from Cleveland called Dead Words. This is not them. Lolz.)

Point the first: I am on Total Fest committee this year, and if it has given me anything, it’s an enormous appreciation for how much work really goes into putting on a three-day festival.
Point the second: First official announcement: Red Fang is our fly-in headliner. It’s a supremely awesome band. Along with Blind Shake, Seawhores and Hundred Visions.
Point the third: Christopher Allen at the Kaimin has a great article about Total Fest, and it employs some delightful metaphors. I can’t find it on the site so you’ll have to go grab a copy.
Point the fourth: We’ll have more announcements coming soon. I’m stoked about a lot of the acts we have coming, especially some surf-rock and hardcore acts. All shall be revealed in time, once all the paperwork gets dealt with.

Shucks, I almost forgot. It’s May Day! International Worker’s Rights Day! There’s a potluck tonight at the Traphaus (email me if you don’t know where it is) that starts around 7, and then folks are heading to the VFW around 9 or 10 for a free show with Consequence, Buddy Jackson and more. Donations at the show will go to the food bank.
