Top shows of 2011

Sorry about the lack of posts, I've just been busy with holiday stuff. New posts will start again after New Years, but in the meantime here's my top shows of the year (that I recorded anyway).

(Looking back at all the posts it was hard not to just list them all. So I mostly just stuck with out of towners.)

Tenement - 12/2/11 - House Of Lard

I'm not sure how a band this poppy, have gained such a devoted following in the Hardcore community... Maybe it's just cause they're fucking awesome.

No Class - 11/12/11 - House Of Lard

I'm glad these dudes stomped their way up here from Kansas City. Get yo mosh on.

Brown Sugar - 11/8/11 - Hill Valley

Have you ever gone to see a band, then wonder how the fuck you had never listened to them before?

Condominium - 10/29/11 - Seward Cafe

It's kinda weird, their live shows seem to have power/speed than I can ever remember them having before, while the records are going in the opposite direction.
(Speaking of which, if you don't have Warm Home yet, what's wrong with you?)

Bad Sports - 8/6/11 - Hill Valley

What is in the water in Denton? More great tunes from there, this time in the form of ultra catchy Garage-Punk

Wild Child - 7/31/11 - Hill Valley

Twin Cities up & comers that had built up quite the reputation before I got a chance to see 'em, thankfully they lived up to it.

Organized Sports - 8/22/11 - Madusa

Blistering Hardcore via Portlandia, who despite the name, don't really sound like Void.

The Sleaze - 8/6/11 - Hill Valley

One of my favorites played their last reunion show & what a mess it was. They couldn't even get through their last three, completely out of tune songs. So sloppy, so drunk, but honestly that's why I love 'em & I wouldn't have had it any other way. RIP

Brain Tumors - 8/22/11 - Medusa

Weirdo Hardcore from some class clowns here in Minneapolis. On tour for another week with Much Worse, go talk to them , have them tell you some jokes.

Male Nurses - 8/22/11 - Medusa

Hardcore punkers from Beantown sure know how to put on a show, glad I didn't miss it.
Also the Zero Boys cover is killer.

Wax Museums - 8/6/11 - Hill Valley

Goofball garage punk strait outta Denton, TX featuring two members of Wiccans and two of Bad Sports. Fun stuff.

Self-Interest - 7/31/11 - Hill Valley

It was hard not to post this for an entire week. Oh so noisy, (I didn't think the recording would work out at all, turned out well though) but exactly what I wanted.

Leather - 7/31/11 - Hill Valley

I haven't seen people go off like that in a while. Plenty more to come from this one, but Leather stole the show.

Wiccans - 7/21/11 - House of Lard

Believe every scrap of hype you hear about this band. Totally bummed their set got cut short due to some guy getting knocked out.
(bonus psychedelic jamming at the beginning)

No Problem - 7/2/11 - The Beat Coffeehouse

After Hearing their new LP I thought 'This is a damn good band'. Now after seeing them live, I'm thoroughly convinced they are about to take over the world.

Frozen Teens - 6/11/11 - House of Lard

These guys should be way bigger than they are. Equal parts punk, garage & pop, it's delicious.

Monday, June 20, 2011

Much Worse - 6/11/11 - House of Lard

Seems like these guys haven't been playing any shows (or ones that I'm interested in) lately, so it was nice to hear these stompers again.

Night Birds - 6/11/11 - House of Lard

Wow, they fucking KILLED it, best show/set I've seen in a while. If you get the chance to see 'em live, you owe it to yourself not to miss it.

The Soviettes - 5/27/11 - Triple Rock

Pop-punk queens from right here in Minneapolis are back(?) & featuring Mikey Erg on drums too, which is cool.
(about 35 more mins in the DL)

Marked Men - 5/27/11 - Triple Rock

I thought for sure that I'd never get the chance to see them live, so I was really excited for this one.
(so here's how it's gonna go with these 30+ minute sets, I'll put 15 or so minutes of it in a soundcloud & the whole set will be in the download)

Dear Landlord - 4/5/11 - Dingus House

Dope pop-punk from Chicago/MPLS. This made me realize I should go to more pop-punk house shows.
(this is way to long (45mins) to do a soundcloud for this, but it's split up for your convenience (as always) in the download)

Question - 5/15/11 - Medusa

Pu-unk from MPLS/NY. On tour right now, so don't settle for this, check 'em out if they're in your area.

Formaldehyde Junkies - 4/27/11 - The Rathole

Wow was it packed for their last set ever (the recording may have suffered a bit from that).
Listen close and you can hear someone getting "deported".

Cülo - 4/27/11 - The Rathole

Also from Chicago. I didn't get most of the set, only 3 songs, but any Cülo is good.

Manipulation - 4/27/11 - The Rathole

From Chicago. I think I missed the first song or two, which is a bummer.

Condominium - 4/27/11 - The Rathole

Probably my favorite band going right now. I'm glad they're the first post.
