Punk Rock Bowling 2014 Day 3

Day 3 of Punk Rock Bowling is the day look you forward to with some reservation, it is another great day and night of music but it is also the last day so that is always stuck in the back of your brain as you go about your last day of shenanigans.

 

The festival started off with a really good set by Rats In The Wall, my first time seeing them and they are really good.

It’s official: Miley is more punk than you

There is never a shortage of things to get people riled up in the digital age, self proclaimed punk experts declaring who and what is punk, what bands are to old to be punk, why you are not punk and of course the ever present declaration that punk is dead.

Circle Jerks: My Career As A Jerk

If you are a fan of the Circle Jerks then this is a no-brainer to buy or borrow because you will enjoy it. David Markey brings us yet another great documentary with tons of interviews, live footage and a few rarities. Everyone gets their chance to talk and give their opinions and side to the story as why the band is no longer together but what I enjoy more is hearing about how they got together and what the first few years were like. When Keith, Greg or Lucky talk about the early years of the band they do so in a way that is not influenced by what happened in later years, for me it is nice to see that any animosity today does not cloud what they were able to do 30 sum years ago. Zander and Earl Liberty provide plenty of good stories from their time in the band and you learn the whole story on Roger, the original bassist.

If you don’t know this band by now you….well, you may have some issues. One being you apparently don’t like or listen to Punk or perhaps some things are just way too awesome for you. I got many comments while sporting my OFF! shirt at this years Punk Rock Bowling from not only others attending but from folks in bands and Matt Skiba himself made a point to tell me how awesome they are.
