rudie can't fail

Ugh. Is it the middle of November, really? Where does the time go?

I thought this week was gonna end up being scarce, but of course myspace bulletins come through with an unending tide of shows you'll never be able to get to (considering most are on the same day). If only there was a kind of punk band union, or a regulatory committee to both keep people from booking on the same day/time and to inform and mobilize the fans and bands to see each other's shows. You might end up with people watching who aren't actually with one of the bands! (Why do people think I have musical chops? I can't even play the mouth harp. I sure work the 'ol meat organ though! Hah hah...)

The first show isn't punk at all, but I don't care; it's entertaining. The Ska Is Dead tour is rolling through to Culture Room. I'll be there to relive the 90's without the sickening feeling of nothing to do and no good music to listen to.

Culture Room - The Toasters, Mustard Plug, Voodoo Glow Skulls, Deal's Gone Bad
7:30pm, $15 (yeah right thanks ticketmaster, unless you wanna be there at 6 and get a leftover ticket), all ages

The next is a free show at the old Zoo Bar/Kreepy Tiki Lounge, now The Monterey Club. Fruitiest name i've ever heard for a punk venue. Some very decent bands so check it out if you're north of US-1 and I-595 on Friday night. (There is no room to mosh but please don't let that stop you from trying!)

Friday, November 20th, 2009
The Monterey Club (2608 S Federal Hwy, Fort Lauderdale, FL) - Consular, To Be Hated, Johnny Sexfuk & The Fleshrockets, The Actuaries
10pm, free, 21 to drink any age if you dont go to the bar

After that you get a big 'ol steaming pile of 3 shows on Saturday. The show in Ft. Laud with some metal/oi bands is basically a kegger, raffle and show which explains the higher than usual price. Miami is a more anarcho-friendly Firefly show with some hardcore punk and other goodness. In Margate there's an interesting medley of pop-punk, oi/hardcore and other stuff i'm not familiar with. As a general guide i'd say go to The Bubble if you like metal, The Firefly if you like strange or crusty new music, and O'Malley's for a good cross-section of modern local fairly-normal punk.

The Bubble (810 NE 4th Ave, Fort Lauderdale, FL) - Murderous Rampage, Howitzer, Edge of Anger
7pm, $15, 21 and up

I'm not sure what's going on with Churchill's or Toxic Thursday but i'll update if I find something out. In the mean time msg me if you're going to a show (specifically the ska one).
