post-holiday wind down

There was quite some activity in the past week, what with Thanksgiving, Black Friday and a multitude of shows. Perhaps it's fitting this week seems bland and barren in comparison. After The Methodaires (when did the lead singer change?) my car decided to cook itself with a bad t-stat and sensor, so i've been MIA more than usual. I've only found one two punk shows for this week though i'm sure something is going on i'm not aware of.

The Panix finally had to cancel their record release show planned for the 5th. They didn't get the records made in time, their booking moved twice, and other unexpected complications led to the show's dissolution. But don't worry, they'll be back in '10 with merch-a-plenty (and hopefully a new tour).

Wow.. I am really slacking! I missed posting a good show at Rok Bar on the 28th. People aren't posting bulletins anymore... I need to start hunting down shows it seems. And I almost missed this: Misfits this Friday @ Culture Room, with JSF and Thrash Or Die. I'm not a big Misfits fan but this will be a show you won't come out of without multiple bruises - so i'm kinda excited.

Culture Room (3045 North Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale, FL) - Misfits, Johnny Sexfuk and the Fleshrockets, Thrash Or Die
8pm, $20, ?? (i can't see how this wouldn't be all-ages)

This show is a good one for drinking: [good] original country covers, followed by i'm not sure what, and then Oi punk. Unfortunately, if you've been to the Poorhouse lately you know it's lost all its old charm. The dirty pit of misanthropes that once was is gone. Now it's more of a brightly-lit and poorly-renovated stepchild to the monument of douchebaggery next door. But no matter, as long as they play good music and keep the pints flowin'.

Poorhouse (110 SW 3rd Ave, Fort Lauderdale, FL) - Hawg Jowls & The Bacon Fats, Faux Town Fever, Howitzer

In the coming weeks there'll be a bunch more shows. TBH is having another free Radio-Active show and toy drive. Stay tuned or check the calendar for details.

p.s. if anyone has a show to link me to or a new band i should check out, post it in the comments! thx
