POGO & Agnostic Front

What's up kids? Long time no see. This is your uber late punk informer bringing you the scanty details on shows you probably won't go to (since you aren't reading this). However, in the spirit of promoting things I like you should probably check out POGO on Friday at Churchill's Pub. It's a night of classic hardcore punk covers by groovy local bands. Come check it out, wouldja?

Also, Agnostic Front is down yet again next month. I could swear they were just here...

Followed by Leatherface and Ninja Gun (same link above).
Indeed, even The Nekromantix will be coming to Churchill's, which is pretty cool. Buy tix here.

mon dieu! i hate blagging

So since nobody reads this thing and it actually takes time to update (and I have no internet at home) this is somewhat annoying to keep updating. For the few of you that still read this thing, or in a vein attempt to keep readers from the future with an idea of who came through town: here is your update.


No seriously. Here you go.

Against Me! will be playing Culture Room in 2 days. Yeah I know, kinda short notice. I've known for several months and never put it on the calendar or anything. Meh. I don't know Tim Barry but it sounds like mostly just acoustic solo stuff from their myspace. Ninja Gun sounds like indie rock. I guess, go with an indie/anarchist sensibility and/or an open mind.

Culture Room - Against Me!, Tim Barry, Ninja Gun
7:30pm, $12-$30 (because how the fuck do you buy Culture Room tickets other than stubhub or ticketraper?), Probably All Ages

punk for hope

It seems there's been a great outpouring of support for Haiti in the wake of the recent disaster there. I know a few people who know people in Haiti, and they seem to be missing. Please help by donating via the Red Cross or visiting one of the benefit shows this and next week. If Punk music isn't your thing there are plenty of other venues with other types of music also having benefits for Hatian relief.

<rant> Also, I know this is a bit pretentious, but please try to think about all your superfluous purchases this week in the context of a person in Haiti. Take all the money you're spending on the things you don't *really* need and try to give some of it to a relief organization that can make good use of it. Whatever you spend at the bar, try to spend the same on the Red Cross or some other respectable aid organization. And of course remember that after Haiti is back on it's feet there are plenty of other people throughout the world that also need your help (including those at home). </rant>

Not North News is a new site bringing news about the Florida punk scene to Not the North. Seems interesting, hope it gets big!

Here's something I found today. Enjoy.

freezing your bollocks off since 2009

Jesus christ. Isn't this the tropics? I am not built for Florida's temperature extremes. No matter; a little nip off the flask and a headbutt and all is OK.

update added Friday show: Elvis Tribute!

So i've missed a couple shows recently. It's getting harder to justify updating this blag, since I have 0 feedback and my analytics show very poor readership. I have written a couple web pages to help me post flyers quicker but i'm not done with the Google Calendar aspect of it yet. Once I get around to that I may also incorporate Twitter and a user-contributed function, so people can just post shows themselves. It would be nice to know somebody would use it, however...

So. I don't know any of these bands at The Talent Farm. Let's just assume they kick ass?

Tuesday, January 5 2010
The Talent Farm (20911 Johnson St #110-111, Pembroke Pines, FL 33029) - Transit - Make Do And Mend, Go Rydell, Cool To Be You, Blank Tape, Featherweight
6:00pm, $10, all ages

Thursday comes on strong with a series of strange bands at Solid Sound Studios. Remember, kids: no moshing, no drinking, and no wild behavior. This is Punk Rock. Serious Business.

Thursday, January 7 2010
Solid Sound Studios (4616 N. Powerline Rd, Pompano Beach, FL) - To Be Hated, Break On Through, The Dead Legs, Routine Scheme, Ceasefire, Dead Bang
7:00pm, $10, all ages

J & P is always a nice watering hole and easy place to sit back and listen to hardcore punk (huh?). Come check it out if you're in WPB, it's free!

J & P Sports Bar (1023 N Dixie Hwy, West Palm Beach, FL) - Belt Buckle Death Sentence, Asspiss, Rad Company
8:00pm, free, 18+

A kegger *and* a fundraiser? GdeN knows how to organize the masses.

Friday, January 8 2010
GdeN House (1021 SW 5th St, Miami, FL) - Eztorbo Social, Baker Acted
8:00pm, $5, ?

I've never been to Harvey's By The Bay, but this lineup is full of bands I don't see often in Miami (aside from the obvious). Probably worth checking out.

Harvey's By The Bay (6445 Northeast 7th Avenue, Miami, FL) - To Be Hated, Andrew Sansac's Band, Dead Dead Bird, Space Between Words, White Widow
10:00pm, ?, ?

update Also on Friday is a little punk, little rockabilly, all-out fun Elvis tribute show. From a punk cover band and hellbilly group i've never seen to a newish surf-metal band, sounds like an interesting night. If you've never had a fried banana and peanut butter sandwich I highly recommend you go (or head on down to Memphis and try one!).

Churchill's Pub (5501 NE 2nd Ave, Miami, FL) - The Gutter Queens, Gringo Starr, Rockit To Russia, Celine And The Hellbillies, The Gutter Queens
9:00pm, $5, 18+
