LAST DAY OF PUNK IN SAN FRANCISCO SATURDAY 9/26

reviews

If you are outta control, here is your Final Warning for Salvation. This past week has been the San Francisco Punk Renaissance Festival (with a lectures at the San Francisco Library, an Art Show & Multimedia Mega-Party at Public Works, and last night’s insane concert at the Minna Gallery). If you weren’t at the Minna Gallery last night you missed out. Alice Bag read from her books and played a concert with her bilingual, all-girl rock band. The Deadbeats (featuring GEZA X) closed the night. It was the Deadbeats first time playing in San Francisco. GEZA X and the band were in fine form with numerous costume changes, and songs that haven’t aged since they were originally recorded nearly forty years ago. San Francisco needs more GEZA X…

These past few days have been the perfect precursor for the magic that is today (September 26, 2016). TODAY IS WHEN THE REAL PARTY STARTS!

2:00-2:40 No Alternative

2:55- 3:35 VKTMS


3:50-4:35 Drunk Injuns

4:50 – 5:30 The Lewd


5:35 – 6:15 Spoken Word:
5:35-5:50 Michael Stewart Foley
5:50-6:00 Linda XYZ
6:00-6:15 Patrick O’Neil

6:35-7:35 The Mutants: THE MUTANTS ARE TEENAGE NEWS’ FAVORITE BAND. They are all over Issue #2. Their sole release, “Fun Terminal,” hits you with sonic bits of bliss from every direction. They were a highly original art band; like a more perfect B-52’s with an edge and a genuine Punk and artistic drive. They have three lead singers, two guitarists, pop sensibilities, and punk lyrics (“Business people with long hair/hiding plastic things everywhere/recording shows while they’re not there/once they’ve got it, they don’t care”). Their only album, “Fun Terminal,” is a neglected classic that could have made San Francisco the art-punk powerhouse it deserved to be.

7:50 – 8:50 Frightwig and Alice Bag with Frightwig: Frightwig were the true pioneers in women-punk. They were a major catalyst behind the Riot Girl Movement. You have probably seen the picture of Kurt Cobain wearing their band shirt. They are playing their own gig, and one night they are backing up Alice Bag (LA), formerly of the Bags, another mover and shaker who gave Chicano-Rock a face in Punk music.

 

9:05-9:35 Special Recognition: Awards

9:50-10:45 The Avengers: The Avengers played the Sex Pistols’ last show. They are fronted by Penelope Houston who has endured the San Francisco music scene since her Avengers’ days. The Avengers were a teenage-punk band with political goals.

11:00-12:00 PM Cheetah Chrome: Cheetah Chrome gained his initial notoriety when he was in the Dead Boys. The Dead Boys were a legendary CBGB Punk band that showed any boy with a dream can create something that endures.

  1. I was at Cub Minna, something came up to prevent me from attending the final night at the Verdi club. I loved Geza X, I loved seeing Verna, Mattx, Jen Lohman, Krystal from Galaxxy Chamber, John Binkov, and everyone else whose names allude me right now. I met someone though, who said I was an ” angel”? Anyone hnow who this was ? He had a beard and was quite charming. Any way, thanks to every darnned one of you for putting together the best bands to represent the punk scene. Are there any more posters availabe, both of them, for sale? Thank you.. I haven’t felt this alive since the ’80s, so now I go back to the life I now live, filled with stress, demands, and so much loneliness. I spend 18- 20 hours in a small room of my creation shutting out the anger and verbal abuse I seem to have brought upon myself due to becoming celibate through no fault of mine. My priorities and needs changed to music only, which I get a miniscule amount of any more. Any comments are welcome to help me survive these last days filled with fear and depression. Perhaps someone has one or more magical words to make my pitiful existance worrth continuing.
    Keep rocking…..Never stop……LOVE TO ALL
