The people at Volcano are great! Anthony Neff used to DM their Dungeons and Dragons games back in the day. You think I’m kidding, ask em about it. Google some of these bands and go see em! Or not, do what you feel like, but it is free, and people will think you’re cool if you go.

There’s nothing like a good all-ages hardcore punk show! Don’t believe me?

Well it’s time to make a believer out of you.

Sunday Februrary 19th there will be a Free All-Ages Hardcore Punk Show. If you’re not down to party on a sunday night, well..then you’re just not down to party. Luckily this show starts relatively early with doors opening at 6:30pm. So even the responsible ones among you will be able to attend.

The show line-up is as follows (All genres are punk):

From what I’ve heard of these bands; this show should be standard punk. So grab your leather jacket with the studs, pre-game with a 40 in hand, and get ready to throw your body weight against complete strangers. On Sunday the 19th, it’s on.

(Print it out and pass it around)

Though this is a free show, I highly suggest bringing donations to help support both the local and touring bands. I don’t know the house rules for the venue, but I would assume that they are something along the lines of “enjoy the music, respect the house, and don’t be a dick”.

Need help getting to the venue? How about a little help from THE INTERNET.

Personally, I plan on attending this show and writing some post-show jibber-jabber. So, there’s always that to look forward to. Once again, if you have any opinions or information about these bands or this show; then don’t hesitate to tell us in a comment.

To quote Darion Conwell: “enjoy the music, respect the house, and don’t be a dick.” Fun story there, almost got kicked out of this house for being a dick. Not really my fault, I got that they wanted me to be pushing people, I didn’t choose to continue getting pushed by other people, per-say.

Anyways, I’ve already talked about white wards in a past post so I won’t re-engage ranting, but I am quite a fan. You can download their 7″ here. Likewise if you’re into death metal or  hardcore thrash death, Bone Sickness is just fucking dandy to see live. I’ve never seen the other two bands, so out of laziness I’m not going to write anything, but fuck it go anyways. I command you, all twenty-six people who may ever read this.

This coming Friday at 9pm, the Oly Music Awards is putting on a  pre-show to help showcase some good local bands. If you’re interested in local music, then this isn’t an event you want to miss. At some point after the pre-show, there will be an award ceremony to honor local bands. See more info at OlyMusicAwards.com

Line-up is as follows:

From what I’ve listened to of “Fight for Change” and “Elbow Coulee”, I would very much enjoy seeing them live. As for “Jabi Shriki”, well… he’s not exactly my genre. I had trouble finding information about the band “Point Process” online, but if I find out about the genre or find a sample of their work then I will go back and post it here. In the meantime if you know something about Point Process or any of these other bands, then please tell us.

(Print it out and share it around)

^ Look at all of those sponsors! I’m hoping to make it to this event, however if I don’t then perhaps one of our other writers would be willing to write a little blurb about it.

About the venue: I’m a big fan of Le Voyeur Cafe. Though I’m not a vegan or vegetarian, I still enjoy stopping by for a tasty sandwich when I’m out and about. The cafe also doubles as a venue for all kinds of music (except metal…not to say that they exclude metal, I’ve just never seen it there). Expect a slightly intimate show because the venue space is kind of small. Most of the shows I’ve seen at Le Voyeur have been rap, hip-hop, or electronica, so this should be a treat.

P.S. If you’re looking for something to do the day after this event, why not check out the Free Radio Olympia Valentine’s All You Can Eat Event.

Another show at The Swamp House. This one is coming up quick!  If you’re looking for something to do friday night, why not stop by and show your support for these fine bands?

Sadly, I don’t think I’ll be able to make it to this show (friday 13th I’ll be out searching for Templar Gold), but if you attend; please comment and give your opinions about the show. I do not know much about these bands, however I’ve listened to what they have available online and I can comfortably say that I like what I hear.

The line-up is as follows:

(print it out and pass it around)

General rules: Smoking outside or in the Teepee, BYOB, be responsible, don’t be a dick, park on the street. The show IS free, however donations are encouraged. Help support these local bands!

Additional info:

  • Here’s a link to the facebook event page: WOWZERS
  • Here’s a map/ directions to the venue: LOCATION
  • Doors open at 8:30.

Perhaps this isn’t your scene?

How about checking out “Mas Sol Collective Presents:Body of Art “ at The Aqua House. It promises to be night oh much art and Thalo for only a $5  *suggested* donation. Body art provided by Olympia’s very talented Ariana Throne and a team of make up, henna and hair artists.

The line up is as follows:

8pm- Crockett King
9pm- Special Guest
9:30- Thalo
10:30- Thalo and Pheno
12am- DJ G33
1am- Thalo and Pheno round 2

Once again, I know virtually nothing about these artists/ DJs.  I trust the Mas Sol Collective crowd, though. They put on a good show. However, If you have sampled their beats in the past then shoot us a comment and help fill our knowledge gap.

Link to facebook event: BWOP!

Sadly, these two shows are occurring at the same time, so you might need to make a decision between the two. Worst case scenario, you can see the show at The Swamp House and catch the last couple artists at The Aqua House.

UPDATE:

Sorry, I seem to have read the details wrong about the Mas Sol Collective show. I mentioned earlier that it was at the Midnight Sun, it is in fact at The Aqua House. The details above have been changed to reflect this.

Looks like there’s a promising house show on January 20th. Personally I am a fan of the Swamp House in Olympia. If you’ve never been, then I suggest you do…and what better opportunity than this?

The line-up is as follows:

  • MEOWTAIN (indie rock)
  • The Bat (trans-dimensional nightmare funk)
  • Greek Life 8 (experimental improvisations and journeys into the mind)
  • Sensitive Bearded Guys. Formerly known as The New Wave Discount Party Band (stone cold hits interspersed with dissonance).

I have been looking forward to seeing Meowtain after listening to their EP a few weeks ago (here is a link to one of their songs). As for the other bands, sadly I do not know anything about them; and cannot find them online. If you have insight into these bands, please post a comment and share your knowledge with us. Otherwise, you can read my post-show jibber-jabber which will be posted at a later date.

(Click the flyer to see the full sized image. Then print it out and pass it around!)

The venue is somewhat small, but the music carries through the house and outside where you have the opportunity to hang out with interesting people, and still keep an ear on the music. A cover-charge has not been announced, so it’s safe to say that this is a completely free show. The Swamp House allows smoking and drinking, however drinking should be responsible, and smoking should be contained to the porch ares and awesome Teepee that is provided. As far as I know, the general rules are: Don’t be an asshole, and enjoy the music.

You can show a little love for this local show on facebook by attending, or whoring out the event page: SOCIAL NETWORKING LINK!

For copy and paste purposes, the address is: 1407  Wheeler Ave SE, Olympia Wa 98501

Any other information can be found on the flyer above.

Hope to see you there,

UPDATE:

This show was cancelled due to bad weather and a power outage. THUS, I will not be writing any post-show jibber-jabber. Sorry for the disappointment.

Here’s a local show flyer I ran into. I know close to nothing about the bands in attendance, other than it appears to be a good mixture of genres including: Experimental/ Electronica, Pop-Punk, Metal, and Indie Rock/ Folk. Five bands for five dollars. Sounds like a good deal if you ask me.

Here’s a demo from Drive Thru Junkies:

Baaaaaaahhh! Bobby! Get Away from my Propane!

Along with the flyer, I also present to you the facebook event page so you can “Attend” and look cool for your friends: SHAZAM!

BUT, if you’re serious about attending (excuse me if I’m a little jaded. I’ve had bad experiences with shows promoted on facebook) then all you really is to google map the directions and check out the venue. Oh, what’s this? A link to the venue information? I think so: VENUE-TASTIC!

Don’t forget your five bucks…
