Scheduled to perform on Saturday, November 19 to celebrate the new AZPunk release
Neckbeard's in Tempe
Punk's not dead, and thanks to the booming local music site AZPunk, it's not exploited, either. AZPunk.comp Volume 4 offers equal-opportunity aggression from a mind-boggling 37 bands from across the Valley and such far-flung punk enclaves as Tuba City and Yuma. In almost 75 minutes of music, there's old-school anarchy, pissed-off hardcore, Motörhead-spawned thrash, and even some melodic chaos, perhaps spun with a ska bounce or a rockabilly twang. A few of the acts from Volume 3 make encores, but there are plenty of comp first-timers here, and new blood is always good. Ah, so many different ways to say "fuck you" -- to that, we say, "Fuck yeah."
