Last Night: OFF! & Negative Approach at Warehouse Live

off 3 sept21.jpg
And loud and aggressive though they may be, OFF!'s show is a cheerful affair. In a scene often noted for its short-lived successes, the band is a pleasant reminder that not all hardcore icons need burn out or fade away. Even when surrounded by punks young and old looking to burn off the frustrations of another workweek, there was still more energy crackling onstage than, er, off.

Personal Bias: Registered voter.

The Crowd: Young, flip-brimmed scenesters and graying survivors.

Overheard In the Crowd: "They played the first song and I took a full beer to the back, man."

Random Notebook Dump: The Dynamo stadium brings a lot of folks looking for good times to East Downtown on game nights. As I was leaving the club, a car loaded with girls who clearly had no idea who OFF! or Negative Approach were rolled down their windows to ask me who was playing. It definitely wasn't my looks that intrigued them.

Craig you should check out Brannon and Richardson's other band "Easy Action" asap. They are amazing. I recommend the song Friends of Rock and Roll as a starter. Also, Richardson always plays with his back to the crowd. I believe he is the trend starter on that one.
