In The Loop: 8/15/09. Crafting Punk Zombies



Hello punk rock enthusiasts! Made my way over to Urban Lounge last night to catch the SLUG Localized show. Not just your average punk show, a good punk show, little bits of the ska thrown in, dancing and mild moshing. Gotta throw some respect to a band willing to put an accordion into the mix. Here's a shot of Dubbed!

--- Speaking of SLUG, Craft Lake City was fun as hell. Good numbers of people showing up in droves to browse and buy a many different artworks and crafts, plus the performing acts. Very awesome showing, good amount of strange mixed in with jewelry and collages. I'd say more, but this was more of an event you had to go experience.

On music I myself caught the majority of Cub Country as a full ensemble, and the short set from the reunited Subrosa. Catch some of their shows before they head out on a western US tour!

Then Sunday the zombies were in full force. You know what rocks about a walk? The fact that there are no closed streets and no police presence. Gotta love the looks of drivers not knowing what the hell is going on. Special props to the Living Resistance on the corner of 7th East and 5th South, arming themselves to the tooth with squirt guns and water balloons to fend off the tide.

Coming up over the next few weeks from me will be some band interviews, a chat with Ori Hoffer, Ultra Clothing, as well as a visit to Stroll and a few other things. Summer is still up in the air for things I'm doing too, so we'll see what happens.
