INTERVIEW: Just Dave from Portland crust kings Nux Vomica on punks, preachers and 24/7 anxiety
Melodic death metal, crust, d-beat, black metal, doom, post-metal … It doesn’t really matter how you label Nux Vomica because it’s pretty much impossible to adequately describe their wayfaring sound in terms of genre alone. Yeah we went for crust in this headline, but that was more of a convenient adjective, headline shorthand, and in no way intended to be a definitive adjective.

Hi, Dave!
Very cool… we (the ubik.we) have played with Nux Vomica and many, many of Dave’s other bands.  We’ve crashed on his living room floor more than once, rode bikes around Portland with him, visited him at work…
that sort of thing.  It’s awesome to see him and Nux Vomica represented well here.

Tacos! at Waid’s APR 2014
David Choe (aka Invisible Hour, Isay Meow) is the best photographer of rock bands in Seattle. Here are some photos of Tacos at Waid’s from Friday (4/11/2014). Check out all his photos here.
I spend a lot of time taking photos of bands, and I wish mine looked this cool.

Nice…
This was a really good show, and I’d never been to Waid’s before.  Turns out, with Capitol Hill becoming increasingly gentrified, there’s more stuff happening to the south… in Haitian restaurants.

As usual, I really don’t know much about the touring bands, but the locals… no matter how the New Hampshire black metal band turns out, the locals are worth the price of admission.

Ad For Drummer Personally Attacks Old Drummer

WENATCHEE, WA—While announcing the group’s search for a new drummer, an ad posted in a music shop Wednesday by local post-hardcore band Machu Picchu appeared to attack both the character and abilities of its last drummer. “Band seeks drummer who can actually keep the beat and show up to practice without fucking complaining about it all the time,”

I know every time we repost something with Chuck Norris on it, another dollar gets donated to teaching the bible in public schools.
I’ll have to go badger the kids at the Evangelical Christian college around the corner to regain equilibrium, but… I love this too much.

If Famous Rock Bands Had Kept Their Original Band Names [via]

Nice

I grew up on the fucking Sex Pistols, Minor Threat, and motherfucking Crass. I’m never, ever gonna put down my sword… but it is a blunt sword, it is a rubber sword— it’s a nonviolent revolution. That’s what I’m about.

Ah, well… I’m not in Tacoma, but if I were…

This Saturday (4/12/2014), Brothers of the Sonic Cloth, Argonaut, and Old Iron will be in Tacoma!
This is the the first Brothers of the Sonic Cloth show since last fall. Word on the street is, their record is done and will be out later this year. And I heard they already have plans to start working on new recordings. BOTSC and Old Iron are also playing again on Sunday in Olympia.
