A week ago I went off to Daily Grind to check out some punk rock. On the bill were local combos Slim and Popular and Acid OD, with The Strapones from Switzerland en route to a series of gigs in Cuba. Alas it seems the Daily Grind can't really turn up the volume these days, and the show came to an abrupt halt before they had a chance to hit the stage. Acid OD started things off with some masked action.
Does this count as a horn section?
The whole lot!
On to a very short set from Slim and Popular, who got in one song before the venue pulled the plug.
And, er, that's it! Things were just a bit too loud, notwithstanding Lars' complaint that the volume on his bass rig was "between zero and one." The Strapones did get to play later after things moved over to a nearby basement.
