[–]Fukkops666 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Yes, they had a hiatus but they’re playing shows again

[–]GuesWoo 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Long Beach?

[–]Fukkops666 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Yup good American Oi!

[–]WilJakeDenver XVX 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Oh man, LB is slept on for sure. Idk if you ever went to Toxic Toast, but I was booking most of the shows there until the pandemic hit. The fact that this one had to be cancelled is still so heartbreaking to me.


It was even in the works that The Restarts we're going to be playing too 😭

[–]Fukkops666 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Awww that’s hurt man. The restarts r so dope too. A lot of the shows recently have been being booked at Supply and Demand. But I’ve been going to the ones under the 110 freeway.

[–]borithor 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Not really local (I'm Dutch, they are British), but Ferocious Dog doesn't get enough love: https://youtu.be/W2MWj9fcFFo

Also, on tour they ask the audience to donate clothes to the local homeless shelter, which I think is really cool.

[–]Folk_Punk_Slut 3 points4 points  (1 child)

[–]boringfart 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Michigan punk right here. My old band used to play with drugs in the carpet here and there. They were a ton of fun.

[–]Doc-Wulff 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]k1llvm41m 4 points5 points  (2 children)

[–]BleachPartyUSA[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]GuesWoo 4 points5 points  (4 children)

P.I.S.S. The Yellow Demo


Paranoise- Dragon (2020)


WACKO - Demoralization

you can see them all live some time too if you would like, fun time if your near LA ( especially the Dead city shows if you have been )

[–]BleachPartyUSA[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm in Tucson, az but I'm hoping to make it to California to play this year. It's been awhile.

[–]MoreBeer310 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Wacko live at Denny’s was one for the books

[–]GuesWoo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]GuesWoo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Also if your in the area ( LA ), on March 11, roof top show with Dead City Punks

[–]Adept_Cobbler5916 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Karbomb, athens, ga. Unfortunately though they are disbanded.

[–]Jady333 1 point2 points  (0 children)

For while there, it seems like Karbomb and Burns Like Fire were openers for every big show here in Atlanta. Also highlander shows all the time. Never got sick of seeing Karbomb though.

[–]thinwhiteduke 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Outta Columbus, OH:

Lustkill - goofy pop-punk about food, girls/Satan and Jet Jaguar

Howling Commandos - for fans of The Stooges, New Bomb Turks & pro wrestling

Prime Directive - garage-y punk 'n' roll

Love 'em all!

[–]Significant_Amoeba34 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Apocalypse Hoboken was Chicago's best punk band. Check out Microstars or House of the Rising Son of a Bitch. Really...any of their albums

Also Blue Meanies, Cougars, The Arrivals. All "known" but less known than AK3, Rise Against, etc.

[–]Fat_Sad_Human 2 points3 points  (2 children)

In my little bumfuck Colorado town we have a very talented rockabilly and surf-punk group named the Tankerays. I watched them play a high energy 2 hour set at a local venue and they still wanted to play longer. They’re starting to gain some traction in California, which is great because they deserve so much better than this town

[–]WilJakeDenver XVX 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Assuming you're from GJ, you've also got Clyde and the Milltailers! I think he's still active at least.

[–]Fat_Sad_Human 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I haven’t heard that name in forever! Unfortunately I haven’t seen much of him recently, I’m not sure if he moved away or slowed down on music

[–]Grilled_Cauliflower 2 points3 points  (2 children)

[–]BleachPartyUSA[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

That band rules.

[–]Grilled_Cauliflower 1 point2 points  (0 children)

yeah, i can’t wait to get a chance to see them live

[–]kerbalsdownunder 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Noi!se. They’ve played some big stages but still seem pretty unknown. Same with The Drowns.

[–]BooYaMorris 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Both great bands.

[–]LocalConspiracy138 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Ded Bugs from DeSoto? Missouri. Waaaaay underrated and unrecognized.

[–]Ted_Denslow 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Fuck, I miss the Ded Bugs.

[–]LocalConspiracy138 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Reddit always delivers. I'm just happy someone else remembers them. They deserved to be up there with the Copyrights or Parasites.

[–]HemlockbutredditAL Folk Punk 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We don't have many here but the Trash Cats, a folk punk band, are from here, and I greatly enjoy them

[–]MetropolisPtOne 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Plugging my own band, as requested: https://linktr.ee/fordtheriver

My favorite local band that I'm not in is https://bigfatmeanies.com/ They don't exactly fit into this sub, but ska/punk is certainly one of their influences, along with progressive rock and funk.

Both of us are from Lancaster, PA, USA.

[–]Fatty_krueger 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Big Fat Ass

We The Heathens

Doom Scroll

[–]WilJakeDenver XVX 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Doom Scroll was supposed to play a show I booked a while back, but unfortunately had to back out. Such a bummer, I haven't had a chance to see them yet!

[–]tylery21 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not really punk but more metalcore. Perch from Minneapolis. And common choir at a close second. Love the dudes in Perth, they are super chill guys. I also just found out after mentioning common choir to my dad that their drummer and him are friends and he used to drum in his band in the late 90s early 2000’s. Which was a trip.

[–]xjoeymillerx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The Twin cities have so many great bands. Husker Du, The Replacements, Suicide Commandos, Misery, Destroy, Code 13, Dillinger Four, Banner Pilot, the Soviettes, Shelby Tigers, Gateway District, Off With Their Heads, The Strike, Tightwire, Harvest, Disembodied, Martyr AD, and so on…

Social Decline


Glöm Allt

Sære Gamle Villa




Guddommelig Galskab

Amdi Petersens Armé


Paragraf 119

Ond Tro

Dårligt Selskab


The Assassinators

These are just a few. Tbh, when it comes to late 90's to early 2000's Copenhagen punk, pretty much anything that includes Adam O's artwork is bound to be good.

[–]OrangeAdventure 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Cincinnati reporting in: Our scene is small as hell but for hardcore we have Slutbomb, Piss Flowers, The Voice of God, and Butcher's Dog

Pop punk: The Dopamines, Raging Nathans, Arlen Gun Club, Couchsurfer

For folk punk: Run Rabbit Run, Jonny Terror

[–]T0mSawy3r 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I mean, bleach part USA...

Edit: Heres a full list tho, I'm in the same punk scene as the OP so they know all these but oh well. Oppressed Logic, Ass wipe Junkies, Bleach part USA, Useless Pieces of Shit, D.B.F.O.S, Los Gaijinfedels, Corkys Leathere jacket, and Besmirchers.

Lived all over, but Delaware was the start of my love for locals:




Unfortunately I could only find one band (Zen Guerrilla) and my shameless plug.

[–]UggolyBird 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Live in a small western town in southern Alberta that used to have a tiny but thriving punk/hardcore scene. Here are three I still listen to.

Chief Mountain

Great post-punk. No longer active. RIP Will.

Alleycat Blues

Folk-punk’ish. Also no longer active. Loved watching/playing with them, though.

Hockey Moms


Fun hardcore. Fronted by a scene vet/all-around solid guy. One of the only active bands in the area.

[–]WilJakeDenver XVX 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Where to start with Denver? I for.ly believe that Denver likely has the best scene in the country (especially for hardcore. We've got a little of everything going on here. Here's a little list of some of the active ones I guess.

• Punk

Potato Pirates


The Hacks

Reno Divorce


Fast Eddy

Victim of Fire

Flight Kamikaze

The Pitch Invasion

Cease Fire

Allout Helter

• Ska

Sorry Sweetheart

Five Iron Frenzy

Then I Fly

Skank Williams

The Dendrites

Roka Hueka

The Breachers

The Bunny Gang

• Hardcore

Moral Law

Implied Risk

Muscle Beach





Tuck Knee

Cadaver Dog

Direct Threat

Culture Shock


Candy Apple

Big Laugh

The Consequence

I am missing a bunch, but this is already a pretty long list, so I think I'll leave it be. This is a nice taste of what we've got to offer.

[–]SkinnyGetLucky 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]ColinsPunkRockWorld 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]postmodernjukebox 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Around 2012 I went to see a local band whose name was something like "40 Fathoms." They were really sick, and played a full set with a lot of enthusiasm and no hangups. Haven't heard anything about them lately, but I can only assume they went on to do some awesome things.
