Punk Rock Swap Meet

Punk Rock Swap Meet
Featuring Circle One, Killroy, Glue Gun, Sorry State and Public Nuisance
Knights of Columbus Council 3601, Canoga Park, CA
Saturday, January 9, 2016
Time: 4:00 PM

This was one of the most entertaining afternoons I have spent in a long while. It was an all-star show mixed in with a swap meet (I guess you figured out how it got its name), with a bit of a family reunion mixed in. Records, T-shirts and paintings all for sale at reasonable rates.

Public Nuisance

Public Nuisance

Public Nuisance went on first and put on a real good set. Good old-fashioned punk rock.

Sorry State

Sorry State

The second band of the night was Sorry State. They were a great straightforward punk band. The crowd loved them. I dug them too.

Glue Gun

Glue Gun

The third band of the day was Glue Gun. They are a really enjoyable band. Vocalist Bob Oedy has great stage presence. The band was joined onstage by Gizz Lazlo as co-vocalist. Great set.

Killroy

Killroy

The fourth act of the day was Killroy. I had seen them live once or twice before. The band puts on a great show. Nothing half-assed here, a real 1980’s underground punk-rock feel to their music. Killroy provides an adrenaline-charged set with some powerful vocals.

Nowadays, it’s rare to see a band that can maintain that kind of energy level throughout their entire set. Most tend to die down mid-set.

Circle One

Circle One

Circle One’s provided an all-star set, original members Mike Vallejo, Danny Dorman and Jody Hill were in top form. They have a fairly new singer, whose name I didn’t catch, did a great job of engaging the crowd.

If you were there you had fun if you weren’t there – you wish you were.

This, by far, was the best evening I have spent in a long time.

The next Punk Rock Swap Meet is scheduled for July 16, 2016, come one out.
