The Vibrators and Circle One, My Review of Their Show Last Night on LA Weekly Music!

I still can’t believe I am actually “working” punk rock shows! Nonetheless…cheers! Enjoy my review of the epic show last night up on LA Weekly’s Music Blog, West Coast Sound.

The Vibrators and Circle One
The Airliner

Better than: Going to Artwalk!

You know it’s going to be a decent show when the parking lot behind the venue is packed with a bunch of tailgating teenage punks. There were more than twenty cars last night at The Airliner, whose occupants were drinking and doing other things, preparing themselves for The Vibrators.

I sneaked away after a few craft beers myself..

…The UK charm-punk band that hit the top 40 charts in 1977 pleased everybody with their British-accented lyrics. They jumped right into their sing along oldies-but-goodies, like “Pure Mania,” “Whip’s and Furs,” and “Troops of Tomorrow,” mixing in newer stuff of course.

I was a little curious to see how the classic punk band would sound without their original vocalist Knox, since he officially left the band just earlier this year. No one seemed to really care that…

Also, I will try to include a couple of extra bits and bonus info when your read it on my blog. What’s the exclusive tidbit for this post? Hmm….well, The Airliner has an open kitchen that serves gourmet fries all night long! Veggie tempura fries with Wasabi Aioli? Hell yeah!

Ohh yeeah, I discovered that I write best (i.e. don’t over-think, therefore way faster!) when I am a little buzzed. Those craft beers happened to be a sampler 12 pack from Red Hook Brewery, plus I took a little mini shot of some Jager, haha.

Drinking and writing is so much fun!

The Vibrators and Circle One Live at The Airliner Tonight!

For the vintage UK ’77 punk rock lovers out there, The Vibrators are playing tonight at The Airliner in Highland Park!
And for the not so vintage punk rock lovers but California Hardcore lovers of punk, Circle One will be there opening up!

That’s right, the creators of “Baby, Baby, Baby”, the punk rock love anthem basically, are gonna be performing it live tonight. A pretty random match up, right? Sweet nonetheless.

The best part? The Vibrators are breaking the recent trend of punk bands playing at mainstream venues through Ticketmaster, meaning, it is only $10 to get in tonight! Cheers to keeping it punk!

I will be “working” tonight and covering the show for LA Weekly so see you guys there!

Here are a couple of singles from them both.
