Are you sick of being responsible? Does it annoy you to have to follow rules or be pro-social? Do you like basements? Well, if you are a goofy, degenerate weirdo who doesn't quite fit in anywhere else, you might consider our city's hardcore/punk shows.Your underlying anger problems can be brought out to their fullest potential (in a positive way). These are my recommendations for great local and national bands that don't play five-minute (marathon!) songs or remind you about drink specials. General rule of thumb: If you have five bucks and can show up by 9 pm., then it's go time in the pit. One, Two, Fuck You!
Gas Rag(CHI)/Lumpy and The Dumpers/Liquor Lord @ Ask A Punk December 18 9 p.m. | $5
Chicago's Gas Rag is coming down to give us all a reason to slam out aggression about the Cubs, toasted ravioli, Illinois drivers and other useless crap that never mattered because nothing has/does/or ever will matter. What better way to celebrate the joke that is existence than acting like a complete moron in a basement that you have hunt down the address for. Gas Rag is one of the best hardcore bands in the country, let alone from one of our storied rivals. Come tell Liquor Lord to change its name and yell for a Sheer Terror cover. Face the meat in the sex pit!
