D.O.A. w/ Scheisse Minelli & Deathjocks (Punkrock)
@ Immerhin; 8:30pm
“D.O.A.’s sound, although always rooted in punk rock, has managed to create a fair bit of consternation for those who would like to choose musical boxes. It’s punk, but it incorporates rock n’ roll, reggae, metal, and ska. Whatever the hell their sound is, it’s pulled out a "Yeah, that’s the shit!" from the likes of Henry Rollins, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sonic Youth, Jello Biafra, Bif Naked, John Doe, Randy Bachman, Dave Grohl, Pete Seeger, Yada, Yada, Yada, you get the picture. Come join in the power and non-compromise that is D.O.A.”
