I wish I was around back then... Hell I wish there were venues like the metroplex around now. I left a big ass comment regarding the punk scene on the cover story but if you have a chance please check my band out (myspace.com/apobmusic).
I hate to throw the plug out there but I happen to be in a current atlanta punk band (myspace.com/apobmusic). We've been talking lately about whether or not the current scene is even worth us pushing forward and trying to get ourselves out there. I had just gotten off the phone with a friend talking about it when i walked by the creative loafing box and saw this headline. It seems like a lot of folks regard the scene as dead but there are a lot of us (for example: APOB, Karbomb, and Celerity) making an effort to revive things. I wish people wouldn't be so fatalistic, because there are tons of people I have met that still love punk. It's just a matter or organizing these people... Which has proved to be a huge pain in the ass especially considering a lot of the bigger underground venues are going under. Anyway... I will most likely be at the show on saturday promoting our band. Props on the article.
