Jello Biafra & The Guantanamo School Of Medicine - Live At Riot Fest 2010

Riot Fest is a (mostly) punk music festival that was born in Chicago in 2005. It has since spread to other cities. This weekend I've got a couple live sets from the 2010 weekend.

First up we go from the Dead Kennedy's Wednesday all the way to the other end of Jello Biafra's career. Jello & The G.S.M. started some time in the late aughts and I believe they're still active today. If you haven't heard them yet their overall sound won't surprise you. But I strongly suggest you give it a listen. It's pretty damn good in my opinion.

Dead Kennedy's - Live At The Earth Tavern, Portland, OR 11.19.79

Wanna hear something depressing. This show happened 35 years ago today. THIRTY FIVE!!!! Damn we're getting old! Anyway, here's Jello and the boys doing what they do best. It's actually two shows from their 1979 trip to Portland. One for the kiddies and one for the grown ups. Jello is of course his obnoxiously clever self. Highly entertaining and good quality too. I just found out you can actually see video of at least the early show on youtube. Just search. Sorry I don't have the link. Link in comments.

Alternative Tentacles can prevent us from posting their DK releases, but they can't stop the bootlegs. At least I don't think so. Can they? Guess we'll find out.

Agnostic Front - Live At CBGB

Now let's focus on East Coast bad asses. Agnostic Front did a pretty good job of epitomizing the New York street tough persona. They busted out some pretty good tunes too. I always enjoyed seeing them live. This high powered set was released in 1989.

Suicidal Tendences - Live At The Cathay De Grande 09.16.83

Since we were talking Venice mofos we might as well go straight to the top of the food chain. Here's Suicidal Tendencies in 1983. The sound quality is a bit rough but hell, so were they!

Neighborhood Watch - Reunion Show At The Anti Club, LA, CA 1992

Venice, Ca was the home of some bad mo-fos. Neighborhood Watch was among them. They only released one EP back in 1983 then were gone. However they got back together for an evening of fun back in 1992 at the Anti Club. And I believe they released some new stuff in 2013. And here I am begging again. Can anyone help the good doctor out... again!

Angry Samoans - Live At Rhino Records

As the 70's turned to the 80's the Angry Samoans decided to speed things up for a couple years, releasing a couple hardcore classics. Before that they cranked out some fun and obnoxious punk. This release, although from 1990, was recorded in 1979 and presents the band in all their fun and obnoxious punk glory.
