as the temperatures are rising, the weather is getting hot and the bands are getting hotter, it is only wise to reduce the needless preludes and cut to the chase to avoid sticking to the keyboard after a while. Here we go.
06/04/2010 – Cobra Skulls w/ C.Aarmé – Schokoladen
“Fat signed the Cobra”, that would be a great title for the next full-length of Reno, NV Punk Rock act the Cobra Skulls, who most recently signed to Punk flagship Fat Wreck Chords. As a new album isn’t expected to be released until first quarter 2011, I had to prepare myself for their concert this summer with their 2009 smash album “American Rubicon”, which made my winners’ podium last year. Speaking for myself, this band embodies the things I like in Punk Rock like no other; fast and short tunes with great lyrics, great humor, political ambitions and a touch of Folk. I was excited to see them play live no nine months after their last show in Berlin, so close to the deceased venue “local” where they played last time.
