The Dwarves: Live at Le Poisson Rouge

The Dwarves tore up New York’s fancy Le Poisson Rouge a few months back, when they performed with The Queers in front of a packed room of elderly punk rockers. It’s been refreshing to see Blag Dahlia and his new band of misfits performing full sets, instead of the 10 minute frantic affairs that they have become notorious for. In case you missed the show, here’s “Let’s Get High and Fuck Some Sluts,”...

Weston {Live at Highline Ballroom}

Weston Highline Ballroom July 6, 2011 Weston was one of those bands that should have been huge. They had the sound of Blink 182, the lyrics of Green Day, and the look of Sugar Ray.

So when the band’s singer, Jim Lindberg, threw in the...

Zoli Teglas: A Pennywise Interview

When word dropped a few months back that Ignite front man Zoli Teglas would be picking the vocal reigns for Pennywise I got a excited.

While it is sad to see Jim Lindberg leave Pennywise, Zoli is hands down the best real singer in punk rock today. I don’t think anyone can match...

Bad Religion: Video Portrait

Last month, I got to do yet another interview with Jay Bentley, legendary bassist of punk’s elder statesmen Bad Religion. Sure, this is the third time I’ve posted Jay in the digital and physical pages of Life In A Bungalo, but would you turn down an interview with one of the most charismatic punks rockers of our time. Jay expounds on the anniversary of “Stranger Than Fiction,” the economy, and what it’s...
