Green Day at Madison Square Garden

Green Day/Kaiser Chiefs Madison Square Garden July 27, 2009 Click to view more photos from show Thousands of fans packed NYC’s biggest venue for two evenings of stellar punk rock courtesy of a band heralded as this generation’s U2, and judging by the audience reaction at MSG, the band is more than worthy of the moniker.

The Damned: Live at the Fillmore

The Damned, The BelRays, Electric Frankenstein Fillmore at Irving Plaza May 14, 2009 It’s sad to say, but the number of living legends from the early part of  punk history is dwindling rather quickly.

H2O “Nothing to Prove”

H2O “Nothing To Prove” Bridge 9 Records H2O have returned after a very long hiatus and their fans couldn’t be luckier. Clocking in at just under 30 minutes, “Nothing to Prove” is a potent melding of power punk and mid-90s hardcore, lacking any macho posturing and soaked with infectiously catchy tunes.
