A lot of Replacements, a little Crimpshrine and a nice piece of Jawbreaker (especially Chesterfield King) go into Tiltwheel alongside the most durable fundamentals of California punktours, beers, making music to keep your shit togetherand that makes this a band that just isnt gonna just roll over and die. Singer/guitarist Davey is what they call a lifer (or at least a true believer) and has built an intensely personal discography across rare split-7s since probably the early 90s if not before; its how pop and punk used to connect before that just meant whining at high speed. A rare show from a band between cult classic and cult heroes. This week, they play with Samiam, who are similarly shaking a little more glory from the East Bay glory days.
