SNFU, The Meatmen, My New Vice, Mr. Plow, Nihilist Cunt
320 SE 2nd Ave.
[DINOSAURS] If there was a “classic” pop-punk sound, SNFU would be one of its figureheads. The much maligned sub-genre, though, is experiencing something of a renaissance, as this onetime Epitaph band issued a new disc last year, Never Trouble Trouble Until Trouble Troubles You. All its hallmarks are still in place: ridiculously fast tempos, vaguely metallic guitar and lyrics that fall just short of profundity. Tesco Vee’s Meatmen also recently returned to the studio for its first new album in almost two decades, Savage Sagas. In almost two decades. Luckily, neither group displays signs of significant maturation.
