This show was awesome. OFF! is, of course, a sort of supergroup featuring Keith Morris, and they were really tight musically… their set was sort of made up of mini-sets punctuated by discussion by Morris on the history of punk, the bands he and his bandmates have been in before, the state of music and politics today, etc… but don’t let that fool you, it was a blast. Trash Talk was intense too, full of energy and the singer was in the crowd pretty much the whole set. Good times. Nervous Impulse, the new band from the singer of the Goons was good too.
I had never been to the venue, the Red Palace before. It was okay, a smallish show space but they had a nice beer selection and a really cute cat who lives at the bar.
