For the last few years, The Quesadilla Factory was home to many fantastic pop-punk and hardcore shows. However, the time has come for the venue to closedown, but that doesn't mean that they're not going to go out without a bang. The Story So Far, Downpresser, and more will be playing the venue's final show. Only 200 pre-sale tickets will be available on July 4th. More information can be found on the venue's Facebook page.
What we get in punk these days is the “anti-anti”: Someone comes up with something, then the next generation is against that, and then the next generation is against that, and then that thing becomes a problem. There's these layers of anti-, and so many of them are just so self-serving. It's not about larger freedom. Laura Jane Grace and Against Me! are one of the only punk rock things I've seen in years. And that's what [The Next Four Years] is about, starting with "Serious Business" as a joke about careerism and privilege and how blind we all are. All these songs are set up as jokes, and the...

Vinny Vegas released their album The Big White Whaleon vinyl yesterday, but I'd be lying if I said that the album hasn't been dominating my iTunes for weeks. Reminiscent of the music I grew up loving here on AP.net, The Big White Whale is an emotionally charged and nostalgic album that's relatable throughout. Take a listen to the entire album here and head to the replies to watch an exclusive acoustic video of "Last of the Lung Benders." Enjoy!
Titus Andronicus' "press conference" last night proved to be frontman Patrick Stickles talking for two hours about his favorite 7" singles and his obsession with the number 7, but there was also some news. The band will launch a series of seven 7" singles, beginning July 7 with a re-release of 2007's "Titus Andronicus" b/w "Fear And Loathing In Mahwah, New Jersey." The band will play a show in Brooklyn to celebrate that, where all attendees will get a free copy of the 2x7" release. The second 7" is due out August 25, and you can hear a new song from that called "Stranded (On My Own)" in the replies, along with the video of the full press conference. The 7" series is available for...
The Denver Post writes that Riot Fest's Denver stop (scheduled for Sept. 19-21) could be in trouble this year. People from the town where it's held complained at an open house / community forum about noise (one man said he had to close his windows!), drug use, traffic and other "nasty things."
The future of Riot Fest in Colorado, held for the first time in the state last year at May Farms near Byers, remains uncertain as Arapahoe County officials wrestle with whether to allow the event to continue this year. No decision on the event's future was made Tuesday evening.
Those who packed the American Legion Hall in this small, rural town 40 miles east of Denver to address the Arapahoe...
