All In Good Time Reaction
March 19th, 2022 I attended a local punk show. Attendees crowded the park up against the outdoor stages, scoping out the vendors and watching the skate competition take place. It felt like I was living in a Suicidal Tendencies music video. Sixteen bands, two stages all playing one right after another. No breaks.
It started off on the “lighter” side of the punk show, but as the sun started to settle down, The show took off with blazing fast hardcore punk riffs and circle pits. Loud, fast and scary. Once the sun disappeared completely, the lights for the stages came on and it gave the show more of a “warped tour” feel, except obviously a lot more aggressive. Anthems of troubled neighborhoods and a corrupt society blared through the speakers. Nothing could stop this train.
Bands from every corner seemed to be there. Vegas punk bands like Sick Sense, Horripilation and Soldiers Of Destruction ripped up the stage doing the Vegas scene justice. As well as local favorites Talking Bombs showing the crowd that the Bullhead City, AZ music scene is still alive and kicking! All killer, no filler.
All in all, the event did its job. Exceeded most of the crowds expectations, infuding my own. If you get the chance, I recommend catching any of these bands live and coming out the (hopefully) next All In Good Time.
