Tonight in Rock: Punked at The Smell
There's only one place hardcore enough to host a night bands tonight and that's The Smell in downtown. After all, it is their 10-Year Anniversary Series.
Tonight is all variations of punk.
Others on the set list include the powerpop punked Ima Gymnist, the female led punk thrash band -- Vomit Bomb -- self-deemed "thee worst band in America," Party Fowl, and the dinful thrashings of Apathetic Ronald Mcdonald (nice name).
