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.

If you go, make sure you hear the easy listening punk sounds of Portland's Magic Johnson and quite good experimental punk of NASA Space Universe.

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).
