This year our annual RVA Punx Picnic Fest changed its name to Fight Back Fest. I always look forward to this weekend’s great selection of new and known bands. There is always a good focus on the d-beat, crust punk side of things, with some great surprises and many old friends.
Last year, Alement from Philadelphia blew me away and I was stoked for the chance to see them again. True to my expectations—Alement remain my new favorite band! For anyone into the old U.K. crust punk style of bands like Axegrinder and the Amebix, Alement deliver the axebeats to perfection!
