STREET JAIL: Self-titled: LP

Sep 29, 2020

This is a five piece satirical band from Seattle that runs the gamut of punk and its adjacent genres. Made up of members from bands such as Tartar Control, Burn Burn Burn, and FCON to name a few, these guys each come with a lengthy musical resume. The best way I can describe them is as if the website The Hard Times was put to song. I’ve seen these guys play a show as Boy Scouts complete with a pitched tent, campfire, and advice on what to do when you see a snake. I’ve seen them play as Santa and elves as they passed out wrapped gifts to good little punks in between songs. They know how to have a good ass time and write some silly and awesome songs to play while doing so. Their song “Connor (Was the Coolest Mother Fucker in the 8th Grade)” is so great and I can’t wait to scream it along with my friend Connor at a goofy live show one day. Sample lyrics: “Sadie Hawkins dance, Connor said FUCK THAT!” They dip their toes into metal, ska, hardcore, and all over the punk pool of subgenres, yet it never feels disjointed. I love a good schtick and this one is not only awesome, but the music is rad too. –Kayla Greet (Tiny Dragon)
