OFF! at Fader Fort (by Jason House)
Off!

OFF! completed their NYC invasion with a three-day stint of reportedly raucous shows at a packed out Europa on 10/21, Generation Records on 10/22, and at Fader Fort on 10/23. I attended Europa and caught the tail end of Cerebral Ballzy and the entire 20+ minute OFF! set which was, exactly how I like my hardcore: brutal, unrelenting, lightning fast, and intensely fun. Fans of Circle Jerks, Black Flag, and early 80s hardcore take note, these guys rule.

OFF! currently has two dates on their calendar though none on the east coast. November 7th will see the band play Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin (tickets) while two+ weeks later the band will appear at Vacation Vinyl in Los Angeles for an in-store.

OFF! performed their entire first EP (of four) on Carson Daly on 10/15 (before CMJ). Dig on video of that, some video from Europa courtesy of ((unartig))), and lots of pictures from Europa, Fader Fort, and Generation Records, setlists included, below.

Can't say I'm a fan, but these photos make the show look like something worth going to.

OFF! is a great band if you're looking for really good throwback skate punk circa late-70s L.A. Circle Jerks are WAY better but hey, I'll take it. Nice pics, Jason!

Thanks! I really liked that they were just straight forward punk. They played all 16 songs they knew- no frills, no covers. The whole band was at 100% energy whenever they were on stage. (even at Fader Fort where things could've gone completely wrong)

i refuse to believe that the 2010 incarnation of circle jerks is "better" than OFF! then again maybe i am a soft brained neaderthal but hey...opinions are like assholes...they all stink!

that being said, nice pics!

So everyone just ignores the "hummus" guy, right? Ok.

2010 circle jerks is not better than off! in fact, 2010 circle jerks is pretty much done and buried judging by keith's public comments lately on greg hetson.

Redd Kross is a thousand times better than Circle Jerks anyway.

Great show at Europa.

OFF! rules. Circle Jerks rule. Shut the fuck up and enjoy the music and hope Keith keeps doing both bands.
