Reagan Youth pit @ Punk Island 2014 (via the_alouth_band)
Reagan Youth

From the crustiest of street punks, to the tamest of ska fans -- all punk appetites were met at the 2014 Punk Island music festival.

Thousands of music fans flocked to the "Coast Guard" pier, a space located 100 yards from the ferry terminal in St. George, to take in the all-day festival. Starting at 11 a.m., 90 bands from across the country performed among seven stages.

All punk genres and variants were accounted for, including ska, grunge, hardcore (and all its subgenres), pop punk and early emo. It sounds overwhelming, but the stages were positioned close to one another and each served as its own genre hub. [Staten Island Advance]

Punk Island 2014 went down in Staten Island Saturday. Who were your highlights? Check out some videos from the free 'Make Music' event below.

Reagan Youth have had a busy two weeks touring the east coast, playing Punk Island, opening for the Dead Kennedys at Irving Plaza, and playing a show at Grand Victory in Brooklyn. Today, 6/27, tickets go on sale for another Brooklyn show, this time at Saint Vitus on 9/27 with fellow 70s punk band Angry Samoans who they also play at least one other show with that week: 9/26 at TT The Bear's in MA.

Meanwhile, speaking of Dead Kennedys, Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine's tour with the legendary Negative Approach (who played Punk Island in 2010) hits Highline Ballroom in NYC TONIGHT (6/27) with All Torn Up! (who played Punk Island this year, recently opened for Sheer Terror at Brooklyn Night Bazaar, and shared a bill with Reagan Youth at the Rock Shop).

Negative Approach and Jello is a pretty early show, so you might have time to head from there to see the first of two shows Infest is playing in NYC this weekend.

Speaking of Sheer Terror, they just dropped another new track from their forthcoming LP (their first in 18 years). You can listen to that with the Punk Island videos and dates below...

Is it considered punk rock to shove full size carrots into a hummus platter??? (Because I do that once and felt dangerous)

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2014 1:17 PM

Anyone seen the Angry Samoans lately - are they any good live nowadays?

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2014 1:40 PM

1:17 - don't lie, Bro! We know the only thing you're shoving are those baby carrots.

Early show indeed, JELLO / NA tickets say doors are at 5:30. Anyone know when the show actually starts?

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2014 2:24 PM

1:40 - Saw the Samoans at Grand Victory a few years ago. Music was great but I think Metal Mike was the only original member and he seemed totally bummed out to even be there. He sang most of the songs leaning on, or crouched up against, the wall at the side of the stage.

The Samoans? Oh, god that brings me back! Now all they are is post city :(

Sheer Terror 2010 on suck ass hang it up. Better yet CHANGE THE FUCKING NAME PAUL. It ain't Sheer Terror without Alan Blake who wrote ALL the music on the only good record Sheer Terror put out (Just Can't Hate Enough.) Sheer Terror is the most overrated NYHC band ever after Murphy's Law who also need to hang it up.

Damn Richie Dark Side NYC got fat LOL. Hey Richie I thought you hated/wanted nothing to do with hardcore anymore? Why are you back? Again. Your band sucked, sucks, and always will suck and you're a fat wannabe toughguy drunk asshole who thinks he's badass cuz he's Irish. I didn't see the face of ANYWHERE 1986-92. You popped up in 1992 and Dark Side NYC was never hardcore like your pals Merauder and Confusion weren't hardcore so stop fronting. I remember you had a mullet LOL. Are you still whining and jealous that a NYC band is calling themselves Dark Side and accomplishing more than you ever have or will? Seriously your band broke up in '98 popped up once maybe twice after than until you came back in '13 and you think you can lay claim to the name after fifteen years of doing little or nothing? Nah I don't think so.

These oldass bands need to get lost. Shit's over been over, you were at your best on records put out the first time around (save you Dark Side NYC as again you always sucked ass.) Negative Approach for $20 tonight vs. listening to their Total Recall cd - I'll choose the latter, thanks.

3:16. Drummer is also an original member. Saw them last year, they were great. I'll be going again.

Punk Island bwahahahahaha government and Kickstarter/Go Fund Me sponsored bullshit.

Vice are fucking assholes who actually threatened a hardcore band from Ohio called Vice for having the same name when the Ohio band had the name first and has done more than the NY one who is from Staten Island which automatically disqualifies them from talking tough. The land of Enrage Sleeper/Serpico, and Endwell, not to mention Malcolm's Lost (how could I forget?) LOL. SI bands suck so bad even their names are shitty.

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2014 6:32 PM

Oh shut the fuck up with the fake D shit. Everyone knows it's me and all your fake D nonsense isn't gonna change that.

Right 6:25pm it is over, over for all these oldass bands who need to move on with their lives and stop playing shit they wrote in 1986 and 1990 and 1992 and so on. And so are you.

Posted by D | June 27, 2014 6:50 PM

I know for a fact that the Real D has a shift right now.

Just be glad you guys didn't go to infest, wanna talk about terrible overrated bands?

Posted by Anonymous | June 28, 2014 3:39 PM

^ You're here, too? Eat a dick, Infest is not ¨terrible¨. Overrated maybe, but not terrible by any stretch. Fucking troll, congrats on being one.

Tell me about it 10:04am. He's pathetic. He's using insults about me from when I first posted on here (I work at C-Town, I live in a shed, blah blah blah.)

Posted by D | June 28, 2014 4:57 PM

Come on d, were you even at the show? Did you see how boring that set was?

Posted by Anonymous | June 28, 2014 10:51 PM

'Don't have to be at the show to know that Infest isn't ¨boring¨ and you're a pretty sad excuse of a troll and not even. You're just a dumbass.

Posted by D | June 29, 2014 12:41 AM

It's a travesty, this rank amateur continuing to sully the good name of The One True D.

He's so fucking stupid he posts as me and uses the word ¨butthurt¨, a word I never have used or will use.
