"Listen, I just watched OFF! and The Spits. I know nothing about with binders or whatnot, but Keith Morris lectured me about voting. #punk" - Scare Gardscare

The Spits @ Irving Plaza - - 10/16/2012
The Spits

CMJ at Irving Plaza (where there are big shows every night this week) began Tuesday night with the touring combo of OFF!, The Spits and Double Negative. It was a night of angry-not-punk rock... From a recent Rolling Stone article:

"With part of the hardcore mentality there became this batch of rules," [OFF!'s Keith] Morris tells Rolling Stone. "If somebody says, 'Well, you're hardcore' or 'You're punk rock,' I'm not gonna argue with you - except I'm not any of that stuff. I'm 57 years old. I'm just angry, and I'm pissed off."

Though it continues:

"What we're doing now is kind of like a party," Morris says. "And we invited some of the bands that we believe are the best to be playing with us, to make this special, to make our party on wheels something that we want a lot of different people to come to."

The party on wheels continues TONIGHT IN NJ (for those who missed the Irving show because they were home watching the debate).
