Crispus Attucks (Time Machine #1)

On this day, 13 years ago, this show happened at DC's Wilson Center. Pretty cool lineup, and for the goofballs that care about Thursday, it might be sort of astonishing to see them playing somewhere for only $5.

I never "got" Kid Dynamite. I still don't. 

Crispus Attucks is cool. I have their album Destroy the Teacher because one of my friends stole it from a chain CD store. Good punky hardcore with (if I remember correctly) mostly political lyrics. If anyone listens to the Dissonance Podcast, there are some pretty choice episodes that have a guy from C.A. on them. One of them is called 'When Good Punk Goes Bad' and it's strictly about really crappy punk songs from bands that used to be good (notably playing something from the oft neglected Clash album Cut the Crap). That's all I can really say.

No Justice rules. Just search any of their live sets on youtube (especially their last show). Stuff getting thrown all over the place, and a madman vocalist (Timmy) with no regard for his own safety. Really cool, not a lot of songs, but most of them are great. Big fan of the version of "Political Scheme" that appears on the Memories of Tomorrow compilation that came out on Youngblood. Sounds much fiercer than the one on Still Fighting.
