Coast To Coast: Sacramento, California To Richmond, Virginia

Nikki Knight, back at you with music and mayhem, and time again for another coast to coast review, from two cities that stole my dirty little heart. You know there is nothing, like some good hardcore thrash punk, to get you through this hellish existence. I bring you two of some of my favorite local bands, one from dear sweet Sacramento CA, and another from Richmond VA my new home on the east coast. I love the music in both scenes, so I find it my duty to share their shit with your booty.

As usual I will start with my Sacramento band for this article. Public Trash, a hardcore punk band that hits you harder than your drunk uncle at Christmas. This band has high velocity riffs, powerful beats and killer vocals to smash you into submission. You will not have a boring pit at one of their shows. They get the pit moving like a tornado, with their aggressive sound and kick ass energy. They are not ones to miss. They are currently in process of working on a recording, do not forget to check them out when they do release it. This band is really well put together, and a great group of guys, I’m proud to say I had the honor of booking with Spewline Productions. I have a few YouTube links for you to check out. They will be performing at the Colony in Sacramento on May 10th with another awesome band from Oregon, Potbelly, other bands playing will soon to be announced. Check out the videos and the event page here for more.

Now for one of my new favorite local Richmond VA bands. 3:33 have an old school flavor, with great lyrics, bass heavy melodies and great guitar riffs and drums. One of my favorite songs off of their’s is “A Pig in Sheep’s Clothing” has an excellent breakdown and pays homage to MDC near the end of the song. Also, 2 Minutes For Thrashing is an automatic pit starter and will tear you a new one in less than two minutes. Their lyrics are powerful and their sound is amazing. This is not a band to miss at all. They have a show with Buzzard Dust, 40 Boys and The Donald’s at 7pm on Saturday December 9th at the Ante Room in Charlottesville VA. Check out their band camp here and their event page here if you would like to attend the show and you are in need of more information.
