Live Music Coverage

The Bouncing Souls with Masked Intruder at Gas Monkey Live

January 26, 2015

I was granted an all access pass to this show at Gas Monkey Live in Dallas, Tx this passed weekend by my good friends from the Bouncing Souls. It’s been 3 years since I last kicked it with my Jersey homies, so I was happy to make the trip from Austin to rage with them!

I first caught fellow Austin natives, Broken Gold which features members of the infamous Riverboat Gamblers. (Fun fact, I was recently featured in the new Richard Linklater film with the Gamblers in the punk rock bar scene, look out for it in 2016!)

Here’s Rob Marchant!

I then caught up with my old friend Officer Bradford, the wise-crackin’ cop/hype man/long arm of the law for Masked Intruder, hailing from Madison, WI. I met Mr. Johnny Law backstage at an Anti-Flag show about a year ago, and met up for some shots and hugs before he went on stage.

Officer Bradford dragged me on stage for a spell, though I was too inebriated to remember quite what we did.

Finally the time came for the Souls to take the stage. Hundreds of fans gathered to witness the rare appearance of these 25+ year strong east coast heroes; the energy was un-fuck-withable.

I do regret not exploring this venue more – there’s video games, multiple bars, crazy light setups and yes, jumbotrons on the sides of the stage with a cameraman on staff for optimal viewing. We need a venue like this in Austin!
