Punk Rock: Classic and Modern

The REOFFENDERS are on an indefinite break. Never say never, but we currently have no plans to play. However, we had joy and we had fun... and we blogged about it. Enjoy reading and reliving some good times.

Hot and Sweaty at the Vintage

Saturday saw the long awaited return to the Vintage in Wellington. We've only played there once before - last May bank holiday when Diamond Dogz played the marquee outside and then we played inside straight after to a very tightly squeezed in audience.

We were all a bit tired from staying up with Punk'd.... sorry, I mean Slob, the night before but once we started playing, the energy came rushing back. Smeg looked much more at ease having popped his cherry the night before and introduced a new instrument to our musical ensemble... the triangle! I mean, what self respecting punk band doesn't have one!

The REOFFENDERS at the VintageBefore long, we had a full on mosh pit infront of us with beer spilling everywhere, bodies slamming together, drinks being knocked off tables and glasses broken. One guy cut his hand on a glass but carried on regardless. He kept being taken behind the bar to get patched up before getting back into the middle of things.

We played for 2 hours and then came back for a five song encore.

This is what its all about! From the first song, the Wellington crowd were with us and gave us so much energy - I can't tell you what a difference it makes. We've got gigs booked at the Vintage throughout the year so it won't be too long till we're back again! Huzzah!
