Ed & Sam

Seen at the Double Down Saloon at about 8:30 p.m., September 13th, 2013

Punk rock doesn't age well. Ed and Sam slouch behind a cheap folding table, broadcasting their radio show to an audience of eight. Radio hasn't aged well, either.

What was once passion has become pedantry. The pair spend too much time discussing punk rock memories and minutiae. They've lost sight of the point: to let bands scream raw rebellion. Have they succumbed to the mainstream? Perhaps not, but their puffy eyes and slopping guts indicate that they've lost some kind of battle. 

One too many glasses of ass juice and a false sense of importance is a recipe for the pathetic.

I've been wanting to go to the Double Down for a while, but we definitely went too early. It was pretty dead, except for these two dudes broadcasting their show. The music they played wasn't bad--when they actually played it. I'd like to go again when a band is playing. That would be better.
