I’m really glad The Edge decided to pick this blog up. I like to offer them pieces that speak to new and exciting music as well as articles that speak to new rock’s roots, influences and history. Bad Religion is a likely influence for many new rock acts experiencing regular play on the station right now.
I have had the privilege of attending a few Bad Religion shows over the past 20 years – and every show has been just as great as my first (…digression: where my friend’s boss drove us to downtown Toronto on a school night (and… my mom insisted I go to school the next day even though I arrived home at 2am), the Supersuckers opened – and I tried my first (unsuccessful) attempt at sneaking into the cordoned off beer garden – par for the course when you’re barely a teenager attending your first real punk rock show – and by that I mean, a punk rock show that was not organized by my friend Vicky – or where I did not attend school with one of the band members…).
