be careful, a lot of this was booked by one of the biggest wastes of space i've ever met, this promoter from PA named foo.

what he does is book a thousand bands, then he doesn't schedual them, talk to them, or figure out how he can make it work to have that many bands play at once.

hes such a piece of shit that my band won't play anything he's involved with, even if its something we are really interested in (like skatopia, though they kicked him off of that this year so we are playing)

so, if he booked this expect to hear that all the bands you want to see are playing at midnight. then expect to see them play 15 min sets at 4 am.


also, this guy walks around dressed like a pirate.

Joseph,

Your post was majorly misinformed and disappointing.
You should be ashamed for trash talking Punk Island just because you're playing another event that weekend.

Why lie about stupid things? I'm not from PA. Last year's Skatopia headliners have always gone on between 12-2am even when generators blew, the fusebox, and the stage itself caught fire. I left Skatopia when they moved their dates. I did not solely book Punk Island. It doesn't go until midnight or has thousands of bands... etc, etc.

Punk Island is the collective effort of promoters, record labels, and bands making the one of the best DIY shows ever. People have worked months on benefit shows across the North East to make this happen. It will be awesome, pure and simple.

Cheers,
Foo

P.S. Enjoy MTV Joseph. You deserve it.

I went to this the first year they had it (2 years ago) and it was kinda horrible. but I did discover some cool new bands and despite their shitty event planning I found a way to have some fun there.

hopefully after 2 years of working out the kinks they've improved it. Looks like the band lists have expanded at least.

...I'm sure I'll get shit for this--but I'm not really a fan of promoters/whatever making accounts on here just to rebuttal someone's opinion for the sake of their event. Then post a flyer. Silly.

Technically I created an account to start this topic. As for the flyer, I couldn't edit the first post. Monkeywrench, I agree that most promoters/whatever are too far up their own asses. They develop an artificial sense of self fueled by the egomaniacal music industry. They start worrying over their status and they forget, to quote Bill Hicks, "It's just a ride."

The Black Death All Stars are one of the best bands out there today.
After sharing quite a few space bags and house shows, I put them on Skatopia and then pushed for them to open at the movie premier. I thought Joseph and I were on great terms until I saw his post. Regardless, If you ever have a chance to see them, you should.

I think people are apathetic to music politics. If not, they should be.
In my perfect world flyers would read: Free show, good bands and great friends.

Just got back from punk island yesturday. Epic , but poorly planned. That , and all the people who were in the "pit" were just jumping into each other like a bunch of frat boys. Im not complaining , I was in it too , but I woulda enjoyed a circle behind it. Just couldnt get it going. Best shows , Blank77 , and star ....ing hipsters by far in my opinion. I really though my face was getting licked on I wanna be a punk though. Got way too close for the ".... yeahhhh".Blank 77 who , as listed above , played on the "mothership" stage which happened to be a picnic table in the middle. awesome. Val-yoom [I dont know how to spell it] got me feelin good , but made my drummer and travle partner pass out for like three hours in the grass.
Got to meet a few cool people , and found about a band called "Dudemanbro" which Im diggin. The worst part was skating from the ferry to port authority....Not everyone had money for the subway , and pussies didnt wanna hop the gate. That and the line for the ferry leaving. Anyone got pictures? I was the skrawny dude in the purple shirt, and green bandanna.


....I did see a guy dressed like a pirate.....

i thought everything was fine untill i saw how horribly you handled that last skatopia event and realized you are just a bag of hot air. theres no room for that in the DIY scene, we all work too damn hard as it is to have people blow smoke up our asses and then get dicked around.
sorry dude.

I was there, red pack and a guitar, good shows. I thought the Boston bands were pretty dank. Razors in the night were tight. there was just tons of bands and such little time. i give Slug props though. they did a great job.

  1. Paying the Bills

    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $45.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
