Pop-Punk at the Spot

Great show at the Spot last night, though the Sunday night slot cut into our high school girl fan contingency. Pop-punk abounds and every band was entertaining and had good tunes! A few of the cools showed up early... All photos by me unless otherwise noted.

The Main Beverage




















The Main Man




















The Rad One




















Wild Bill Kate




















Grant and Poison Ally




















Jamesage




















Toddy




















Robby Kills




















You wanted the best, you got the best! Hometown heroes, punk rock visionaries... ladies and gentlemen, the TIT PATROL! Photos by Robby, (Good Work!)
















The Cock Blocks from Shippensburg, PA! These guys are great and really cool and guitar Justin runs Punk Rock Promotions and has been booking the Tit with lots of sweet gigs! We'll be playing with 'em a lot, so go ahead and fall in love! www.myspace.com/cockblocksrock

Justin Slieone - guitar and vocals




















Joe "Dogboy" Rockwell - bass




















Zac College - drums

Mr. Boofman - vocals






























The even better than expected Flamingo Nosebleed out of Fort Wayne, Indiana! These guys were fuckin' sick and tight, and their drummer hits VERY hard, always good. F.N. definitely made their spot in Wilmington's heart by closing with a sing-along cover of "Bonzo Goes to Bitburg", a sensitive and heady choice of a Ramones cover, if I do say so myself! Both Flamingo Nosebleed and the Bricktops are heading up to the Electric Cave in Portsmouth, New Hampshire to record with Creepy Uncle Jim, as the Tits just did for our second LP! So you know they're down. http://www.myspace.com/flamingonosebleed

























Jake Emissions - guitar and vocals















Druie Ooie - bass and vocals















Pete Dio - drums

























Nikki and mc Ben

D.J. Eff Tradition




















MATTY LATCH!




















Out of town headliners, the Bricktops from Delphos, Ohio! They were great, totally sick Queers style pop-punk! Plus they popped a belt in their van outside of Harrisburg, fixed it themselves, and got to the Spot with plenty of time to spare! If that was the Tit, we'd have resorted to cannibalism and what not! Check 'em at www.myspace.com/thebricktops and dig "Ten Year High School Reunion" and "The Bricktop Bop!"

Kevin G. - guitar and vocals

Kevin O. - bass and vocals

Josh T. - drums














And closing out the night was New Castle's Finest, the best band in Delaware: Tragic Johnson! Now including a New Castle Brown Bear which King Eric killed, skinned, sewed jeans on, and wears for warmth, comfort, and style.
