May was a month of punk show in Maine. There were a lot of good ones, I got out to about 5 but I know some folks put me to shame. I got to see a lot of new bands, some bands I see often and a few bands that I had been looking forward to seeing as well.
The last band of the month I got to see was The Downtown Boys. They are from Rhode Island and play really amazing political punk. with some saxophone mixed in for good measure!
They were a great live band, lots of energy. I have missed bands like this as mostly the political bands do not speak much about their songs but The Downtown Boys were relentless. It was refreshing a thought provoking. I was glad I got to take and meet up with some friends at the show as well.
