There was mayhem aplenty as Plax thumped Liverpool’s Bagelry and Getintothis’ Warren Millar was right in the thick of it.
Texas based garage punk band PLAX hit Liverpool Tuesday night playing at The Bagelry in Nelson Street, as part of their three week, and first, European Tour. And how they hit it. Hard.
Supported by Mincemeat and OHMNS, this was one treat of a line up. Just the sort of thing to get the Getintothis’ juices flowing.
It’s a small venue but there were big vibes. It looked like this was going to be a great night. And so it proved to be. Even the pouring down rain in the shadow of the Chinese Arch on Nelson Street didn’t seem to dampen the spirits of the faithful who turned up.
Mincemeat opened the night in good form, even clearing a space on the small but packed floor for a jump off the table mid set. They call themselves a punk / techno band and we think they’re going places.
Next up where OHMNS, who rocked the place. They do what they do and regular readers will be familiar with their lack of respect for, well pretty much anything, really They set the night up nicely for Plax, who brought a similar attitude to the proceedings.
Plax then gave everyone a real high energy punk performance with lead singer Victor Ziolkowski getting the small venue really bouncing and lead guitar Samantha Wendel laying down some great punk riffs.
So although the venue was small and not really a true music venue this seemed to fit the style really well. As it should be with punk, raw and in your face sort of DIY sounds. A wicked night all round.
