The last day of this year’s Rebellion Festival, a day of no plans and discovery brought our man to the Ask Charlie (from UK Subs) Q&A, and shows from Zen Baseball Bat, Hi-Fi Spitfires, The Shit Talkers, Murphy’s Law, TV Smith & The Bored Teenagers, Antagonizers, Doug & The Slugz and The Briefs!

The second day of Rebellion Festival 2023 was filled with surprises and nostalgia with bands like The Zips, Red London, Turtles JR, Spizz Energi, Bar Stool Preachers and last but not least, the two-tone legend Neville Staples from The Specials to get everyone skanking.

Day 3 of Inkcarceration didn’t slow the weekend down. Beartooth kept the crowd ready to rock as they took the stage and gave it their all!

Helsinki Punk ‘n’ Roll Day brought a bunch of really interesting punk bands together on one stage!

HVNK PNKRCK 3.0 came, grabbed us by the nuts and threw us into the fray of several steaming moshpits with energetic punk, hardcore and rock ‘n’ roll!

Gig Reports

Something totally unexpected turned into a great thing when our resident punk happened to stumble upon a gig from the LA hardcore punk band Spaced while he was hanging out in Glasgow, and everything was just right: the crowd, the venue (The Hug & Pint), the band, the music,…

Los Fastidios dropped by Legends in Edinburgh, and turned the small venue into a packed room filled with dancing and skanking punks! If you can catch these guys live, don’t hesitate!

Earlier this month, Kvelertak dropped by in Helsinki on their “Krøterveg Te Helvete tour 2023” in support of their latest album ‘Endling’ (released via Rise Records) and brought the house down with support from Cancer Bats! An event by TuskaLive and Greybeard Concerts & Management.

The old school “Brummie Hardcore Punks” of GBH came to celebrate the 40th anniversary of their debut album ‘City Baby Attacked by Rats’ and started a riot at On The Rocks in Helsinki with support from Broken Trend and Likaiset Pikkarit!

Beartooth came to Belgium to make Trix (Antwerp) explode with energy and make the crowd of this sold out venue have an extraordinary night.

The godfathers of blackgaze, Alcest, are back on the road, with a brand new record under the arm and we were at their stop in Helsinki!

Old school D-beat hardcore instigators Discharge came back to Finland for a night during which they almost literally brought the house down!

Wasted did another small Finnish tour together with their vocalist’s new project, so I had to be there!

I’d sell my single kidney to see them back to back with Perturbator again. If Carpenter Brut reigns over hell I’m already halfway there.
