My sound guy Jasun had been talking up a band that was touring through PDX from, of all places, Casper, WY. I was sceptical, but gave him the benefit of the doubt when he asked if they could play on my show. When he gave me a CDR of some of their stuff, I knew he was onto something. The-Front are unappologetically punk rock, blending elements of The Gits, Crimpshrine, Blatz, and a hundred other sources to write fun, original, and political songs. Coming from a town that actually drills for oil when it’s profietable, and from a town isolated in the middle of america, it’s no wonder they have a lot to say with their songs. 5 P.M. – 6 P.M.
