I went out to Ventura the other day to check out the second year of Nardfest with my buddy Chris and his friends and let me tell ya, it was a Hell of a trip. At this years Nardfest, Ill Repute were the headliners for the night, and they were celebrating the 30th anniversary of the album What Happens Next, and were gonna be playin' it in its entirety. I was pretty fuckin' stoked about heading up there. The line up was fucking killer. Got to see some bands I've never heard of before, like In Control and a few others. It was funny running into every single person I've met out there the previous year and catchin' up. The turnout for the show was fucking gnarly. Met some new people during the show like Bob from The Grim, who also gets down with another bad ass band called Glue Gun. We talked about getting The Grim back out here in Vegas with other Nardcore bands a little bit more in the upcoming future among other things. False Confession laid it down once again like the last time I saw em. They were supposed to play the Ill Repute show back during Punk Rock Bowling earlier this summer at the Dive Bar, but had to cancel 'cause Fred the guitarist fucked his hand up. I was told by IZ the singer that they are eager to get out here during the fall, so keep an eye out for 'em. Stalag 13 had people fuckin shit up, and told me they were gonna play the Double Down in the next few upcoming weeks but canceled because they found out what a fucking joke that place is. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Ill Repute started their set off with the A-side of What Happens Next, and then the B-side, and then onto other classic rippers off Land Of No Toilets. To sum it all up, I drove a few hundred miles to catch a gnarly show, got hooked up on some killer merch, and hung out with everyone I set out to. Wonder who's gonna play Nardfest round 3 ahahahaha......
