the REPERCUSSIONS, CASTOFF & KILLER PARTY
DOORS: 8 PM / SHOW: 9 PM
The REPERCUSSIONS were formed the summer of 1999 in the greater Washington DC metropolitan area. Their sound was crafted carefully over the years by reflecting their environment. Washington DC is a fast paced, bellicose city and consequently so are The Repercussions. Heavily influenced by the DC hardcore sound and bred into a polluted reggae tone, its tough to keep you’re feet still while the band wails and upstrokes its way into that soft spot you have in your heart for music that just makes you wanna’ smash the status quo. After relocating to Denver in 2007, the band immediately went to work making new connections, writing new songs and picked up a new local bass player. Revisiting their influences and adding a sense of urgent direction and finesse, Denver provided the band a breath of new life and inspiration. Don’t get it twisted though, this band isn’t here to preach a bizarre political agenda, rather to point out and frame the position our society has created for its self over the years and therefore essentially mock the existing condition of our consumer driven American culture.
CASTOFF was initially a writing/recording project created by Bill H in the spring of 2012 as a way to vent frustration concerning the lack of reason, logic, and equity in American politics and society. Pete C. soon decided to join the effort and the two recorded the original 8 songs. Adam P and Brian W joined shortly after the recording was completed. Castoff is a call to end the true institutional class warfare where the working poor and middle class support the rich. Castoff is really just songs about the rest of us. The people that have been discarded, written off, overlooked, or ignored. Nothing more, nothing less.
