Lud Local awesome peeps bring it on year after year in music and media and life in general. Don't miss your friends tonight. "Started a couple of decades ago as all improvisational music. Lud evolved over the years; touching on noise/punk rockery, psychedelic and soul; Finally settling into something akin to that nebulous category of Americana. There's still a big stain made by big rocking guitars and healthy forays into wobbling clouds of musical dust.

"Formed in late 2009 by Durham-area veterans of great punk and indie bands past and present (Ugly Americans, Mind Sirens, Simeon, etc.), The Bastages play mostly loud, mostly fast anti-Fascist punk rock." http://www.reverbnation.com/thebastages

Bio: The Bastages are a punk band formed in late 2009 by Durham-area veterans of great punk and indie bands past and present (Ugly Americans, Mind Sirens, Simeon, etc.). The band plays loud, fast anti-Fascist punk rock on their own terms -- deal with it.
We're going into Overdub Lane studio in Durham this weekend to finally record (we hope) an entire album. We'll keep you posted!
“If you are a fan of socially aware safety pin-and-leather jacket punk rock, but wish the songs had more topical references to YouTube and the tea party, then getting beaten about by the Bastages is exactly what you need.”
