L.A. makes a strong showing at this show with locals Rough Kids and Maniac, brothers-from-different-mothers outfits that do first-wave punk with shockwave impact. Rough Kids are hardcore punkologists who slash through the best of ’78 to ’81 (or whenever Zero Boys’ Vicious Circle came out) with guts and gusto, mixing Rikk Agnew speed and melody with deep-cut classic influences such as The Testors, Radio Birdman, The Victims and more. It’s fast and nasty, just like it should be. Much-loved locals Maniac are riding on their recent “Midnight Kino” 7-inch, two songs of hooky, hammer-down punk that make for a storming sequel to the transmogrified ’70s glam anthem that held down their “Chola Queen” 7-inch in 2015. Consider it the one-two punch you’ve been asking for.
