Pittsburg punk rockers Anti-Flag are 10 records into an extraordinary career. Since its inception, the band has been known for political activism, focusing on anti-war activism, anti-imperialism, class struggle, human rights, anti-sexism and anti-homophobia. These guys are personal heroes of mine because not only do they make music for the underclass, but Anti-Flag is a successful business that provides a living for the band and their friends.
I hung out with Anti-Flag drummer Pat Thetic in the alley behind the venue while openers Lee Corey Oswald took the stage.
Why did the band decide to make their 2015 record American Spring? Who crashed my interview? How will Pat answer when you offer him a joint? Which track on American Spring is a protest to drone attacks? Does Anti-Flag mentor young punk bands? Did Pat have a mentor when he was younger? Why is the song “Anatomy of Your Enemy” special to Pat? What has been the best fan reaction to Anti-Flag‘s music? Which musician does Pat want to thank for his influence on his life? Which Anti-Flag track was inspired by the Occupy Movement? Why don’t more punk rockers run for public office? Are Anti-Flag more threatening to the political establishment than Killer Mike (from Run the Jewels)? You’ll have to listen to find out!

There are some rumours circulating about the good fellas The Chainsmokers working on an album.
This is good news to someone like me who not only knows how to get ratchet as fuck, with a lampshade on his head, talking to a mirror at a house party, thinking he’s about to score with a girl, but also to casual music listeners alike. I have been tracking these guys’ career since their humble beginnings in NY around 2012/13. It is really interesting to see people make strides in their careers and retain who they are at the same time. Their new single Paris is a well executed song that gives you just enough. I can be hammered and still sing the lyrics and also allow myself to get emotional if need be, or just party to it and jump around like an idiot with a shit eating grin on my face. I will let the song speak for itself here.
