BLOWBACK at Tin Roof Charleston SC July 31 2019
BLOWBACK will be playing A FREE ALL AGES SHOW to celebrate coastal South Carolina environmental activists and to connect local youth to the Sunrise Movement.

We'll be with HYBRID MUTANTS, MINIMUM WAGE and BILLY RIOT at the Tin Roof in Charleston, SC on JULY 31!

In an effort to make this a free all-ages show, we started a Kickstarter campaign. Thanks everyone, we met the goal for the club to make it a free show! However, it's still underway and you can contribute to help cover rehearsal and rental costs. See the New Sunrise for the Low Country Kickstarter page to learn more and contribute.

  • SHOWS #5
    After a way-too-long break, we returned to the Northeast for a quick run of shows after the release of Greed Runs the Clock. These shows were the debut of Bob's eagle head. After shaking off the dust in Connecticut, we had solid shows in New York and Philly. It was a blast hanging with the ABC and Motel Hell crews. We'll be back soon!

  • SHOWS #4
    This segment includes the Northwest Bar-B-Tour that ended in one of our all-time favorite shows at Brainstains in Portland, our return to Asylum in DC (where it all began) for a full night of music and spoken word where we almost ran out of songs and got Franklin with the old "band stops playing" trick. We also did in studio session at KPSU that got censored (dig around the site to find the priceless MP3 of that) and played the ABC No Rio matinee in NYC for the first time (after many near-misses).

  • SHOWS #3
    A few entertaining gigs here. In New York during the Republican National Convention, we interrupted a pagan ritual with a punk show, which ended in a mic wrestling contest with one of the pagans... had live puppetistas join in at Casa Del Pueblo....set up a generator show in Farragut Square surrounded by about a hundred cops...and played at the Washington Momument, including a jam with Michelle Shocked. The whole thing was broadcast by CSPAN and our message board was immediately clogged with hating posts from the Rush Limbaugh army.

  • SHOWS #2
    This almost qualified as a 'tour', a series of shows during IMF/World Bank meetings in Washington DC. One of the unplanned highlights included 'borrowing' someone else's permit and generator truck to set up on Pennsylvania Ave in front of the Department of Justice, then blasting away while 50,000+ demonstrators marched by. Tek the cabbie ran across town to buy a 3 prong plug converter with minutes to spare. Another happened when our flyers upset some locals who complained and got our show cancelled. Our shows seem to get cancelled a lot. We also did an in studio set at WMUC at the University of Maryland, met some great new friends in Boston, and ended up playing a show with My Chemical Romance (?!). Read on...

  • SHOWS #1
    This set of shows happened around the time of the Organized Resistance Conference at American University in Washington DC, and the World Economic Forum (and counter-summit) in New York City. As usual, most of it came together at the last minute. We had the good luck of being the surprise musical entertainment at a NY IMC rally, managed to play the F2 Festival without getting arrested, and met and played with a number of excellent bands, a number of which are unfortunately no longer together -- Zegota, Kill The Man Who Questions, and Crispus Attucks.
