Guttermouth, Boldtype, Rendered Useless, The Uncivil 

When: Thu., March 1, 7 p.m. 2012
Price: $13-15
There was a time when the molasses haze of youth tricked me into thinking that Guttermouth was the best punk rock band of the 1990s. A string of immature SoCal skate-punk releases—peaking with 1997's Musical Monkey—on venerable label Nitro introduced the burgeoning Warped Tour world to snotty songs about donkeys, telling your mom to fuck off, and making fun of pretty much everything. Singer Mark Adkins' on- and off-stage insanity spoke to the 'tude of a sassy, drug-addled toddler, which propelled the group into pseudo-legendary status even as their brief wave of popularity began to crest. With their 10th album Shave the Planet and 20 years under their belts, Guttermouth now, oddly enough, have earned a fond, fiery nostalgia, which is certain to bring aging punkers and skate-rats out in droves.
