Trash Talk @ Rock & Roll Hotel Washington DC August 25 2016

I’ve seen Trash Talk now three times now in the past 19 months. Twice in DC now and once last fall at Camp Flog Gnaw. This particular show was a last minute audible for me. I wasn’t planning on going but after a quick exchange over twitter with Lee I bought my ticket. I arrived early enough to catch the first two opening acts which were local hip hop groups. They were cool. What I think is really awesome is that a hardcore punk group like Trash Talk would have two local hip hop groups open.


When Trash Talk took the stage it was all circle pits and stage dives. It was all the intensity you’d expect from the group from California.


I had an opportunity to quickly talk with Lee before and after their set. The conversation was about how hot is was in DC and an interview that Ian MacKaye had just dropped. I did give him a copy of the Salad Days DVD and one of our new SO {Standing Ovation} beanies. Hoping to build with him again the next time they come to town.
