TVD Ticket Giveaway:
I Am The Avalanche at the Subterranean, 3/24

Playing raw punk rock since 2004, New York’s I Am The Avalanche have created a name for themselves in the punk scene. After the release of the self-titled debut album in 2005, the quintet toured across the world and developed a loyal following. Six years after their debut record, I Am The Avalanche is back with their powerful sophomore effort.

Currently making their way across the country in support of the new record, Avalanche United, I Am The Avalanche will be headlining at the Subterranean this Saturday (3/24).

For those of you whose wallets are feeling a bit on the light side, we’ve got a pair of tickets to giveaway!

Released this past October, Avalanche United, is the second studio album from I Am The Avalanche. With an intimidating six years gap between releases, vocalist Vinnie Caruana had this to say about the new release and its effect on the band:

“This band has a nervous energy, an urgency that each of us feel every second of our lives, and this album captures that. We’re brothers, we’re family. The music we make together binds us together and gets us through all the hard times, together. I feel like all five of us will be able walk with less weight on our shoulders now that we’ve finished this album after years of writing and recording.”
Vinnie Caruana

You can pick up Avalanche United, on blue and white swirl vinyl through their online store.

The all ages show at the Subterranean (2011 W. North Ave) kicks off at 5:30 PM this Saturday, 3/24.

100 Resolutions- The Lawrence Arms


Fear- I Love Livin' in the City


my goodness there's so many to choose from! I love the Clash & The Ramones, but as far as my favorite Punk anthem goes, I have to go with "Baby, I'm An Anarchist" by Against Me! It's not there most hardcore sounding song, but it's still amazing. I love "I Fought The Law" by Sonny Curtis as covered by the Clash, the Dead Kennedys, and Green Day too, but I still have to go with "Baby, I'm An Anarchist."


Although not as dated, I'm going with "Linoleum" by NOFX


"Johnny Quest Thinks We're Sellouts" by Less Than Jake. My best friend still lovingly teases me about my ska love, and this song is all about not caring. LTJ was also one of the first bands that introduced me to punk.


I'm going to go with "This Place" by the Descendents. They are my all time favorite old school punk band. 


I'm going to go with Blanks 77 "I wanna be a punk."  Because I was a teenager when that came out. 


Rise Above by Black Flag. Fuck you if this isn't punk.
