pre punkfest punkfest

Aye, Capital Chaos, just heard about it - looks great. Never heard the Fleshies.

Does anyone know if this will become a stand-in for Punkfest, or if there's likely to be a Punkfest 2012 in Welly on Labour Weekend (can only afford one jaunt, and will need to book cheapish air-fares soon).

No I've never heard the Fleshies.

Just recordings.
So er, yes, you're right - I meant never seen. :)

Hey that line up looks pretty choice. But I was just wondering if the real punkfest was going down this year? I don't know if I can do two trips to welly in one month, eh.

I don't think wellington "punkfest" is going ahead this year, but that doesn't mean that someone else won't organise something again in wellies.

However, I know for a fact that something is in the works in Christchurch....so stay tuned on that front.

Fucken aye, trike club never mind the punkfest was great. Should be able to manage that and the Fleshies if there's no Punkfest 2012.

Well it can't possibly be as good without the hand of God* overseeing it, but I'm sure they will manage.

Yo that lineup for Captial Chaos looks pretty good even though I agree with Mike about the spelling, however does anyone know if Punkfest is gonna be going ahead? I think I can only afford one trip down to Welly around then.

it's also capitol on the lp cover, i suspect they meant capital. capitol refers to the building govt is based in rather than the capital city where the capitol building is. i'm guessing the album refers to chaos in wgtn rather than just the beehive specifically though i could be wrong. no need to continue on with the grammatical errors of decades past. i thought it was just 13 year olds and kvlt black metal people that think spelling errors are cool and rebellious or some shit?

and yeah if you like punk rock you're much better off without a gathering on a long wknd with bands and people from all around the country coming together, what??
