Submission is a fucking bummer

Last night we played a show at submission gallery in the mission with Opt Out, Death First and two other bands whose names I forgot. This marks the first and last time Homeowners will ever play there. I don't think their all ages status merits them any right to host "diy" punk shows. This place is a safe space for macho security dudes, sexist artwork, shitty sound and no in's and outs. For all the shit I hear people talk about Gilman (myself included) it ain't nothing compared to that fucking place. I'd rather play slims or bottom of the hill.

When you approach the bathroom at Submission look to the left behind the stage and you'll see a mural of a woman in little to no clothes (it was partially covered last night by a white board, but it is still there). She's drawn in a traditionally sexy image, ala large breasts, big ass and pouted lips, like something out of the heavy metal animation or something. She has her hands and legs tied together and the words "submission" above it. What's does this say? To me it's sexual violence and I want no part in playing a space that commissions that kind of bullshit art.

Also, if they're going search bags, not allow in's and out's and pull that shit where they shine a flashlight in your face for standing on a chair, then why aren't they as uptight about making sure a microphone is working or not? It's because they don't give a shit about punk shows or our community at all. They just use us as way to make rent and wield some sort of fucked up power over people. There's no other reason people go to that fucking place besides to see a show, but they're going to put no effort into the sound and be dicks to everyone there.

They treat everyone there as a nuisance or even worse, a potential enemy, and that's exact reason why I got into punk, to avoid that world. Save the macho dudes, and intense security and awful sound for someone else because our community doesn't belong there.

I know that are shitty band that has no draw isn't going to affect the existence of Submission but I strongly encourage everyone else to stop going/playing there as well. We deserve better, and if there isn't any better then let's at least play a shitty club that gives you drinks or food or money or anything to make it easier to be there for four hours.

I blame superchunk... Razorcake review

  Here's what they said.


HOMEOWNERS: Light and Vision: 7"

I blame Superchunk’s “Slack Motherfucker.” Was it punk? Was it college rock (which became indie)? It was rockin’ and angsty and I loved it. Girls who liked REM liked them because of the pretty parts and it didn’t look like the guys in the bands were the stabbing kind of hobos who wanted to hurt you. Dudes who had Crass patches liked the “motherfucker” and “I’m not working for you” side of things. And since this was at a really important developmental stage in my music brain, I have the largest soft spot for bands that hit that energy/catchiness, where it can be fists in the air, uncontrolled bouncing, and smart/angry all at the same time. Not to be a dick, but this is what I thought Beat Happening would sound like before I heard them. Don’t let genres lock you into solitary confinement. This shit’s downright enjoyable and fresh. Supposedly, it was also recorded in Neil Young’s model train studio, but the internet is usually a big, fat, fuckin’ liar. –ToddTaylor
