PUNS NOT DEAD!

Hello everyone

We're going to start this soon, and we're excited as fuck!

Standup comedy is our new arsenal, its dangerous and refreshing and provocative. Time to remove yourself from your comfort zones and find a new way of fucking shit up.

Punk stand up comedy may not be new but for sure it is NOT (yet) a common medium in the scene.

Come sign up!

POST-POGO

THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR MAKING SATURDAY HAPPEN.

WE LOST $1000 ON THE SHOW DUE TO PEOPLE NOT SHOWING UP. WHILE ITS UNDERSTANDABLE FOR THOSE WHO WERE WORKING OR HAD COMMITMENTS OR WERE SIMPLY NOT INTERESTED...NO PROBLEM WITH THAT.

HOWEVER THE SAME CANNOT BE SAID OF THOSE WHO CHOSE TO CONVENIENTLY BOYCOTT OR IGNORE THIS EVENT.

WE WONDER SOMETIMES IF PEOPLE INDEED GAVE A FUCK ABOUT THE BIGGER PICTURE, FROM THE GRADUAL CULTURAL DECAY OF THE VENUE TO THE UNIQUE MIX OF BANDS.

IS THE SCENE SO FRAGMENTED NOW THAT NOBODY GIVES A FUCK ABOUT THE SUBSTATION ANYMORE?

WHO KNOWS, REALLY.

WE CANNOT SAY MUCH BECAUSE NOBODY PUT A GUN TO OUR HEADS AND FORCED US TO DO THIS.

WE DO IT ANYWAY BECAUSE WE BELIEVE IN IT, BUT IF SOMEONE ELSE THINKS DIFFERENTLY, SO BE IT.

NOT ALL ORGANIZERS CAN SAY GOOD THINGS ABOUT LOSSES IN REVENUE, BUT IT WAS THE WORTHIEST LOSS EVER.

THE SHOW WAS HONEST, BANDS PLAYING HONEST MUSIC IN THEIR OWN UNIQUE WAYS, AND NOT PLAYING MUSIC THAT IS "IN SEASON", A PROBLEM WITH PUNK IN SINGAPORE THESE DAYS.

THE SHOW WAS FILLED WITH BANDS WHO WERE NOT "COOL".

THE SHOW WAS ALSO FILLED WITH BANDS AND ATTENDEES WHO; BECAUSE OF STANCES TAKEN, DIDNT HAVE MANY FRIENDS OR FOLLOWERS.

THE TOURING ACTS WERE ALSO GREAT, ESPECIALLY ACID RAIN WHO MADE THE MOST DEFIANT STANCE OF ALL FROM BEING RIGHT WING AFFILIATED TO OUTSPOKENLY ANTI-RACIST. MUCH RESPECT!

ALL IN ALL EVERYONE HAD FUN, DESPITE THE CIRCUMSTANCES.

IT FELT TO GOOD TO BE PART OF THE FEW AND THE PROUD.

TO ALL BANDS, ATTENDEES, CREW AND OTHER SUPPORTERS OF PARIAH POGO PARTY III, THANK YOU!

STAY TRUE AND KEEP IT REAL!

27 JANUARY 2018 @ THE SUBSTATION (and some words)

HELLO!
LONG TIME NO GO SUBSTATION!
SO COME ONE COME ALL!
HAPPY HAPPY!

AWESOME DDO ARTWORK BY DANI TREMOR




ALSO THIS HAPPENS IN FEBRUARY!
JAPANESE CRAZIES NI-HAO! WILL BE IN TOWN AND THIS WILL BE OUR FIRST SHOW AT THE PROJECTOR!



So why do we do what we do, even though its bound to be ridiculed, censored, boycotted, ignored and everything in between?

Simple. Punk isnt easy. 

It is a never ending way of life of questioning the status quo, negotiating the social evolutions that take place and reminding those around us of the falseness of social constructs like status, reputation, skill and standards.

We will continue to be unpopular (or even hated) and making fresh initiatives (and not afraid to fail in the process) while retaining responsibility in lieu of the current socio-economics around us.

Punk from exotic lands still excite us, with no tie-ins to economic fruition.

"Standards" and "affiliation" has crept into punk, some necessary some unnecessary.  How do we keep challenging this, while keeping the ethos relevant?

Whatever happened to championing bands and acts that sucked, but take your breath away at the same time?

How does one who's been through much then communicate with those that never have without flicking on the superiority complex switch?

Keep talking.

And above all keep thinking.

See you in the pit.
