Stag BittenHardcore, punk, whatever.. Stag Bitten always brings it.

The two bands were the last on the roster at this years summer version of "Defector Fest",sunday afternoon at Overlook Park in North Portland.. The festival was a three day event celebrating portland punk, metal, hardcore and whatnot.. This show was to be a VS show.

    gkowash Dude if it says "ask a punk" then just look it up on facebook, you can usually find the address there. And if you can't find it, email whoever's hosting the show. Some people just don't want to put their address out on the internet for everyone to see, it's not a big deal.

    Show-bot! if it's not 'axe a punk' then people don't post shows at all then there's no way to find out if you're not popular. Axe a punk postings allow you to see that your favorite band is playing somewhere soon and then ask then where it is. We tried for many years to not do this - but that's what people post. (...and everybody gets mad at us either way) I'd argue that not posting anything altogether is the more pretentious option.

    HAYWOOF Alirght I'm just gonna say it. This "ask a punk" shit is pretentious, annoying and makes it so people that aren't popular or don't give a shit sometimes can't find shows.
