    Bad Times' Best New Bands of 2009

I have disqualified bands I know have existed prior to 2008, including some of my favorites such as Here Comes A Big Black Cloud, Popitilopitilus, Mattress, and Magic Johnson, all of whom I guess I’m giving props to right now.1.. 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.
