Why Not Loser, Satanic Surfers and Lagwagon Live at New Age Club, 15/11/2019



Despite the heavy rain – basically a storm – we reached the outskirts of Treviso, precisely Roncade and the New Age Club, a place known for its live gigs and part nights.
Tonight, on stage there will be Why Not Loser, local band on the road since 2008 and which released two albums and various Eps, the legendary band from Sweden Satanic Surfers and the classical punk rock heroes Lagwagon.
The openers, Why Not Losers, which have a quite strong following in Italy, do not impressed me so much on stereo but I need to say that hear them live is completely another thing. So well done guys, especially – for me – for I Decide my Age.

After a great show in Tolmin in 2018 and a good presence in Venice in spring, I’m more than happy to see Satanic Surfers live again! Rodrigo on drums is something that really amazes me, and the rest of band -especially the bassist Andy – are in great shape. And I didn’t talk about the setlist yet! Classics and not so classic mixed together perfectly, with energy and without missing a shot! Great set, really!

And then it is time for the headliners of the night, the punk rock heroes, Lagwagon. And to be honest, they did a great show, as usual - funny and entertaining – but something in Joey’s voice was not right and some songs were played slowly than expected. The good old songs are all there: May 16, Violins, Falling Apart, Alien8, Coffee and Cigarettes, Razor… but I found a Joey undertone. Well, the unexpected break due to an amplifier’s problem I think didn’t help of course, but they manage to recover and actually they close with style! There’s time of course for the new songs, especially Surviving California, one of the best songs in the new album Railer. In the end, it has been a great show, with all the good songs in the right place!
The whole night has been a balm for our thirst for true punk rock!
