Seas. 2 - Ep. 10 - Bringing Midwest Ramones-core Punk to Las Vegas with Jerk!
I am going to be speaking with Matt Brown from the Las Vegas punk band, Jerk! today which is awesome, because these guys are a fun band from Vegas that brings energy and excitement to their shows.
I had the privilege of seeing these guys open for Teenage Bottlerocket and The Last Gang with support from Tightwire back in 2021 (and again in early 2022), and I was quite impressed. I wanted to bring them on to talk about their music and our mutual love of Screeching Weasel and much more.
