    I went to my first Punks show last night and I just wanted to share the phenomenal experience with everyone. They are an awesome live act! I met Ralph and Joe before the show and they are great guys and were really eager to talk to us. My brother recorded the first set and I will mail it to Brett so he can post it once my brother finishes making it as perfect as he can. From the little bit that I have heard it sounds excellent.
    The Punks played every the following songs:

    Everything off of Van Halen 1, Your'e No Good, Bottom's Up!, D.O.A., Somebody Get Me A Doctor, Dance The Night Away, Beautiful Girls, And The Cradle Will Rock, Everybody Wants Some, Mean Street, Hear About It Later, Unchained, Where Have All The Good Times Gone, (Oh)Pretty Woman, Panama, Hot For Teacher, and DLR's Yankee Rose.

    A Gene $immon$ impersonator also showed up and his costume looked so perfect that I thought that he may have been a friend of theirs from a Kiss tribute band. However, no one would answer as to who he was. Anyway, The Punks brought him onstage to sing "Rock And Roll All Night" and they played it perfectly. The Punks sold out the club two nights in a row. If you ever have a chance to see them it is well worth it. Ralph put it best when he said that the Punks are not Van Halen impersonators, they pay tribute to "The Best Heavy Metal Band of all time......Classic Van Halen! Regardless of the VH factor the band are superior musicians and put on one hell of a live show. Not to mention very nice guys. There's not much more but that was some of the most fun that I have had at a live show in years. It was fun head bangin' again! Everyone who went had a blast! The Atomic Punks rocked Salt Lake City!!!! [img]graemlins/bounce.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/bounce.gif[/img] :

    SON OF A... Dammit, I live near, and work in Salt Lake, and I didn't hear a thing about the show 'till I read your post. I saw them in Provo 40 miles south) a few years ago at the Achafalia (or however the hell you spell it) and they kicked ass. I would have loved to go to that show. I guess this is what I get for listening to KSL newsradio. I only do it for the traffic updates, but I obviously missed some sort of announcement on Rock 99 and KBER. I hate myself...

    Thanks man, It was stellar! Ralph and Joe are great guys. The CD should be ready by Wednesday. I heard a few tracks yesterday and the quality is great. He was only able to get the first set because some jackass spilled beer on the mini disc recorder one song into the second set. He's just editing out the talking before the show and in between sets before you post it. We also got some great pics as well and will send them also. I'll shoot you a PM in the next couple of days so we can get this coordinated.
