It’s Casual/Fatso Jetson/The Generators/Chuck Dukowski Sextet


It was a perennial landmark moment for LA hardcore duo It’s Casual on 11/23, they got to celebrate the release of their new album “The New Los Angeles Part II: Less Violence and More Violins” by performing the new album in it’s entirety along with the precursor “The New Los Angeles.”



To kick off the night was the Westside’s own Chuck Dukowski Sextet, led by hardcore punk’s most recognizable bass player Chuck Dukowski.   The band blew through their past catalog of songs and performed new material such as “Alchemists of Poison” and “All is One” and ended the set with the classic “My War” that Dukowski penned himself

Up next came LA’s own OG punk rockers, The Generators (fea. Greg Milan of It’s Casual).




Gen 2


Set List includes

1. Sound off the alarms
2. Here i go
3. You against you
4. Stand in doubt
5. Smoke and mirrors
6. Angels looking down
7. Red Carpet
8. Tryanny
9. My Curse
10. Fallen world
11. Dead at 16


After The Generators came Palm Desert’s very own Fatso Jetson.  The Lali Brother (Mario and Larry) have kept this beast moving since 94 and just recently included another Lalli member: Dino (Mario’s son) on guitar.   Doing what they do best, they blasted such Fatso classics as “Railjob” and “Golden Age of Cellblock Slang.”





After what I thought was sonic punishment enough, It’s Casual came on next.   For those who don’t know or understand It’s Casual, it’s Eddie Solis’s alter ego…loud, abrasive, brutally raw and very stoked!


Eddie and WCE punished the audience with monster riffs coming from his wall of SVT’s and Marshall stacks being played through is Explorer body ESP.

For the first part of the set, the band blasted all the way through their HC biography “The New Los Angeles” and then continued on with their sonic assault by debuting their newest album and follow up “The New Los Angeles II” in it’s entirety live before the audience.
