I received this book from GoodReads First Reads.

This book was a such a fun read. It took me back to all the fun (and sometimes not so fun) of traveling to and attending shows. Though I was never into punk, I think a lot of the experiences are universal.

Definitely a recommendation for someone who needs a laugh, and is short on time.

This book takes me back to the days of Punk Rock. I wasn't a Punk Rocker, but had friends that were into the scene. Dave Brigham paints a pretty graphic picture of those days. I've been glued to the book since I picked it up. Stay Tuned!

Excellent book. I would recommend this to anyone. I felt like I was riding shotgun with the author. He paints a great picture of a slice of American.

I grew up outside Hartford, CT. When I was 16 I discovered college radio and quickly grew to love the punk and hardcore music that the University of Hartford and Wesleyan University stations played. Nearly 30 years later, I still love punk and indie rock, as well as classic rock, jazz, blues, electronica, old-school country and psychedelia.

I've been writing stories since I was in 2nd or 3rd grade.
