    Superchunk, The Get Up Kids, & Tigers Jaw

    It's the one where David and Eric pull a thread. They start at Superchunk, work through The Get Up Kids, and end up at Tigers Jaw.The whole idea of this series is to link bands of the past, with bands of today. It's an attempt to get out of the 'there's no good music these days', old man shouting at a cloud, cliche.JOIN OUR DISCORD: https://discord.com/invite/2UhJ7YxJOIN OUR PATREON: https://www.patreon.com/growingpunkpodGRAB SOME MERCH: https://teespring.com/stores/growingpunkpodWEBSITE: https://growingpunkpod.comTWITTER: @growingpunkpodINSTAGRAM: @growingpunkpodFACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/growinguppunkpod/

    MOVIES: Halloween

    MOVIES: Halloween

    It's the first in a new series, and it's just in time for the spooky season!David and Eric take their first step into the world of movies, which will become a semi-regular series looking at movies and documentaries that embrace the DIY ethos of punk and hardcore, or are universally loved in the scene.This first one is a bit of an outlier, in John Carpenter's Halloween. They take a look at the film itself, as well as some of the punk and hardcore bands inspired by the slasher/horror film genre.Covering bands like The Misfits, AFI, and Ice Nine Kills, David and Eric also discuss the odd world of Christian Horror Punk, with The Deadlines. Just how is a song inspired by Night of The Living Dead, also a song about Jesus (besides the obvious 'back from the dead' business).JOIN OUR DISCORD: https://discord.com/invite/2UhJ7YxJOIN OUR PATREON: https://www.patreon.com/growingpunkpodGRAB SOME MERCH: https://teespring.com/stores/growingpunkpodWEBSITE: https://growingpunkpod.comTWITTER: @growingpunkpodINSTAGRAM: @growingpunkpodFACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/growinguppunkpod/
