Take a look around you. You’re likely surrounded by a lot of dead things. Dead skin. Wood. Paper. Food. Tiny insects. Leaves on the ground. We don’t really pay much attention to all the dead things. As I examined my surroundings at the Replay Lounge on Saturday night, I noticed punk rock and it was very much alive. Lawrence locals Kemosabe and Black on Black brought to the table two different flavors of punk, my favorite thing to feed my ears.
