iVoryTowerz Radio Gets Punked Up

How about a little punk rock to enliven your Memorial Day holiday weekend? Nothing like a little protest as we remember the fallen. Somehow the punk movement looks all the more wise despite its underlying nihilism given what has happened in the more than 30 years since it exploded on to the cultural scene. The underground podcast gets punky just about every week, but this time out, we provide an extra special dose. For those who want more than music to mosh with though, we also throw some progressive metal, folk, and indie rock into the mix. Raise your fist. Strike the appropriate sneering pose (one that will scare Dick Cheney off the national stage). And strap on your Doc Martens. This one goes right for the throat. Rant with us. Dance with us. Rock with us. But, of course, enjoy responsibly.
