Propagandhi 2009-05-24 Tempe, AZ

This was my second (or is it third?) time seeing Propagandhi, but the first time this century! I have a hazy memory of seeing them at the Nile in Mesa, AZ back in…ehh..96/97? They were touring on their second album, Less Talk, More Rock. They’ve since released three more full lengths. Each one a little heavier than the last. Their newest album, Supporting Caste, brought me back as a fan 100%. Luckily for me they played a lot of the new songs at their Marquee Theater show in Tempe last night.

Although they are as much devoted to forwarding their political ideals as the music, I prefer just the tunes. I have to admit they did introduce me to a lot of ‘heavy’ ideas and different viewpoints back in my high school days, but at this point I don’t really enjoy the preaching. It was also cool to see them play with Todd Kowalski on bass, he was in I Spy! I sure as hell can’t remember if he was in the band the last time I saw them 13 years ago. I was happy to see a good turnout at the Marquee, which can be a pretty shitty place to see a band if less than 300 people show up. Everyone in the band was on point with tons of energy and, hitting all the pauses and solos perfectly. The sound was a little shaky at first, but the soundman figured it out pretty quick and locked it in for what turned out to be a fairly good recording of a very talented band.
