Mixtape: Highlights from San Francisco Bay Area Punk, Post-Punk and Hardcore (Podcast #290)

Mixtape: Highlights from San Francisco Bay Area Punk, Post-Punk and Hardcore (Podcast #290) The Bay Area has held a prominent place in punk music since punk first became a thing, with groups like Crime, Avengers, Flipper, and Dead Kennedys among the genre's most important '70s and '80s bands.

Raucous rock duo Coasting is making a stop in San Francisco as part of their West Coast tour.

If you appreciate a bare bones approach to rock music with emphasis on energy and melody, rather than intricate instrumentation and songwriting, then you should find Coasting a refreshing listen.
