The OSS Punks on the New Times facespace blogospheres and Tweeterings

Posted in Show, the masses on September 28, 2009 by All Conference Vintage

“Opening up the night was a great new punk band in the Phoenix music scene. The OSS Punks featuring Select Shows promoter Joshua Rodriguez as well as several heavy-hitters such as Dirty Dan from George Moshington and John Q, kept the crowd warm and toasty with their simply composed yet intricately catchy guitar riffs. Lead vocalist Frank Hanney delivered powerfully as the growing crowd provided evidence that this band has got some serious attention coming their way. Highly entertaining and refreshingly ambitious, OSS Punks definitely helped set the tone for the night”

one correction: we are not ambitious

“and my friends, in this story you have a history of this entire movement. First they ignore you. Then they ridicule you. And then they attack you and want to burn you. And then they build monuments to you.”
-address of Nicholas Klein, author of “The Socialist Primer: A book of first lessons for little ones” to the Biennial Convention of Amalgamated Clothing workers of America, 1919. Later swiped by Mahatma Gandhi
