I really liked The Shocker’s CD (“Up Your Ass Tray”) so when I heard they were goingto be playing the Warped Tour I knew I had to go check them out. I mean they were playing in Ventura and probably would not be playing here again for a while. So I get in and of course it’s just as confusing as last year, I walk around lost and then I hear the distinct sounds of The Shocker coming from the Kevin Says stage. I race towards the sound of the music and there in full punk rock glory were The Shocker rockin the place for a crowd of fans. It was cool, the kids that were there were true fans, and were having a good time. I know it’s a hard choice when you have The Shocker playing at the same time as a bigger more established punk band but what can you do? I am proud to say that The Shocker can rock or as they like to say “Rawk.” The main reason I found The Shocker so good was that they give it all they have rocking out with high-energy performance, some bands have it, and others don’t. The intensity with whichThe Shocker play is awesome. The songs are fast and catchy but still hard enough to be likable. I even got to hear a few of my favorites from the album.
If you are interested in a band that kicks ass and sounds good then definitely check out The Shocker – you won’t be disappointed. I’m glad I was given the opportunity to see them play live. It was well worth it.
