H2O – Denver recap
When you think of 90’s punk rock you should automatically think of Epitaph Records. A few bands should come to mind when you think of that record label: Pennywise, Rancid, Nofx, & Bad Religion just to name a few. But there was one band that was really awesome but totally underrated, we’re talking about the hard-core punk band “H2O” from the great state of New York. H2O’s ability to write catchy, melodic riffs while retaining hardcore’s full-throttle rush, as well as their straight-edge sensibility and obvious love of hardcore originators like Minor Threat got them a following along the East Coast. Denver has always had a great wide variety of multi genre music that comes thru the city, and this band rocketed the fuck out when they came thru to the Marquis.
Twenty some years later and these guys are still killing it and able to sell albums and go on tour. The Marquis is a smaller venue but everyone still managed to pack in and there was still enough room for some mosh pit action to go down. After a brief sound check from the band H2O was ready to come out swinging and that’s just what they did. We swear they played everyone of our favorite tracks from their best albums. But the two best songs that we found enjoying then and now is the track, “everyday” and of course, “thicker than water” from their 1997 self titled album. We will always have a open mind about different music genres but punk music will always have a special place in our heart no matter what. Let’s all be honest, most of us, if you skated or skate, you have listened to punk at some point in your life. We grew up on it.
