My favorite Bay Area band right now is easily Skin Like Iron. Here is a photo of them taken by the notorious Walter Yetman.

ECONOCHRIST
This photo was taken at the 2nd show I ever saw at 924 Gilman (Jan. 11, 1991).
To give some color to the culture of things at that time: At the very first show I went to upon moving to CA, I met a girl about my age. She seemed very involved in the scene and after that 1st show, she sent me a cassette with all the hottest new hardcore bands on it. One band the girl turned me onto was Downcast. So, I went to see and take photos of Downcast with Born Against, The Hated, Grinch, and Econochrist. I had just moved from Salt Lake City and was only really used to ‘youth crew’ posi-core. The Bay Area scene was very different and I attribute that to my interest in varied strains of punk and my general radicalization.
Econochrist were a big part of Bay Area punk/hardcore in the 90’s. Over 20 years later, I am now friends with Ben, the guy in this photo. I love the Bay Area.

TORCHES TO ROME
With all the old art and mentions of Torches To Rome, I thought it fitting to post a photo of them from around 1995. This photo is of Sarah who, at the time, went by Mike Kirsch.
Numbered Days
And they said to “do as you’re told and you won’t get hurt”
and for what it’s worth I’ve also followed
You toook the poison - did you enjoy?
For what it’s worth I’ve also swallowed. But I’m trying! I’m trying!
If I could erect a monument to my inability
at it’s base it would read - I am sorry-
Another familiar face takes it’s sorriful place lined up on the opposing side
these days may drag us down but at least we’ll know we tried
It makes me wonder if I can resist
as the orders come down to cease and desist, 
because I never gave a fuck - gave a fuck what they said
but I wouldn’t be so quick to say that it didn’t fuck with my head
But I’m trying! I’m trying!
It doesn’t matter if you’re dead or alive
commit! - not to give up the fight
and if every cell - an angry well
with such a dutiful beauty it just might spell 
numbered days for them
(love & strength to you, Sarah)

PORTRAITS OF PAST
This photo was taken around 1994. This is Rex from Portraits of Past. This show took place at some house where someone from Rancid lived and, I think, featured in one of Rancid’s video. At the time, with Rancid’s newfound pop success, we all got a big kick out of it. I attended the show with a b-boy friend of mine who commented afterwards, “I was the only guy in there with a fade!”

It is exciting to find out a friend is an artist when you had no idea.

Wet Witch Last night I saw Wet Witch from NY. Good stuff. I always get excited when a band uses electronics.
