The Varukers - Hole In The Wall June 11, 2009
For a Hole in The Wall weeknight show, the number of support bands seemed right for this one with just the two, Malparido and Adam Smith Assasination. Both support bands were new to me. Malparido played a quick set of super-fast unmelodic hardcore. I think they played about ten songs in less than five minutes.

Adam Smith Assassination had more of a melodic 80's Californian punk feel. I think they played a few covers from that era.

After a short break The Varukers took the stage and ripped through their set playing a mixture of old and new material. The older material included stuff like "Soldier Boy" and "I Don't Wanna Be A Victim". The thirty years of being together makes for one tight unit. Though I doubt their present drummer was alive when they formed.
