Chum Bucket Is Miami's New Hangout for the Punks, Dropouts, Thugs, Bros, and Cholas

Who are Miami Chum Bucket and what are they doing in Allapattah?

They are house punks, skaters, workers, drifters, schoolies, and grads. They are dropouts, misfits, fuck-ups, uglies, and normals. They are players, haters, riders, and sliders. They are secretaries, architects, assistant managers, and thugs. They are lovers, fighters, rockers, bros, and cholas. They are faster, harder, and stronger than ever.

The Miami punk scene finally has a new place to hang out and everybody is invited.

Disrespect it, though, and you'll catch a boot to the face. Celebrate this great day in local history with Guerrilleros De Nadie, Baker Acted, Gorilla Pussy, Eztorbo, and the Panix.

If you were to combine the amount of time these bands have been playing, you'd probably have around 22 years of hard-core collective experience. We could waste your time comparing them to groups like Warzone, Agnostic Front, the Gorilla Biscuits, Wasted Youth, Bad Religion, Minor Threat, Black Flag, and Bad Brains. But most of those bands are dead. Now is the time for a new generation to stand up, play hard, and shred till their muscles hurt, fingers bleed, and heads pound.

One day, the kids who show up for the grand opening of Miami Chum Bucket will all start their own bands, venues, distros, and labels. We can't wait.

The Grand Opening of Miami Chum Bucket with Guerrilleros de Nadie, Baker Acted, Gorilla Pussy, Eztorbo, and the Panix. 7 p.m. Saturday, March 26, at the Miami Chum Bucket, 1545 NW 28th St., Miami. Admission is free. Visit Chum Bucket's Facebook page.
