Sacramento has birthed plenty of great punk bands, be it Tales of Terror, Yah Mos or Hoods. But Trash Talk ranks among the best of them, a blitzkrieg of energy and over-the-top stage antics that have earned it fans worldwide.
Trash Talk bridges the subcultures of punk rock, skateboarding and even rap (as part of the progressive hip-hop collective Odd Future), though its thrash-y influences are far more pronounced, owing a debt to ’80s hardcore bands like Suicidal Tendencies and Black Flag.
Trash Talk now calls Los Angeles home, but returns to its former stomping grounds March 16 for an all-ages show at Harlow’s (2708 J St., Sacramento). Hip-hoppers Ratking and Lee Bannon open the show. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show kicks off at 6:30 p.m. $15 advance, $18 day of show. (916) 441-4693, www.harlows.com.
