The Scumbagz

The Scumbagz were in town to play this concert benefiting Boise Community Radio and the ACLU of Idaho. It was their live debut, and what a success it was! First time listeners were dancing, grooving, and gasping at their outrageousness. How appropriate for a band that explores the extremes of free speech to play in a benefit concert promoting civil liberties and raising funds for Boise Community Radio (locally grown radio...). Thanks to the band for traveling here and helping us out! You have Scumbagz fans here in Boise! S F * F S

The Scumbagz covered a Digable Planets song, and you can listen below, but caution, the lyrics are pretty much meant to offend, which is the whole gag.






There is a lot more than meets the eye. This band is comprised of accomplished, well educated musicians/artists. Originally they were only billed to play one venue, but word spread quickly, and they were invited to play another club the following night.

They are an extreme spin-off of the early 80's style punk rock bands -- hard-driving, anti-establishment rock 'n' roll, characterized by harsh lyrics. "King" the lead singer and front man really plays up the scumbag image, making it total entertainment.

Being a band groupie doesn't leave much time for cooking, but I managed to make some 'Chocolate Mint Melties' (from Everyday Dish DVD) pictured in front of the Scumbagz Swag Bags.
I also whipped up some guacamole (Mikaela), cherry turn-overs in puff pastry (Stonielove), and 'Creamy Hummus' (Catherine) from Vive. For good measure, I tossed them Primal Strips, nuts, & Kettle Chips. Thank you all for the "band munchies" advice below -- as you can see, your suggestions really helped.

Egdoh Tra. Hee hee. i love that name. Soooooo... i dunno, very palindromatic! Or citamordnilap actually. (Neither of which are words, i think.)

Groupies untie; i mean UNITE. i wouldn't know ANYthing *cough* *Rick Springfield* *cough* about any groupie-like behaviour.

Way to cook up stuff for them, to have snacks ready for them and to just be there to root them on. (And don't they deserve it for their 'tude and tunes?! Boise Community Radio got it good with them appearing!)

And those swag bags for the Scumbagz are hilarious and cool. UYncle Eddie's needs to watch out if you ever go into business.

Vicki, you are so so so so so awesome.
