The Olympic is hosting a punk rock benefit that will help out musicians experiencing homelessness. On Friday, Aug. 23, local rockers Dogs in the Fight, Non-Fiction, Nude Oil, Jimmy Vegas and the Phobes, and Emus will take the stage.
The lineup sounds a lot like a Tony Hawk: Pro Skater video game soundtrack. They're all high-energy, in-your-face punk rock.
Dogs in the Fight brings an anti-establishment, angry sound, reminiscent of the legendary punk troupe, Minor Threat.
The lyrics "fight for your freedom, stand up for your rights, we're all dogs in the fight," from the band's song and namesake, Dogs in the Fight, tells you exactly what to expect.
The standout of the group is Nude Oil, a rockabilly outfit that sounds strikingly similar to early Against Me!
Jimmy Vegas and the Phobes has a similar rockabilly sound in some respects, while Non-Fiction is pure power punk.
With Dogs in the Fight, Non-Fiction, Nude Oil, Jimmy Vegas and the Phobes, and Emus. 8 p.m. $10. The Olympic, 1009 W. Main Street, Boise, theolympicboise.com.
