Oxford Art Factory
October 30, 2017
Tonight was a side-show from The Bronx’ current Australia tour with Pennywise and how great it was to see incarnate them within the intimate confines of the sold out Oxford Art Factory.
Devoted to punk rock with rough edges even in their more tempered, melodic moments blended with a healthy dose of detached garage rock swagger and infused with the essence of what fueled early hardcore bands – The Bronx are in fine form.
Frontman and focal point of the band, Matt Caughthran did the Caesar thing in his own mischievous way – veni, vidi, vici – he inhabited the stage, declared the objectives of the night and jumped straight into implementation phase – literally, as he preferred the pit to the stage and spent a good deal of the show either crowd surfing or amidst the crowd, evoking reckless levels of energy in his wake and creating special moments galore that the audience lapped up.
An evening with no barriers, no pause for breath, just a sheer endless barrage of vitriolic LA punk with explosive finishes.
The Bronx is a rare breed: A soulful, violent, passionate and furious beast with a tinge of melancholy that is a lot of fun to ride with.
With a knack for song-writing and chant-worthy music, having found their niche with their fast obnoxious emissions that pay homage and respect to a myriad of punk territories, in a live environment The Bronx delivers the perfectly calibrated dose of showmanship and thrilling music.
An evening heavy on audience participation that cements The Bronx’ powerhouse status.
