I came to a conclusion the other day that my blog was getting a little too…”west side heavy”. I felt it was time to venture more to the East of the Coachella Valley and see what was going down in the rock scene out there. I ended up in Coachella and found some kids out there that were holding down for the Punk Rock scene. Despite the fact that some aren’t even old enough to drive, the trio, CV Punk Shows, manages to throw shows and brings crowds. And they have been doing so since 2007.
Personally, I really like these guys because they are really passionate about their music and they have the ambition to create a scene for themselves. Their D.I.Y. attitude is what was most admirable.
Although they are men of few words, they get the message across.
