Today we bring you an Inquisition from the party king himself: Polka of the Super Fun Time Awesome Party Band!
List the names of every band that you’ve ever played in ever.
H.S.D.A.- Hey Soose and the Drunken Apostles
Stupid Pun Time Jawsome Farty Band
Lead singer and guitar player Polka Kapolka is sharp and organized. Drummer (and Punksburgh contributing photographer) Randall ALWAYS wears pants. Bassist and driver Chunk is really good at navigating from his “Google phone.” Saxophonist Sky doesn’t have much luck with the ladies. Trombonist Joeseph, otherwise known as Baron Von Bone, was the highlight of the journey, and lead guitarist Jarad, a.k.a. Lefty’s, balls definitely weren’t stuck to his leg for the duration of the trip from Pittsburgh to Canton. And if you believe those things perhaps it’s best that you stop reading now and remain blissfully unaware.
“The Party Van” pulled up punctually at 5 p.m. to collect your friend and humble narrator. Greeted by toots of party noisemakers and it’s “WOOGAH!” horn, I climbed aboard, prepared for anything. Although off to a tedious start with, as Sky so perfectly put it, “Free parking on 376,” we were on our way, The Super Fun Time Awesome Party Band to open for the one-and-only, accept no imitations Clownvis Presley at Buzzbin Art & Music Shop and I to document the experience.

Hordes of punk rockers braved the hipster-filled streets of Lawrenceville on Wednesday night, making their way to the safe confines of Belvederes to see the almighty Dwarves. This show, one that I was eagerly looking forward to, marked just about a year since the last time these punk rock legends were in town, and the crowd was ready to party.
The (blurry) Super Fun Time Awesome Party Band
Appropriately enough, the first band up was the Super Fun Time Awesome Party Band. These locals came prepared as they always do, stocked with party hats, confetti poppers, noise makers, and lots and lots of balloons. This sextet plays some loud and fast ska-punk, and the light-hearted nature of their songs is made clear by such song titles as “Party Pooper” and “Shart Attack.” When lead singer and guitarist Polka Kapolka shouts, “Let’s get ready to stumble!” you know you’re in for a good time. Plus they’ve got the coolest horn section in town. SFTAPBʻs next show is June 22nd at the Buzzbin Art & Music shop in Canton, OH with Clownvis Presley, Whiskey Daredevils, and Subourbon Son.

On the one-week anniversary of this historic show, Punksburgh brings you a dazzling photo exclusive from a very special guest-contributor! Unofficial scene photographer and the man behind the Super Fun Time Awesome Party Band‘s 1’s & 2’s, Mr. Randall Reskovac!
Last Friday at The Smiling Moose saw the triumphant debut of Skratchtrax with impressive support provided by Rocky Dennis Face & Mindless Chaos! There was a slight snare when Evad & The Ominous Squad had to cancel due to illness, to no one’s liking, but Ryan McCready was able to expertly fill the void, commanding the stage all by his lonesome.
The show must go on, as they say, & it did in glorious fashion! Enjoy the sights & see you at a show!
Iʻm back home, (mostly) recovered from Vegas, and the school year is just about over, which means it’s time to become nocturnal and go to all. the. freaking. shows. Here are five (plus a bonus out of town show!) that Iʻm especially looking forward to hitting up this month.
I saw Buffalo’s On The Cinder earlier this year playing at The Fallout Shelter (also with Evad & the Ominous Squad), and they rocked hard. Iʻm looking forward to round two. I’ve also been trying to catch the newly reunited Fuck Yeah, Dinosaurs!, but something has always come up. Not this time, universe!
The Dwarves put on a crazy good show, plus you get local favorites Thunder Vest, Porno Tongue, and those festive lads at the Super Fun Time Awesome Party Band. Itʻs been ages since I’ve seen either Thunder Vest or Porno Tongue, so I’m psyched. Donʻt miss out on this stacked lineup in the cozy comfort of Lawrenceville’s favorite dive bar. I promise you’ll have a super fun time. It will be an awesome party. There will be bands.
