Street punk devotees' split 7-inch arrives on Halloween

D.D.C. and Antagonizers ATL unveil their split record tonight with a free show at the Highlander.

Image Like-minded street punk and oi purists Antagonizers ATL and D.D.C. (Drink and Destroy Crew) celebrate the release of their split 7-inch (Rebel Sound) tonight (Fri., Oct. 31) with a free show at the Highlander.

Antagonizers ATL’s side kicks off with “Pressure,” a brief, energetic ripper that mixes heavy guitar riffs with gang-style vocals, reminiscent of U.K. oi progenitors Blitz. “The Crew” builds on the band’s strong suit, which is its ability to write sing-along anthems about unity and self-respect.

Fellow local act D.D.C. mixes street punk influences with Rancid-style melodies and early American hardcore on a couple of catchy stompers about patriotism (“Victory”) and owning who you are in the face of doubters (“Hated”). All four tracks evoke Atlanta street punk's late '90s heyday, without sounding like retreads.

Antagonizers ATL and D.D.C. play a record release show with the Red Phantoms tonight (Fri., Oct. 31) at the Highlander. Free. 9 p.m. 931 Monroe Dr. 404-872-0060.
