A large Atlanta contingent made the trek to Orlando last weekend for Total Punk's two day festival, Total Fuck Off Weekend II.

Atlanta's current crop of punk bands, and its working partnership with the Orlando scene, was on full display last weekend (March 27-28) at Total Punk's Total Fuck Off II festival. Uniform, Slugga, Wymyn's Prysyn, and Predator performed and brought some friends along for the ride. Adding to the Atlanta presence was New York's Foster Care, featuring Josh Martin (Carbonas, Beat Beat Beat) on drums. The local contingent were able to see a who's who of gunk punk, ranging from Louisiana and Alabama based Gary Wrong Group to an unlikely appearance by New York garage legend Ned Hayden's Action Swingers.

The heavy Atlanta presence at the festival should come as no surprise, as the local punk scene has numerous ties to Orlando. Slugga, fronted by former Orlando resident Mark Bonner, was hand-delivered its new Total Punk single at the festival. In addition, Total Punk boss Rich Evans is often found around Atlanta, as Predator member and Scavenger of Death co-owner Ryan Bell records Evans' band Golden Pelicans in the basement of band mate and business partner, Greg King. Keep your eyes and ears peeled, as both Predator and Foster Care will have their next record issued by Total Punk later this year.
