CL Critic Jess Goodson Recommends: There’s a lot of punk bands in Atlanta, but one thing is for certain – there is only one Upchuck. Never in my life have I seen a crowd in EAV get as rowdy as they do when they see this garage punk five-piece live. Their 2022 debut album Sense Yourself kicks off strong with their self-titled single, giving listeners a taste of their punk-rock debauchery and raucous lyricism that very clearly translates to their live performances. You can see what all the fuss is about at their show supporting LA-born hardcore punks, Off!. — JG
From the venue:Purgatory at The Masquerade. Upchuck is a five piece band from Atlanta, formed from connections made in skateboarding, construction, and teenage delinquency. The band is lead guitarist Mikey, Rhythm guitarist Hoff, bassist Armando, drummer Chris, and vocalist KT – who combined are inventively raucous and revolutionary.
