Oblivians Show

memphis tennessee

in the early 1990s when the press and the public’s pockets were focused on the sob-ass spawn of seattle, like so many times in history, the rawhide real deal was going down in middle america, the motor city and memphis tapping their pasts and forging the future, the g o r i e s  and the oblivians for example.  the musicians are still at it with various outfits, and oblivians reformed for a killer new album and a kick tour to kick it off, kicking the asses of all the copycats that surfaced in their wake.  here’s a few grainy shots from the slippery floor of their pdx show, 7-11-2013, blood, sweat, and beers.
