The Dragoons- Nite of The Hot Rods, 7/16/11 Antioch, CA
If I were older, I'd probably be sitting here rattling on about how nice it is that the younger generation is carrying on the tradition, blah blah blah, but I'll leave that to someone else. As someone in the same relative age bracket as most of the Dragoons, I'm really happy to see my contemporaries doing cool shit and making this great show happen in Antioch, of all places. This show is always impressively packed with killer cars that always makes you take pause by the end of the night and wonder how, exactly, these punk kids (and punk-kid-minded adults) manage to drag such top quality cars out to a parking lot next to a public fishing pier by the railroad tracks. The secret? Honestly, if you met these guys you'd do anything you could to make what they've got going on out here a success. I was booth-bound for most of the show, but thankfully MLV held down the fort for a few minutes while I ran frantically to take a few pictures of the beautiful show. Custom cars, punk rock, and great people, if that's not enough to get you out to a show I don't know what is. Enjoy:
