Coke Bust is Chris, James, Nick and Jubert from Washington, D.C.

This "after-show" was in a warehouse space in the Central District of Seattle called the Nuthole. Replica (Oakland) also played. Both Coke Bust and Replica played RAINFEST earlier in the day at Neumo's a couple blocks away.

Coke Bust pretty much single-handedly holds down the D.C. hardcore scene today. They mix stomping breakdowns and gruff vocals with endless pounding blast beats by prolific drummer Chris Moore (Six Fix, Magrudergrind, Disciples of Christ). You might think they are "just another straight edge band," but they have thoughtful lyrics about the degradation of workers, resistance to the system, and real personal hardships. Even their classic song and first E.P., "Fuck Bar Culture" critiques culture rather than individual actions. Anyway, the point is that this band rips, and keeps it real, and they tour a lot as well as have put out a lot of great records, so don't miss out.
