Gooood morning Wednesday warriors, and welcome to another installment of Wednesdays With Andrew, your weekly go-to for all things punk(ish) rock.

Now, I fucking hate to say this, will be deprived, FOR A SECOND WEEK IN A ROW, of my normal thought-out, carefully crafted write up. I suffered a concussion in the very early hours of Sunday morning and cannot spend a lot of time in front of a screen. Lucky for you, this means all the good music with none of my rambling thoughts on the subject matter.

The reason for the concussion is that I was assaulted by a very non-punk rock individual. Considering this occurred hours after the Charlottesville tragedy, it certainly gave me pause to contemplate the senseless acts of violence that people (of many diverse backgrounds!) perpetrate. These outbursts have reaffirmed in me the belief that violence is never the answer, and truthfully does not solve shit. Nothing like taking a good beating to confirm that you're a pacifist!

Anyway, here's a good article on ways to support victims of the Charlottesville attack, and to stand up to hate more broadly.

Annnd here's the link to the web player.

FYI for anyone wondering - the title was my patient ID when I was in the ER.

Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent
