This Bike Is a Pipe Bomb

With Japanther and Self Destruct Button. Wednesday, August 9, at The Church in Tremont.


Punk's about a frame of mind, not a hair style or shirt from Hot Topic. This Bike Is a Pipe Bomb may not sound like Black Flag or the Clash, but in its 10 years of existence, the Pensacola, Florida trio has played more all-ages basement shows and VFW Halls than Dischord's entire roster combined. Its bustling folk-punk resembles one-time labelmate Against Me!, and they share a similar rabble-rousing aesthetic, though This Bike's approach is more lighthearted. Each of its three albums was recorded on a miniscule budget, and its following is cultlike, to say the least.
