SoCal Punk Rock Retrospective Set for Saturday at Voodoo
When I was five years old, my parents walked in on me listening to “Achy Breaky Heart.” By the time I started singing along, they simply had enough. A stern talk ensued, and I quickly learned that I was the son of punk rock parents.
They still ridicule me to this day about that incident, but luckily for them, I ended up loving rock music once I finally found my musical identity. Blink-182 became one of my favorites, and my family bonded over headbanging to “Dammit” on rides home from school.
Wesley grew up in coastal Georgia and is a former resident of The Music City and the Big Easy where he helped get Live Music Blog: NOLA off-the-ground, managing it in New Orleans through Jazz Fest 2012. Hodges now lives amongst THE CALIFORNIANS as a newcomer to West LA. His favorite artists include My Morning Jacket, Sigur Rós, Widespread Panic, The Allman Brothers Band, Dr. Dog, Tame Impala, Anders Osborne, Radiohead and Bobby & The Midnites.
Daft Punk is actually playing at his house tonight and you're invited.
