Lower Class Brats: 20 years strong and shredding

Bones and Conflict.

For the second time in the last three years, the Lower Class Brats topped the punk list in the Austin Music Awards' best performing bands category.

Congrats to Bones, Conflict, Volume and Punt (our cousin Eric) and keep rippin' it up.

Here's Bones' speech from last week's awards ceremony:

"2015. This year marks the 20 year anniversary of the Lower Class Brats. And in celebration of that, I can't think of a cooler thing than receiving this award right now. When the band started in 1995, we were playing local shows at local clubs like the Blue Flamingo, Liberty Lunch, the Voodoo Lounge, Bates Motel and Emo's. All of which are long gone. And very sorely missed.

But as Austin changed (for the better or for the worse), we have refused to change with it. Yes, we play all the newer clubs now. But we'll never change the type of music we play in honor of all the great bands that came before us and to hopefully influence a handful of bands that will continue to fly the punk rock flag long after we are gone."

Thanks to Allan Hayslip for providing the photos from LCB's recent gig in Dallas.
