If you've become a little bored with SoCal punk or Seattle Grunge, take the
middle road and enjoy the refreshing sound of "NoCal Angst." Knapsack's first
fill-length release on Alias Records is energetic music with some powerful
lyrics. Singer/songwriter Blair Shehan, who is as mild-mannered as they come,
and his U.C. Davis friends unleash on "Silver Sweepstakes" with the tunes
Cellophane and Trainwrecker, and don't let go at all. Knapsack leaves you
yearning for more.
Unfortunately, they won't be going back into the studio for some time-
probably not until this winter. Fortunately, they are touring the U.S. right
now. This is a show you really should not miss, plus you can pick up their
latest album at the show, as well as talk to them a bit.
