This DVD is from a show recorded at the Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco, California on May 17th 1995. It features performances from 4 bands:

The first band is the Nukes and they were okay. I never heard of any of these bands opening up for the Swingin’ Utters. But I think I liked the Nukes the most out of the bunch. Jack Killed Jill is a female fronted band, and I’m not really a fan of too many female fronted punk bands. I don’t know why, maybe it’s the voice. Before and during the set, the bands get interviewed briefly by someone. Usually just saying who they are and what they do in the band. You know, hard thinking questions. The footage of this show is kind of mediocre. Though, It’s almost 10 years ago so it’s understandable if the video isn’t up to par from today’s standards.

The last band, the Swingin’ Utters play the best set and clearly the better band out of all the groups performing on this DVD. I’ve become a big Utters fan since “” came out. They get better and better with every album they put out. This set contains songs from the “Streets of San Francisco” and I didn’t know Spike wasn’t in the band back then. I believe Spike replaced Max in the band. You might also know Spike from Me First and the Gimme Gimmes. From watching this set, I really want to see the band perform next time they tour New York. Swingin’ Utters’ fans might want to get this DVD for the Swingin’ Utters’ performance but the rest of the bands aren’t that special.
