Jesse and the Hogg Brothers made a rare west coast appearance last week appearing at the infamous The Double Down Saloon in Las Vegas. The Hogg Brothers put a raucous hilarious set they got the local crowd plenty warmed up for an evening of good old punk rock with Anti-Social – Cosmic Beasts – Agent 86. This is my first time seeing the Hogg’s as they don’t get out west very often and I have to say they put on a fun evening of tongue in cheek honky-tonk country that brought the crowd to the dance floor.

In the hour long set front man Jesse Braintree and side kick vocalist Lisa Mari Hogg keep the crowd entertained between cuts from their two releases: “White Trash Meth Lab” and “Working For Yankee Money” on punk label Black & Blue Records. The band was tight & and hit on all cylinders with Stevie Joe Hogg & Buzz Hogg on guitars while Pappy Hogg (Bass) & JoJo Hogg (drums) held the back-line. The Double Down is a Vegas institution, think the west coast “CBGB”, covered in stickers floor to ceiling, cheap booze (Ass Juice and Bacon Martinis), & full of punk attitude and the Hoggs rocked it as well as any punk outfit that has graced its beer soaked stage. I highly recommend you check this out. Highlights: the entire show including a kick-ass cover of Hank III “Pills I Took” & their new track “Party in My Pants” which is getting national radio play on Top 40 stations across the country.
