Underground Uprising, May 21, The Big Easy 

Local label 1332 Records has garnered a reputation for putting on shows that please not only attendees, but bring enough of them in to keep venues happy, too. 1332 just celebrated their two-year anniversary of Punk Mondays at the Bouquet and their regular Tuesday showcase, now titled Skate Night (they bring a half-pipe into the bar), is getting some buzz around town.

Label co-owners Levi Poppke and Byl Kravetz are familiar with the local punk music scene from the points of view of show promoters, distributors and musicians. Kravetz's band, Wilson St. Pub & Sluthouse Band, used to perform regularly and drew loyal, raucous crowds. With lead guitarist Kahlil Linane's move to the Midwest to study tattooing, WSP&SB called it quits, leaving Kravetz a little more time to devote to the label.

The work has paid off and 1332 now has a stable full of metal and punk rock fillies who play regularly at The Bouquet, among other places. Kravetz said the offer of a night at the Big Easy (and a request from the venue for a big show) gave him not only the opportunity to showcase most of the label's bands, but to set-up a WSP&SB reunion show, which Linane is flying in for.

If you mourn the loss of WSP&SB or can't get your head around just what one night of music with them and A Thousand Effigies, Postmortem Twitch, Wilt Chamberlin's Baby and The Casket Chronicle might be like, check out the show they're calling Underground Uprising.

May 21, $5, 7 p.m. The Big Easy, 416 S. 9th St., 208-367-1212.
