regarding Warren Oakes and Against Me!

Drummer Warren Oakes played his last show with Against Me! last night. He either quit or was kicked out; take your pick. On the plus side, he's opening a Mexican restaurant in Florida called Boca Fiesta. Road trip, prehaps?

I've said before that Against Me! was my generation's Clash, and apparently they're going through their post-Combat Rock phase. I guess guitarist James Bowman better watch out before he gets Mick Jones-ed. And I guess I can look forward to frontman Tom Gabel acting like a damn fool for a wee bit (Is Heart Burns his Earthquake Weather? Will the next AM! record be his Cut the Crap?).

It's been a shitty month for punk rock, ya'll.
