Portland's Best in Garage/Punk for 2017: Mr. Wrong, On drugs, Wave Action and G*U*N





Portland's Best in Garage/Punk for 2017: Mr. Wrong, On drugs, Wave Action and G*U*N

One of our largest polls yet has set so many great bands (and many of them, friends with one another) against each other in a fun battle to figure out the best in punk and garage for the 2017 year. After tallying up the votes, we've got your top two picks from the readers' poll and the overall (jurors' and readers') poll, so let's say a big congrats to:

Mr. Wrong

At barely a year or so old, the fierce power that comes from Mr. Wrong is undeniable. They scored the highest in our anonymous juror poll and if you've ever heard or seen them dish out their riot grrrl redux flavor then it all makes total sense. So far, we've only got their Distraction demo to enjoy along with their live sets, but hopefully we'll be seeing more from this collection of lovelies soon.

Wave Action

Second in line for our jurors' picks is Wave Action, whose relentless devotion to taking the stage has quickly garnered them much attention. If anything, they could go down in Portland's 2016 yearbook as "Band that Played the Most Shows," but there's absolutely nothing wrong with that, since they've got their hazy surf down pat. 

On drugs

With probably one of the best, straight to the point band names in town currently, On drugs embody what just about all of us Portlanders are all about - chillin' out, partaking in a substance or two, and listening to good music. They're gearing up to release their debut full length and from what we and the rest of you have seen of them, it's no wonder their weed rock was the top choice amongst our readers.

G*U*N

Everything about G*U*N, from their wild stage presence to their unapologetic in your face-ness, make them the perfect poster children for the modern hardcore punk movement. It might be hard to make out exactly what is conveyed through their savage screams, but what is known is how good their approach to the genre is.

Those these four took over our charts, much acknowledgement needs to be given to all of our participants!
