Back in the late '70s and early '80s, Honolulu had a small but close-knit punk scene. Poi Dog Pondering started out
in Hawaii before relocating to Austin, then to Chicago. Two members of Boston's Dambuilders
started out as the eXactones. Many other bands -- such as The Wrong
-- would relocate to the Mainland, hoping to seek an audience they couldn't quite find back home (embedded autoplay audio)
. Dave Carr was involved with a lot of these bands, and the Hawaii 70s-80s Punk Museum
from much of his own collection
I was way too young to go to any of the shows played by these bands, but I did eventually get to learn about them in high school when I picked up the No Place to Play
compilation from Jelly's Comics and Music.
