skappleton Friday band night at Dr Jekyll'sPunk's Not Dead: A Night with Krap Spackle at SKappleton

Friday nights are for diving into new musical experiences, and this past one was no exception. Searching for something raw and riveting, I stumbled upon a lineup that sounded too intriguing to pass up. The band? Krap Spackle. The venue? Dr Jekylls in Downtown Appleton. The occasion? The SKappleton show.

Walking into Dr Jekylls, I had unfortunately missed the opening act, but the atmosphere was buzzing with anticipation. The setup was unconventional, with the band placed in a dimly lit corner of the bar. It wasn’t ideal, but there’s something about punk shows — the less polish, the more punk.

Krap Spackle took to the stage with an audacity that filled the room. As the first chords struck, it was clear these weren't just musicians; they were performers, turning every strum into a statement. The energy surged through the crowd, a pulsing, living thing that dared you to stay still.

After their set, I stayed for Kenny Maciejewski (of The Black and Blue Hearts band) & Friends. This wasn’t just another band; it was an explosion of sound and fervor. The highlight? A firecracker horn player who literally bounced with energy, engaging the crowd and transforming the set into a communal riot of joy.

Despite the need to duck out early for a fatherly duty—turkey hunting at dawn with my son—I left energized. Krap Spackle and the SKappleton lineup reminded me why stepping out of your musical comfort zone is a rewarding adventure.

For those who missed out, worry not—I captured photos and videos to bring a slice of the punk scene right to your screens. Whether you’re a punk aficionado or just curious, give these bands a listen. Change up your usual playlist and let a little punk rock rattle your bones.

So, check out the coverage, feel the vibes, and maybe next time, I’ll see you in the mosh pit!
