As longtime readers of TOSI probably know, a good deal of the older punk rock recordings on this site can also be found on The Rapid City Punk Rock Archive. As one of the many contributors to that site, I’ve spent a lot of time capturing, converting and uploading videos. The site grew to have a ton of information, but unfortunately, it was categorized very poorly. About six months ago I set out to change that. After countless hours of what was essentially data entry, we’re proud to launch the new version of The Rapid City Punk Rock Archive. Version 2.0 if you will. If you have any interest in punk rock from the mid-eighties through today, you should check it out. You’ll find photos, videos, music, flyers, and essentially a complete history of punk from a small town in South Dakota, population 60,000 (give or take). I was around to experience quite a bit of this stuff and consider myself lucky to have grown up in what was known as one of the punkest towns around.

Congratulations Kevin! I wish Atlanta had something like this. You have done a lot of hard work to document your local scene.
