Drive Goal:


Life During Wartime

Life During Wartime started in 1995, and is on every other Wednesday night from 10 pm until midnight (PDT), here on KBOO. We play DIY Punk And Hardcore records, have live bands, and do a  local shows listing for the Portland area (annihilate this week ) right around 11pm.

We want your records!! Send them to Life During Wartime /PO BOX 1113 / Portland, OR / 97207-1113

If you have the misfortune of living outside of the Portland area, you can listen to the whole two hour show for two weeks at Live Band sets will also be posted on the website, eventually.

"...Total UK82, VARUKERS, CHAOS UK, style. Raw for sure, but not super distorted and noisy like most bands doing this style these days.This shit is puking, pogoing, fuckin' punks roaming the streets in packs on the hunt for cider. Absolutely great and one of the best things I,ve heard in a while" - Justin Briggs
