Concert Review: Japanther and Ninjasonik at the Jackpot Music Hall


Positive Mental Attitude is thought to have originated from the ’70s D.C. hardcore band Bad Brains. P.M.A. is still alive and actually thriving as I witnessed last night at the Jackpot in Lawrence.

Japanther and Ninjasonik, two bands from NYC, rolled into town and really showed us how they do as they headlined for local bands Fortuning and Coat Party.

Fortuning kicked off at 11pm. The three-piece band from Lawrence brought to mind my piano teacher from way back in the 1980s. Her name was Kitty McClintock and she always said, “Practice, practice, practice!” She was right. Fortuning, just keep practicing. P.M.A. All the way.
