Episode 236: Charlie Garriga


Charlie Garriga may have started out in Cleveland playing for acts like Outface but things really changed for him when he moved to New York City, became a roadie for Quicksand and eventually went on to form the legendary NYHC band CIV and eventually become the guitarist for JUDGE. If you’re wondering how all of this happened, you’re in luck, because we get in depth about the early days of hardcore in Ohio, how Charlie became entrenched in the New York hardcore scene and, of course, discuss that one time he took the subway to Madison Square Garden to open for KISS. We also discuss everyone from Dwid to Mike Judge, how he went from starting pits to working the door at high-end clubs and the violence that dominated the scene back in the day. Trust us, you can’t wait one minute more for this amazing podcast with Charlie.
