Basement Transmissions is abandoning the stage to relive the up-close-and-personal, in-your-face, no-b.s. experience of the old BT with their Punk Floor Show series, currently on its second installment on July 24.

The lineup includes locals Frame and Mantle, Till the End, and My Secret Weapon, Genetically Enhanced Super Humans (GESH) from Meadville, and touring bands Bear Girl and Iselia, coming up from North Carolina and Georgia, respectively.

In true BT fashion, a wide array of styles will be prevalent at the show, ranging from ‘80s punk stylings by GESH, post-rock indie from Frame and Mantle and Bear Girl, and a set of post-rock/screamo hybrid tunes by Iselia.

In gaining a larger venue and hosting more popular bands to bigger crowds since their move last year, part of what made the old Basement Transmissions great was lost (no disrespect).  Fifteen people at a show made the place feel packed, and now looking at 15 people from the stage at a smaller show doesn’t feel quite the same. It’s good to see that the BT crew hasn’t forgotten its roots, and is bringing some shows back down to earth. – Tom Shannon
