About Illazilla:

I'm in my 30s, live in my hometown of San Diego, & work in the zoological industry. A few favorite bands: (local) Rocket from the Crypt, Hot Snakes, Schizophonics, Beehive & the Barracudas...most bands associated with Swami Records, really; (non-local) Alkaline Trio, Descendents, ALL, Smoking Popes, Big Black, Jawbreaker, T.S.O.L., and The Mr. T Experience. I have a BA in history, and wrote about half of a thesis on punk rock and alternative music while working toward a MA, but abandoned it mostly because I lost interest in being a student. I go to lots of live shows between San Diego and L.A.; in particular I follow John Reis' many bands and rarely miss one of his gigs. My username comes from an old Vandals song.
