Mike Ness, this one’s for you

"Atom bomb! TNT! New disease! Poor city!" C'mon... ya know it...

As torch carriers for punk rock, we get a little excited when a good punk homage comes together. Remember the Never Mind the Bollocks tribute? Okay, bad example; we weren’t there, but we heard it was awesome. See, the Achilles’ heel of the local punk scene at times is getting word out. Not this time: We’re weeks away–plenty of time–from a tribute to Social Distortion’s Live at the Roxy, a 1998 three-night recording covering material from Mainliner up to White Light, White Heat, White Trash. Nice trip down tattoos-on-the-neck memory lane, eh? Peep the flier and more details after the break.

The show is March 27th at Lindberg’s, providing further proof that the bar is down for booking any genre of music and up for trying outside-the-box ideas. Meanwhile, we’re awaiting details on who exactly is in The Shin Kickers; sounds like a one-time-only band to us, sort of like the group that played the Highway To Hell tribute show at The Outland on Halloween. So how does a tribute to a live album sound… ya know, besides live? Guess we’ll find out in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, it’s time to get that copy of Mommy’s Little Monster off our CD shelf. We gotta bone up a bit.
