Wednesday, July 17, 2013’s Chowdown

Here is a brief list of recent and future tour dates for punk legends Black Flag:

  • 07/14/13 Los Angeles, CA @ Vex Arts
  • 07/15/13 San Diego, CA @ SOMA
  • 07/17/13 Redway, CA @ Mateel Community Center
  • 07/18/13 Portland, OR @ Hawthorne Theater
  • 07/19/13 Seattle, WA @ El Corazon
  • 07/20/13 Vancouver @ Chinese Cultural Centre
  • 07/22/13 Sacramento, CA @ Ace of Spades
  • 07/23/13 Oakland, CA @ Oakland Metro Operahouse

Notice any sore (but beautiful) thumbs on that list? Good on you, SoHum. You scored. 

To be clear, the Black Flag lineup that will take the Mateel stage on Wednesday night is not the most famous revered, Henry Rollins-includin’ version of the group that broke ground for the genre in the early ‘80s. The only member that remains with the group from that storm in guitarist Greg Ginn. The current front man of the group is Ron Reyes, who was actually the lead singer that directly preceded Rollins in the Black Flag lineage. So, keep that in mind if your some sort of band purist. Many are.

But if you’d like a taste of what the current crew is capable of, check out the promo clip for their latest single “The Chase” above.

Also Wednesday, the Humboldt Folklife Festival rolls on with its annual Country Night which is headlined by a rare performance by Huckleberry Flint, who are unequivocally awesome for reasons we’re just not even going to go into here. At last check, there are still tickets available. Find out for yourself.
