Black Flag pre/post-Rollins is like having Rollins Band without Rollins. No gang presence. The real fans are too poor for drugs. A total shit storm for the nose when you get that many crusty unwashed angst fueled teen virgins in the same room. Have fun?
With Postal Service selling out stadiums and shit it's highly doubtful we get a Fox Theater/El Rey show from them right?
I hope so
bahaha they are looking at MUCH bigger venues than fox/el rey
if it's gonna be a Coachella warm-up show they are not. It'll likely be Fox or Club Nokia or the Fonda or nothing.
Tmac knows things
all hail tmac, knower of things.
Im sure the eventual La date after Berkeley Greek is gonna end up being Staples Center. But odds are Fox Pomona. Probably Monday or Tuesday before they go to Phoenix.
Well you did make that deal, right.
the butthurt is strong with this one.
there can be only one who is butt hurt.
Postal Service? Staples Center?
http://www.youtube.com/user/Decontam...?feature=watch). He has an archive of full sets from hardcore/punk bands dating as far back as 80s. Everything from Black Flag, Bikini Kill, the Locust, the Smiths and etc. Pretty awesome!
Postal Service in ANY venue bigger than the Wiltern seems redic to me. They had ONE album a decade ago and is mellow as hell. Sleep inducing even. How the fuck people gonna go into an arena chill in the nosebleeds and enjoy that show at all?!?!? This and Passion Pit at MSG just makes no sense to me.

For these shows, we’ll be doing direct presales for a limited number of tickets. Presales will begin next week. More details, including venues and ticketing info, will be coming tomorrow. Stay tuned.
Oh shit! May have to try to get to that Chicago gig.
See- The Doors after the summer of '71
i'm gonna try to get a ticket for the SF show.
Who the hell is the Postal Service and how the hell did they get so popular?
How many threads are you going to ask that asinine question in?
I think suprefan just came out of the closet
Keith and Chuck both hate Ginn, and Ginn forced Chuck out of the band because he didn't like how he played. He said the same about Stevenson for some reason, but I think his biggest reason is that he has said he doesn't want to just be a nostalgia act and those guys all want to do their own thing and work in their own ways. Ginn is very particular about how he writes, records and plays, so he's gotta have control. I mean, he quit Black Flag because Rollins was getting too big and he couldn't get a new singer without people thinking that whatever Rollins did afterwards was the real heir to Black Flag.
I'm excited to see both for very different reasons. Flag will be fun to see them perform from all eras of the catalog, and to finally hear the My War, Slip It In and Loose Nut stuff with two guitars, but Black Flag is and always has been Greg Ginn's band. I'm more excited to see one of my favorite bands existing again.
And expect horrible reviews for the new albums, only to have that opinion change in 20 years, like they have with the post-Damaged work.
12th planet (and prob Skrillex since they're attached at the hip) at Low End Theory tonight...
