Earlier this year two Black Flags rose from the same grave. Guitarist and SST Records owner Greg Ginn fronts one bearing the hardcore pioneers' original name. The other, FLAG, shares four Black Flag alumni: Keith Morris (also of OFF!), Chuck Dukowski, Dez Cadena, and Bill Stevenson, as well as Descendents/ALL guitarist Stephen Egerton. Is it an artistic rejuvenation, a midlife crisis, or a cash grab? The only thing for certain is that FLAG are having fun playing the hits and letting the fury fly. It's easy to question the motives from afar, but all bets are off when that "Six Pack" bassline kicks in or when the band jump into the Morris-era "Wasted." With T.S.O.L. and Cerebral Ballzy. 18+.
