From 1978 to 1986 Black Flag had 18 members. It's only fitting that the reincarnation filter through a few more. Reborn last year and rising for the festival circuit near the same time as the related but unaffiliated FLAG, the Greg Ginn-led hardcore outfit hits Minneapolis for their first club show in town since the mid-'80s. Along with Ginn, the lineup at press time includes pro skater Mike Vallely on vocals, and Tyler Smith and Brandon Pertzborn rounding out the rhythm section. Black Flag are American hardcore pioneers, spawning a harsh sound that still struggles to live up to its original intensity. The band also spawned SST Records, home of many Hüsker Dü recordings. With HOR and Cinema Cinema. 18+.
