Down By Law

Screeching Weasel (whose members all quit two years ago, leaving frontman Ben Weasel [the only founding member who had remained at that point] to continue the band on his own with a new lineup) and Down By Law are teaming up for a one-off show in NYC on June 15 at Irving Plaza. The show also features Huntingtons and Furious George. Tickets go on sale Friday (2/1) at 10 AM. Show flyer below.

Down By Law, one of the many bands fronted by Dave Smalley (who also fronted All, Dag Nasty, and DYS), reunited in 2008 and returned in 2012 with Champions At Heart, their first album of original material since 2003's Windwardtidesandwaywardsails. The album picks up with the same kind of melodic hardcore that the band left off with, and it might be more of the same but it's still fast, punchy, and a solid return after a nine year absence. You can watch the video for Champions At Heart track, "Warriors United," and listen to a spotify stream of the whole album below.

Ben Weasel, Chris Brown, and JP from Surfer Blood should start a supergroup.

Yeah, we get it. You hate Led Zeppelin. But they're still more legendary than you. So, case closed.

Ben pussy Weasel should stay out of NYC.

Honest question - when he turned around to hit the girl who grabbed him, do you think he noticed that it was a girl before he threw the punch or two or three?

Better off catching Teenage Bottlerocket & The Queers at Santos or Youth Brigade & Cockney Rejects in Brooklyn, much better lineups. Fuck ben weasel & wheres the updated Punk Rock Bowling fest post ?

Agreed 12:26, Joe Queer > Ben Weasel any day.

Down By Law is the only "PUNK" band that wont allow people to film their shows. I tried until someone from his pack came and made me stop filming and this was years before social media. Keep in mind, this was at a punk venue - no Terminal 5 shit. in other words- LAME.

Down by Law has and will always be a corny band.

GG Allin used to beat women as part of his show. People still idoloize him. Think about that one.

Weasel's an ass and Smalley's a dope, but I like Furious George Tabb though.

37 bucks?! Rocks Off is clearly smokin Rocks. I can go see 4 real punk bands for that price.

What happened to girl power and equality in punk rock? Leon Panetta just announced combat equality. You are a bunch of hypocrites.

2:55, the battlefield is not a mosh pit. there are no vegans in a war zone. Ranting about how superior you are for being straightedge will get you an article 15. Ben Weasel would make a great soldier, though. I've seen him do battle against liberal terrorists, and he is still fighting the good foight.

no wheeze the juice!

The only Weasel of grandiose self importance is Walter.

I wonder if we are witnessing a Dave Smalley mid-life crisis. I find it funny that he wasn't involved in that Dag Nasty geezer fest last month.

Lawyers are the persons who will be most affected by any outside interference in the enforcement of rule of law and the independence of the judiciary.
