Just when things couldnt get any weirder regarding Black Flag...
Black Flag original members Keith Morris, Chuck Dukowski, and Bill Stevenson, along with guitarist Stephen Egerton (who played along Bill Stevenson in Descendents and ALL), spurred by crowd reaction to a surprise set at Goldenvoice's 30th anniversary show in 2011, have formed FLAG as a vehicle to continue performing the hardcore progentiors' repertoire.We now have dueling "Flag"s, this version and the previously discussed with Greg Ginn and Ron Reyes. I have a headache.
Catch the Morris version on the road in Europe and at Punk Rock Bowling in Vegas over Memorial Day Weekend (May 24 - 27) where they'll join names like The Damned (who are also playing Chaos), DRI, Lagwagon, Subhumans, The Bouncing Souls, Swingin Utters, Lower Class Brats and more. Tickets for Punk Rock Bowling go on sale Tuesday (1/29) at 1PM PST.
