Walter Schreifels, Dave Hill, Lena Hall & more playing AC/DC tribute @ Brooklyn Bowl

AC/DC Tribute at Brooklyn Bowl

AC/DC founding member Malcolm Young tragically passed away last month, and for those looking to honor his memory and music whilst rocking out, there’s an “all star tribute” to AC/DC happening at Brooklyn Bowl on January 4. The show will feature appearances from Quicksand frontman Walter Schreifels, his Gorilla Biscuits/CIV bandmate Arthur SmiliosLena Hall (Broadway’s Hedwig & The Angry Inch), comedian/musician Dave Hill, hard rock Beegees tribute act Tragedy, Brooklyn indie rock vets Palomar, Timo Ellis, and more. Tickets are on sale now. You can view the full lineup via the event’s flyer above.

Meanwhile, former AC/DC singer Brian Johnson eulogized Young in a post to his website, saying that Malcolm “left a legacy that [he doesn’t] think many can match.” Read his full statement below:

I am saddened by the passing of my friend Malcolm Young, I can’t believe he’s gone.

We had such great times on the road.

I was always aware that he was a genius on guitar, his riffs have become legend, as has he.

I send out my love and sympathy to his wife Linda, his children Cara and Ross,
and Angus, who will all be devastated…. as we all are.

He has left a legacy that I don’t think many can match.

He never liked the celebrity side of fame, he was too humble for that.

He was the man who created AC/DC because he said “there was no Rock,n,Roll” out there.

I am proud to have known him and call him a friend, and I’m going to miss him so much.

I salute you, Malcolm Young.

Malcolm’s funeral service was last week in Sydney, Australia, with family, friends, and his AC/DC bandmates in attendance. His famous guitar, “The Beast,” was placed atop his coffin during the proceedings.

Cheap Trick recently paid tribute to Malcolm, covering “Highway to Hell” during their show at The Cap two weeks ago.
