Chrome Cranks @ Cake Shop 2010 (more by Keith Marlowe)
Chrome Cranks

Lots-o lots-o punk in the coming months, everything ranging from sugar-y sweet pop-punk to classic european styles and everything in between!

The Chrome Cranks are back again, and will play NYC with Star & Dagger at Mercury Lounge on 10/13. Tickets are on sale. So far the show is the only current date for the NYC-by-way-of-Ohio band, but we'll keep an eye out.

As previously mentioned, Fat Wreck Chords will celebrate their CMJ with Lagwagon, Dead To Me, The Flatliners, and Useless ID a showcase at Music Hall of Williamsburg on 10/19 followed by a second show aboard a Rocks Off Concert Cruise on 10/20. Tickets for both shows (MHoW here, Rocks Off here) are on sale.

Scottish punks The Rezillos have hibernated from their slumber and will play a Rocks Off presented show at Bowery Electric Nov 10, joined by NYC's own Murphy's Law. Tickets are on sale. The show marks the band's first NYC appearance in more than a decade.

The Vibrators will play Bowery Electric on September 29th with The Dead Tricks. Tickets are on sale. So far, no word on a larger set of dates for the UK punkers, but all existing dates are below.

The Angry Samoans will head out for a string of Midwest/East coast dates in October that will include a stop at Grand Victory on 10/5 with The Cryptics and Violent Bullsh*t. Tickets are still available. IIn related news, Samoan Gregg Turner has been busy successfully crowdsourcing his new LP, Plays The Hits which is self-described as "goofy folk rock" with some elements of punk in there and a cover of Roky Erickson's "Starry Eyes".

What's left of The Misfits will hit the road for a string of dates in October, ending in what is now their customary Halloween show (10/31), this time at Highline Ballroom with Attack and Heart of The Matter. Tickets are on sale. Buyer beware and all of that.

As previously mentioned, punk crew The Queers will team with Agent Orange for a Rocks Off Concert Cruise on August 18th (tickets)

Manitoba features none other than Handsome Dick Manitoba, he of The Dictators fame. Look for some Dictators songs built into their set at The Studio at Webster Hall on 9/22. Tickets are on sale.

With more than 30 years as a band under their belt, The Toasters will kick-off a month long tour in October that will wrap up a month later and include a show at Knitting Factory 11/2. Tickets are on sale.

It's not quite the same, but Jack Grisham's LOST Soul (featuring the music of T.S.O.L. and the Joykiller) comes to Studio at Webster Hall on August 19 with The Dead Tricks and Working Disorder. Tickets are on sale.

And last but not least, Dan Vapid & The Cheats are in the midst of a string of East Coast dates that will include an 8/18 stop at Knitting Factory. Tickets are still available and the full slate of dates is below.
