Rancid, Suicidal Tendencies, L7 & more playing inaugural touring fest The Bash
The Bash Music & Craft Beer Festival is new touring punk festival going down this spring, co-presented and headlined by Rancid (who produced the fest with Synergy Global Entertainment, Inc. and Brew Ha Ha Productions). Crossover hardcore vets Suicidal Tendencies and reunited grunge greats L7 are also on all dates. Most cities have direct support from Pennywise, except Phoenix where The Mighty Mighty Bosstones replace them. Other support bands vary by city, including Madball, H2O, and more.
There will also be "up to four hours of craft beer tastings featuring over 100 craft beers, including some of the best local favorites," and the debut of Rancid's own beer, Ska Brewing's Brewstomper Golden Ale. Tim Armstrong says: "I’m looking forward to playing with some of my favorite bands in the world. Pennywise, Suicidal Tendencies, L7, and more. We look forward to seeing everyone out at The Bash!"
The fest begins in Phoenix and also lands in Tucson, AZ; Englishtown, NJ; Boise, ID; Tacoma, WA; San Jose, CA; and Sacramento, CA. Dates and full lineups for each city is below. Tickets for each date go on sale Friday (2/22) at 10 AM local time.
