$12 IN ADVANCE / $15 DAY OF SHOW
DOORS: 7 PM / SHOW: 8 PM
After 16 years BLITZKID is going to be putting the nails in the coffin and this will be their final tour! The story of BLITZKID began in Bluefield, West Virgina in the dark and cold winter of '97. In the 16 years that they have now been a band, they have toured consistently all over the U.S. and Europe. Their aim was, to create something meaningful for themselves and others, forsaking fame and fortune for songs that stand the test of time. BLITZKID's position as one of the top bands of Horror Punk and above! Long live the horror.
The SCARRED is the last of a dying breed, the last cigarette in the pack, the last drop in the bottle. It's rock, punk, blues, and soul wrapped into one. This isn't a message of hope, it's an out right battle cry to those who still believe in music.
The PINKERTON THUGS are a Punk band from Kennebunk, Maine. While the band officially became the Pinkerton Thugs in March 1996 (taking their name from the infamous Pinkerton National Detective Agency), the band has been together since July 1994 under a number of different names. The band, which initially consisted of drummer/vocalist Paul Russo, guitarist/vocalist Micah Smaldone and bassist James Whitten drew influence from punk bands such as Sham 69, the Clash, Conflict, and Crass as well as Woody Guthrie's political ballads. They were known for their spirited live performances as well as their radical anarchist political views. Attempting to put their ideas to action, members of the band formed a now-defunct collective called the Anarchist Liberty Union which set out to distribute anarchist literature for free and establish better communication between activists. During most of the band's existence, Paul Russo was also a member of Boston band The Unseen, whom the Thugs often played shows with.
