Wednesday

Black Flag. They were one of the first hardcore punk bands in the USA and started up in Hermosa Beach, a steadfastly suburban and very bougie beach paradise on the Western tip of Los Angeles County. Once upon a time, Henry Rollins was their lead singer. Guitiarist Greg Ginn has been with the band since its inception, providing much of the creative energy needed to steer this version of punk rock away from the rocks of corporate condescension for the past 45 years. What else can one say about a band that’s influenced everyone from King Buzzo to Mastodon? If you still haven’t experienced what life under a black flag is like, they we highly suggest you make this show. It’s at Sister (407 Central Ave. NW) on Wednesday, Jan. 15. You might just dig the vacant and vicious vestiges of another age, as captured in songs like “Beat My Head Against the Wall” and “You’re Not Evil,” we sure did at the impressionable age of 21. 8pm • $20 to $25 • 21+.
