Sham 69 Returning to the USA
Dave Parsons, Sham 69
What year is this? Its the Summer of 2007, and after 30 years of making noise, punk rock is still going strong - and playing in big venues, and (hopefully) earning respectable guarantees.
Next week, a couple years after they celebrated and benefitted the CBGB concern, Sham 69 are back touring the States. They have always been one of my favorite bands (and Dave Parsons and I are basically twin siblings of different parents, as we share a birthday). So, I'm going to catch them at the House of Blues on Sunset Blvd. with The Dickies!
The Dickies have always been near and dear to my punk rock heart as well. LA's favorite sons still going strong and driving all you Big Gorillas Ape with their wild and crazy show.
