When I think about the state of punk rock, it’s strange to consider that Keith Morris is still the one leading punks to the promised land.  Even at 60 years old, Keith Morris really has one of the only legitimate, new HARDCORE punk bands in America.  OFF! has all the elements of aggression, commentary and legitimacy that are required to achieve respect in a genre that eats it’s own.   It must be a strange thing to be a living icon.  That’s not something you can retire from.



OFF! is playing a two night stint at one of our favorite punk rock bars in the country; Alex’s Bar in Long Beach.  These dates serve as a celebration of Alex’s Bar’s 16 year anniversary. Both nights are chock full of impressive opening acts that range from established legends to legit, up and coming, next wave punks.  On Friday, Jan 29th OFF! will be joined by young guns, Kim and the Created, Death Hymn Number 9 and yet another solid and viable Matt Caughthran project, The Drips.  On Saturday, Jan 30th, OFF! is joined by legend Mike Watt and his Missingmen as well as a second consecutive night of The Drips and Toys That Kill.  Saturday is already sold out and Friday will be sold out by the time we award these tickets but you might be able to get the last tickets HERE

Janky Smooth is giving away two tickets to OFF! at Alex’s Bar for the Friday, Jan 29th show.  Winner will be selected on Thursday, Jan 28th at 10am pacific time.
