This, from last Friday’s Bee, should get you up to speed on what’s been happening lately with Social D:
Just when you thought there was nothing left for this iconic Orange County punk band to achieve, Social D and its famed frontman Mike Ness pulled out a few more tricks.
The band released its first album since 2004 in January with “Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes.”
That earned Social D its highest spot on the Billboard charts ever (No. 4), its biggest first week of sales (46,366) and landed the band its first-ever live TV performance in 32 years.
Spin Magazine wrote in its review that 48-year-old Ness, “still howls with a raspy, exhilarating fury like Joe Strummer’s American cousin, sounding every bit the noble, road-tempered electric troubadour.”
Lucero and Chuck Ragan open the show. Tickets are still available online and last I heard (this morning), they were still on sale at The Laundry Room, SBI/Wavelengths and Valentino’s. The box office opens at 4:30 p.m., showtime is 6:30 p.m. Tickets cost $36
Nary one of you better complain about tickets being too expensive, either. Otherwise Angry Social D commenter will put down our entire city again.
