Concert News: Social D gets a venue change

Word this morning from promoter Tim Gardea is that his Feb. 16 Social Distortion show is moving to a different venue — Rainbow Ballroom, which will be familiar to Social D fans, because that’s where the iconic punk band’s last Fresno show took place.

Otherwise, not much has changed with the show. Tickets already purchased are still good at the new venue. Originally, the show was scheduled for the EOC Events Center, a new gymnasium that would have been hosting its first big concert.

Gardea attributed the move to “circumstances with the original venue beyond our control.” (Let’s be real — you kinda saw this coming, right, Social D fans?)

Tickets are on sale for $36 at The Laundry Room, Valentino’s, SBI and

BTW, the band’s new album, “Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes” is out next Tuesday.
