T.S.O.L., Left Alone, and the Burnz, The Stranger
El Corazón Eastlake
Thu., Jan. 14, 8 p.m. 2016 All Ages
Grab some eggs, or your favorite vegan egg substitute, and getcher spikes sorted ’cause this looks like the first prime punk show of ’16. T.S.O.L., aka True Sounds of Liberty, are a long-running, old SoCal punk band. By my estimate, they’ve been active in some shape or form since 1979, including their goth-ish/death-rock phase in the mid-’80s AND a late-’80s hair-metal detour. Locals the Burnz promise to brang the solid, melodic, and up-tempo rockin’ punk. Their jams are shaded with Raw Power-era Stooges, filtered through the cotton balls of the early-’90s hard rock; like, their songwriting would’a made the fellers in the Fluid jealous. Also, Cali pop-punks, and Warped Tour vets Left Alone are also on the bill. MIKE NIPPER
