The Details: In the annals of Hardcore music history, there are few bands who are as influential and as cited as The Dead Kennedys. They were formed in 1978 and quickly became kings of the underground movement for the growing scene. For years they were fronted by the enigmatic presence of Jello Biafra but he has long been out of the lineup which leaves only East Bay Ray, Klaus Floride, D.H. Peligro as the band with Ron “Skip” Greer on vocals. Either way, it’s an exciting opportunity to be able to offer a couple of PiercingMetal.com readers the chance to enjoy the show for free thanks to the fine folks at Livenation for their show at Irving Plaza. They’ll be joined by Reagan Youth as well. It’s time to lace up those boots dear readers.
When and Where: Thursday, June 19th at 6:30pm @ Irving Plaza (17 Irving Place, NYC)
To Participate: Just let me know what the band’s music means to you as a fan of this kind of stuff and I will pick a couple of the best comments out of the responders. Once in awhile I like to keep this simple for the world and mind you based on the show being right here I will be closing this one up very quickly so if you snooze you might very well lose.
Restrictions: While all PiercingMetal.com contests are open to our regional site readers, we look at new responders first in order to give everyone a fair shot at enjoying a show on the provider and us. Of course we still encourage all to respond because you never know just how many tickets we are offering.
