Misfits, Flag (an assemble of Black Flag's earliest cast) and Subhumans certainly need no introduction to the punk world. The legacy passed down by these artists not only changed the landscape of punk, but music in general. Even though Jerry Only sang Glenn Danzig's parts and Keith Morris was in charge of songs later made famous by Henry Rollins, fans still shouted the words and slammed in manic appreciation. With the exception of Misfits, who played a club show as part of the FFF Nites attraction, the Black stage--the stage I primarily report--focused on punk rock. Day two of my first FFF experience in 2011 operated with a similar punk roots bands The Damned and Negative Approach.

Quicksand played to a packed Slim's along with Mastodon, High on Fire, Saviours and Hot Lunch during Converse Represent in San Francisco at the end of last week. The shows were free with fans registering for tickets at conversemusic.tumblr.com.
Alan Cage, who has done time in Burn, Seaweed, and Quicksand, has officially joined 108 on drums. Here's a statement from the band:
"We are stoked to announce that Alan Cage will be joining 108 on the drums. The first time the public will get their ears on it will be our South American tour in April. Alan replaces Tom Hogan, who stayed with us for over a year, contributed significantly to our newest release on Deathwish, and has become an important member of the 108 family. We wish him the best for his musical future."
108 is currently writing a new album, to be released on Deathwish Inc. later in 2008.
