The Misfits at Starland Ballroom
Friday, April 1st, the Misfits played the Starland Ballroom. The line-up consisted of Dez from Black Flag on guitar, Marky Ramone of the world famous Ramones on drums, and, of course, the AMAZING Jerry Only on bass! Besides playing many Misfits hits, the set also included, "Rise Up" from Black Flag and hits from the Ramones such as, "Blitzkrieg Bop" and "Sheena's a Punk Rocker". I STILL can't believe I was able to hear all these amazing songs! NEVER, would I have imagined to hear Misfits, Ramones, and a Black Flag song all in one night! Everyone went crazy for the three legends and if they EVER come to a town near you, CHECK IT OUT!!
Besides the amazing headliners, the openers weren't too bad either, Divinity Destroyed, an amazing Jersey band helped create some insanity with their own unique style of technical drums and innovative break downs.
One act that did disappoint though was, The Killing Machine, another local band that was basically a bunch of 40 year old body builders trying to pull off, what seemed to be, a bad cover of a cross between Godsmack, Alince in Chains, and Black Label Society.
Overall, the show was EXCELLENT, and, as stated before, I strongly recommend checking out the Misfits with the amazing Jerry Only, the world famous Marky Ramone, and the superb Dez from Black Flag.
