AGNOSTIC FRONT -TONIGHT- AT WALTERS – JANUARY 24th
My friend and, according to the Houston Chronicle, “The Best Underground Promoter in Houston” Louis Villarreal’s Hate Tank Productions is bringing the legendary CBGBs hardcore punk band Agnostic Front to Walters tonight, Sunday, January 24th.
They’re on a world tour supporting the 25th anniversary reissue of their seminal albumVictim In Pain. Rolling Stone wrote that they are as important to New York Music as The Ramones or the Velvet Underground. Plus just yesterday, Louis confirmed for me that they will be playing the entire albumVictim In Pain all the way through.
This is the classic lineup of Roger Miret, Vinny Stigma, Rob Kabula, and Dave Jones playing together for the first time in 25 years. It’s really fashionable right now for bands to generate interest by playing their best albums front to back like this, but I’m pleasantly shocked and amazed that a band like Agnostic Front is doing it.
This is a rare Sunday show. After fighting the disgusting traffic in Houston all week, it’s nice to enjoy the rewards of living in such a big town. It really is amazing that they are playing here, and Walters is an amazing place to see a show. It should be terrific people watching. I’ve been in touch with all the fabulous musician types that I know here in town and they’re all going to be there. OH, and one more thing: if you’re worried about being out late on a Sunday night and having to work early the next morning -Louis, the promoter, told me that they’ll be going on as early as 10:00 so it’s not like you’ll be up moshing at 2:00a.m.
See you there!
