Black Flag Comes to the crooked i Tonight by Alex Bieler

It’s not often that people get really excited about a Tuesday before a series of 8 Great ones hit the bayfront, but thanks to the crooked i, an extended case of the Mondays shouldn’t be in effect tonight.

The iconic hardcore punk band comes to the State St. establishment, marking tonight as arguably the biggest flag-related event this week (sorry, Flag Day enthusiasts). For those regular Reader readers out there, you may remember that I highlighted the show in last issue’s To-do List, interviewing the crooked i proprietor Marty Schwab about the legendary Hermosa Beach, Calif. Band.

Well, now that the day has come, we hope you already got your tickets to the show. On the off chance that you haven’t, make sure to head to and order you and your friends some tickets now, because online sales end at 3 p.m. according to the site. If there are still tickets left, you may have a chance to purchase them at the door, but instead of hoping for some last-minute luck, I’d suggest you purchase them earlier rather than later unlike some other people. People are coming in from out of town for this show, and you never know who could end up taking the ticket you thought you’d end up getting right before the show.

In addition to Greg Ginn, “Jealous Again”-era vocalist Ron Reyes, and the Black Flag crew, skateboarding icon Mike Vallely and his band Good For You will also be playing. In fact, Ginn, Black Flag’s sole continuous member, will be playing with Good For You as well, so you’ll get a double dose of his high-energy guitar work on the night.

Doors open at 8 p.m., with the show kicking off at 9 p.m., so you’ve got a few hours left to prepare yourself for a night full of hard rocking on a not-so-average Tuesday.
