On Saturday September 26th, Punk Rock Sewing Circle returns to the Verdi Club for an extended show of first era punk from 2:00-12:30 AM!
For those who missed SF Punk Homecoming in 2013, the Verdi Club is a historic Italian American Social Club in Portrero Hill. Constructed in the 1920’s, this hall charms with the faded elegance of Old San Francisco. On Saturday, the walls will reverberate with the sounds of first era punk as we celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Punk Rock!
Former Dead Boy, Cheetah Chrome will headline this outstanding event in a rare appearance.
The Mutants return with their first San Francisco show in over two years and The Avengers, San Francisco’s own punk legends, will take the stage with their classic punk anthems.
Alice Bag will make a long awaited return to San Francisco playing a special set of punk classics backed by our own Frightwig.
Never fear if you are looking forward to “A Man’s Gotta Do..” Frightwig will also play a separate set of their original music.
Seattle transplants, The Lewd, return with their original 1979 line up!
South Bay legends Los Olvidados and The Drunk Injuns return after an absence of decades and our very own VKTMS open the musical proceedings.
Writers Patrick O’Neil (Gun, Needle and Spoon) and Michael Stewart Foley (Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables) will be on hand to read and sign their recently released but soon to be punk classics!
Photographers Bobby Castro, Russell Allen, Mark Hanford, Alanna Alberts, and Andy Zicklin will exhibit their stunning photos of fans, bands, and memories on the historic walls of the Verdi Club!
For those who are wondering how to eat and not miss any of the sets, never fear! The talented chefs of the Verdi Club will be on hand with some delectable creations. And for those with a sweet tooth, Frozen Kuhstard will be stopping by with their fantastically indulgent frozen custard; outstanding in its simplest form and better even still dressed up as an adult sundae.
Join us in Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Punk– it only comes around once in a lifetime!
See you in September!
Oh yes, we almost forgot-we may have some very special guests dropping by ….
