Black Flag Is Coming to House of Blues!

Punk legends Black Flag are coming to House of Blues Las Vegas. If you are ready to scream your lungs out, August 30th you know what to do.

About Black Flag.

Formed in California in 1976, Black Flag is one of the most influential hardcore punk bands ever. They are considered one of the first and pioneers of post-hardcore. Shit, they could probably even be considered one of the first political-punk bands, considering their nonconformist message.

Greg Ginn is the only original member in the current lineup. While, the majority of the band’s material was released during Henry Rollins tenure as vocalist (1981-1986). It should be noted that Keith Morris has an equally important history in this band on vocals from 1976-1979.

Although the band has gone through many lineup changes throughout the years, Ginn has held down the fort on guitar. He has continued to keep the band doing what it does best; scaring the piss out of the masses and spreading the gospel of punk.

The current line up consists of Greg Ginn on guitar, Joseph Noval on bass, Isaias Gil on drums, and Mike Vallely on vocals.

What About the Spin-offs?

Something that is as confusing as it is endearing about Black Flag’s music is the amount of people performing it. Earlier this year at the Punk Rock Bowling and Music Festival, Flag performed. Although there are iconic members in Flag, it’s not Black Flag, and Black Flag isn’t Flag. All it is is confusing schematics over a logo that were taking into and put to bed in court. What I am saying here is listen to the music and enjoy it. The issues with names and members don’t fucking matter. Just enjoy it all.

If you were at Punk Rock Bowling, cool. Now, come to House of Blues on August 30th and enjoy Black Flag.

Who Else Is with Them?

Stephanie " Stephy " Muzio (formerly Hayward) - Public Relations / Writer/ Photographer and Co-Founder of ZRockR Magazine Co-host of ZRockR Magazine LIVE! Stephy was raised on rock and roll. Originally from Illinois, Stephy is the daughter of an aspiring metal guitarist and a former rock n roll radio dj. Stephy’s first concert at the tender age of 8 was Rob Zombie at the original Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas, where she happily threw horns up and sang along to "Dragula" with the best of them ( she incidentally loves horror films too!) . She performed with the VGA choir at the 2007 Video Game Awards show at Mandalay Bay when it was hosted by Samuel L Jackson, sharing the stage with the likes of Foo Fighters as well as Kid Rock. An LVA alum, when she isn’t singing or playing herself (she plays a few different instruments), she is out in support of the local scene and at her friends gigs around the southwest and even when she is back home in Illinois! She has written as well as done some photography previously for a couple of smaller zines including Vegas SoundZ when it was in print. Stephy takes the adage of ” If it’s too loud that is just too damn bad! ” to heart- after all- she was raised around screaming guitars, thunderous drums, production studios and only Led Zeppelin and Nirvana played extremely loud would put her to sleep as a kid! Stephy is a large part of the backbone of ZRockR.
