As a fan of punk rock and hardcore in general, I appreciated what Mike Ness and the boys in Social Distortion were doing musically, but to be pretty honest, I wasn’t ever the biggest Social D fan.

However, my first tattoo artist Mike J., who passed away several years back, was the biggest Social Distortion fan I probably have ever met and afternoons spent getting tattooed by Mike were scored by the tunes of The Fullerton, California five-piece who sang songs about impulsiveness and influenced a generation of punk rock bands including the likes of Pennywise, Face To Face, Rise Against, Green Day and Thrice to name a few.



After almost four decades of putting out music and touring, Ness and the dudes in Social Distortion prove that the punk rock is a legacy that will continue to grow through the annals of music history.

Saturday, September 2, $31-$50, 7pm, Aztec Theatre, 104 N. St. Mary’s St., (210) 812-4355, theaztectheatre.com.
