NO FLAG, ALL RIGHTEOUSNESS
Photo by Lance Bangs
Last night, following No Age's set at MacArthur Park in Los Angeles, infamous site of LAPD hooliganism (start here to learn more: LA Times), this happened: an unannounced bonus set (6 songs, 10 minutes), NO AGE plus original BLACK FLAG members bassist Chuck Dukowski and vocalist Keith Morris, playing classic BLACK FLAG songs... NO FLAG!
NO FLAG setlist: "Wasted," "Revenge," "Fix Me," "I've Had It," "No Values," "Nervous Breakdown"
"You security people, could you just please stand where you're at and not move?" - Keith Morris turns the tables on the LAPD. Unbelievable, intense, historic.
Major kudos to FYF Fest promoter Sean Carlson (and the City of LA) for making this righteous & beautiful event possible.
