This is the second
week in a row that we've chosen a flier that looks like some kind of sadistic, Hardy Boys book cover. But if a band is willing to sift through endless 50-cent novels to find one that will catch your attention, then by golly, they deserve a salute every now and then. This week's flier--featuring old school punks the Gears
--narrows our visual interests down to the bare essentials: devils, horse whips and lingerie.
On Sunday, the revered LA outfit is raging on stage at DiPiazza's in Long Beach alongside local faves Gestapo Khazi
. Saturn, Joe's Garage and M.H.V. (Ms. Hannah's Victoms) are also on the bill. It's an unholy line-up of thrash punk fit for a Sunday evening at LBC's best pizza/punk rock joint. The $10 cover is a bit steep, but we're willing to bet that a raucous live set from the Gears and Gestapo will be worth it. Well, at least Satan seems to think so.
