What more can I say about Social Distortion other than they just completely rocked The Tabernacle stage last night in Atlanta GA.  The set included their hits amongst the underground life that we all grew up and sang along to, plus new songs like “Machine Gun Blues” and an awesome cover of a Hank Williams song “Alone” from the new album “Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes” to be released in mid January.

For me, I’d have to say it was one of my all time favorite shows.  Pure raw power and a handsome crowd made a combination of energy that only Social D could deliver!  The chemistry within the band showed the hard life of struggle and they brought it out in full force.  Mike Ness, with a voice we’re all familiar with was on top of his game, telling stories between songs that the crowd could relate to.  You had the suits and the punk rockers of all ages in one place together at the same time, weird I know but we all were there to get a taste of real music and to see how it’s really done!

Hat’s off to the opening bands Frank Turner and Lucero for getting us fired up for Social D.  All in all great venue, great staff, great music and a great time!!!  Rock -n- Roll will never die!!!
