Black Flag - Club Red, Tempe - 7/11/13

Black Flag Club Red Thursday, July 11, 2013

The idea of Black Flag coming to town works in principle. Seeing the remnants of an iconic punk band that hasn't performed in Phoenix in decades sounds good in theory, but the reality is that Black Flag has gone through so many lineup changes that seeing the band is a bit of a gamble, especially when the ticket prices are high.

That didn't stop fans from piling into Club Red on a weeknight to see one of the currently touring Black Flag reunions, this one featuring the band's sole consistent member, Greg Ginn, on guitar with Ron Reyes on vocals.
