The Psychedelic Furs were established during the prime era of the punk movement in London. The original members of the band included, singer Richard Butler, bass guitarist Tim Butler, saxophonist Duncan Kilburn, drummer Paul Wilson, and accompanying guitarist Roger Morris. The band was initially known for their avant-garde style of punk rock and later turned to a more hard rock sound.
She Wants Revenge is a band that may be more commonly known by the younger generation. This new-age rock band was birthed in San Fernando Valley, California in 2004. The band’s lead members consist of the multi-talented Justin Warfield and Adam Bravin. While being favored by the younger crowd, the band acquired more exposure to different audiences during their tours with Depeche Mode and Placebo.
Punk-rock enthusiasts are definitely in for a treat for this event. Musicians and fans will gather in solidarity for the punk scene. Make sure you reserve your tickets so that you do not miss these two iconic rock bands.
