This Just In: New Concerts and On-sale Dates
While Christie Front Drive parted ways close to 15 years ago, the group reunited for a gig in 2007 at the Marquis. Anyone who missed the band's killer shows during the mid-'90s already knows the group was one of the finest acts to come out of these parts during that time. But if you didn't have a chance to check out Christie Front Drive in its heyday, the group is doing another reunion show of sorts at the Larimer Lounge on Sunday, August 28. Tickets ($10) are on sale now.
Legendary Irish punkers Stiff Little Fingers, who formed in 1977, hit the The Summit Music Hall on Saturday, August 20. Tickets ($20) are on sale now.
