10. THE CHAIN GANG OF 1974 @ HI-DIVE | SUN, 9/9/12
A couple years ago, it used to be you could see the Chain Gang of 1974 pretty much anytime you felt like it. Back then, Kamtin Mohager lived here and performed with dependable frequency -- when he wasn't on the road with 3OH!3, that is. Since then, however, Mohager moved to Los Angeles, where he made a big splash with Wayward Fire, his auspicious debut for the Modern Art imprint. He doesn't come back to town quite as often these days, which means when he does, like all things in life you tend to take for granted, it's a real treat to get to see him perform. Currently writing songs for his Warner Bros. debut, Mohager returns to the hi-dive this weekend, where he'll share a bill with the Photo Atlas and Pop Cult.

FIF actually is all "original" lineup.  Even though the Keith is opting to not play, the original guitarist Scott Kerr has rejoined the band and is playing bass.

 @sizetoosmall Guess it depends on your perspective: While there's no question that Sonnie, who took over guitar duties from Scott when he left the group, is certainly a longtime member, he was not a part of the "original" lineup, whereas Keith most definitely was. Splitting hairs here, really. Regardless, FIF is back, and this show is sure to be totally badass.
