Beat This, Hardcore Fans: OFF! Is Playing With Scream In DC. Let's Party Like It's 1981!
If ever a band could be accused of "Still Screaming," it would be OFF! Appropriate that Keith Morris and co. will be joining fellow hardcore vets Scream at the Black Cat in Washington, D.C. on May 27. DC punks The Shirks open. Scream originally formed in 1981 and went on to help define that era's hard core sound along side fellow hometown luminaries such as Minor Threat and Void. They continued on into the early '90s, eventually introducing elements of reggae, metal, and post-punk into their sound. They released five studio albums during their initial run and are often remembered for helping propel their second drummer, a young Dave Grohl, to the national stage in his pre-Nirvana salad days. Various members went on to play in Foo Fighters (backing up Grohl), Goatsnake, and Wool. The band's original line up (Peter and Frank Stahl, Skeeter Thompson, and Kent Stax) have played a series of reunion shows over the past couple years and have been writing and recording new material as of late.
