It’s been over five years since reunited, seminal west coast hardcore outfit Black Flag last played Nashville, and a whopping 35 years since their last show before that. Formed in their youth way back in the ’70s, the group, who had a ton of members in their initial decade-long run, commanding a cult following in their day, and only managed to become more iconic and influential in the years after their 1986 split, making the hope of a reunion, despite chilly relationships and a general sense of disinterest between many key members, a long-running wish from fans. A handful of one-offs in the early ’00s notwithstanding, it wasn’t until 2013 that Black Flag roared back to life, albeit it with a retooled lineup anchored by guitarist and founder Greg Ginn. The new Black Flag released an LP and went on tour, then largely fell silent, until returning once more last year for a world tour, extending into 2020 with a long-overdue Music City return, this time at Cannery Ballroom on Jan. 30. Though they haven’t released any new music yet this run, we suspect most Black Flag fans want to hear the old stuff anyway, and that kind of nostalgia is still in full effect, even if a few of the group’s most recognizable former members are no longer involved (current singer Mike Vallely was never in the band pre-reunion, but has his own punk bona fides). Fans of classic punk will want to grab tickets right here while they last, but if you’d rather leave it to chance, we’re excited to announce that we’re also giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky fan!
