Social Distortion week continues on Punk Outlaw. Tuesday night I’m heading to Mulcahey’s Bar in Long Island to check out the band as they pass NEAR New York City so I thought it would be cool to take a fresh look at the last time Social D. played at Mulcahey’s way back in 2007. Man how time flies?
I was near the front and was somehow able to fight through the roiling crowd and tape somewhat steadily (with my flipcam) the introduction before security goons shut me down (so 2007 of them!). The intro featured Mike Ness rolling on stage masked like an outlaw, tossing flowers to the crowd and playing the shit out of the guitar intro before getting into “Reach For The Sky”.
I haven’t heard this all instrumental tune since, but man I loved it then and I love it now. Maybe they’ll throw that tune on their new CD coming out this fall? Who knows?
It’s been 3 years since I taped this but I still get chills watching it. Hope you enjoy it as well.
