This Week in Print: Street Dogs and Devil's Brigade
Local punk fans have it pretty easy this Friday with the massive lineup of Sick of It All, Street Dogs, and Devil's Brigade gathered at Revolution for a night combining hardcore, the Irish-inflected Boston punk sound, and psychobilly. The latter two acts -- both Hellcat Records signees -- are profiled in Christopher Lopez'slead music feature
Fans of Rancid who have been hiding under a smelly rock for the past few years should note that Matt Freeman and Tim Armstrong from the legendary outfit make up two-thirds of Devil's Brigade, but the faces will be the most similar part of the performance. This stuff is a lot grittier than any of the Clash-inspired side of Rancid.
