There's live music. And then there's everything else.
Only the birth of a child, they say, can trump the wave of emotions that floods a music fan when his favorite band takes the stage. And for most musicians, that same level of euphoria repeats itself on each new record and tour. So to say that veteran Southern California punk outfit Face to Face is happy to be touring North America in support of its latest record, Three Chords and a Half Truth, is an understatement.
The band is thrilled.
"We are superstoked with how the new record came out, and we've been having a great time being back out on the road and playing shows again," Face to Face frontman Trever Keith recently told Live High Five music blog.
Before the group hops the pond for a string of European festival dates, Face to Face is stopping by Revolution Live for a night of power chords and punk on Wednesday, May 29. And after 20-plus years on the scene, it's sure to kick ass.
Face to Face. With Teenage Bottlerocket. 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 29, at Revolution Live, 100 SW Third Ave., Fort Lauderdale. Tickets cost $17.50 in advance, $20 the day of the show. Call 954-449-1025, or visit jointherevolution.net.
