Until the End Reunion - Propaganda, Lake Worth - March 23

Better than: Anything Have Heart ever did. 

The straightedge ethos and lifestyle, as it was defined by hardcore punk pioneers like Minor Threat's Ian MacKaye, can be a difficult one to understand for the uninitiated outsider. However, for those that identify with the movement -- regardless of how long their commitment winds up actually lasting -- it can provide a built-in support system, a positive outlet for the angst of growing up, and a bit of discipline in a world where excess and addiction have become normal and somewhat celebrated. Above all, the friendships forged around mic dives and 7-inch vinyl tend to last a lot longer than the Sharpie ink.

KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
