San Francisco, California

For the first time in 26 years, Greg Ginn will hit the stage with Black Flag for an all-ages show in Vancouver.
Founded in 1976 in Hermosa Beach, California by Ginn, Black Flag are pioneers of the West Coast's punk rock scene. Widely regarded as one of America's most important underground acts, their songs "Black Coffee", "Nervous Breakdown", "Rise Above", "Six Pack", and "TV Party" are as iconic as the band's four bars logo. Since breaking up in 1986, the band has played only a handful of reunion shows. Earlier this year, Ginn and Ron Reyes, the band's vocalist during the Jealous Again- and Decline Of The Western Civilization-era, announced they would be reforming. Black Flag is currently putting the finishing touches on a new album, their first since 1985.
