About this event

As part of their current North American tour, Lagwagon will be playing Double Plaidinum and Blaze in full on alternating nights. The band's Bridgeworks stop will see them celebrating Double Plaidinum .

One of the essential bands of the '90s SoCal punk era, Santa Barbara combo Lagwagon formed in Goleta, California in 1990 and rose to prominence alongside West Coast peers like Green Day, Rancid, and the Offspring. The first group ever to sign with Fat Wreck Chords, Lagwagon's star was eclipsed somewhat by the aforementioned bands, all of whom found subsequent mainstream success via major-label contracts; in spite of several offers, Lagwagon has remained staunchly independent both in spirit and approach — blending the relentless energy of hardcore punk with pop melodicism and plenty of humour — staying with Fat Wreck for the duration of their career. Originally called Section 8, by the time of their 1992 debut, Duh, Lagwagon was comprised of singer Joey Cape, guitarists Chris Flippin and Shawn Dewey, bassist Jessse Buglione and drummer Derrick Plourde. Trashed followed two years later, and in 1995 they released breakthrough album Hoss. Plourde left the band shortly after that and was replaced by ex-Rich Kids on LSD drummer Dave Raun. Former Posies guitarist Ken Stringfellow replaced Dewey for Lagwagon's next effort, 1997's Double Plaidinum; he soon departed as well, and another Rich Kids alum, guitarist Chris Rest, was on board for 1998's Let's Talk About Feelings. By 2000, the group had essentially become dormant, with Cape focusing on other projects like Bad Astronaut and Me First and the Gimme Gimmes. Fat Wreck filled the gap by issuing the 2000 rarities compilation Let's Talk About Leftovers. When Lagwagon resurfaced two years later, they entered the studio with renewed vigour and produced the creative and commercial highlight Blaze, the band's first album to crack the Billboard Top 200. In March 2005, tragedy struck when founding drummer Derrick Plourde took his own life. Although he hadn't been a member since the late-'90s, his spirit loomed large on Lagwagon's seventh album, Resolve, which they dedicated to their fallen friend. During the second half of the decade, frontman Cape began devoting more of his time to solo efforts and, following a 2008 EP called I Think My Older Brother Used to Listen to Lagwagon, the band entered another hiatus. In 2010, founding bassist Jesse Buglione officially departed, and when Lagwagon hit the road for a tour that summer, Joey Raposo became his replacement. After several headlining tours, the band finally reentered the studio to record Hang, their first new studio album since 2005; released in 2014, it gave the band its highest-ever chart position, peaking at number 95 on the Billboard 200. Lagwagon returned in October 2019 with their ninth long-player, Railer.
