Bad Brains and American Hardcore

Ok I'm not much of a punk fan - I own some of the essentials, but it's not a genre that does much for me other then The Ramones. Despite that there are two things going on that seem pretty cool in the world of punk.

First up seminal punk/reggae/hardcore band the Bad Brains are reuniting to help bid farewell to CBGB's on October 9th and 10th. Tickets go on-sale Sunday at noon here. They also will be releasing a live album aptly titled - Live CBGB 1982 - which hits stores on October 31st.

Second is the movie American Hardcore which if you don't know about it is a documentary the second wave of punk - 1980 - 1986. The movie includes interviews and performance footage from the likes of Black Flag, Minor Threat, the Dead Kennedys and the aforementioned Bad Brains.

Here's the trailer....

Looks great, really looking forward to seeing it.
