Beachland Tavern, Cleveland, OH
Cleveland never forgot about sweaty rock clad in denim and cheap t-shirts. Many have claimed that this town’s Rust Belt chic of the late 70s was to introduce kids to real, honest, and righteous filth like The Dead Boys and The Pagans. Which is why we think you’ll just love The Men. This NYC band doesn't have the belligerence of those two outfits, but they sure do kick up a fine racket. So if you like punk, punk: we mean not the rat-a-tat riffing of Epitaph-born bands, but the roar and squeal of Dead Boys, Pagans, The Saints, and Radio Birdman, you won’t go wrong with The Men. If that’s a little too aggro for ya, they've even got some tunes that sound like Crazy Horse. Gun Outfit -- not hallowed group Gun Club -- opens, along with Cleveland rock n’ roll action figures Filmstrip.
