Pennywise: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Feb 27 2013

The exit of original Pennywise vocalist Jim Lindberg in 2009 devastated many a skate-punk fan. But it was the ensuing public feud between Lindberg and guitarist Fletcher Dragge that made it clear that future reconciliation would be impossible. Or so we thought. Ex-Ignite frontman Zoli Téglás did a fine job filling Lindberg's shoes the last few years, but in January anti-establishment punkers everywhere were stunned and elated to see Lindberg rejoin Pennywise for the band's 25th anniversary. This week sees Pennywise's first S.F. show since reuniting. The fact that fellow Orange County old-schoolers Death by Stereo and local pop-punk legends Lagwagon are also on the bill makes it even more of a must-see. Expect nostalgia — and circle pits.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.
