Incoming: The Dickies Are Coming to Town

The Southern California punk legends are slated to play Yuyintang in March

 

Formed in San Fernando Valley in 1977, The Dickies . The pop-punk pioneers first gained fame with the release of their 1978 studio album, The Incredible Shrinking Dickies. The release spawned the hit Black Sabbath cover “Paranoid” which hit number 45 on the UK charts. Another song, “Banana Splits” went even further to number 7 in the UK. Recently the song was featured in the 2010 film Kick-Ass

 

Heavily influenced by The Ramones, the band became known over the years for its subversively sophomoric stage presence (see below). Many of the band’s songs pay ode to their Southern California roots with names like, “I’m a Chollo.” Since the early days, the band has kept busy producing seven studio albums and scoring for film soundtracks like 1988 horror film, Killer Klowns from Outer Space. True to the genre, the band has experienced its fair share of personnel shake-ups, but that hasn't slowed them down much. Frontman Leonard Graves Philips will be on stage. Hopefully he'll perform the puppet show you see here...

 

Punk band The Dickies are coming to Shanghai.

 

Support for the evening will include experimental punk band Roundeye. Tickets aren’t available just yet, so check back soon for details on how to get your hands on them.
