NOFX Announce Soundwave 2016 Sideshows
NOFX, the reigning kings of punk rock on next year’s Soundwave Festival line-up, have today announced that in addition to a show in Auckland, they’ll be extending their stay in Oz to include some sideshows in Canberra and Hobart. Yes, an international band has included Tasmania in their tour schedule!
The four-piece have been kickin’ about the LA hardcore punk scene since the early ’80s, back when tours with Bad Religion, Suicidal Tendencies, Germs and Descendents were par for the course. If that DIY legacy weren’t already enough, the band’s own Fat Mike is the man responsible for Fat Wreck Chords and all of the glorious compilation albums that came along with it.
The last time the guys were in Sydney, a mohawked Fat Mike kicked a stage invader in the face, and just a few months ago he offered a hipster fan $100 to leave the band’s show. Believe us when we say you’re in for a wild night of debauchery, mayhem, and maybe even some music.
Tickets on sale Friday November 20th @ 9am.
