Social Distortion filled the house late last week, at Sacramento's Ace of Spades. For a full photo gallery, click on the photo above, or on this link.

Fronted by original member Mike Ness, harking back to the original days of punk -- they formed in 1978 -- Social Distortion has long been a mainstay of punk in the USA, but with a clear rockabilly influence to their music making them unique.

More dates to come in the tour--several are, like the Sacramento show, sold out--catch your tickets while you can!

While the band put forward their best, I can't say that much the audience did the same; it was a sweltering mess of puffed-up testosterone, not with the political activism that I know and love from British punk fans, but with beer and self-righteousness, and all crowded as close as possible to the front of the venue, blocking the view of smaller and more female members of the audience (there weren't many). Sacramento, dudes, that was just rude.
