Buzzcocks @ Baltimore Soundstage
w/The Residuels, Expert Alterations
April 18, 2015
Touring in support of their latest release, The Way (Pledge Music, 2014) – their ninth album over the course of a celebrated 40-year career (1976-81, 1989-present) and the first featuring new material since 2006’s Flat-Pack Philosophy – Buzzcocks stopped in Baltimore on April 18 for their first show here in four years (though they did visit Washington, D.C.’s Black Cat just last September). This was a real treat because Baltimore was one of only three East Coast stops for the fab foursome, who played New York’s Irving Plaza on April 16 and Asbury Park, NJ’s Stone Pony on April 17, before closing out their tour at the Baltimore Soundstage. (I suspect Buzzcocks fanboy Dave Cawley is responsible for Charm City’s inclusion on this brief tour, thanks to his overtures at the Black Cat club to Buzzcocks drummer Danny Farrant to “please come back to Baltimore.”)
The collectible promotional poster for this concert was created by Baltimore illustrator Alex Fine (alexfine.com).
Watch Buzzcocks play “Ever Fallen in Love” at Baltimore Soundstage.
