Unfortunately I didn't. I was tired from having to head into work early (woke up at 4:30, was there sometime around 6) and never really thought about it once I got home.
Sounds like it got a good review, but yes the crowd was "thin"
Flag flies at Stage AE
The gateway from neo-hippies to old punks was the Fort Duquesne Bridge to Stage AE.
Just as the Magnetic Zeros were winding down, Flag was ready to fly inside the cavernous North Shore venue, where the turnout was thin. Flag consists of four former members of Black Flag -- Keith Morris, Chuck Dukowski, Bill Stevenson and Dez Cadena -- who were fed up with waiting around for a full-fledged reunion.
The two people most associated with Black Flag -- fourth singer Henry Rollins and founding guitarist Greg Ginn, off on his own Black Flag reunion -- are missing, but there is some legitimacy to this outfit fronted by original singer Morris, who went on to the Circle Jerks and Off!
The sonic assault they created was legit, too. With ages ranging from late 40s to late 50s, the guys in Flag raged through two-minute classics such as "I Don't Care," "Fix Me," "Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie" and "Wasted" with no shortage of speed, volume and fury, while the old-school punk fans crashed into each other below the stage.
The second mix was sufficiently raw and tinny as if they were back at the friendly confines of the Electric Banana. We can safely say that nostalgia trips back 30 years don't usually come with this much pent-up noise, energy and aggression.
