Mon., July 22, Black Flag
Ace of Spades, 7 p.m., $20
If you're a punk-rock aficionado looking to complete a respectable record collection, Black Flag best be on the shelf. Whether it was Black Flag with Keith Morris at the mic or with Henry Rollins and his angst-driven vocals throughout the Damaged album, Black Flag was an innovator of the West Coast punk wave throughout its early career. After calling it quits in '86, with a brief reunion stint in 2003, these pioneers of punk are back at it again with a 2013 reunion, featuring Ron Reyes on vocals, Dave Klein on bass, Gregory Moore on drums, and founding member and primary songwriter Greg Ginn on guitar. 1417 R Street, www.blackflagofficial.com.
