Social Distortion is an American punk rock band formed in 1978 in Fullerton, California. The band currently consists of Mike Ness (lead vocals, lead guitar), Jonny Wickersham (rhythm guitar, backing vocals), Brent Harding (bass, backing vocals), David Hidalgo, Jr. (drums), and David Kalish (keyboards).

Social Distortion went on a temporary hiatus in the mid-1980s, due to frontman Ness’ drug addiction and troubles with the law which resulted in extended stints in various rehabilitation centers that lasted for two years. Since its inception, the band lineup has been a virtual revolving-door of talent with many members coming and going – Ness has been the only constant member. After 39 years of performing, Social Distortion continues to tour and record music.

To date, Social Distortion has released seven full-length studio albums, two compilations, one live album, and two DVDs. They released two albums — Mommy’s Little Monster (1983) and Prison Bound (1988) — before signing a three-album contract with Epic Records in 1989. Social Distortion rose to fame with their 1990 self-titled third album, which produced their well-known hit singles “Ball and Chain”, “Story of My Life”, and the cover of Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire”, and was certified gold by RIAA. Many of their later albums, including their second gold record Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell (1992), were also well received. They are considered one of the best-selling punk rock bands, with more than three million albums sold worldwide. Social Distortion is currently working on a new album, likely to be released in 2018.

The New Pornographers VIDEO

Wikipedia description

The band’s first four albums each placed in the top 40 on The Village Voice’s Pazz & Jop year-end poll of hundreds of music reviewers. From 2000 to 2006, either a New Pornographers’ album or a solo album from one of the band’s members ranked in the top 40 on the list each year. In 2007, Blender magazine ranked The New Pornographers’ first album, Mass Romantic, the 24th best indie album of all time. It is the second-highest Canadian album on the list, behind Arcade Fire’s Funeral (which came in sixth). In 2009, Rolling Stone magazine ranked the band’s second studio album, Electric Version, No. 79 in the “100 Best Albums of the Decade”.

The name of the band was chosen by Carl Newman, who has said that he came up with it after watching a Japanese film called The Pornographers. Many writers have assumed that the name was a reference to Jimmy Swaggart’s claim that rock and roll was “the new pornography.” The band has released seven albums to date: Mass Romantic (2000), Electric Version (2003), Twin Cinema (2005), Challengers (2007), Together (2010), Brill Bruisers (2014), and Whiteout Conditions (2017). A live album recorded on their 2006 tour is available only at concerts and on the band’s website. In 2005, the band was the subject of Reginald Harkema’s documentary film Better Off in Bed.

All of the band’s original members were prominent within the Vancouver music scene prior to forming The New Pornographers. Kathryn Calder, who is also Newman’s niece, joined the band in 2005 largely as a live replacement for Case, whose solo career often left her unavailable to perform with the band. […]

“From its humble beginnings as the one day Azalea Festival in 1982, Oak Ridge’s Secret City Festival is evolving into one of the premier events in East Tennessee and has been expanded to encompass three weekends, June 2-17. A highlight of the event will be the weekend of June 9-10, with arts & crafts vendors, children’s programming, and concerts by locally revered and nationally acclaimed musicians. While previous festivals have featured classic rock, this year the festival looks firmly toward the future with artists who are poised to continue making an impact on their respective genres for years to come, including festival headliners The Black Lillies on June 9 and Dr. Dog on June 10.
