Southern California’s beloved punk pioneers T.S.O.L. will finally be touring in Australia this August, marking the first time since it’s been on Aussie soil in its expansive 40-year career. Formed in 1978 by four pasty-faced youths with a passion for the emerging hardcore scene, T.S.O.L. burst into the local club scene with an image that included white face paint and dark, energetic anthems about alienation and troubled youth.
While many bands become passe after a few years, others stand the test of time and continue to write great songs and stay relevant. That is the epitome of T.S.O.L. – still crazy, still witty and still angry after all these years. Be sure to check the band out at Vinnies Dive on August 10!
