Black Flag, Lucero, Riverboat Gamblers to Headline Elm Street Tattoo Festival

Categories: DFW Music News


Our boys over on Elm Street, Oliver Peck and the Reverend Horton Heat, have really outdone themselves this time. Fresh off the success of last year's greatly expanded festival, the guys have somehow arranged for Black Flag to visit Deep Ellum.

Starting on June 11 at Three Links, the festival has been extended through five whole days to June 15, at which point the Reverend himself will play a special closing solo set. Shows will take place at Three Links, Prophet Bar, Wit's End and Trees, and the full lineup will be announced on March 18.

Tickets are $120 in advance for VIP, $140 at the door, and VIPs can expect special VIP rooms and guaranteed admission to all shows. Weekend passes will be $50 in advance, $60 at the door, and there will be single-day passes too, at $25 advance and $30 door.

Booker Scott Beggs says there might even be single-show tickets available too, depending on how well sales go. Weekend passes go on sale TOMORROW, Friday, March 7.

The legendary tattooing marathon will, of course, commence on Friday, June 13, and carry on the whole way through to the festival's end on June 15.

So, to recap - BLACK FLAG. LUCERO. RIVERBOAT GAMBLERS. MXPX. BRUTAL JUICE. TATTOOS. FIVE DAYS. DEEP ELLUM. Get your tickets here, starting tomorrow.

Black Flag? Sorry Greg, no more Black Flag without Rollins. The most recent version has been a disaster. Time to retire that name. Sad when a legend becomes just another cash cow.


@darrylrs Ironic when you call a punk band a sell out for becoming a cash cow and how you say there is no black flag without Rollins. Especially when there is a video of Rollins talking about people commenting on punk bands cashing in and how he supports and punk band being paid. The majority of original punk bands didn't make any money during the late 70's and 80's. I'm guessing what I am saying is Henry Rollins thinks your a dip shit...
