We arrived about an hour before the concert. Parking spaces can be a little narrow and $10 fee. Will call was easy and the staff was very friendly in helping us find our section and seats. Seating is a tight and leg room in some rows is tough. Dated venue and bathrooms were small. Sound and lighting was good. Stage rotates and you aren't very far from the stage, even in the upper level.

Celebrity theatre, Phx,Az,, no readmittance after break to force fans to breathe second hand smoke and be totally fleeced for drinks, $7-11 beers, WOW, after decades of memories of great shows never again , I can't support your choice of business model Celebrity, won't ever go back, and will prepare all my friends for the bad news. So for less expensive evening, really, go anywhere else.

Description

KUKQPhoenix.Com presents “6 Rounds of Punk” featuring the Misfits, the Vandals, Strung Out, Not For You, Guttermouth and the Attack. KUKQ’s local battle of the bands winner starts the show.

With their iconic Fiend Club symbol and their trademark sound incorporating ‘50s rock, sci-fi and horror, the Misfits have made an indelible mark on punk rock, fashion and pop culture. Misfits co-founder/longtime torchbearer Jerry Only celebrates 35 years since the band’s inception featuring Only on bass and vocals, former Black Flag guitarist Dez Cadena, and longtime drummer Eric “Chupacabra” Arce (formerly of Murphy’s Law). The Misfit’s first release in nearly a decade, Devil’s Rain (2011), embraced the horror and sci-fi themes that have become their trademark.

The Vandals appeared in Orange County in 1980, and quickly became notorious for their frequent out of control shows. While they were often banned from concert venues, they were signed to the young label Epitaph Records, who released their first EP, Peace Thru Vandalism, in 1982. Their goofy songs and adolescent humor clearly paved the way for more popular punk bands like the Offspring and All. With original member Joe Escalante at the reins, the band’s popularity that has granted them main-stage appearances on the Warped Tour, attracting newer, younger fans each year.

Hailing from Simi Valley, the five piece power punks known as Strung Out have been rocking out since the early 90’s with their punk/metal fusion. With years of expertise in crafting musically and thematically consistent albums, it’s easy to see why some music aficionados feel Strung Out are miles ahead of the average punk musicians. Earlier this month, drummer Jordon Burns revealed to Punknews.org that Strung Out plans to release a new album in 2013.
