Hold onto your hats, the men from ALL are hitting the East Coast for their first shows there in 7 years! For those of you who have been living in a cave, ALL evolved from The Descendents, a band who once claimed they couldn’t sell out a telephone booth but whose impact on rock is undeniable.
The Descendents created ALL, a concept celebrating the satisfaction that comes from one’s highest achievement, eventually naming their new band in tribute to their own personal ideology. After more than 25 years, there have been line-up changes and a complicated chronology for each member involving spouses, kids, doctorate degrees, labels and recording studios, making touring more of a challenge than in less complicated times. ALL will hit Cambridge, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Brooklyn in January 2010 with Scott Reynolds on vocals joining Bill Stevenson (drums), Karl Alvarez (bass) and Stephen Egerton (guitar).
After years of hiatus, ALL reunited at 2008’s Riot Fest in Chicago, setting the stage for additional shows in Japan and in Denver later that year. In July of this year the band headed to their homeland, Southern California for a series of shows, where they were joined by Descendents band mate Tony Lombardo at two shows. Another one-off show in Portland last month set the stage for this brand new set of shows on the opposite coast.
ALL will be joined by Off With Their Heads and Shot Baker for the following shows:
WED JAN 6 CAMBRIDGE, MA THE MIDEAST
THU JAN 7 PHILADELPHIA, PA FIRST UNITARIAN CHURCH
FRI JAN 8 BALTIMORE, MD THE OTTOBAR
SAT JAN 9 BROOKLYN, NY MUSIC HALL OF WILLIAMSBURG
