The Descendents Confirm Concert at The ELM with Buzzcocks and Grumpster

Influential punk rock band Descendents will perform at The ELM on Sunday, September 29, 2024 with fellow punk rockers the Buzzocks and Grumpster.

Since their formation in SoCal in the late 70s, the Descendents have been a pioneering force in the punk rock scene. Known for their fast-paced, melodic style and lyrics that tackle everything from angst and love to coffee addiction, they’ve influenced countless artists. Bands who’ve cited the Descendents as influences include Blink-182, NOFX, Green Day, Rise Against, The All-American Rejects, and The Offspring to name a few. With classic albums like Milo Goes to College and Everything Sucks, the Descendents have a rich catalog of punk anthems that have stood the test of time.

Hailing from the United Kingdom, the Buzzcocks are often credited with shaping the punk rock genre. Tracks like “Ever Fallen in Love (With Someone You Shouldn’t’ve)” and “Why Can’t I Touch It” remain quintessential punk rock staples.

Opening the night is Grumpster, a rising force in the modern punk world hailing from Oakland, California. They just released their self titled album earlier this year.

About The Descendents

Since first emerging from (and defining) the Southern California pop-punk scene in 1978, the legendary Descendents have released classic after classic, from their landmark 1982 LP Milo Goes to College to 2016’s Hypercaffium Spazzinate. Now, after issuing a flurry of singles to get fans through the past few years, the band — Milo Aukerman (vocals), Bill Stevenson (drums), Stephen Egerton (guitar), and Karl Alvarez (bass) — will be touring in support of a new album. With a very cool twist.

What started with Milo Goes to College now comes full circle on the blistering 9th & Walnut (Epitaph), a “lost album” quietly recorded in 2002 by the MGTC lineup of Stevenson, Aukerman, Tony Lombardo on bass, and Frank Navetta (d. 2008) on guitar. Audiences should be geared up for shows featuring songs spanning Descendents’ incredible career, from “Suburban Home” and “Silly Girl” to “I’m the One” and “Without Love,” and including 9th & Walnut tracks like first single “Baby Doncha Know” and its incendiary follow-up, “Nightage.”
