Bad Religion just never get old. Every gig is an event, every performance something to get super-excited about. That’s partly because Greg Graffin, Brett Gurewitz and the boys seem to be having a great time every time they set foot on stage. But also, the albums have been of a remarkably consistent high standard. They rarely (if ever) put out a dud, with this year’s Age of Unreason once again wowing fans and critics. Of course, Bad Religion have always been outspoken when it comes to matters of social and political unrest, so the current awful climate is food and drink to them. We need the band more than ever, and they’re delivering.

Bad Religion plays at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, July 17 at the Observatory.
