When the Misfits played the Forum a couple of years ago, the classic lineup performing in L.A. for the first time since they split decades ago, it was a great show but Danzig admitted that his voice was suffering and he wasn’t at his best. Now then, they have the chance to show SoCal what Misfits 2019 is really capable of — at the vast Banc of America Stadium, no less. And what a bill they’ve put together: agro-punks Rise Against, a reformed The Distillers, snotty Brits the Anti-Nowhere League and New York hardcore vets the Cro-Mags. That’s quality, from start to finish. But still, it’s all gonna be about those glowing pumpkins, and tunes like “Skulls” and “Die Die My Darling.” It’s still hard to believe they’re back.

Misfits play with Rise Against, The Distillers, Anti-Nowhere League and Cro-Mags at 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 29 at the Banc of America Stadium.
