Two Nights of Fear in Long Beach: Local punk vets Fear will be playing their classic The Record album in its entirety, for two nights in a row in Long Beach.  Not to be missed.

It’s been nine years since Fear rerecorded their classic debut The Record album is The Fear Record. And 22 years since their last album of brand new material — 2000’s American Beer. Yet Lee Ving and crew have consistently gotten out there and performed live. Because we all love “I Love Livin’ in the City” and “I Don’t Care About You.”

Back in March 2018, when we spoke to Ving prior to Fear’s appearance at the MusINK festival, he told us: “I always have an eye and ear to the ground for the music here in our hometown, and I think that it’s made measurable progress since the old days when it was not welcome everywhere, and shows of that nature were harder to place,” Ving says. “But it’s come full circle, and that music in general is part of the way that punk rock is much more accepted than it used to be. It was an item of its own, and I think it’s absolutely more mainstream now, and popular among lots and lots of people. It’s good for everybody.”

Two Nights of Fear in Long Beach: The event takes place at 8 p.m. on Friday, May 27 and Saturday, May 28 at Alex’s Bar.
