Legendary New York hardcore band Murphy's Law has been playing punk rock party anthems for 30 years, led by singer and lone founding member Jimmy Gestapo, who has played with a staggering who's who of backing musicians since the band's inception — literally more than 50 names. In this way, Murphy's Law can be seen as the unlikely link between bands like the Misfits, the Slackers, Thursday, the New York Dolls and about a billion more whose musicians have lent a helping hand over the years. Murphy's Law's live show is a nonstop party, with huge sing-a-longs, impromptu songs written on the spot about audience members and Jägermeister that flows like water — mostly into Gestapo's face.

Back With a Bong: This show is the band's rescheduled appearance following the cancellation of its June 25 date. No Skarhead this time though.
