Package tours are usually about reviving long-dead bands for a quick buck. However, the So-Cal Punk Invasion Tour breaks that tradition: Each band on the bill is still active and fully functional. Sure, the lineups may not be original, but for those who missed the first wave of West Coast punk, this tour is a great introduction. Lee Ving returns to St. Louis to headline with his pioneering punk band, Fear. (Judging by the energetic reception to a Ving solo show at Deluxe in April, the Gateway City has been hurtin' for some hardcore.) Punk palates will be further sated by the surf stylings of Agent Orange and by D.I. (a band featuring ex-Adolescents and Social Distortion drummer Casey Royer). Total Chaos and Bloodhook round out the bill.
