Show in Review: The Black Flag Raises at HOB

Black Flag Show Review August 30th, 2019 House of Blues   “I’m gonna use your shoulder for a sec!” a stranger lady mosher yelled at me over the scrambling crowd as she fixed her boot that has been “flat-tired” in the midst of the pit. I kindly posted up to give her something to lean...
