Black Flag, Lucero, Riverboat Gamblers to Headline Elm Street Tattoo Festival

Our boys over on Elm Street, Oliver Peck and the Reverend Horton Heat, have really outdone themselves this time. Fresh off the success of last year's greatly expanded festival, the guys have somehow arranged for Black Flag to visit Deep Ellum.

Starting on June 11 at Three Links, the festival has been extended through five whole days to June 15, at which point the Reverend himself will play a special closing solo set. Shows will take place at Three Links, Prophet Bar, Wit's End and Trees, and the full lineup will be announced on March 18.

Tickets are $120 in advance for VIP, $140 at the door, and VIPs can expect special VIP rooms and guaranteed admission to all shows. Weekend passes will be $50 in advance, $60 at the door, and there will be single-day passes too, at $25 advance and $30 door.

Booker Scott Beggs says there might even be single-show tickets available too, depending on how well sales go. Weekend passes go on sale TOMORROW, Friday, March 7.

The legendary tattooing marathon will, of course, commence on Friday, June 13, and carry on the whole way through to the festival's end on June 15.

So, to recap - BLACK FLAG. LUCERO. RIVERBOAT GAMBLERS. MXPX. BRUTAL JUICE. TATTOOS. FIVE DAYS. DEEP ELLUM. Get your tickets here, starting tomorrow.
