Our dedicated partner-in-crime Tesco Vee is launching another chaotic East Coast tour with his rambunctious hardcore unit the Meatmen. Riding along in the van will be copies of recent buttbuster Meatmen album Savage Sagas, and boxes stuffed full of TOUCH AND GO: The Complete Hardcore Punk Zine ’79–’83.
Here’s the travel itinerary. Make sure to catch the most inappropriate Detroit rock ‘n roll punk show of the Spring, and capture the magic of the Touch and Go book; a complete record of the mag that introduced the world to Midwestern hardcore and launched the Touch and Go record label.
