Social Distortion has been a favorite of mine since I was a kid, thanks to my older brother. On October 12th 2012, they played at The Vic Theater in Chicago. This is hands down one of the best shows I have ever attended. Mike Ness and band put on one hell of a show. Always keeping to their roots of blend of punk, blues, country, and rockabilly, their set was an amazing mix of their classics, with old favorites like Ball and Chain and Sick Boys, closing with Johnny Cash’s Ring of Fire. Ness has an amazing stage presence and sounded better than ever. Social Distortion blew the roof off the Vic Theater. I plan on attending all of their future shows in Chicago.
