redd kross

Founded in Los Angeles by pre-teen brothers Jeff and Steven McDonald, Redd Kross cut their teeth during the first wave of LA punk rock. As the band (and the brothers) matured, they began expanding upon the punk sound. Redd Kross boldly broke new ground by intuitively and inventively mixing their eclectic inspirations. They understood the esoteric commonalities between the Partridge Family with the Manson Family; the Beatles with Black Sabbath; Sony and Cher with the New York Dolls. The results were daringly original, artistic and uncontrived. Don't miss your chance to see some of the punk great innovators.
