Delivering a blast of buzzsaw noise perfectly suited to their times, Stiff Little Fingers developed into one of the most
renowned Irish punk bands in the '70s. Just as British punk was focused on Queen and culture, Stiff Little Fingers wrote about
the violence and injustice surrounding The Troubles, Ireland's war-torn period between the north and south. The band is working
on a brand new record, and concert tickets are
now available for this year's tour.
Stiff Little Fingers formed in 1977 as a high school band, but quickly discovered punk rock. The band decided to use it
as a means to express the anxieties and anger of those suffering through the violence in Northern Ireland. After their first
cassette came into the hands of legendary British DJ John Peel, they earned heavy radio airplay, eventually leading to a record
deal. After releasing a few albums, they split up, then reformed in 1987.
Stiff Little Fingers are heading back out on tour with a stop at New York's Blender Theater Gramercy. The venue originally opened
in 1937, and has a long history in Gotham as a cinema. Over the years, it's shown everything from art-house fare to Disney
films and dollar movies. These days, it also hosts live events.
The classic sound of punk rock will never go stale. If you want to hear the music of Stiff Little Fingers on the stage

are still available for their upcoming tour dates.
