OFF! Announce Farewell Shows With Shellac, Fucked Up, and Surfbort


OFF! have announced farewell shows in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago this July. Support comes from Fucked Up, Surfbort, and Shellac, respectively, and each city will also host an advance screening of the band’s new feature film, Free LSD. The movie, directed by Dimitri Coats, has a new trailer today—check that out below, along with the tour dates.

Free LSD tells the story of a sex shop owner (Morris) who falls for a younger woman visiting the store, setting off a chain events that leads to his taking an experimental drug in the hope of curing his erectile dysfunction. The cast of punk royals includes Dead Kennedys’ D.H. Peligro and the Jesus Lizard’s David Yow. Screenings take place on July 17 (Chicago), July 19 (New York), and August 2 (Los Angeles).

OFF!, helmed by former Black Flag frontman Keith Morris and Burning Brides’ Dimitri Coats, announced their imminent hiatus last month. Morris plans to work on a new record with his other band, Circle Jerks, he told the Vinyl Guide podcast.
