SLCene Suggests: Suicidal Tendencies at The Depot

by on December 8, 2014


SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, THE DEPOT, Tuesday, Dec. 9, 8:30 p.m., $24

One of my punk rock rights of passage as a little kid was my sister passing down a copy of the Repo Man soundtrack. That cult classic of a film featured Emilio Estevez as an L.A. punk, and his soundtrack became mine, introducing my ears to the likes of Black Flag, Circle Jerks and Iggy Pop for the first time. Also on there–skate punks Suicidal Tendencies and their now-classic “Institutionalized.” The aggression of the music and easy to relate to narrative struck a chord, as did later works like “How Will I Laugh Tomorrow” and “You Can’t Bring Me Down.” Still going strong more than 30 years on, Suicidal headlines at the Depot Tuesday, joined by Trash Talk.
