Nothing can match the thrill of seeing a concert in person, not even watching it on high-definition Blu-ray or listening to it on a high-definition parrot. Get out of your cage with today's GrouponLive deal: for $10, you get one general-admission ticket to see punk legends Glen Matlock and Hugh Cornwell at Reggies Rock Club on Thursday, March 1, at 8:30 p.m. (up to a $20.15 value, including all fees).
Punk aficionados rejoice as Glen Matlock and Hugh Cornwell team up to bring the sound of '76 stateside once more. From his definitive role as the Sex Pistols' original bassist through collaborations with Iggy Pop and The Damned, Matlock has accumulated more punk cred in his three-decade career than a safety-pin-bound copy of Steal This Book. Cornwell burst onto the U.K. scene as the frontman for controversial proto-punks The Stranglers, who balanced Doors-style melodic aplomb with pitch-black humor and substantial chart success, appearing before U.S. audiences as openers for The Ramones and Patti Smith. Blondie drummer Clem Burke completes the all-star trio as Matlock and Cornwell race through a catalog of hits.
Openers and frequent TV-soundtrack providers The Handcuffs piece together an eclectic sound from elements of glam and pop that may cause involuntary glitter breakouts. Reggies's sloped floor and balcony keep sight lines open amid rugged brick walls and graffiti murals.
