Redd Kross live at Ameoba Records 2012

This is great footage. Redd Kross is clearly enjoying themselves and so is the audience. Ameoba says their new release, Researching the Blues, is excellent.


Redd Kross is an American rock band from Hawthorne, California, who had their roots in 1978 in a band called The Tourists, which was begun by brothers Jeff and Steve McDonald while they were still in middle school. With the addition of friends Greg Hetson and Dave Keller on guitar and John Stielow on drums, the band’s first gig was opening for Black Flag.

Their sound can be almost pop yet still shreds. You don’t get to open for Black Flag unless punks will like you too.
