Prior to his Tuesday night concert at the Beachland, Black Flag guitarist-songwriter and DIY pioneer Greg Ginn will make an in-store appearance 7 p.m. at Blue Arrow (1600 Waterloo Rd.), the righteous, vinyl-centric Collinwood record store that's right by the Beachland.
Local blogs Addicted To Vinyl and Broken Headphones are presenting the event.
Here's a disclaimer from the shop, though: "Before you all start grabbing your entire SST catalog for autographs and making mental notes of all the questions you want to ask him. I asked Greg if he would be interested in doing an interview about his punk history and asked to talk about influences from other punk acts out there that got him to where he is today. He politely informed me that he does not care to talk about the past but prefers to focus on the present time and future ... Greg is more concerned about his current projects and I completely understand why he prefers not to talk about an era he is no longer involved in."
Well, we'll always have "Loose Nut". —D.X. Ferris
