Dave Wedge of the Boston Herald reviewed DANZIG's headlining performance at the Roxy in Boston. An excerpt from his review follows:Underground pioneers Glenn Danzig and Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein set aside decades of differences and got back to basics Monday night (Feb. 28) with a blistering, half-hour set of MISFITS classics that harked back to the Hub's punk heyday.
The two former bandmates had played together just twice in 20 years before their onstage reunion at the Roxy — the first of three East Coast performances — which lived up to the hype.
Pale-faced and dressed in his trademark black T-shirt and pants, Danzig set the stage with a dark, muscular set of material culled from his eight solo records. Snarling and letting loose with his signature deep howl, the Revere native sounded as strong as ever fronting a power-packed band that included PRONG guitarist Tommy Victor and TYPE O NEGATIVE drummer Johnny Kelly.
The somber mood in the packed, 1,500-capacity venue was shattered when a shirtless Doyle hit the stage and the band ripped into the first of several MISFITS punk anthems. Danzig shouted his horror flick-inspired lyrics while Doyle riffed like it was 1983 on "Mommy Can I Go Out and Kill Tonight" and "Die, Die My Darling". Though not a full MISFITS reunion, it was enough to satiate the mixed-age crowd's old school thirst. Read the rest of the review at this location.
