There is a slice of the punk-rock world that worships pre-internet provocateur GG Allin, whose life goal seemed to revolve around completely obliterating the notion of normalcy at all costs. Allin — who famously went on a bender right here in Tampa Bay after performing at the long-demolished Harbor Club in Sulphur Springs — died of a heroin overdose in 1993, but his band, Murder Junkies, carried on.

Allin’s older brother Merle brings the band to Tampa for a show that Allin, predictably, wouldn’t give a fuck about anyway.

Murder Junkies w/Mosquito Teeth/Pig Pen/The Damnsels/Vomit Sawdust. Thurs., June 20. 8 p.m. $8-$10. Brass Mug Tampa. INFO.
