Ceremony west coast tour dates & $5 Gilman Street show

By Robby on Monday, May 13th, 2013

Never slowing down, Ceremony are poised to play a number of West Coast dates in May and June. Don’t miss them.

The dates include a special show at 924 Gilman St, of which the band writes on their website:

So it’s been over a year since we last played our home, 924 Gilman Street, which is (we’re told) the longest our band has ever gone since we began. We seek to rectify this with a very unique and experimental idea: A Five Dollar Punk Show. We’ll be joined on the bill by four kindred spirits; NO STATIK, SECRET PEOPLE,FACE THE RAIL and CAGED ANIMAL and we hope you will join us too. Friday May 17th at 7:30pm. All ages, naturally. No advance tickets or any of that bullshit, just show up. Let’s hang out.

Ceremony in Mexico City Jan 12

By Nils on Monday, November 19th, 2012

Nostalgic for the old-school intensity of bands like Herejía, Histeria, Solución Mortal, Masacre 68, Atoxxxico, and Xenofobia? Then get with 2013 and grab a flight to Mexico City for Ceremony’s Mexican debut on January 12!

The show is at the historic cantina-slash-bullfighting museum (bueno, there’s bullfighting posters on the walls) La Faena, where apprentice bullfighters would hang out in the 50s, and now Ceremony, bullshit-fighters of Rohnert Park, will bring their brutal live show. The “faena,” or “task,” is the matador’s balletic final series of passes, one-on-one with the bull, preparing it for the kill, displaying his art, superiority, and courage in the process (metaphors with Ceremony abound).

With Monterrey’s Locus De Control, Tampico’s Depths, and local DF bands Sankinpankin, Nazareno El Violento, and the Sunny Day Real Estate-influenced En Círculos. For ticket info and more CLICK HERE.
