Hardcore stalwarts Madball have had an interesting year. Upon the release of their eighth album, Empire, they announced that their new drummer was 20-year-old Jay Weinberg, son of E Street Band/Conan skinsman Max. A few months later, they announced that he was out of the band, claiming they fired him because he “has a lot to learn about paying dues, and about life in general,” and Weinberg said he quit because he does not “subscribe to their choice of habits and lifestyle.” In any case, don’t expect a “Born to Run” cover tonight. With Bitter End, Lionheart, and Incendiary.
