Social D looks amazing, but disappoints at the Beaumont last night

Social Distortion

The Beaumont

May 3, 2011

I’d like to say Social Distortion hasn’t lost a step — like being the operative word. While the punk institution’s rock and roll is still powerful, and Mike Ness can still hit the notes, all the hits (“Mommy’s Little Monster,” most notably) seemed slowed down a step or two. Even “Sick Boy,” a slow stomper at its speediest, seemed to plod. A reggae coda did not help.
