One of DC’s most diverse sounding and revered punk bands of the 80′s, Government Issue, is getting their final line-up back together again to play a benefit show at the Black Cat on December 11th. The benefit is to raise funds for DJ Stereofaith, a mainstay on the DC alternative-dance night scene with his parties “Sorted” and “Feedback”, who had emergency brain surgery earlier this summer.
Government Issue are no strangers to benefit reunions. In 2007, GI played a fantastic show to help their long-time lead singer John Stabb pay his medical bills after a viscious mugging. For this show the line-up will feature John Stabb, Tom Lyle, J. Robbins, Pete Moffett. Tickets are onsale now through the Black Cat’s website.
