Youth of Today TicketsOne of the leaders of the second wave of straight-edge in the mid-80s, New York-based Youth of Today was originally formed by Ray Cappo on vocals and John Porcelly on guitar, both formerly of Violent Children. Adding Graham Philips on bass and Darren Peace on drums to their lineup, the band recorded and released their debut EP Can't Close My Eyes. Constant changes to the band lineup plagued them until they kept five members long enough to record a full-length album in 1986 called Break Down the Walls and went on a subsequent tour. They recorded We're Not in This Alone in 1988 and a farewell self-titled EP in 1990 to mark their exit. They reunited in 2004 and have come back together on tour to the delight of punk fans everywhere. Don't miss the Youth of Today tour as you can catch the band at venues like the Saint Vitus in Brooklyn, New York. Get your Youth of Todaytickets at StubHub.
Straight Edge PunkAmerican hardcore punk band Youth of Today returns for a tour to the delight of punk fans everywhere, particularly those who embrace subcultures of the straight edge and vegetarian lifestyles. The straight edge subculture adheres to avoidance of alcohol, tobacco and recreational drugs, which was a reaction to the excesses of the original punk culture of earlier years. The news of the band coming back together and the Youth of Today schedule of performances brings great energy and excitement to fans of alternative rock and punk.
