The 100 Club is a legendary venue for rock shows, hosting live music since the 1940s. It is perhaps most notorious for hosting punk rock shows in the early ’70s and throughout the ’80s. The Rolling Stones even played a secret show there in 1982.
Despite reports, Overkill’s appearance at the Represent festival is not affiliated with the London Olympics in any manner. Overkill will also play Canada’s Heavy MTL and Heavy T.O. festivals in August and kick off a European tour in October in support of their latest disc ‘The Electric Age.’ See their full list of dates here.
