The Adicts Storm the Chance on Saturday

Those in the Hudson Valley who enjoy harder sounds are happy to still have the Chance Theater after all these years. When it comes to heavy metal, classic hard rock, and the odd vanguard punk act, the veteran venue has those niches nailed down. Fans of the latter genre should be keyed up for this Saturday's appearance by poppy British punks the Adicts at the historic 1912 theater

Formed in 1975, the Adicts didn’t really break through until the early ’80s, when they hit their stride with their second album, 1982’s flawless Sound of Music. If you dig the melodic, hook-hung, guitar-chugging style of their better-known contemporaries the Buzzcocks, the Ramones, and the Undertones, these guys will be squarely in your wheelhouse. On stage, they’re a sight to see, with joker make-up-wearing front man Monkey mugging it up and the band decked out in bowler hats and white outfits a la the delinquent droogs in Stanley Kubrick’s Clockwork Orange.

In this documentary clip, the Adicts perform "Viva La Revolution" and "Joker in the Pack":

The Adicts will perform with Creepshow, the Jukebox Romantics, New Red Scare, and Kyle Trocolla at the Chance Theater in Poughkeepsie, New York, on September 19 at 7:30pm. Tickets are $16. For more information, call (845) 471-1966 or visit Thechancetheater.com.
