Whatever happened to punk rock?! By the end of the ‘80s many punk rockers moved on, improved their technique and turned to alt. rock. Since 2008, Cerebral Ballzy have been fighting to bring back the all-American punk rock spirit as the quintet recently dropped their self-titled debut album last month. The group is known for putting on energetic, in-your-face live shows creating a whirlpool of moshing madness. Check them out as they perform on Aug. 28 at Brooklyn’s Commodore Barry Park for the Afro Punk Festival, New York City’s The Living Room on Aug. 29 and Montclair’s The Meatlocker on Sept. 2.
