Glen Matlock & Syl Sylvain: A Pistol And A Doll

Is the term “punk rock royalty” not a bit self-contradictory? Feel free to ask original Sex Pistols bassist Glen Matlock, who will be joined by former-and-current New York Dolls guitarist Syl Sylvain at The Brighton Bar in Long Branch on April 3. It’s an all-acoustic set that will include songs from throughout Matlock’s 30-year career—expect some Pistols, Rich Kids, recent solo-work, and the cockney quips he’s known for. $25 will net VIP seats and a three-course meal for the first 30 who claim them; general admission is $15.
