Punk Rock, Leather Bars And Sanford Allen

Elena Souris

Sanford Allen details the life of a working punk band on the Worth Repeating stage. Rather than the sex, drugs and rock & roll, it is grinding from show to show, driving 20 hours a day just for the chance to come alive on stage. In this look back at a single day from one tour, his band Boxcar Satan battles fog, a "check-engine" light, and the clock to make it to a gig that would turn out to be truly legendary.


The following track was recorded at the April 5th Worth Repeating with the theme "Legendary." Worth Repeating is Texas Public Radio's live storytelling event series.
