Vans Showcase // House of Vans // Cerebral Ballzy
Brooklyn punk rockers Cerebral Ballzy revived the essence of 80’s punk with their self-titled album released in 2011. Their forthcoming album is sure to bring even more of the thrashing and dirty sound missing from the punk genre today. Luckily for us, we got a solid dose of it on the Vans stage at SXSW Wednesday evening.

The European travels continue with the second installment of No Sleep Til’. Cerebral Ballzy are in the driver’s seat this time around for a tour of Moscow, Russia. Their visas haven’t really been sorted and perhaps a mail-order bride is on the menu. In short, all sorts of shenanigans are going down in the CB camp as they set off to play a show to 300 punk-crazed fans.

Join Cerebral Ballzy as they make a stop in Moscow’s famed Red Square, shoot some moonshine, and talk about how they all came to meet and start a band. And how else do you commemorate such a trip but with some Russian-style prison tattoos? Yeah, our thoughts exactly. 

Cerebral Ballzy headlining dates/tour with OFF!

If you need your music just as loud, fast and dirty as the streets of New York, Cerebral Ballzy are just the band you’ve been after.
