The Avengers Tour The Northeast and Canada!




On Wednesday July 28, 2010 San Francisco's notorious, Class-of-77 female-led punk rock band THE AVENGERS will embark on their first East Coast tour in over three years. The band were handpicked by Big Takeover Magazine editor and publisher, Jack Rabid to headline his magazine’s Thirtieth Anniversary Festival at the Bell House in Brooklyn, NY. Three of these dates mark the band's first return to Canada since their 1979 break up a...nd are the band’s first-ever shows in Ontario and Quebec. The band – featuring the iconic Penelope Houston on vocals and Greg Ingraham on guitar – have toured the world since their 2002 reformation and are showing no signs of slowing down. The line-up – augmented by long-serving members, Joel Reader (Mr. T Experience/Pansy Division) on bass and Luis Illades (Pansy Division) on drums – remains a complete and total inspirational powerhouse on stage - just as they were three decades ago.
