A Week In Punk: Last Week’s Top Stories Recapped (4/14/2013)

As shameful as it is some of you readers don’t actually check Dying Scene every hour of every day.  For you slackers we’ve put together a list of last week’s biggest stories to help you stay in the loop and maintain your punk cred.  You’re welcome.

1. Punk rock sweetheart (and total babe) Laura Jane Grace opened up to Cosmo magazine about her first year as a woman.

2. Jello Biafra might reunite with the Dead Kennedys. Oh, thank god. We’ve missed that lisp of his.

3. Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher died of a stroke this week. Being the classy bunch of citizens we are, we compiled a list of songs about how much everyone hated her.

4. Deftones bassist Chi Cheng passed away on Saturday. He had been in a semi vegetative state since 2008.

5. Save Ferris announced a reunion show at the Orange County Fair this year. However, it’s actually just Monique Powell and does not include anyone from the band’s original lineup.

6. Davey Havok discussed his new book, among other things an interview.

7. There’s a Tony Sly Tribute album in the works! You can thank Frank Turner for letting the cat out of the bag.

8. Blink-182 will play exactly ONE California show this year.

9. Sum 41 had to bow out of their tour with Billy Talent due to medical reason. Deryck Whibley’s heart still hurts from when Avril Lavigne dumped him.

10. Face to Face streamed some more new music. AGING PUNKS, REJOICE!
