Southern California rock ‘n’ roll icons Social Distortion will celebrate the worldwide premiere of their breathtaking new short film video for “Machine Gun Blues” by rolling out the red carpet for friends, celebrities and fans at The Music Box in Hollywood on April 21. The event will kick off with a red carpet, followed by the premiere of the “Machine Gun Blues” and then a performance by the band.
The beautiful extended short film for “Machine Gun Blues” begins in 1934 Los Angeles as Mike “Sick Boy” Ness and his “Blood and Sorrow” crew of gangsters knock off a bank only to realize the feds are hot on their trail. Shot at the famous Union Station in downtown Los Angeles and surrounding areas, the gang is chased through rolling dusty roads to their hideout for an explosive showdown with the G-men.
