NOFX @ o2 Institute, 14 June 2018

During the walk into Digbeth this evening, it seemed The Kerryman had changed from an Irish pub to a punk bar with punters donning leather jackets and multi coloured Mohicans. The reason for this is that NOFX were in town at the O2 Institute as part of their European tour. First up at the show […]
