Sam McBride

Genres: Entertainment

Sam McBride: 
is well-traveled in many facets of punk rock. He started making music in the early '80s as a teenager, producing songs like "Fun With Acid" and "Suck and F*ck" and "Everybody Makes Me Puke." Through the years, he gained notable fans such as Nirvana and Mudhoney. But around the time these two bands rose to fame, Sam and his band Fang hit a tragic speedbump.
McBride  was imprisoned for six years.
McBride was released in 1995 and changed his name to Sammytown. Fang reformed shortly after and has remained active today. Sammytown is currently a tattoo studio owner and partner in Ryan Almighty's Museum Of The Macabre/Cabinet Of Curiosities as well as being involved in the drug and alcohol counseling field. A moment with Sam will undoubtedly produce a punk history lesson, as well as inspiring insight into the life of the institutionalized and the addicted, coming from a man that learned first-hand, and came out on the other side, ready to help himself, and eventually others. 




Sam McBride will be at the following events

Dark side: Sideshow, Oddities, and Music. 4/19 11:00 AM
