May 6 [16:00 EST] -- The Caffeine Nation tour gets underway Tuesday night, with punk forefathers the Descendents leading the way.
Milo Aukerman, Karl Alvarez, Stephen Egerton, and Bill Stevenson are taking their reformed incarnation of the Descendents on the road with Guttermouth, Less Than Jake, and Handsome in tow.
Descendents began carving out a Bay Area punk sound in 1978, and after a hiatus (which spawned the Descendents off-shoot All), the group reformed and recorded 1996's "Everything Sucks.
