The King’s Head became known as one of, if not the, epicenters of the punk and hardcore scene. Lewis, the former bouncer at the King’s Head and founder of Lucifer and the Crackwhores (“The name alone brought people out,” he laughs), said he remembers Norfolk as welcoming. “Virginia Beach, if you didn’t know the right people, they didn’t want to know you,” Lewis said. “Norfolk was like, ‘Hey, what’s up?’ Norfolk had the music scene, all the punk and hardcore. Virginia Beach had Sublime.”
“Those older people, the those hippies and weirdos from the first days of rock n’ roll weren’t coming out to shows anymore, for the most part,” Persons said. “It was a new young audience who had never experienced that special time.” That young, new audience would set the standard throughout the '90’s and ignite the Norfolk hardcore scene.
