May 31, 2022 — The Pagan’s Motorcycle Club’s “Blue Wave” has hit the dam in Fall River, Massachusetts. Following the club engaging in a recent brawl in a local tavern with members of the Hells Angels, the city condemned the Pagan’s Fall River chapter’s clubhouse, declaring it off-limits. Fall River is a blue-collar factory town located in between Boston and Providence.
Starting almost five years ago, the Pagan’s launched an expansion plan dubbed the Blue Wave as a means of spreading the club’s presence and brand across the country. Traditionally, the Pagan’s powerbase has been regional and limited to Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, New Jersey and New York. </p>
The Blue Wave imitative has placed the Pagan’s at odds with the Hells Angels and the Outlaws Motorcycle Club, the crown jewel of the nation’s Midwest biker scene. The Outlaws and Pagan’s engaged in a pair of deadly shootings in Oklahoma and Tennessee, respectively, this year and violence surrounding the Pagan’s expansion effort appears to be ramping up coast-to-coast.
In the past two years, the Pagan’s planted their first flag on the West Coast, opening up a chapter in the Pacific Northwest. Since their inception in Oakland, California in the 1960s, the Hells Angels have always controlled biker gang affairs west of the Mississippi.
