Friday, March 2nd 8pm- Main Stage:
The Blasters
Angel City Outcasts
Mad Marge and the Stone Cutters

Angel City Outcasts, recently returning form their European tour, team up with The Blasters and Mad Marge and the Stone Cutters in a show that's definitely NOT to be missed. We can't think of a better way begin the weekend by rocking out to these awesome bands.

Saturday, March 3rd 7pm- Front Room:
The Loved Ones "Keep Your Heart Tour"
With special guests Dead to Me

It's the second show in the west coast leg of the Keep Your Heart Tour and quite possibly the only time these guys will play here until 2008! They're currently touring with San Francisco’s Dead To Me (founded by a few of the guys from One Man Army) and Los Angeles's Radio Midnight.

It's not just about music...
If Punk Rock and nightclubs aren't your thing, then roll on over to Little Tokyo on Saturday to catch some good old fashioned violence on wheels with LA's favorite cutthroat cuties; The Derby Dolls. This week it's The Sirens vs. The Tough Cookies.

So there you have it kids -- rockin' and rollin', skatin' and fightin', punk rock goodness for your weekend debauchery.

Keep in mind, good things don't last very long, and most of these events WILL sell out; or at least gather horrendously long lines, so run and buy your tickets... NOW!!
