The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator!

“We ain’t got no place to go so let’s go to the Punk Rawk Show!” Most of you will be chanting this exactly over the weekend but do not worry, there’s plenty of reggae to be had over the next three days as well. This edition of The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator found TONS of punk shows but also plenty of reggae including SOJA, Tarrus Riley, Third World, Wailing Souls, and many more.

Ok, ok…so MxPx will not be playing this weekend but there will be tons of other Fat Wreck Chords bands at the Punk Rawk Show in NorCal over the next three days. NOFX and friends will be winding down the Fat Wrecked For 25 Years Tour with a huge 2-day outdoor punk festival that will close down the streets of San Francsico.

The Fat Wrecked For 25 Years Tour has been making the rounds and will be concluding August 24th at The Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles before one last encore overseas in Tokyo, Japan in November. To celebrate 25 years going strong and the end of an amazing tour, the fellas are bringing all their friends to their hometown for a 2-day party in the streets outside Thee Parkside. 25 years is a very long time, especially for a company that started in Fat Mike’s kitchen, and the impact of Fat Wreck Chords can be seen and heard throughout the music industry in many other genres as well, as Duddy B from Dirty Heads can attest to himself:

“…[FAT WRECK CHORDS] really did build a scene. I think there’s a lot of nostalgia with that company and those bands for me and, I think, a lot of people growing up in southern California are really getting into the punk scene. And they’re still doing it.”
– Dustin “Duddy B” Bushnell of Dirty Heads

The 2-day punk festival actually gets started Friday night with a special limited-seat screening of Backstage Passport 2 (see trailer below) at Thee Parkside. Afterwards, fans will be treated to a Q&A session with the members of NOFX followed by a surprise performance from a unannounced band (not NOFX and not part of the tour lineup). But then the real party begins with crazy lineups scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, both headlined by the men of the hour. Unfortunately, Saturday’s lineup lost Propagandhi but picked up Sick Of It All in their place to go along with Strung Out, Joey Cape, Chris Cresswell (of The Flatliners), and of course all of our favorite oldies from Me First and the Gimme Gimmes. Sunday definitely will not disappoint either…Lagwagon, Swingin’ Utters, The Flatliners, Masked Intruder, and Bad Cop/Bad Cop will be closing out the festival on Sunday.

Check out the video tour announcement below or the Fat website for more information and full daily lineups for the weekend.
