Would great too see some old school bands like Christ On Parade, Sin 34, or any from the “Not So Quiet On The Western Front” comp?
What about groups like Born/Dead, Abrupt, Deadfall?

Too bad HYSTERICS aren’t a band anymore and could play this…

Born/dead ,Abrupt, an Christs on Parade would be amazing! I was also thinking why no originator’s of these genre’s playing/anyone from Quiet on Western lp(or even b4 that, some those early bay/la bands still playing ya no?)? Some of the bands are great on this but how many times have we’ve seen these bands already. Just shows Maximum Rock N Roll is still a elitist mag. What they say is right an no one else can be. I remember there war w/other mag’s-bands back in the day,acting like what they knew was all that’s good. Plus the NW acts playing tend to play here a lot anyways, and there’s like 4 other bands i’D want to see. The rest seem’s like filler. Maximum disappointed, I was like this will be a sick fest. Nope.

Members of Christ On Parade and Born/Dead both live in Europe now,so it’s complicated for either too play locally. Not sure what’s up with Abrupt but they haven’t played in awhile. Deadfall also hash;t played in a long while and one of the members is in the process of moving from the bay.

In regards to criticism. It’s surprisingly really hard to book a fest in the bay. You are at the mercy of who is able, available and willing to play, and often that does mean bands that have played before…because they’re ones willing, available and able to play.Best part of punk is you can always book your OWN Fest, and have whoever you want play! GO for it! THe Bay is really lucky to have two great fest this winter and spring!!

Alert! Alert! Be warned! “Mysterious Skin” is !NOT! an oi! band! I repeat, NOT an oi! band. There is no oi! appearing at the fest. Just a heads up.
