    A Fat Wreck

    Fat Wreck Chords released some of the most exciting punk tracks of the 1990’s. See how the label came to be, flew high, and now struggles as a relic of punk rock and roll history.

  • Bad Religion

    Bad Religion

    Bad Religion celebrate their 30-year career the only way they know how: by releasing a killer new album and touring the country playing songs off of all 15 of their punk rock defining releases! Jen Cray was at the party without her hot pink wig.

    Against Me!

    The Orlando date of the Against Me! tour was scheduled in competition with the annual Anti Pop Fest, but the band’s loyal followers could not be deterred. Jen Cray skipped out on the multitude of alternate shows happening downtown to spend another evening with these Gainesville boys.
