Since the late 1970s, California has had a thriving regional punk rock movement and many bands formed here including The Avengers, Mutants, the Nuns, Flipper, and the Dead Kennedys, whose first show was in late 1978 with The Offs. California punk of this period was musically very eclectic, and the punk scene of the time included a number of bands whose sound strongly crossed over to Art/experimental Punk, new wave, synthpunk, Rockabilly and hard rock. On this tour you will learn the history behind the punk movement in California, visit popular venues and also hear about the modern scene in San Francisco.
