THE SHOW

This is the fifteenth in a series of fundraising concerts organized to pay for the underfunded music education program at Castelar Elementary School. Established in 1882 and sitting right in the middle of Chinatown, the inner-city public school serves mostly immigrant kids who don't get much exposure to performing arts or creative outlets. Chinatown has an unbeatable musical past (mostly punk) and rad art scene in the present (post punk). Neither subculture crosses paths often with the residents in Chinatown but we're trying to create a bridge for them to help out the local kids.

This lineup will mix up friends from Portland, Orange County, and the Bay Area with pals and originators of Los Angeles punk.

• Super-secret surprise guests - We had one before. If you liked them, you shouldn't be disappointed.
Hurry Up - Garage punk and roll from Portland with Maggie from The Bangs and Westin and Kathy from The Thermals.
* The Unhushables - First show by a brand-new band with Frank from M.I.A. and Big DRILL Car and Kathy and Westin from The Thermals.
Cringeworthy - Cringer and J Church tribute from the Bay Area featuring members of Cringer, Kamala & The Karnivores, The Love Songs, RAD, and Sick Burn.
• In-between jams courtesy of DJ Lisa Fancher of Dangerhouse and Frontier Records.

That's a lot of great music for 12 lousy bucks (and maybe some raffle tickets).
