He'll be out of work for at least 3 months, and we want to show our support for him as he recovers. Come join us to send him off right with Gut Radio, Screech of Death, and Mell Hell & the Texas Mod Crushers.  There will be a silent auction with rare Hates memorabilia and a raffle of some kickass items donated by some of our punk community's best.


This will be the last time The Hates play in a while, so come start a pit and oi! with us all night!
