By now, I’m sure everyone here is quite familiar with Fat Wreck Chords and the ever-so-colorful Fat Mike. Some of us may even be familiar with how it began and the hundred plus bands that have touted the Fat Wreck seal of approval on one or all of their releases. The alumni list is pretty hefty, particularly if you include subsidiary labels Honest Don’s and Pink & Black, which unfortunately, were barely mentioned in this documentary. I have more complaints being a terminal curmudgeon, but we’ll get to those later.
Back on October 2nd we at AZ KAOS not only got to cover the show but we also had a chance to arrange a Meet and Greet with the great guys in Face To Face. Trever pitched the idea to us and we agreed right away. Having our winners get the opportunity was awesome and I am sure everyone had a great time. A big thanks to F2F for hooking us up and thanks to Luckyman and the Marquee for the tickets we were able to give away.
After a great day one of festival and club shows we were ready for day two to get rollin! The Objex started the day off with Felony Melony and her underwear getting the gathering crowd ready for the show, great live band.
Lost In Society were up next to keep things moving with their brand of alt/punk followed by another great band La Plebe from San Francisco, this band has a great following and got the first real pit of the day going.

Rise Records (2013)
The latest and 8th studio release from Face To Face is out now! On first listen I instantly said this is a great album for a road trip so it will be going along with me to Vegas later this month. It has that sound and pace that keeps moving through every song. 123 Drop and Welcome Back to Nothing are songs I really like and are a good way to start off an album.
Thanks to KUKQ we at AZ KAOS got to wonder around, drink some beer, shoot some bands and have a good time. There was a nice turnout for the all day event with a variety of bands, locals and national acts.
