It’s Not Dead Fest: Part One!

The Adolescents & The Wierdos at The Nile!

This was a good night and show to officially celebrate having alcohol back and available at The Nile, that is of course if you happen to partake in alcoholic beverages.

Two legendary bands touring together and making a stop in the valley was too much to pass up even on a Tuesday night.

After months of trying to score a free copy with no luck I decided to suck it up and buy this for myself because I just could not wait any longer to get one. I guess you would call this a coffee table book but it is much more because you not only have the 100+ page book but you also get a double LP, gotta love vinyl, a CD just in case you are a tool and don’t have a record player and a DVD documentary of the book.
