Berserktown 3 Photos

Berserktown 3 hit Los Angeles last weekend and it was a fun mess. All three days seemed like one never-ending show so here are a bunch of photos from everything.

Beserktown 3 started out at the Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles



Neil Hamburger surprised the crowd with some jokes before Psychic TV



Psychic TV jammed through their Force the Hand of Chance album in its entireity



Corey Duffel and his wife Rachel kept the 45s spinning a couple doors down



Then after the show everyone headed to the after show



Stupid Life kicked things off around 2 am



Gorilla Angreb from Copenhagen reformed after a nine-year hiatus and was the special guest of the night



Criminal from Los Angeles






I thought it was pretty funny that The Men were opening up for The Kids






Rixe brought the Oi all the way from France



Gorilla Angreb got to play the main stage for their second set of the day



The US government finally granted access to these Beligian punk legends. The Kids killed it



Hank Wood and the Hammerheads wrapped things up at the Teragram for the night. They're one of the best live bands around right now



Everyone rushed over to E 7th to catch a surprise set from Ana Curra



Mommy from NYC rules



Warthog made it on stage at 5 am



A few hours later Cheena picked things back up at the main stage. Check out their brand new album Spend the Night With... for some good rock



If you get the chance to see Marching Church live, do it



The chaos before the storm. Anasazi played a killer set then towards the end the sound guys took their mic and proceeded to flip the switch on the bass amp. The stage manager was met with a quick fist to the mouth



As things escalated the singer took the chain from his boot and whipped it around like a mace



The staff retreated so he spiked a few stage monitors and chucked a chair into the crowd



Mostly everyone there knew what they were getting into and was generally stoked on Anasazi's set. Hopefully the sound guys learned not to unplug mics and turn off amps but apparently after they were too scared to work and suggested that everybody there was lucky he didn't have a gun. They shut down the show at the Teragram



While the organizers scrambled to find a new venue to continue the show I went next door to check out Alexander Heir's art show







Hours later and the show was back on at Union a few miles away. Warthog with their second set of the day



Everyone jammed up front to witness the first ever US appearance of Sweden's Brainbombs
