The band and its fans descended upon the venue and turned it into exactly what guitarist Fletcher Dagge thought to be impossible the night previous: "To have a nice rowdy old school bar show."

It was rowdy, old school, and... full of some of the best carousing drunks and skater punks in LA.

The Air Conditioned Lounge squeezed a Pennywise show into an already booked night of local LA and Venice Beach bands, including Hellride and Taxi. People at the door going in to see those bands had not a clue whatsoever that they'd soon be walking into the one of the craziest aggro Bro mosh-pits around.

Upcoming Events

Instead of riots, mace, SWAT teams, helicopters, barricades, and billy clubs, it was pretty much a regular Thursday night at the AC Supper Club, with the inclusion of the low-security high-volume Pennywise blitzkrieg hour.

"Fuck Authority! We're just the fucking messengers," screams the nicest angry 7-foot tall guitarist to date, followed by a perfect performance of Bro Hymn.

Venice Beach's skate punkers, of which there were many, were pretty much out of their minds. "Whoa dude, I've been blasted!," said one. Indeed.
