A celebration of the darker, death rock side of punk rock, LA Dark Fest will see all sorts of black-clad reprobates and goths descend on the Viper Room on Saturday. Topping the bill is former Christian Death Adolescents, Social Distortion and DI guitarist Rick Agnew; he’ll be performing CD’s classic Only Theatre of Pain album in its entirety. Similarly, Joe Wood fronted TSOL during the Jack Grisham-less years and he’ll be performing that band’s 1984 Change Today album. Also on the bill is manic punks The Wraith, Death Crux, 13th Sky, Detox, Riki and The Meldamor.

LA Dark Fest takes place at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 12 at the Viper Room.
