Am I allowed to bring a gerbil?

add knife fight

Posted by Anonymous | December 9, 2011 2:39 PM

especially no gerbils! They are trying to avoid a repeat of last year where there were a bunch of fat guys in black t-shirts placing rodents inside each others assholes. Apparently PETA has been asking questions.

NAsum? Why? When you are a 2 piece, and one of the members dies, it's time to call it quits.

Warrior Kids? Cool!

No Dogs because of the satanic sausage.

No hamsters because sausages fighting over who gets to shove the hamster up their ass never ends well.

Posted by Anonymous | December 9, 2011 5:48 PM

More grindcore! Get Worlds, Backslider, Triac, Cellgraft, Shitstorm blahblahblahblahblastbeats! Or just Repulsion, that would be good enough.

hank wood and the hammerheads are gonna beat the shit out of best coast.

Posted by Anonymous | December 9, 2011 7:49 PM

Wack lineup so far.
Only 3 bands I like - Ringworm, Black Witchery and Disma.

Posted by Anonymous | December 10, 2011 1:08 AM

Some of you retards just can't be pleased. If the lineup is 'wack' or you absolutely can't deal with Best Coast being on the bill then just STAY HOME! No one will miss your Debbie Downer ass, guaranteed.

Best Coast? what the hell?

Posted by Anonymous | December 10, 2011 3:49 AM

No one's mentioning how a couple of the bands are racist and really need to be dropped.

Posted by Anonymous | December 10, 2011 9:01 PM

this is gonna be a sweet gay cruize scene

Posted by Anonymous | December 10, 2011 10:01 PM

wait, how the hell are Nasum playing what, with their singer/guitarist/founding member being dead and all?

Posted by Anonymous | December 11, 2011 10:02 AM

You fucking morons are aware that Nyogthaeblisz are Mexican and Native American and have no direct political motives right?

Posted by NH | December 11, 2011 4:18 PM

Well, you ^^, fucking moron should be aware that, whatever their background, this is the label that Nyogthaeblisz choses to put records out on:
Scroll through there a little bit and get back to us.

racist sausage. smh

Posted by Anonymous | December 12, 2011 12:21 AM

People, that band nyoggpoopoo or whatever is not the only band playing that is racist and in cahoots with bad guys. Disma vocalist has nazi S thing tattooed on his arm, and has some industrial nazi band called sturmkaiser or something. John from incantation told me about it

Posted by Anonymous | December 12, 2011 11:19 AM

Thats a sig rune and it pre dates the Nazis by many many many years.YES he obviously has it because the Nazis used it but it is not a "Nazi S thing" just so you know for the next time you decide to jump on a bandwagon and rally around some fake weak cause to get bands removed from a fest. His tattoo is not a valid reason to try and get his band removed from the fest They have zero Nazi lyrics or imagery in their album.If you want to police peoples personal beliefs and try to get them removed from a fest you will also have to remove the drug addicts the pedophiles the thieves the communists and the people calling for the decapitation and slaughter of Christians as well.Or are all those things acceptable behavior to you? Your selective outrage is so pathetic.

^nazi apologist

Posted by Anonymous | December 12, 2011 10:37 PM

I highly doubt Disma will play now that Nyog is kicked off

Posted by Anonymous | December 13, 2011 12:45 AM

Hilarious that this fucking idiot above thinks that it is his duty to inform the world about another mans nazi band but can't even get the fucking name right (it's Sturmfuhrer and if you had more than two brain cells to rub together you would have used the internet to figure that out). LOLLL @ 'John from Incantation told me', you fucking namedropping bitch.

Posted by MASSIVE LOL | December 14, 2011 12:44 AM

hawt shit comments. agree with the fact that 11:19 is a namedropping bitch.

Posted by Nygothaeblisz | December 15, 2011 2:34 PM

dont' mess with tejas! lineup so far so good: this fest has plenty of diversity so of course people are gonna talk bullshit.

Nygo only got the boot cause some washed up old crusties said they wouldn't get on their commerical airline flight across the atlantic unless they did.

Who gives a shit? no one from either side is going to be converted to the other by seeing a black metal band of all things play at a punk fest. I guess it's easier to cry about something entirely meaningless on the internet than it is to do real activism though.

Posted by Anonymous | December 21, 2011 3:26 AM

Haha Nyogthaeblisz is actually a badass band. They're not Nazi's whatsoever, but whatever. Sucks that the guy that runs all these bars is gonna let someone from around the world tell him how to run his show. Either way I get to see them in my hometown, so chaos will still be just as much fun as any other year. And I for one am Stoked to see nasum. It's a once in a lifetime thing for myself. Never saw them.

Posted by Anonymous | December 22, 2011 3:06 AM

i would love it if best coast is playing with antisect iceage and ghoul at one show...dont know why people are griping, theres been plenty of stuff on the past few fests that not withing the definitions of punk or even rock...if you dont like it book your own little mess

Posted by non-a mouse | December 28, 2011 2:11 PM

Those seeking to protect us from the Nazis and their thought controlling minions seem to have missed a few possible targets. If we are to determine the political leanings of all, hence creating total auditory purity we must dig a bit further. The links in the chains have not been thoroughly inspected. Should we not trace back? Should we not test? Should would we not expose all those that do not pass? It is our duty.

Have we truly looked at their pasts? Have we examined all their alliances, past and present?

Go forth, test these souls! Onward to Purity!

I've lost some brain cells from reading this thread.

Posted by T | February 5, 2012 5:35 AM

punk is fuckin' dead. has been since 1980.all you punks should be like your music, dead.

Posted by satan | February 15, 2012 1:01 AM

Wow. This is really sad. It reminds me of "Chaos Days" and "Asylum"; an awesome music fest and exchange of ideas ruined by hordes of "anti-p.c" boneheads in a hurry to "rock out" and "fuck the politics"...I don't care what you say about me, but excusing nazi/fascist bands because "Their music's awesome" or "They aren't even white" is really fucking weak..Let them go pollute Ozzfest or Lolapalooza or better yet Bonnaroo, but please keep them away from a truly awesome fest.
