Berserktown III lineup (Psychic TV, Ana Curra plays Paralisis Permanente, Powell, D Unit, Brainbombs, Gorilla Angreb, more)

Berserktown is an annual festival that goes down in LA that's more interested in booking challenging music than big names (like for example, Destruction Unit and Thee Oh Sees were headliners last year).
