Thanks to all who made 2013 a success!

In our first year 2013, Mocktoberfest included 4 days on 2 stages of garage punk, electronic industrial, disco dance punk, and hard core metal, not to mention a visit from our special guest, Klaus Flouride of the Dead Kennedys!

The complete Mocktoberfest 2013 line-up:

  • Armed for Apocalypse
  • Atomic Machines
  • Box of Kittens
  • The Cutthroats
  • Shananagens
  • Death Valley High
  • King Loses Crown
  • Jesus and the Dinosaurs
  • nSLASHa
  • Klank
  • The Sky Bleeds White

We showed the films Anarchism in America and Afro-Punk to challenge the stereotypical view of punk rock and anarchy as delinquent, and to educate the public of the positive, peaceful punk anarchist.

At the end of the festival, a lucky winner received our grand raffle prize, a beautiful handmade electric guitar by Schroom Custom Guitar Works. Schroom Custom Guitar Works is an SF Bay Area shop that makes handmade custom electric guitars and basses, as well as repairs, modifications, refinishes, and setups on all guitars.
