The FREE TABLING OPPORTUNITY in Fresno just got sweeter: ACxDC and RESIST AND EXIST!

The details are all the same as in the previous blog post, but I thought I'd share some cool news! Our headliners for the fest are ACxDC (straight edge power violence  legends) and RESIST AND EXIST, arguably one of the most recognizable names in radical punk history.

 

To sum it all up, if you can be in Fresno, CA on October 15, you can table FOR FREE and catch some super good bands. I hope to see some of you there.
