We had the extreme pleasure of playing at 702 Skatepark with American Buckshot, 1/2 Ast, The Peccadilloes, Die Laughing and The Krooked Rats. An insane session ensued afterwards in the killer wooden bowl with feats of anti-gravity being displayed on the over-vert wall by crazed locals at blazing speeds. A good time was had by all.

JOINS DICKIES, DUKOWSKI, MORMONS IN SAN PEDRO (2004)
La Zona Rosa #2 (formerly the Dancing Waters in San
Pedro) invited us back for another show following the benefit for the
Channel Street Skatepark. This one was a doozy with a killer lineup
of bands. The Mormons opened the show with each band member wearing
a white shirt and tie, topped off by a styrofoam bicycle helmet. The
lead singer had the retarded act down to a science and the band was
belting it out. Definitely an up and coming band to watch for. The Chuck
Dukowski Sextet was next. Chuck belongs in the bass player's hall of
fame for the sound he put down back in the day with Black Flag, and
it was cool to see him banging out the same emotion-fueled bass lines
behind a saxophone and girl screamer. Definitely something different.
Our show went well with lots of backup vocals from the pit and a good
catch when Brian did a flip into the crowd on "Skateboard we do."
And last but not least, The Dickies still have it. Great to hear their
classics and share the stage with one of the pioneering acts of SoCal
BENEFIT FOR SAN PEDRO
CHANNEL STREET SKATEPARK
JFA was proud to play an all-ages show to benefit the skater-built Channel Street Skatepark in San
Pedro on October 8, 2004, at La Zona Rosa #2
(formerly the Dancing Waters). Also on the bill were Toys That Kill, The Red
Onions and The Voids. The show raised over $2,000 for additional 'crete for this
already killer park. Thanks to everyone for coming out!
