This Sept’s FYF Fest To Be Balls-Out Awesome (As Usual)

I just got the announce from Sean Carlson of Part Time Punks & The FYF Fest (redundancy noted, but the name has now been changed from its former “F*ck Yeah Fest” moniker) for the festival’s Sept. 5th lineup, and holy smokes is it going to be amazing. (Tix go on sale tomorrow–details behind the jump.)

It also will be themed around “Save Our State Parks,” and will be held at the Los Angeles Historic State Park (formerly The Cornfield, where Cirque Berserk is performing now), so that’s super-cool too.
