More About

Jello Biafra formed local record label Alternative Tentacles in 1979 to self-release The Dead Kennedys' brazen debut single, "California Über Alles." Thirty-three years later, he's the sole owner of Alternative Tentacles, making it the longest running, continuously operated independent label in the country with more than 450 releases. To commemorate the milestone, the ever-indignant Biafra's newest policy-protesting outfit, Guantanamo School of Medicine, will headline a bill of Alternative Tentacles artists Mojo Nixon, Death Hymn #9, and Pins of Light. Texan activist and cow-punk musician Nixon's appearance is especially rare, as is the promised live collaboration with Biafra to perform material from their satirical Prairie Home Invasion release — a reminder that Biafra's three decades of rigorous independence is paralleled by an unwavering sense of humor.
