2. Les Claypool @ The Warfield, San Francisco, June 29, 2007

With Bad Religion, Pennywise, The Vandals and Circle Jerks headlining the main stage it was a punk extravaganza. But I have to say there were some great surprises with UK’s The Automatic and The Gallows, both of which simply blew my mind. There were also other attractions like Lucha Libre Wrestling, Skateboard Ramp and a ton of cool shopping.
