Shawn Stern of Youth Brigade and BYO with guest host Alison Braun commence the first installment of The Punk Rock Chronicles flyer series. This 3-episode series starts with a show that was held on February 11, 1983 at a venue called the Mendiolas Ballroom in Huntington Park. One of the most violent punk rock riots during this era kicked off that evening. Listen to our guest recall the craziness that ensued that evening from a perspective of being a promoter, playing and taking photos as this was part of Youth Movement 83. There was a lot of promise of being a fun night of great music with an amazing lineup that included The Exploited, CH3, Youth Brigade, Vandals, Aggression, and Suicidal Tendencies.
