This Machine Destroys Borders

4 bands on a Sunday night? What in the hell are people thinking?

The Proud, The Few, The Birthday, The Secret show

On 4/20/2016 The DESCENDENTS played a secret show at The Standing Room in Hermosa Beach for Fletcher’s 50th birthday (he’s the Pennywise dood). It was insane!
