Poster by Janelle Blarg

“Mosswood Meltdown is a pissed-off July 4th weekend celebration for the punk rock elite. Slum-goddess feminists, butch twinks, homo-masculine straight guys-we’re all ready to pogo our way to musical mayhem.” – John Waters

The epic Mosswood Meltdown, hosted by the inimitable John Waters, is returning to Oakland’s Mosswood Park July 1st and July 2nd. Today, they announce additional performers and single day lineups (for which tickets are on sale now). The festival’s newest additions include Twompsax (for their last performances ever), The 5678’s, Vore, and Teddy Bear Orchestra, joining “a legendary lineup” (Consequence) of headliners Le Tigre, Bratmobile for their first public performance in over 20 years, Gravy Train!!!!, ESG, Mika Miko, Snõõper, and more. The weekend will kick-off with a grand opening party at Thee Stork Club on Friday, featuring John Waters and Gravy Train!!!!. The antics will continue late into the night, with a smorgasbord of bombastic after parties (a full list can be found below). Tickets for the weekend are nearly sold-out, and single day tickets are expected to go quick. This is a weekend not-to-miss!
