This weekend, Pizza Fest returns to El Corazon and Funhouse for a seventh year of greasy punk, rock, metal, and of course, pizza. The three-day festival is appropriately headlined by the long-running, Ramones-inspired, "original" pizza-themed punk band Personal & the Pizzas. This year's lineup also includes local favorites Boyfriends, Bread & Butter, SSDD (Steal Shit Do Drugs), VHS, Nail Polish and Stallion. Tickets are only $10 - $15 for a single night, or $30 for a festival pass, available here. There might be tickets at the door, but don’t be too punk to plan ahead. Last year, Pizza Fest sold out both Friday and Saturday nights!
To whet your appetite, here are a few videos of hot cheesy goodness:
