Let's face it. If you're over thirty, have moved out of your
parents' house, and come to realize that "anarchy!" means no bridges, public
libraries, streets, or fire departments, idealism's a much harder pill to
swallow; especially when you're looking at it through possible liver damage.
But the dudes in Dan Padilla have fought hard to remain ethical, moral, and
honest well after more vocal members of the DIY punk community have "moved
on" to the comfort and status quo they once claimed to despise and swore
they'd "burn to the ground." Dan Padilla just wants some public space and
the freedom to play what they've created... and the asshole cops can still
go fuck themselves.
