Skate & Rock No. 3

Punk rock and skateboarding have always gone together like peas and carrots. From the Dogtown Boys in the '70s to the countless boarders turned full-time punks like U.S. Bombs' Duane Peters, you can't really separate the two. Wherever you see a homemade ramp and a group of teens, you will more than likely find an iPod or boom box loaded with Misfits and Dead Kennedys tunes somewhere nearby. Saturday at the Jamail Skate Park, catch the last of the season's three free concerts with local punk legends and scene vets Contortion Session and new-school kids Obamanation. The show is free, just like the skateboarding and possible broken wrists and scraped knees.
