Year of the Fistmas
Year of the Fistmas
A non-denominational Rock N Roll event to benefit the less fortunate in our Oakland community.

Teaming up with the non-profit "Punks with Lunch" to donate a large portion of the door.

Punks With Lunch makes approximately 150 lunches a week for people in West Oakland experiencing homelessness and distribute them with needle kits, hygiene packs and miscellaneous items such as dog food and tarps depending on funding and donations. Each lunch has a sandwich, fruit, water bottle, snack, and napkin. These lunches cost about $1 to make and we have been able to successfully grow in scope since our foundation. Originally starting in a small home kitchen, we now host meal prep in a warehouse in West Oakland and have two routes for distribution as well as a stationary needle exchange in more populated areas. We have grown personal relationships with the people we see on a weekly basis, and it’s a passion that has helped us forge both a stronger sense of community and a bond between our own volunteers. With winter approaching, we are hoping to expand our lunch offerings to include hot meals for our friends experiencing homelessness. With a limited budget and the difficulty of not being an established 501 c3, we’re seeking a solution to help our program continue to grow and offer even more services and resources with time. We’ve already establish a rapport with the people in our community but we’d like to see it grow. Punks With Lunch is already way more than we expected it to be in a tiny kitchen with five people one year ago, and we have high hopes for building something bigger than what our dreams have now grown to be.

Rock N Roll out of Oakland CA. We've got past members of Dolorata, Fabulous Disaster, Neutralboy and The Lean. But we sure as hell don't sound like any of those bands!!


“YEAR OF THE FIST - Death Breath Light & Pain : I must admit I should know more about this band than I do know because Squeaky Hell, a really cool lass who I've lots of respect, plays for this band. What I will tell you is they play raw Punk Rock N Roll to a very high standard. In fact they're one of the best bands to come out of California in a while without a doubt. This 10-track debut album is certainly well worth investing in if raw Punk Rock N Roll is your thing. Every track is worthy of a listen but the ones that stuck out included 'Death Of Me', 'Never Go Home', 'Killer On The Road' and 'I Want Your Love'. Yeah go on and give this band some support!"

The Lucky Eejits
WE are The Lucky EEjits, an east bay trio punk rock and roll band. Blasting high speed, energetic and upbeat music. With lots of "whoahs and ohs" the Eejits rein the crowd in with easy sing along songs about memorable experiences and the power of unity. Come check us out or have us play at a venue near you! The EEjits smashed into the local scene with an original line up of 6 eccentric gentlemen playing folky irish punk. After a short change in the bands line up, they now have began eating (touring) the west coast in search of the coolest clubs and hardest punks.
