This is a great opportunity for Weekly World Central to change the blog category "Weird Stuff" to "Holy Shit!"
If you didn't feel comfortable at the HocoFest at Congress last weekend, perhaps you need to make plans to travel to the beeeuutiful town of Tonopah, Ariz., on Saturday, Oct. 24 for Oi Fest II 2009 (see promo above for last year's festivities). Hey, every town in Arizona has something wonderful and magical to offer, and Tonopah is no slouch.
I'd like to think this could be a great idea for a Pepe Le Pew festival. We'd all travel there on Vespas wearing black T-shirts with white stripes down our backs. Sadly, no, this is a rather special festival for those who don't mind being called Neo-Nazis. This is a Neo-Nazi music fest featuring the bands White Knuckle Driver, Slaghammer, Storm Troop 16, White Wash, Max Resist and according to white supremacist Website for Stormfront, there will be more.
If you're interested in tickets ... never visit this blog again.
