Death Protector Collective

What the heck is this?
The first annual Death Protector Fest will be May 11th at The Backyard at Boca Fiesta and Palomino. We decided to do this as kind of a showcase of our friends and some of the best DIY bands ever. 2 stages, 10 bands, totally free. Yep, totally free. Bring money to buy some merch though!

We'll have some donation buckets set up too if you feel so inclined, but if not we'll take care of the rest! Just come and bang your fucking heads.
