Fri. September 12th 2003 Fernwood (NRG) Community Centre (All Ages)
5:30 pm - 11:00
Presented by: Fancy Boys United
Due to a gongshow of bullshit, the dodgey fuck booking the Red Alert tour fucked up the airline tickets & as such, made them useless. As such, Red Alert will not be making it to their West Coast North American tour. Vocalist Steve Smith & all members express incredibly sincere apologies & regrets in their choice of promoter. If anyone ever comes across a dodgy skyte by the name of Phil "Bones" Stengel, have the fucker's head.
That said, all else is a go & 5+ hours of some of the greatest international Oi!/Punk that has ever been is apt to take place this Friday. Ticket prices have been lowered & anyone whom has tickets they paid 12$ for will be reimbursed the difference of 4$ at the show-please don't hastle the kind folk at Ditch & Lyle's.
Sport will for hooliganation, though mind your manners, as it is as community center. As such, no booze, no drugs, no blues, no thugs, no banners, no racist scum, no bad manners, no nonsense & no fun. Booths will be set up by Fancy Boys United, Longshot Music (vancouver) + others, so save your lunch money. Tofu dogs & lemonade stans as well.
Confirmed lineup & times as of yet are as follows:

the HANOVER SAINTS (Sacramento, CA)
BETTY FORD (Victoria)
the RAMPANT (Victoria)
the LANCASTERS (Vancouver, BC)
thee ATOMICS (Kamloops, BC)

Tix are now 8$ adv @ Ditch & Lyle's in Victoria (10$ @ door), though if you get there before 6:00, it's only 8$ @ the door- come early & save a couple bux, as well as take in the bands that have to brave the stage early to a crowd of family members & staff. Further outstanding details will be made available once they are confirmed. Get your strength thru Oi!, children.
