NOFX: 30 Years of F-ckin’ Up

Thursday, March 17
3:30PM - 4:30PM

Austin Convention Center
Room 12AB
531 E 4th St

Arguably the longest running and most successful independent-punk band of all time, NOFX has found a longevity no one would have expected when the band’s debut album came out in 1988. But defying the world’s expectations has been NOFX’s forté. In NOFX: The Hepatitis Bathtub And Other Stories, the band’s members—"Fat Mike” Burkett, Aaron "El Hefe” Abeyta, Eric “Smelly” Sandin, and Eric Melvin—open up about the band and their lives. This being NOFX, it’s hardly a staid memoir, but more like a funnier, grosser, and darker version of Mötley Crüe’s The Dirt. The band joins Kyle Ryan of The A.V. Club to talk about the book, the band, and that time Fat Mike got banned from SXSW.
