Jello Biafra's Label To Toast 20th

The punk label Alternative Tentacles -- founded by the former frontman,

Jello Biafra, of one of the seminal punk bands of '70s, the

Dead Kennedys -- will celebrate its 20th anniversary with a

party and concert at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco on

Saturday (June 26). Such label mainstays as punkers Causey Way,

Chicago homeless schizophrenic Wesley Willis and hard rockers

the Hellworms and Creeps on Candy will be on hand. The

event takes place in the shadow of a legal battle between Biafra and

the other former members of the Kennedys -- guitarist East Bay Ray,

bassist Klaus Flouride and drummer D.H. Pelligro are

suing Biafra over the distribution of royalties from the back catalog

of Dead Kennedys CDs currently distributed by Alternative Tentacles.

The trial is scheduled to take place in San Francisco District Court

on Sept. 27.
