Seminal Los Angeles punk bands T.S.O.L., the Crowd and the
Adolescents played in an L.A. club Tuesday to celebrate the release
of a new album by latter-day Southern California punks Pennywise.
Though all the members of Pennywise, whose Straight Ahead came
out Tuesday (June 8) attended the party at the Key Club, the band did
not take the stage. The previous night, while Pennywise were appearing
on the live call-in advice show "Loveline," on Los Angeles radio station
KROQ-FM, guitarist Fletcher Dragge threatened the lives of hosts
Adam Carolla and Dr. Drew Pinsky. During Pennywise's previous appearance
on the program, in 1997, Dragge reportedly vomited on Pinsky.
