“To introduce the idea of punk, one of the bands performed Saturday Atomic Machines during lunch hour at Hogan Middle School. "It was probably our best performance ever this year," drummer Joshua Conrow said. "They were really into it. It was so much fun." His band members agreed, and said despite the large number of children, it wrapped up peacefully without any issues. Resonating Christina Walkup's sentiment, frontman Dan Dafoe said punk received a misplaced negative stereotype. "There's so much positivity in (punk music's) message," Dafoe said. "It's about embracing who you are." The San Francisco band, also performing Saturday, will perform again on the festival's second day Friday at the Bay Terrace Theater.”
