  1. i understand that the folk who put the diy night on saturday done their best. was it on sunday night? i gave up by then as the pub was miles from were we where staying. theres gonna be a lotta folk out there out of pocket. if anyone out there knows the promoters addresses please post on line. as i paid cash for ticket & i’ll not get refund.

  2. Apparently they’ve emptied their house and done a runner, according to a post on Pompey Punks FB page from a girl who went round there for a refund.

  3. Sat and Sun were fantastic, can’t thank the bands and the organisers enough for everything they did to bring us a brilliant couple of nights out of the wreckage.

    Punk By The Sea DIY will go down in history as one of the best examples of punk ethics in action.

  4. Absolutely awesome weekend. We were priviledged to open this show and loved every minute. For a debut gig it was mental!!. It was great to be a small part of such a monumental event that restored peoples faith in the Punk Scene.
    All credit to Bubba Tara, Coppo, The Charred Hearts lads, Sound guy Ben, Matty from the Milton Arms and anyone else who I’ve missed they know who they are.
    cheers

    Dogtown Rebels
