Featuring: Public Nuisance & The Spice Pistols
D.I.– Coming out of the streets of Fullerton California, D.I. was formed in the shadows of The Adolescents back in 1983 in a studio behind a pawn shop. The Adolescents, Social Distortion, Agent Orange and several other local early punk rock pioneers were the breeding ground from which D.I. was born. D.I. branded their own form of punk rock that complimented the Orange County Punk scene in sound and attitude. Casey Royer is known for his cutting and outrageous social commentary through humor and he continues to power out the juice as only one from the original scene can. All the present members were part of the Fullerton and north Orange County Punk scene which proves to be the key ingredient to keeping the personality that makes D.I. what it is.
