Fun Fun Fun Fest Preview: Black Stage Punks

Dwarves (Fri., 3pm) Sure the naked, masked guitarist is gone, but singer Blag Dahlia's short, witty songwriting assures the California mainstays will play 20 great songs in 25 minutes.

Joyce Manor (Sat., 1:20pm) Thumpy, simple, Cali punk, with a focus on great songwriting.

The Briefs (Sun., 5:10pm) S.F. quartet that spawned the Cute Lepers returns with a three-chord vengeance.

Lagwagon (Sun., 7pm) Fat Wreck Chords' flagship band played intricate pop punk before it got dumbed down into nonsense.

Fucked Up (Sun., 7:55pm) Deep, epic post punk with hardcore vocals and an even more hardcore live show, from Toronto.
