Legendary San Francisco wreckers Flipper commemorate its 30-year anniversary at the 2008 Fun Fun Fun Fest, Nov. 8-9, in Waterloo Park, with Nirvana's Krist Novoselic in tow. The third annual event, produced by local booking and promotion company Transmission Entertainment, is expanding once more with the addition of a fourth stage, devoted to comedians (Tim & Eric Awesome Show, ColdTowne Comedy Hour) and quieter indie acts (Shearwater, Tim Fite), but the real draw is the punk and metal stage, featuring Bad Brains, All, the Adolescents, and the previously announced reunion of Dead Milkmen. Other highlights include Clipse, Atmosphere, Z-Trip, the National, Deerhoof, Dan Deacon, and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, not to mention locals like Mammoth Grinder, Til We're Blue or Destroy, Krum Bums, and Grupo Fantasma.
