June 11 at Crescent Ballroom

On June 11th we will play a special show at Crescent Ballroom to celebrate the birthday of Dennis Salazar.  Dennis is a grown up Tempe skater kid who used to skate a ramp behind the house where JFA practiced back in the early 10980’s.  Slope Records is sponsoring the event.  The White demons will open the show.  It’s been a long time since they have played in the valley.  The Love Me nots take the spot after us then the Smoke Bombs close it out with a special set of Jr. Achievement songs featuring the original singer Jon Yousko.  It’s gonna be hot!
