LOS ANGELES, May 20, 2013 — Punk rock veterans Social Distortion and Face To Face are set to headline The Hootenanny Festival. The 19th annual festival will feature bands, as well as custom cars, a Hootenanny Pin-up contest, local vendors, food and drink.

This year’s festival will take place at Oak Canyon Ranch in Orange County on July 6. Tickets will be available for pre-sale through KROQ on May 21 at 10am. They will be available to the public on May 23 at 10am via Front Gate Tickets.


Face To Face recently released their ninth studio album, Three Chords and a Half Truth, on Rise Records. Other bands playing this year include Old 97s, Murder By Death, Nashville P**sy, and Phil Alvin & Exene Cervenka. Alvin is from the Blasters and Cervenka is from the band, X.

Also performing will be Roger Alan Wade. Wade has written songs for some of country music’s biggest stars, such as Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams Jr., and the recently deceased George Jones.

Social Distortion is no stranger to The Hootenanny. Among many appearances, is their 1996 appearance with legend Jerry Lee Lewis. Social Distortion’s most recent album, Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes, was released in 2011.

For the car enthusiasts, there will be hundreds of custom cars on display, as well as artists, pinstripers and painters. There will also be a live chop top demo for people to watch.


The winner of the Pinup Contest will be crowned the next Sullen Angel Miss Hootenanny.

Tickets should go fast, as this is one of the most anticipated music and custom car festival. The first bands will go on at 12:30pm and Social Distortion will close out the day at 6:15pm.
