On Saturday, March 2, 2013, N.S.M. Arizona attended the 5th annual Oi Fest in Tonopah, Arizona.
This is a music festival specifically geared towards the pro-white crowd, especially skinheads. This is the 5th time I've attended the Oi Fest, along with friends from the White Knights of America. As with previous years, The National Socialist Movement set up a table with merchandise and recruitment information. We arrived via the back way through Gila Bend and set up at noon. A junked van covered with graffiti was conveniently placed directly across from our table.
From time to time, I would go over and take a few whacks at it with a sledge hammer. With one swing, I knocked out a window. Others also enjoyed swinging hammers upon steel and glass, while a few other people played horseshoes.
Once the sun fell behind the horizon, it was time to close up the shop and have a little fun. Four bands, including White Knuckle Driver, Empire Falls, Max Resist and Youngland performed into early Sunday morning. Max Resist and White Knuckle Driver have been annual regulars at the Oi Fest. Empire Falls, associated with O.G.S. (Old Glory Skinheads) was beginning to make their mark out west. And... Jello shots for everyone!
Youngland performed at the 2011 Oi Fest and also at the N.S.M. Pomona rally after party in Riverside, CA. As an added bonus, Youngland handed out free PWA & Youngland "Double Strike" CD's. Some assembly was required and I had to provide my own jewel case. I'm actually playing it, as I write this entry. As with every Oi Fest, the mosh pit gets busy. N.S.M. Woman's Division member, "Thora," braved the male environment, likely potential for injury and ventured into the pit. She emerged intact, although a little tired.
