Rolling Stone:

Fans, however, seem to be enjoying Punkvoter's mix of music and message. An outdoor concert in Berkeley on April 3rd attracted more than 5,500 people; about 1,500 fans filed into Riverside's enclosed parking lot.

Before the Berkeley show, dozens of kids mobbed Burkett as he handed out free DVDs of Uncovered: The Whole Truth About the Iraq War, a documentary featuring interviews with intelligence experts who question the Bush administration's motives in the Middle East. "Kids are really being educated, most of them," says Burkett. "That's what they're telling me -- that they had no idea this was going on."

I'd like to think that the reason kids "mobbed" Fat Mike was just for the DVD's of Uncovered. But it probably has more to do with the fact that it's Fat Mike. :-) But still pretty cool.

And hats off to Fat Mike and NOFX for spreading the gospel.
