Hippie Fight https://www.facebook.com/HippieFight
is an American punk rock band formed in Austin, Texas in 1981. The band was subsequently based in San Francisco, California, and are currently based in Portland, Oregon. Originally formed as The Stains before changing their name, the band also changed their name to a different initialism of MDC with every new record released. They play fast hardcore punk music espousing far-left sociopolitical ideals, with singer Dave Dictor expressing his animal rights, gay rights, transgender rights, pro-racial equality and anti-capitalist convictions.
MDC eventually released material through ex-Dead Kennedy’s singer Jello Biafra’s independent Alternative Tentacles label. In the 1990s, Dictor published editorials for the internationally distributed fanzine Maximumrocknroll. MDC’s initial run ended in 1995, and the band spent five years on hiatus before Dictor returned in 2000 with new band members.
MDC has been touring the states and the world for over 30 years playing shows with Everyone from The Dead Kennedy’s to DOA, Agent Orange, SUB HUMANS, Bad Religion and countless others -If you want to see a legendary Political Punk Rock band with a positive message, then this is a show not to miss.
