This show celebrates the birthday of John Wylie, owner of Aces High Tattoo Shop in West Palm Beach, but really a South Florida and hardcore scene legend beyond that. Wylie's tough-guy roots run deep — he played in approximately a million bands, most notably Morning Again and Where Fear and Weapons Meet, and also founded the influential label Eulogy Recordings.
So, plenty of people are glad he was born, and Aces High and Propaganda have put together a bill of the next local greats across the punkish spectrum. Traveling from the farthest south is Radioboxer, a female-led, circus-like act proudly repping Hialeah. On the street side of things is Out of Sorts, which even uses the mostly forgotten "Oi!" tag to label its brand of rough-and-ready punk rock. New Coke — a band surely ripe for a cease-and-desist — is spanking new but promising in its swampy, Gun Club-referencing sound.

And finally, headlining it all is Everymen, one of the best acts on the burgeoning Lake Worth scene. Its shambling take on punkabilly would make Lux Interior proud, and it's even been known to breathe fire onstage.
