ABOUT THE CUCKOO'S NEST: The Nest in Costa Mesa was THE club in Orange County for punk rock from the late 70's until it closed in 1981. Some legendary touring bands played the Nest like the Ramones, the Damned, Dead Kennedys, 999, New York Dolls, Iggy, etc. and it was a regular gig spot for local So Cal bands like TSOL, the Crowd, the Dickies, X, Weirdos, Black Flag, Circle Jerks, Adolescents, Social Distortion, the Crowd, and MANY more. Famous for the music scene it fostered - it was also infamous for teenage mayhem and fights between the punks and the cowboy crowd that hung at Zubie's next door ... definitely, the stuff legends are made of! The Nest has an extra special place in our hearts here since it is where Sk8Kings founders Richy and Maria had their first date in October 1980 - to see the Gears and Agent Orange play. From that night on - the rest as they say "is history" and in that way, we have the Cuckoo's Nest to thank for the beginning of our story!
