Anyway, Rampart Skatepark is hosting another cool one tonight at 7 p.m., when the East Bay doom outfit Catapult the Dead meets up with Washington state's power-violence outfit Family Vacation for a night of plywood-shrouded excellence. Providing local support are pv band Waste Site and local radical noise-a-rinos Arugula ($5). Nice.
