Ashtray Monument Records threw a party in their hometown of New Port Richey and many bands from their roster and some of our friends (some local and some from further away) for a day of live music that went into the night. Ashtray Monument Records were founded by three NPR buddies with the simple goal of celebrating the music they love: punk rock. They found it was getting more difficult find, so they decided to take it upon ourselves to try and help catalog some of punk rock scene so that more people can enjoy it as much as they do.
