Wacko At Denny's

Green Day Donate $2,000 To Cover Damages From Recent Hardcore Punk Show At A Denny’s


A Wacko show held at a Denny’s location in Santa Ana, CA earlier this month recently made international headlines. A key part of that story was how damages caused by the audience during the hardcore punk band’s set left the 17-year-old first-time show promoter, Bryson Del Valle on the hook.

While initial damages to the establishment were expected to range around $600, the final tally was closer to $1800. While Wacko launched this initial GoFundMe to help cover the costs, Bryson himself went on to launch a separate fundraiser himself over at this location.

His own campaign managed to catch the eye of Green Day, who went on to donate $2,000 to the fund. Between the two campaigns, nearly $4,700 has been raised as of press time.

If you want to dig in a bit deeper into how the show got booked, both Del Valle and members of Wacko recently spoke with about that fateful performance, which lasted until the manager intervened at the location.

A representative from Denny’s has since issued the following statement to Fox News on the show being booked at one of their locations:

Denny‚Äôs is a family-friendly restaurant and while we do have banquet space available at some restaurants, we do not allow events that can disrupt the dining experience of our guests. The manager was unaware a concert was planned, and the event organizers have been asked to pay for damages.”
