Brothers Shawn and Mark Stern of LA punk band Youth Brigade founded BYO Records in 1982 out of the roots of the punk activist Better Youth Organization. They went on to release records by Social Distortion, 7 Seconds, NOFX and Rancid. Jeff Alulis’s (aka Jeff Penalty of the Dead Kennedys) documentary Let Them Know: The Story of Youth Brigade and BYO Records, screens Saturday 10/10 as part of Riot Fest, in advance of Youth Brigade’s show that night with NOFX at the Congress Theater.
