A punk show under a freeway in the Cypress Park section of Los Angeles got really wild last Saturday when the cops showed up.

The secret show featured local acts Dead City, Barrage, Wacko, N8NOFACE, Section H8, Clorox Dream, Self Sabotage, and Alpha & Omega.

Photos show a pretty standard punk show, but KTLA reports that "some revelers setting off fireworks while others disrupted traffic." The LAPD issued a "citywide tactical alert" to disperse a large crowd. The event took place in Egret Park, which is by an overpass and according to the Los Angeles Times, some of the punks spilled onto the freeway, allegedly disrupting traffic.

Video footage shows cops unable to properly get into the show, so they started shooting "less-lethal rounds," typically rubber bullets to attempt to disperse the crowd. The pit just seemingly got more intense. If you ask me, there are probably better ways to break up a public gathering like this, but I am not a trained police offer and technically, nobody asked me.

Here are some clips and photos we found:

Here is some additional footage and video from before and after cops showed up.
