You know Jim Lindberg as a founder and lead singer of Pennywise (on and off and back on again) as well as the Black Pacific, the author of Punk Rock Dad and the main subject of the spin-off documentary The Other F Word.

That association has produced a Nov. 15 benefit show for the San Clemente-based ocean-and beach-access protecting nonprofit at a small club in Lindberg's hometown of Hermosa Beach.
