Napa State Hospital is a psychiatric hospital in Napa, California, founded in 1875. It is located along California State Route 221, also known as the Napa Vallejo Highway.

On June 13, 1978, Lux Interior and his band the Cramps played an event at the hospital that was witnessed by only about 100 patients, a couple of staffers and some punk-rockers that had driven up from San Francisco.

On a video recently discovered, Lux tells the crowd “We’re the Cramps, and we’re from New York City, and we drove 3,000 miles to play for you people.” “F**k you!” was the audience response.
