Alice Bag, of seminal punk band The Bags, will read from her new memoir Violence Girl: East L.A. Rage to Hollywood Stage, A Chicana Punk Story, and perform songs as they occur in the context of the reading.
There will be a short question & answer session to follow performance.
Here is a life of many crossed boundaries, from East L.A.’s musica ranchera to Hollywood’s punk rock; from a violent male-dominated family to female-dominated transgressive rock bands. Alice’s feminist sympathies can be understood by the name of her satiric all-girl early Goth band Castration Squad. Violence Girl takes us from a violent upbringing to an aggressive punk sensibility.
