When I found out that Los Angeles punk rock legend, and personal friend, Alice Bag was about to have her first book titled “Violence Girl” published (by the always amazing Feral House) I asked her along with photographer and friend Dawn Wirth who had just released a book of Bags photos taken at Hollywood Forever Cemetery in 1978 to do a double book signing event at La Luz de Jesus Gallery. I also suggested that Alice play some songs on acoustic guitar and that I’d love to play bass with her. Alice made it out to Los Angeles from her home in Phoenix AZ and the night before the event we rehearsed three songs along with Lysa Flores to be included in Alice’s reading. The event surpassed my expectations by double with a full gallery and store. After the reading and performance a huge line formed which wrapped around the gallery and into the back room of the store with people who bought Alice and Dawns books wanting to get them signed and say “hello.”
La Luz de Jesus Gallery presents Los Angeles punk rock pioneers Alice Bag’s “Violence Girl” and Dawn Wirth’s The Bags – Hollywood Forever” double book release and signing party.
