Video from Alice Bag’s “Violence Girl’ event at La Luz de Jesus 10/11

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.”

This evening! “Topless Summer Girls” extravaganza at La Luz de Jesus

“Topless Summer Love Girls” is a zany, pop culture commentary on growing up male in the era of Playboy, feminism, and swimsuit editions. Arming men with new insights into themselves and the eternal battle between the sexes, this hilarious and sexy book filled with hundreds of titillating photos of half-naked women is a passionate and unapologetic examination of men, women, and breasts. Come join author Leslie Cabaraga – and enjoy live Western Swing music from Will Ryan and the Cactus County Cowboys – see the Controversial Port-O-Bra and burlesque by Eliza Bane plus free beer and margaritas!

11/27: Joe Sorren signs “Painting – Sculpture 2004 – 2010” at La Luz Gallery

Joe Sorren’s oil paintings redefine traditional naturalist scenery such as caves, reefs, and seashores, inserting a surreal mood through soft but eerie imagery, thick Impressionist- inspired brushstrokes, and childlike, yet animalistic, figures caught in mid-motion. The new gothic sentiment is subtly imbued in pale hued paintings that feature organic and distorted forms with exaggerated heads springing out of gelatinous blobs. Although the subjects are often childlike, the postures and weariness betray adult maturity, drawing a fine line between the vulnerable and precocious.
