(September 2012 article )
I went to this event in Santa Monica to support David Markey & Jordan Schwartz. I brought my family, and they had some fun. We parked a couple of miles away and walked into the Track 16 Gallery. It was good to see some friends from the day and say hello. Ed Culver told me a quick story about a praying mantis that rode on the back of his tortoise. The waffle sandwich from the food truck was OK and White Flag and The Last were good. Though my oldest son studied the guitarists and my youngest studied the drummers this evening, they were not into the full evening of bands, so we took our long trek home back to the San Fernando Valley. I am glad we touched bases here tonight. Congratulation comrades!! The book is out now “WE GOT POWER! Hardcore Punk Scenes ~ 1980s and beyond, based in good old Southern California.
