“This film pays homage to the American DIY spirit and the diversity of the US musical landscape outside the commercial music industry. While many other music films never make it beyond hero worship, director Nicole Wegner consistently maintains eye level with her twelve interview partners,…”

We had some pretty amazing events in September. Our “Poems, Songs & Stories-A Literary Lounge by the LA River”, on September 10th was a bit hit! Writers and musicians contributed poetry, music and original writing to collective the mix. Our own Lewis MacAdams was in attendance for a glorious afternoon full of artistic expression and camaraderie. “

Punk Rock Swap Meets Canoga Park

I was excited to participate in two of these events locally in my backyard. Yet the second one I attended was violent. I had all my art and books damaged or destroyed by a fight that broke out. This was the kind of violence one sees in prison during a group rape. The environment was so filled with drugs and testosterone that I felt violated. I have been to many shows over my life span, supporting the punk rock scene, this was bad. So, the promoter and the owner (organization) of the place showed no interest in any apology. I guess punk rock comradery is dead. This is what shadows my heart for this place. I was ignored.  I feel that the history of what happened to me needs to be seen for what it was. The owner knew who violated my art and me. Yet he was not willing to do anything about it. I posted about this at the time it occurred. The bands playing the event did not support me or seemed to care at all. Some punkers I’ve know for 20 plus years too.  Very sad story and pathetic. I did a Go Fund Me and received some support and financial help. Yet, the time and love I put into creating something as an offering to the scene I love… is a challenge for me to get over. I thought it was a great time to support and honor each other. I guess not.

Mock set-up before event . I was so excited !
