Thank you for writing this. I think punk rock has saved many lives, mine included.
Last night I got to see Alice Bag read from her new book “Violence Girl: East L.A. Rage To Hollywood Stage, A Chicana Punk Story” over at the Beauty Is Pain Boutique in Hollywood. She also performed a live musical soundtrack to her readings which was comprised of an older Mexican tune…
White Rabbit performed by the Bags, August 1979, live at the Hong Kong Cafe. Someday I will open a combination pastry shop and bookstore and it will be named Feed Your Head. Enjoy.
“MIchelene: So, I imagine with this compartmentalization of your life, there are several different wardrobes involved? (laughs)
Alice: Yeah, it’s kinda like putting on your uniform for work or putting a bag on your head before you go onstage. It’s the transition, getting into another personality. When I’m gonna go onstage, I have to feel a transition. There are people who are on tour, riding in a van in their jeans and whatever and then they just step onstage wearing the same thing. I can’t do that. I have to feel that transition into a stage personality. Apart from your everyday experience, there’s another side of you that can go to places that the everyday person can’t go.”
