I'm a little late posting on this event, since it opened in L.A. tonight. The event was kicked off with a performance by the Gun Club, with Kid, Ward, and Terry hosting various guest vocalists to fill in for the late Jeffrey Lee. If you're not in your pajamas yet, you might still catch them.
The Don't Knock The Rock festival is curated by Allison Anders and Tiffany Anders and this year features several of the women I've interviewed for my Women In L.A. Punk series: Jenny Lens, Dawn Wirth, Theresa Kereakes, Tracy Lea and Allison Anders herself.
Tracy Lea takes her star turn when the festival screens Dave Markey's "Lovedoll Superstar" on Monday, July 3rd at 12 noon. Immediately afterwards, check out a panel discussion and photo show with Jenny Lens, Dawn Wirth and Theresa Kereakes from 2:30 - 3:30pm, moderated by Michael Des Barres and Allison Anders. All events take place at Red Cat Theatre in Downtown L.A. Don't miss this opportunity to meet and experience the work of these talented women. An exhibition of their photos is on display now through the end of the festival.
Wish I could be there!
