Elliott Bay Book Company says
While many stories have been told about punk’s origins in other cities, those about Los Angeles --home of the Weirdos, the Bags, Los Plugz and, of course, band, X--have been much rarer. Told through first person accounts by musicians, writers and artists who were there during the earliest days of L.A. punk rock (including Pleasant Gehman, Robert “El Vez” Lopez, Exene Cervenka, Teresa Covarrubias, Kristine McKenna, Chris “D” Desjardins and many more), Under the Big Black Sun: a Personal History of L.A. Punk (DaCapo), co-written and edited by John Doe with Tom DeSavia shares unique, harrowing, funny and inspiring stories that reach across the breadth of what and who were punk in Los Angeles: not a single style or musical genre but the opening of many. John Doe is a founding member, songwriter and bass player for X, one of the most enduring, lauded, creative and long lived of punk bands. Seattle rock critic and writer Charles R. Cross interviews John Doe on our stage tonight. Don’t miss this.
