This roundtable highlights Alice Bag’s new memoir. Violence Girl
seizes the opportunity to explore within the Hollywood punk scene the
relationship between women and the city and the relevance of Alice’s East L.A. community in her music making. With Alice accompanied by her guitar, the roundtable considers the 1970s Hollywood punk scene as a vehicle for entering, if temporarily, segregated social spaces, and as a space that nurtured a feminist-inspired humor as social critique.

With: Alice “Bag” Velasquez, Michelle Habell-Pallán
