I really believe rock ‘n roll can change the world. Can, has and will. Well, okay music, because before there was rock ‘n roll there the waltz, jazz, samba…all forbidden, scandalous, shocking and prone to cause dancing which could lead to more horizontal and well as cerebral activities!

My musical revelations and cultural epiphanies coincided with punk rock; I cut my heart on it and just kept going. And as an Angeleno, I am proud of our SoCal music tradition from the early days of Crenshaw Avenue jazz combos through now, which is why we feature a lot of punk rock movies with lots of local heroes and history on movie night
