      Alice Bag will appear at Cypress Park Library October 2nd to discuss "Violence Girl"

      Alice Bag was the lead singer of the Bags, the first female fronted punk band to
      play the Masque during the West Coast punk revolution of 1977. Her new book,
      Violence Girl, From East LA Rage to Hollywood Stage is the story of her
      upbringing in East LA, her eventual migration to Hollywood and the euphoria and
      aftermath of the first punk wave. Violence Girl reveals how domestic abuse
      fueled her desire for female empowerment and sheds a new perspective on the
      origin of hardcore, a style most often associated with white suburban males.

      Alice is a long-time blogger, turned author and a former bilingual elementary
      school teacher. An outspoken activist, feminist and a self-proclaimed
      troublemaker, Alice brings her Chicana punk attitude to the printed page in her
      new book Violence Girl, East L.A Rage to Hollywood Stage.

      Alice will join us October 2nd at 6pm with her book "Violence Girl". She'll be
      reading excerpts from her book and performing a couple of acoustic numbers.

      Check out some of Alice's music on soundcloud.
