Just heard the sad news that Hal Negro(Marty Goldberg) of The Satintones died. He was such a lovely man who was quite the fixture in the Los Angeles punk and post punk scene. It seems like I am losing a lot of people from my generation. Ron Athey also relayed to me that artist Liz Young also passed-what a talent.
The Linda Lindas are a teenage girl band from LA featuring two LatinX sisters, a cousin and a close friend. Their music is very power poppy and punk spirited. Thank you sister of the clothe Alice Bag for turning me on to them, I haven’t DJaned since the Feminist Film Festival in Frankfurt in November, 2019 so who knows when I will get another opportunity to be behind the mighty wheels of steel but if i do I am adding the Linda Lindas to my play list.
Am i going bonkers in my senile dottage? I’ll let you all out there be the judge of that, but I find myself really attracted to the disgraced writer James Fry. For some reason I am obsessed with smelling his armpits. He looks like he has a very strong body odour.

In doing my winter solstice cleaning found some photos that the legendary artist Don Bachardy sent of a few portraits he did of me back in the early aughts at his Aunt Monica compound. Mr. Bachardy is such a delightful man, and still quite sexy with a sly almost teenage like fashion sense. I first met Don Bachardy and his late lover Christopher Isherwood through Michael Reynolds and his older lover Walter who were neighbors of the famous couple. This was back in the early 1980s. Michael and Walter were big fans of The Afro Sisters and would come to all of our shows. Michael had been involved with Walter since he was 15 years old. The last time i saw Don Bachardy in Berlin about ten years ago he said that Michael has now passed away.

Tramps Like Us tells a virtually unknown saga of Joe and his buddies and girlfriends on a queer journey through 70s and 80s United States. Tramps lifts the lid on that increasingly utopian analog and mystic searching party time (sweet punk psychedelia) fueled by a flight from repressive family violence dropping us off at the traumatic edge of the early AIDS crisis. Joe banishes the cliché of the 70s and 80s by telling a really deep and felt account of sex and friendship before anyone or anything told us to stop.

PARTICIPANT AFTER DARK is a virtual performance, screening, and event space launched by PARTICIPANT INC in October 2020. The site hosts artist projects commissioned specifically for the AFTER DARK web platform and remote viewing. PARTICIPANT invited artist Glen Fogel to design and develop AFTER DARK. Artists will work with Fogel through the Fall/Spring 2020-21 season, inhabiting the site and fully modifying it for their projects' specific needs. AFTER DARK is conceived of as a blank slate, removing as much institutional framework as possible. The site will only present current projects, and will often go ’dark’ in between events.
