As you probably know, quite a few of the images in Forrest Black’s and my California Deathrock book were shot at the old skool Release the Bats nightclub in Long Beach. Tonight, we’ll be celebrating the release of BLT 25: Black Leather Times Punk Humor and Social Critique from the Zine Revolution with our friends there. We’ll have both the CADR and BLT books on hand, if you’d like to pick up signed copies. Plus, we’ll be giving away 50 vintage copies of the Repulsive Drunkenness back issue of BLT to Release the Bats revelers! Legendary deathrock band Kommunity FK (who appear in the CADR book) will be playing a special midnight music set which is not to be missed!
KOMMUNITY FK LIVE at RELEASE THE BATS!!
That’s right! KFK returns home to RTB after nearly ten years with a very special midnight performance on Friday April 22nd!
