I just learned about the Levi's workshop in San Francisco. It could be well worth a trip to San Fran. It's open to the public on Sundays and they have free printing workshops. They also have product for sale and the proceeds go to local charities. Amazing!

Our friends at LA RECORD and Wild Records are putting on a groundbreaking show at the Echoplex in LA on July 24th. If you're around, go go go!
Here's a short bit of an article from the LA Times on this scene, and go to the LA TIMES to check out the whole article. Really a wild scene and worth checking out. It reminds me of discovery punk rock music as a kid and that feeling you had in your gut, the rawness!
Reb Kennedy was chasing something. No, it wasnâ€™t the punk sound that inspired him while growing up in working-class Dublin in the â€™70s. It was the punkÂ energyâ€”the raw, authentic, kick-your-butt ethos that the British and American movement evoked. In 2000, at the precipice of an era sanitized by iTunes and at the end of one still slumbering with arena-style shows and velvet ropes, Kennedy walked into a hole-in-the-wall strip-mall bar in Downey, after driving six hours from San Francisco upon merely seeing a photocopied flyer promising a night of â€œMexican Rock and Roll.â€
â€œThe place was packed with underage Mexican kids,â€ says Kennedy. â€œMyself and my wife were the only gringos. The band Lilâ€™ Luis y Los Wild Teens was playing. There was a solo, and then all hell broke looseâ€”total bedlam!â€ After the solo by Luis Arriaga, the band basically gave up on the song theyâ€™d been playing and just trailed off into a ferocious jam.
â€œWhat impressed me was not the musicianshipâ€”they were atrocious!â€ he says with a sturdy Irish brogue. â€œBut there was fantastic energy in what they were trying to do! It went back to the first wave of punk. It was the most honest energy Iâ€™d seen from a band.â€
Kennedy chatted with the group that night and then showed up at their rehearsal, where he soon discovered a song that would get him even more excitedâ€”â€œLa Rebeldona.â€ It was a dirty, nervous and instantly winning vintage-style rock â€™nâ€™ roller, a blend of the Cramps and Chuck Berryâ€”the kind of song that mightâ€™ve warranted police intervention in 1959 with Arriagaâ€™s lascivious growl on â€œRrrrrrrrebeldona.â€
It was brass knuckled through and throughâ€”and it just happened to be sung in Spanish, which may be the only thing that really made it â€œMexican.â€ Inexplicably, Kennedy asked the guys if theyâ€™d like to cut a record. Arriaga says, â€œWe thought,Â Why the hell does this crazy Irishman want to record a Mexican song?â€ The cultural divide was crossed, Kennedy was smittenâ€”and Wild Records was born.
