Alice Bag - Violence Girl:
East L.A. Rage to Hollywood Stage, a Chicana Punk Story

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: East L.A. Rage to Hollywood Stage is the story of her upbringing in East L.A., 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.
