On October 7, a large group of early West Coast punkers will join together for an extended spoken word show. It's called War Stories: Tales of 70’s & 80’s Punk Mayhem Told By The Perpetrators Themselves and is at the Roxy in LA. Musicians speaking include Abby Travis (The Lovedolls, The Go-Go's, KMFDM), Chip Kinman (The Dils, Rank & File, Blackbird), Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Dave Catching (Tex & Horseheads, The Modifiers, Eagles of Death Metal), Jennifer Finch (L7), Keith Morris (Black Flag, Circle Jerks, OFF!) Mike Watt (Minutemen, Dos, Firehose) and more. Presumably, the performance will find these artists telling the tales of their early days.
