“…Only a rare eye can make such intense people doing intense things on sticky floors so unforgettable, even decades later… One of the least known from our Mabuhay/Deaf Club days is John Roberts. I am so glad John’s pictures, thought lost for decades, are now out and available, so everyone can see them. His work is as important as anyone’s out there. Maybe better.“ - Jello Biafra
Phranc, the all-American Jewish lesbian folksinger, pays a musical tribute to the Los Angeles Woman’s Building, a groundbreaking collective that fostered feminist art and artists.
With this concert, she reflects on her personal experiences as a teenager at the Feminist Studio Workshop and the significant influences that have helped shape her career. Phranc is a renowned recording and visual artist who was part of the vibrant L.A. punk scene in the 1970s. She has recorded for Rhino Records, Island Records, and Kill Rock Stars and toured internationally with many acclaimed and notorious artists.
Folk singer Phranc opened for several famous artists in the 1980’s, including Hüsker Dü, Violent Femmes, Billy Bragg, and The Smiths (Johnny Marr top photo). She also opened for Morrissey on his first U.S. solo tour in 1991.
