This event is 21 and over
Why don't you do yourself a favor and get this through your moldy rind ASAP: Future Punx are punk. Punker than the Tragedy tattoo you got in 2006 and try to forget about. Punker than your "transgressive" Soundcloudnoisewankery and the fascist imagery you childishly borrowed for the logo. Punker than your dangly earring and your stupid switchblade that you will literally never use, and yes dear reader, punker than YOU.
French Vanilla is a feminist art-punk band based in Los Angeles consisting of Max Albeck (drums), Ali Day (guitar/bass), Sally Spitz (vocals), and Daniel Trautfield (bass/sax). They regulate the dance floor with socially sensitive lyrics, vocal freneticism, punchy basslines, and catchy sax. Half-driven by a desire to challenge the established SoCal music scene, dominated by a few influential (male) tastemakers, and half by a desire to hang out with friends, FV started in LA's queer punk underground and it is in these spaces that they feel the most at home. The band's ideology assumes the generative nature of women's and/or BFF's collaboration, and they hope to spread this message until all dude-rock bands cease to exist. More than anything, FV wants you to have fun at their shows and they deliver performances filled with infectious energy and enthusiasm.
